“A chatty, fun and often useful guidebook of beauty tips, fashion advice and DIY projects for women of a certain age….Warm, spirited, and ultimately sincere.” (Shelf Awareness)
“Style, beauty and just-let-it-go tips for the 40-plus set, hilariously delivered by the author of The Three-Martini Playdate.” (People)
“Funny, compassionate . . . [advocates] a little relaxation and rationality . . . somewhere between ‘sitting on the sofa all day and spending five hours a day at the gym.’” (Los Angeles Times Book Review)
“Although You Look Fine, Really is loaded with useful tidbits, what I love best is the way Mellor urges women…to be grateful for their lives. Her point: Appreciate what your…life holds instead of focusing on what you lack. That gratitude will free you to embrace midlife, wrinkles and all.” (Chicago Tribune)

The world, apparently, thinks women need a makeover. If their teeth are less than white from the love of a strong cup of tea, they must be bleached to a blinding brightness. Waists should be whittled, nether regions made smooth and hairless or adorned with hearts or landing strips. Thighs must be sculpted, noses straightened, arms toned. Our homes must be spotless, well-designed showplaces, our dress size zero. Now that forty is the new thirty, there’s no excuse to be anything less than stunning -- right?
Not quite, says Christie Mellor. Filled with real style and beauty tips, and more information about lipstick than a woman has a right to know, You Look Fine, Really helps any female over the big 4-0 become her truly fabulous self, without injecting toxins into her forehead. In short, kicky sections like "Foundation: Your Own Personal Vinyl Siding," "Your Midlife Fashion Crisis: Now What?" and "Survival Skills for the Mature Woman," Mellor inspires women to reclaim their personal style and uncover their inner fun goddess.
