Day in and day out I hear from women who are frustrated by changes that happen to their body as they get older, by a fashion industry that focuses on women who are young, tall and thin and ignores anyone who isn’t all of those things, and by super-sized stores that are overwhelming to navigate. When did this get to be so complicated, they ask?
That’s where I come in. With 30+ years’ experience as a fashion stylist, my focus is on helping women feel good about who they are. I don’t just throw a bunch of stodgy fashion rules at them or try to make them dress like someone they’re not. Instead, I help them recognize those inner qualities that make them special, and show them how to reflect that on the outside through their wardrobe and personal style choices.

These days so many women over 40 are frustrated when it comes to shopping for clothes and creating a wardrobe and personal style they love. When they walk into a store and see only styles designed for teenagers or perhaps their body has changed and clothes no longer fit the way they used to, or their eyes glaze over because there are too many choices and they don’t know where to begin, they are often left wondering if they don’t shop at the right stores, if their budget isn’t big enough or if they need the body of a model to look great.
That’s So You is for the woman who is in a fashion rut, who’s longing for guidance to create a wardrobe and personal style she loves, but doesn’t know where to begin. It’s for any woman (especially those over 35) whose wardrobe screams “good enough” while her heart says “I want to look great.” She will learn how to avoid fashion no-nos, create a signature style, shop with ease, blend comfort and beauty, and, (yay!) age gracefully.
“When it comes to overcoming the inner and outer obstacles that prevent women from feeling terrific about how they look, there’s no one more qualified than Ginger Burr. She is a fashion master!” — Cheryl Richardson, author of New York Times best-sellers Take Time for Your Life and Life Makeovers.
“Finally a book that doesn’t give you set rules. ‘Wear high heels to be stylish’, ‘Don’t leave the house without make-up’, ‘Wear X if your shape is Z’, ‘Every woman needs xyz’. Thankfully you will not find this kind of advice in here.
The book starts out in no uncertain terms that you have to figure out what YOU feel comfortable with and it guides you on that discovery. This is the first book where I feel respected whatever my choice may be.”
“I am in my early 50’s and found this book to contain very useful and practical suggestions. I could hardly put it down when I was reading it, I felt like Ginger Burr was talking to me directly. I read the book 3 months ago and have used her advice since which gives me more confidence when shopping, putting outfits together at home and getting rid of unwanted items. I have also become vegetarian as she has a section on cruelty to animals which I had not thought of before.”

“Last night, I had a huge Board meeting- with new members and an enormous agenda. It was very important. What was more important, was that I was able to get up, introduce myself (and introduce others, traverse the room whenever needed-- all with enormous confidence and without once--not once worrying about how I looked. Why? Because of you!!! I cannot thank you enough for giving me exactly what I was looking for, and needed...the art of being well "put together," despite my shape & size, and the means to let my soul shine so that my "inner" beauty is what really radiates. You have been my guiding beacon for a while, but last night-- your work was a lighthouse of salvation and relief. You are so wonderful and I am blessed for having met you. --Thank you, Ginger for all of your beautiful gifts: your eye, your talent, your humor, and especially-- your patience!”
