Each month I pick 1-3 questions I've been
asked that I think other readers will be
interested in and publish them here. You can ask me questions
or share your style story either directly on my website or through
my contact me form.
I'd particularly like to know your style questions and to see or
hear your trend observations. Come on,
don't be shy!

What's In a Name?
If you are already an ePortfolio client you may
have noticed that the program has had a name change recently? In fact,
it's now had several name changes over it's lifetime. It started life,
in the offline, downloadable version, as the Style ePortfolio. Then
when it moved online earlier this year it became the eStyle program.
Ann (the program's creator) has recently been taking some marketing
advice and as a result the latest name for the program is My Private
Through all the name changes the program itself
has always been an excellent way to take the guess work out of dressing
to flatter your body shape. And it gets better with each large and
small improvement. This latest online version in particular is
Of course the program only works if you correctly
identify your body proportions (see below).

Confirm Your Body Proportions
Ever since I started offering the online styles
program I have been offering an online body shape analysis service. I
realized that many people find it hard to assess their body proportions
objectively. And, especially if a person's proportions don't fall
obviously in one category, an experienced eye is needed.
As part of this service I explain how to take the
set of photos needed. Sometimes a couple of takes
at the photos is needed to make sure they don't provide a distorted view or to
make sure an outline is clear. And sometimes I need to ask a few
clarifying questions. Often it takes me at least an hour to get
everything ready for my analysis, to do the analysis and to create the
report. I've been offering this service for US$79, which is less than
my hourly rate.
Now Ann (the program creator) has added a photo
help offer in the order section of the My Private Stylist program. She
has found a way to do this for US$25, which seems incredible value for
money to me and there's no way I can match this price. So, while I will
still offer my service, in case my clients would like my personal
touch, I suspect most people will use the cheaper service (I'm sure I
You can access this new service using the 'Need
Help' button available from the 'Order Portfolio' menu. You will soon
be able to use the new service to check your
proportions even if you've already purchased your ePortfolio.
