Jane's Jottings

Hello {!firstname}

Oops! Only just made it with the newsletter this month -- where did May go ;D?!

I love the way my business attracts clients from all over the world (both online and in-person)! The wonderful power of the internet!

This month lovely ladies have come to me from Singapore,  Japan, and Tasmania, as well as from regional NSW and locally. It's been a good and busy month! Most in-person clients have been looking for help with building a more pleasing wardrobe.

Of course the ebook I'm collaborating on should help with this (see my update on progress below), but remember giving your look a makeover is easier if you remember my "6 steps to style" approach (see the right hand column on my website for the 6 steps).

See my answers to more of your questions.

I'll be away travelling (for pleasure) in June (the UK) and July (the US), but I will try and get out small newsletters.

Enjoy this month's Style Snippets. Until next month, all the best


PS I always welcome your feedback, so please contact me with anything you'd like to see either on the website or in this newsletter (reply to this email or use the Contact Me link below).

Personal Style eBook Update

Well, Jane and I (yep: Jane and Jane ;D) are making good progress on our ebook collaboration. However, it's taking longer than we anticipated to complete this project (doesn't everything take longer than you think?).

Last month I went to Canberra (where the other Jane lives) for a photo shoot with 11 lovely ladies who volunteered to be our "models" for the ebook. Jane had picked them based on their style personalities. 

The day was great fun and we got lots of great photos too - you'll see the best of them in the ebook. Jane's daughter Hannah is a professional photographer and she took the photos.

We're now going through iteration after iteration of the ebook and we're also creating a couple a bonus ebooks, for example one contains a style personality quiz and another will have a list of shops where you can buy the looks.

Since I'm not back until the end of July the new target is to release the ebook at the beginning of September.

If you volunteered to review the ebook when its ready -- thank you. I was bowled over by the number of responses I got!  I'll have to figure out some way to choose the reviewers!

We now have a name for the ebook, it's going to be: "Your Personal Style Formula".  Do you like the name?

Building An Inspirational Wardrobe

When you've got the fundamentals of style mastered (grooming, understanding your best colors, and dressing to flatter your body shape) and start to understand your personal style preferences (the subject of our new ebook, see an introduction to personal style here) you can have some fun giving your wardrobe a makeover.

One of my tips for this is to start with a capsule wardrobe. This is simply a mix and match wardrobe suitable for 1 or more lifestyle areas in your life, such as work or socializing. 

Another way to make your wardrobe more interesting is to accessorize. It can also be the cheapest way to make your outfits seem fresh and "new" again. This articie gives you some tips on accessorizing. I also highly recommend the Accessory Magic eBook by Diana Pemberton-Sikes for a definitive look at Accessorizing.

Your Questions Answered

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.

Q: What would be my best look? 

This girl has assessed her body proportions and is ready to change her look.

A: It's challenging answering a question like this because it's so broad. I try and answer some of her questions...

Women's eStyles Video

I've added a video to summarize what the women's estyle program is all about. For those who prefer to watch a video rather than read, I hope it represents a good summary of what the estyles program is all about.
