Hello {!firstname}

This month I've been thinking about finances and clothes shopping (follow that link for the opportunity to win a free Conscious Shopping Mini-Course).

I've written up a style gallery article on another lovely client.

And answered another great question from a reader.

If you're finding your body shape is changing and you no longer know what to wear you'll be interested in this special offer.

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).

Are You a Conscious Shopper?

I don't know about you, but I've been encouraged by the current world economy to take a closer look at my finances. I've been revising income forecasts, scrutinizing expenses and updating budgets.  

It feels as if we're moving into a more responsible era, where over consumption feels wrong. So it felt like an appropriate time to review Jill Chivers' "Conscious Shopping 6 Week Mini Course" (something I've had on my to do list for a while!)

Strange how things happen: I was at a business networking event in Sydney recently and finally met Jill in person (we'd Skyped, but not met before)! I told her I was reviewing her course and she let me know she's currently giving the course an overhaul based on feedback she's received.

I'm delighted to let you know she gave me the opportunity to review the updated course before it was released (so I was even able to influence its content a little)!

I really like the revised course. It represents great value for money and gives excellent advice for becoming a more conscious shopper. However, even more than that it encourages you to understand your poor habits and build a better relationship to shopping with exercises you can get started on straight away. Read my review article.

Jill has generously offered 1 lucky reader a free conscious shopping course. Simply tell us your worst shopping disaster either as a comment at the bottom of this page or as a comment on my facebook post. I'll announce the winner in both places on 21st August.

Free Body Shape Assessment

Do you know your body shape and how to dress for your shape? Are you finding that your changing body shape is making it harder to know what to wear? Does everything seem to make you look heavy and dowdy? If you'd like to know what flatters your shape you'll find out when you enter your true body proportions into the My Private Stylist online eStyles program.

The My Private Stylist online computerized program takes your body proportions (I'll enter these for you -- see below) and gives you recommendations for the clothing shapes that suit your particular proportions. It teaches you what to look for in clothes and accessories, making it easier to shop.

In a moment of madness, as a special gift to you I am offering a free body shape assessment worth $25 with your order of the My Private Stylist e-styles program. Valid on all orders placed before 22 August 2012.

Simply order your My Private Stylist program, but leave your body profile blank. I'll email you with the photos and information you need to send me to assess your proportions. Then I'll enter them into your eStyles program and let you know its ready. If you don't receive the email from me within 12 hours, check your junk mail, if my email isn't there contact me and let me know.
