Jane's Jottings

Hello {!firstname}

I'm just about to leave Sydney to spend 2 months in the UK, so am thinking about my travel wardrobe. Looking at current UK temperatures I can see I'll need some warm clothes. Even though it's Autumn here and Spring over there it's still warmer here! 

This year I'm doing things slightly differently. The main purpose of my trip is to spend time with Mum & Dad, since Dad is not in the best of health. However, since I'll be away from home so long I'm making myself available for colour and style consultations (including wardrobe and shopping) and workshops.

I really enjoying anything to do with colours (such as doing colour analysis, showing ladies how to wear colours in a contemporary way and also wearing colours myself), so I've enjoyed answering this question about colours for a reader. I hope you enjoy reading it too!

If you're a shoe lover you'll want to know this news!

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

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: Orange in Winter Colour Palette? from Linda of Canada

A:  Linda thinks she's a Winter colour season, yet she wears orange and says she gets complements when she wears it. How can that be? Is orange in the Winter colour palette?

Price Reduction on Your Perfect Shoes

As you may already have seen, this year I became an independent shoe stylist for Shoes of Prey, an online shoe company that enables you to create your perfect shoes online (yes, they're available worldwide) using their amazing 3D shoe designer. 

Recently they've been playing with their pricing model to try and make their beautiful shoes more affordable to more women (I already think they're amazing value anyway!). Prices used to be set by heel height. They're now changing this to 3 different base prices (for flats, heels and shoe boots) plus a charge for extras, such as special materials and decorations.

The good news is that, for the time being, there is only a base price (no extra charges). They don't know yet, when this will change, but it will have to change soon -- these prices are amazingly low for such high quality custom designed, handmade shoes! See for yourself.
