Hello {!firstname}

Here in Sydney it's beginning to feel as if the season is changing. It's cooler in the mornings, taking longer for the day to heat up, although nights are still relatively warm and it's very humid.  

For me another indication of the change of season is that the fashion sites and blogs I follow are excitedly talking about the new season's styles and warmer weather clothes are appearing in the shops.

(To complicate things, the designer fashion week shows are previewing styles for Autumn/Winter 2014!)

In next month's Style Snippets I'll be looking at trends in silhouettes and looks for the upcoming fashion season, that is: Autumn/Winter, if you're in the southern hemisphere; and Spring/Summer if you're in the northern hemisphere.

This month I've...

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

More Ways to Interact

I've now added a few more ways for you to interact with me and other readers through my website (see below). So, I'd love it you'd 'like' my website and articles, and enter comments. I always enjoy receiving your feedback.

This is what you can now do...

Facebook and Google Share

Near the top of most pages (eventually it will be at the top of all pages), above the main content, you'll see some buttons. I'm still playing with what should be there, but at the moment you'll see a Facebook Like button and a G+ Follow button. 

If you have a Facebook account you can indicate that you like my website by clicking the 'Like' button. If you have a Google+ account you can follow me there by clicking the 'g+ Follow' button and adding me to one of my circles (all without leaving my website).

page likes

Near the bottom of most pages (eventually it will be at the bottom of all pages) under the 'Like this Page?' sub-heading, you'll see a 'g+1' button and a Facebook 'Like' and a 'Share' button. 

Clicking the 'g+1' button tells Google you like the article on that page. Clicking the Facebook 'Like' button tells Facebook you like the article on that page. You don't have to have either a Google+ or a Facebook account to be able to do that.

If you do have a Facebook account and you'd like to share the article on that page with your friends click the 'Share' button and follow the prompts. 

There are also another 2 share buttons under the comments area, with both a Facebook share button and a Twitter tweet button.

page likes

If you'd like to comment on an article/page you'll find a 'Comments' sub-heading under the 'Like a Page?' sub-heading. Simply enter your comment and click the 'Comment' button. If you have a Facebook account you can have your comment posted on your Facebook wall.

On pages that have been submitted by readers, such as submitted style questions (asked through this form), you can enter comments  through the 'Click here to post comments' link at the bottom of the page.

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.

Product and Service Updates

Style Discovery Fast Start Package

If you're in Sydney (if you're not, see here) and short on time and/or if you'd like me to help you change your style instantly, this style consultation package works really well.  It compresses the style essentials and a mini-session in your wardrobe  into one 4.5 hour session that includes:

  • Identifying what you want your personal style to be
  • A body shape analysis
  • A colour analysis (optional, but recommended, even if you had had your colours done before)
  • 2 hours in your wardrobe trying to create outfits that suit your shape, colouring and personality with clothing and accessories you already own
  • Identifying wardrobe items you could do with to complete outfits that meet your new style criteria
  • Identifying any next steps

(The alternative is to take it slower and take my individual style services one-at-a-time. For instance, start with the colour analysis, master that, then do the dressing for your body shape session, then the personal style discovery session, and so on)
