Jane's Jottings

Hello {!firstname}

It was perfect weather 2 Sundays ago for the Mona Vale annual market. And good to meet so many lovely women. I posted a photo here, over on my facebook page (you don't need a Facebook account to see it).

Thank you, if you answered my short survey last month. The overwhelming verdict was that you'd like more articles on dressing for your shape and seasonal outfit ideas. And that you're interested in online workshops and style courses. So, I'll definitely be focussing more attention on each of those areas. I also received some really lovely and useful comments, so thank you.

The majority voted to keep hearing from me on a monthly basis, rather than more frequently (which is definitely what I wanted to hear ;D!). One woman voiced my sentiments when she said "If you're producing a newsletter every month I feel you'll be able to include articles of better quality rather than having to 'fill up' a couple of pages with just anything". Exactly!

This month I'm running a few live workshops. If you're here in Sydney I hope you'll come along. Places are limited so do book now to avoid missing out.

I've also been running a few fun private 'Dressing for your shape' workshops recently.

I've added a style story to my 'Style Makeover Gallery'. The lovely Jan has been a client for about 5 years now. She first used my personal styling services when she needed professional photos for her website back in 2009 (was it really that long ago?!). You can see some of those photos here. Over the last year we've been making changes to her style and her wardrobe to make them work for her current lifestyle. Here's Jan's style update story.

And here's my answer to another great reader's question.

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