Jane's Jottings

It's that time of year again! Here in Sydney summer is definitely upon us and already it feels as if things are winding up (and down) for Christmas and holidays!

For many women this time of year is challenging with all the demands of family, work and social events. And many of us add to the pressure by being overly optimistic about what we have time to achieve!

To remove one of the pressures I highly recommend you work out the events and activities you have coming up and then work out 1 or 2 outfit options for each of them.

For ideas see this article, I wrote it a couple of years ago, but it's still relevant, and I've now updated it with a few more outfit ideas. Do please contact me (simply reply to this email) if you'd like my help.

If you're looking for inspiration for a gift idea and would rather give an experience than more 'stuff', see below.

I've also answered a reader's question: Linda of Victoria, Australia, wants to know if it's appropriate to wear shorts when she's over 60. Read my answer here.

Early next year I'm going to be running a second online style pilot, incorporating feedback I received from the 14 lovely ladies who participated in the last one. If you struggle to put together flattering outfits and think you might be interested in learning how to do this watch out for more information soon (reply to this email if you'd like information now).

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).

Product and Service Updates

The Gift of Style

gift voucher Style Makeover Gift

If you're looking for a meaningful, lasting gift for a relative or friend consider giving some form of style makeover gift voucher.

You do have to be a little careful with this -- think about whether the person has ever expressed the desire for some help with their image, or whether they will be offended that you think they need help!

Of course, if this is a gift you'd like for yourself do drop some heavy hints ;D (perhaps forward this newsletter?)!

I offer gift certificates for any of my image services (either in person here in Sydney, or any of my online services), for my "Your Personal Style Formula" ebook, and for the online MyPrivateStylist personalized style guide (and for the MenOfStyle online personalized style guide).

To order simply reply to this email or phone me on 0403 747 199 and let me know which gift you'd like to give, or what amount you'd like the voucher for. I'll send you a PayPal payment request and ask for details of the person the gift is for (to create the voucher).
