On a related theme (that is understanding your shape), if you live in Sydney and can get to Crows Nest this Thursday evening the 16th February I'm hosting a 'Love Your Body: Dress Your Shape' Meetup. Click here for details and to register. Come along with a friend and have some fun!

This month I've also answered a reader's style question (see below) -- it happens to illustrate the type of issues we'll look at in the 'Dressing to Flatter Your Shape' program.

Enjoy this month's Style Snippets. Yours in style


Your Questions Answered

I answer 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 by replying to this email.

Q: 64 overweight and short, will ankle length skirt look ok? from Dorian of Cascade, MD, USA

A: There is still a reasonable choice, in the stores, of long skirts and dresses and this style choice can make a nice dressy, or more bohemian look, if that's your style. Long skirts and dresses are also a great alternative if you prefer to cover your legs and want a change from pants. However, this style can also be tricky for shorter women to pull off. Here I give Dorian some ideas of how to pull off the look. Read my answer...

Dressing to Flatter Your Shape
Online Program Pilot

women's horizontal body shapes

How good would it be if when you opened your wardrobe you saw pieces that all mixed and matched that fitted you perfectly, flattered your proportions and allowed you to quickly, easily and enjoyably get dressed everyday?

Well the aim of this pilot program is to teach you how to do exactly that!

Please don't feel bad about needing help to do this. The thing is you have probably never been taught why clothes work or don't work for you. And even if you worked out how to do it yourself when you were younger your body shape will likely have changed if you've had children and after menopause. Combine that with a fashion industry that typically advertises clothing using models who are slim young women and it's no wonder you got lost! Yet you still want to look and feel good in your clothes -- of course you do, it's important for your self esteem and how others perceive you.

After you've assessed your shape (with my help) you'll start exploring the clothes you already own. Do your clothes fit and flatter you? If not, why not and can they be altered?

Creating flattering outfits is an area most of my clients struggle with. So I'll give ideas for creating outfits that work for you. I'll also personally assess some of your current outfits. Another major challenge can be finding places to shop for age appropriate clothing so we'll also look at shopping options.

With this program my aim to to give you a good amount of interactive support, as well as useful lessons to take your look to a new level, in a supportive environment. Since I'll be giving very personalized support I'm limiting this pilot to a small group of 15 women. However, since I will be working with a group I'll be able to offer this program at a very reasonable price.

If you reply to this email today and let me know you'd like to join the program you may be able to secure one of the 3 remaining spots.
