Jane's Jottings

I sincerely hope you've got your holiday outfits sorted by now! Even if you don't know exactly what you'll wear for each event, if you have a few outfits worked out you can easily choose one on the day, to suit the weather and your mood!

I'm finding Instagram a handy tool for remembering the outfits I wore. And, thanks to one of my Style with Confidence students, Sarah, I came across a website that generated this image of the nine 2017 Instagram posts that got the most likes. It's interesting that it's photos of me in various outfits that work better than anything (better than clients and friends in their outfits).

When I started my website, 10 years ago, I never intended posting photos of me. It's all about you and your style after all! Perhaps photos of me in my outfits are helping to give you inspiration for your style -- I do hope so!

I didn't always have my style worked out (you can read more about me and how I got started here), but life's so much easier now that I know what I like and what works for me. I also invest some time reviewing my style and maintaining my wardrobe every season. It's interesting to note how my style preferences change over time.

If you're ready to improve your style and want to learn some of the key style basics enrollments are now open for the next Style with Confidence course. It's all online, so it doesn't matter where you are in the world. You can enroll and get started here.

If you're still looking for the perfect gift have a look at my gift voucher options below. And if you'd like to receive one of these yourself, do let your loved ones know!

The reader's question I've answered this month (see below) should help put the finishing touches to your outfits.

Wishing you a happy (and stylish) Christmas and holiday season.

Enjoy this month's Style Snippets. Until the New Year! Yours in style

Product & Service Updates

Style with Confidence Online Course

Whenever I ask women what they'd most like my help with these are the main issues that come up, can you relate?
  • some sort of body shape issue to hide, such as no waist, a large bust, a muffin top, middle-age spread, bottom heavy, or being short (we really are very critical of ourselves!)
  • stress when working out outfits, both for every day and especially for special events
  • how to dress younger, yet still be age appropriate?
  • how to be more stylish - contemporary yet not 'too try-hard'?
  • many questions about what style of tops, dresses etc would suit
  • trouble finding suitable clothing for their age and shape
These women realize that if they could be confident they looked good they'd feel better about themselves. And understanding how to consistently put together flattering outfits they loved would save them both time and money.

And that's how this online course came into being!

I first started learning about clothes and style because I knew I wasn't always getting my look right and that bothered me. I've now helped many lovely women to consistently create a look and wardrobe they love. As you might imagine, it's very satisfying when a client tells me I've changed her life by helping her transform her style. Even if the difference I've made hasn't actually been life changing most of my clients tell me they're enjoying the compliments they're now getting about how they look.

I've worked with women of all shapes and sizes and have come to see recurring patterns in where they're getting stuck and why. It's all down to a lack of know-how. And that's what this style course addresses.

Yes, there is a lot of style advice available on line. However, even if the information is correct, it can be challenging to work out how to apply it to yourself without some professional, objective help.

In this course I personally assess your proportions, give guidance, review outfits and answer questions every step of the way. So, if you join us you'll be with a small group of women in a friendly and supportive environment.

The Style with Confidence online course is now open for enrollments and you can get started straight away. Click here for details and to enroll.

The Gift of Style

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 would love 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, for the online MyPrivateStylist personalized style guide (for the MenOfStyle online personalized style guide), and for my online Style with Confidence course.

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).

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.
