Do you feel that you could look and feel a lot better than you do?

You are not alone! Many women feel that way.

Perhaps you feel you never have the time to look good.

Or maybe your body has changed and you do not know how to dress it anymore.

You may not be happy with your body anymore and feel like hiding it.

Perhaps you have retired and don’t feel that you need to dress up anymore.

Or you don’t recognise who you are anymore and feel like you have lost your way when it comes to style.

Or maybe you feel that you can’t afford to look good.

Why it it important to pay attention to your style?

My own style was not always fabulous.

Especially in those times when I did not feel good about myself or worked from home and did not feel it was necessary to put effort into the way I looked.

But guess what?

If you don’t pay attention to yourself and the way you look, you will start to feel even worse.

You will stop feeling feminine or pretty and may feel you are wasting away. You look in the mirror and see a woman you don’t recognise.

Not only will you see someone you don’t recognise, so will others. The way you look should tell something about you. Your style should reflect your personality and your outlook on life.

If your style does not reflect who you are and how you want to feel, you will start to feel even worse.

Why not do something about it?

I have found that it’s really important to feel good in your clothes.

Not only will you LOOK better, you will also FEEL better. You will feel more CONFIDENT and HAPPY!

And looking better can be a lot easier than you think!

I have learned that taking myself through some simple steps, I can look good every day with little effort.

All that is required is some self knowledge and a few tips and tricks that can instantly make a difference.

What Our Customers Are Saying

"I’ve really enjoyed Sylvia’s style course. At first, I questioned whether I would have time to complete this. But as the days passed, I found myself hooked on learning the new concept and “playing” in my closet to attempt the style assignments. I’m not a “selfie” taking person, but I now have a catalog of outfit photos in my phone and on pinterest.

On the weekends, I’ve found myself putting together outfits for fun, documenting them with a photo and then I’m ready to go with my work week. This has been a great investment of my time. Overall, I now understand why I like certain outfits and how to apply these basic concepts. I highly recommend this course."

Lydia Leigh

"Although I didn’t have the time to really spend on this course, I was able to read each day’s material and took a lot of the information to use each day.

What I enjoyed the most is this information has made me think when I’m putting my outfits together.

One example is that I wore a long necklace with my work outfit recently and I had so many compliments on the necklace with my outfit. I rarely wear necklaces.

This told me to do it more often. It made me think about my outfits. Thank you Sylvia for offering this course. Next time I will put more time into the homework!"

Karen v P

"This course helped me better understand all the elements that went into and make up style.

The assignments for each section were very helpful in thinking through what works for you as an individual.

The course isn’t something that you can do quickly as the assignments took thought. Planning the outfits for each photo assignment took thought as well.

It has enabled me to be a more “conscious” dresser. I really enjoyed the course. The art of personal adornment should not be something we hate or dread, it should be fun. This course was fun!"

Vickie Hutcheson
