Do you feel that your style is letting you down?
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 feel that you can't afford to look good.
Or you don’t recognise who you are anymore and feel like you have lost your way when it comes to style.
Why is it important to pay attention to your style?
My own style was not always fabulous.
I did not feel that I had time to pay attention to my clothes or worry about accessories and details.
But guess what?
When I didn't pay attention to my appearance and the way I looked, I started to feel really bad about myself.
I stopped feeling feminine or pretty and I hated looking at myself in the mirror. I did not recognize that frumpy woman who looked older than her years and was not showing an image of the confident, fun, enterpreneurial woman that I am!
Not only will you see someone you don’t relate to, so will others.
The way you look should tell something about you. Your style should reflect your personality and your outlook on life.
Did you know that people make up their mind about you in just a few seconds?
Scary, but true!
If your style does not reflect who you are and how you want to feel or if you don't feel comfortable in the clothes that you wear, it will affect your happiness, opportunities and confidence.
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!

What Previous Participants Are Saying
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
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
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
Bonus 1: private facebook group with expert stylist
Through doing, practising and feedback is how you learn!
Many of the 21 steps participants practise the style steps in our private community. They answer their style assignments and upload their images.
Although this is optional, experience has taught us that women who actively particpate in the group will get the most out of the course.
You will learn the most through DOING and the feedback you will receive from our stylist as well as the other participants is invalueable!

Personal stories from Jamie and Ellen!
"Style metamorphosis! My picture on the left was my idea of adding color to my wardrobe. A big Oops on the warm brown capris, the white t-shirt which cut me in half and the warm orange bag and scarf. I could not have explained to you at the time why this outfit did not work. I feel like Sylvia and Ruth have taught us the “why” of style, not just what to wear. I’m excited for the next phase."
I'm finally learning to embrace my personal style, and know what looks good and doesn't, and then make educated decisions on what I wear.
I still need tons of feedback and to continue learning, so I'm so glad the style club is here!"
