From the Editor's Desk

Ok, so guys, my inbox has been bombarded with e-mails these past few months from women (and men) who need help with their fashion issues. I apologize if I haven’t gotten back to you as quickly as promised but I really need to sleep and eat ;-) It’s simply a little hard to keep up, with the website and blog, and all, plus two new fashion projects on the way *secret for now*.

New Feature at Coming on Tuesday, Nov. 3rd!

I love and appreciate that people turn to me for advice, but I often have to answer the same questions. I'm also busy planning my two new projects so yup, my schedule and energy level get pretty much splattered everywhere.

However! It just hit me that I should share the Q&A's by publishing on my site so that people can find more practical information. Most of the articles are very general, so the content might not answer your specific questions.

In my previous issue I talked about creating a website feature where you can submit your questions and have the content published on my website.

… Well, it’s about to become a reality!

On Tuesday, November 3rd, you’ll find an “Ask for Advice” –link where you can send in your questions (adding a picture is integrated in this system) and receive help. After submitting your form you’ll have to wait for me to review it. It works almost as a forum, but it’s more restricted because I have to review and probably research your questions before I can accept and publish it. This is to avoid spam and non-serious inquiries.

Another awesome thing is that you can also share your ideas and comments on the questions!

I want to bring all of you sweet readers together and let you share your own thoughts on the topic!

Now that it’s out of the box, let’s continue with the latest website updates for the past 2 (and half, ooops a little behind schedule) weeks..

4) New article: Plaid Scarves

Plaid scarves are popular and have evolved into different chic designs. For me the square Palestinian scarf style is over used and yes, OUTDATED, as I keep seeing them on almost every 13 year old girl and boy. To help you on your journey to looking chic, I’ve gathered the best and plaid scarf styles from around the Net for us stylish women. Read more
