Another excellent course! Although this is a stand-alone course, it is also a worthwhile complement to the course on how French women wear colours. Marie-Anne's courses have opened my eyes to the vast combinations that I can create with the items that I already have in my closet. Just the other day, thanks to this particular course, I brought out a thin black silk cardigan that I've had since the mid-90's (and not worn in about 15 years, but hadn't the heart to part with). I've reached for it on a number of occasions now that I have some creative examples to experiment with thanks to this course! And I just love the way I can now make it work ... not to mention how it creates/accentuates my waist! Thank you so much, Marie-Anne!!

I asked Marie-Ann this very question. 'How do I keep a style journal'. Where do I start? Yet all the time this superb course of exactly how has been sat on my laptop waiting for the right moment to begin. As I read and made notes of the previous pages, I could feel my mind answering some of the questions as I went along. Now I can't wait to get started! This has been ever since the beginning of 2020, I have made the definite decision to put the wearing of denim jeans to one side, except for Country Walking, but no more to be worn every day, and also to lose weight. After discussing this with my husband who listened intently, he surprised me by 'upping my wardrobe' with day dresses to get me started. My few pieces of advice are: 1) Don't purchase items more costly than you can afford. 2) Get your husband/partner on your side. 3 ) Know your preferred length for skirts etc. (I made the mistake of buying a skirt that I thought was just right only to find it was too long by nearly four inches! So it cost me an extra £10 to have it altered) A brilliant learning curve.

Excellent class with plenty of simple and useful information. The clothing capsules were absolutely amazing. This truly convinced me of the benefit of planning a wardrobe. It may not be possible; however, I would love to have a list included of recommended places to buy the best cardigans, jeans, jackets etc.

As a recently retired high school teacher, I have been looking at my wardrobe and wondering just what I want to wear, and what my style is. I know that I'm so tired of of shapeless clothes and have been moving my wardrobe to more fitted styles over the past couple of years. This course helped me to identify the pieces that I want to add to my wardrobe to fit the classic style that I love. The style sheets and suggestions for capsule wardrobes are practical and versatile. I have discarded a number of items from my closet that did not fit well, nor flatter my figure in any way. I made a list (in my style journal) of pieces to add and will endeavour to be very strict with myself. Quality not quantity! Thank you so much, Marie-Anne, for this course. I always enjoy listening to your lovely French accent that adds to your enthusiasm for helping women like me get back on track with living a stylish life at any age. Mille mercis du Canada.

This A Touch of Class-ic E course is full of practical advice with a discerning eye for quality and style Marie-Anne teaches us how to see for ourselves what will work for us and why. Her advice makes sense and is relevant to women of all ages. Instinctively I knew what I loved but did not know how to apply it to myself somehow. Its all about body shape; No tricks no surveys or long lists of questions just plain common sense and an abundance of empowering information in order for us to put our best selves forward. With gratitude and best wishes Marie-Anne xxx PHG
