Keeping it Fresh with Jane Peters

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with ActiveRain, Community Manager

 

This week's Keeping it Fresh is brought to you by Jane Peters.

 

How long have you been in business?                                                      

I have been in business 8 years.

Describe your style.

My style is generally smart casual.  I like plain and fitting rather than frilly and flouncy.  My best colors are blue and red.

What outfit do you own that makes you feel invincible?

I feel invincible when wearing a suit.  I had bought a couple of $1200 suits a few years ago, and feel like $1 million in those, except that one got eaten by a moth :(

What is the biggest fashion faux pas you've made?

I did once go out with a different black boot on each foot.

What celebrity is your style doppelganger?

I think I relate to Diane Keaton.

Best Fashion Advice?

The best fashion advice is to dress, especially for business, is to dress so that they see you and not your clothes.

My style depends on the mood I'm in, and whether the stars are aligned.  Throw in a few robust family activities, and dress can become out of control quickly:-)  Yet, need be, I can generally pull myself together in a hurry! 

I do like Jane's last suggestion about dressing so folks see us instead of our clothes!  My favorite doppleganger would have been Audry Hepburn. . .Unfortunately, I'm not anything like her:-)

I can just imagine hearing that Jane Speak, but with that British accent of hers, and I will stay away from here last line

Cute feature!  (Can a guy say that??)  But you feature one of my favorites ... Jane!  I'm a big fan.  What a personality!  I don't think anything ... even those $1200 suits ... could ever match that personality of hers.  You chose wisely when you picked her this week ...

Very interesting.  I think she looks amazing.  Here in Naples even though it's a $1m 2nd home market we usually wear shorts.  Nice shorts but nothing as wonderful as those in fashion forward cities.

I like what Jane has to say, especially about clients seeing us and not our clothes-just like staging a house-no distractions from the architecture and the soul!

$1,200 suit?  Two of them?  Geesh.  I feel fancy when I put on a pair of $30 slacks and a $15 dress shirt from Kohl's.  I look damn good though.

How fun to learn a little bit more about you, Jane! Love your quote about dressing so the client sees you not your clothes.
