Who am I. That is a very good question. In a nut shell, or chocolate wrapper, I am a woman of faith, wife, mother of two, and fashionista. Owner of JackieStyle and Founder of Funky Freezer Girls. I'm passionate about enhancing personal image branding through wardrobe and accessory selection, skin care and cosmetic application and social media brand management.
Do you ever wonder what your image/style is saying about you?
Are you “Unforgettable” in a positive way? This is what each of the attendees where able to discover.
“Hello, Unforgettable” the master class this last month. The locations an intimate elegant setting allowed for guest to open up for learning and some networking.
Topics covered were “Color Matters”, “What’s My Personality?”, and Body Type importance. Everyone learned something new to help them create an Unforgettable style.
Here’s a few things they said:
“It was amazing to see you in action.” Ms. S,
“Attended a fantastic Style & Image seminar yesterday called “Hello, Unforgettable!” Jackie Wheeler (Jackie Style), Style & Image Coach, taught it and knows a thing or two about looking your best by knowing your COLORS, BODY TYPE and STYLE PROFILE. I learned I’m a “Classic/Dramatic!” Ms. H.
I’m looking forward to to offering 3 more webinars and corresponding workshops over the next few months. I’ve included the dates below.
How are you doing with social media for your business?
How many different platforms are you using?
Are you consistent? This is the big question…
I want to encourage you that consistency is key to your social media success. Consistent with the number of posts per week, the content is consistent with the message you want to send and with engaging with your followers.
First, posting everyday is the best, even a couple times a day of well planned content, but once a month is lacking and you’ll lose your audience. If you don’t feel you can be consistent don’t start yet. Take an assessment of what you are able to do. FaceBook is the biggest most known platform and a great place to begin. Start with a few times a week and work up.
Consistency in content helps your audience know what your all about and what they can expect from you. When you post something out of “character” or “Brand” it can affect your likes, comments, shares and follows.
Lastly, consistency in engaging with your audience; making sure you thank, comment and react to anything your audience has posted in a timely manner. Whether it’s good or bad. If this is an area you are feeling challenged in, I can help.

Does packing for a trip, whether business or pleasure, make you crazy? I hear this over and over with my clients. Here’s a quick tip to help you when you pack in the future.
If you are attending a Conference or an Event with a “planned” agenda, print the agenda prior to starting your packing. Many agendas will even give you an heads up as to what is appropriate during each session. Ex: Business Casual, Business Smart, Cocktail or Formal. Take a look at all the events and visualize how you wish to show up. What you want to look like. Then starting pulling the pieces from your closet you feel would work for each event/meeting. I like to mix and match so I’ll try to keep to somewhat of a color theme. Write everything down on the agenda you are planning on taking. Make sure you include your accessories, shoes and other incidentals you’ll need for each outfit.
Let’s say your not going on a business trip but vacation where there is no agenda to print. Make your own. Get a piece of paper and write out each day you’ll we away… include your travel days. If you know specific things you’ll be doing add them to your packing list. Ex: beach, hiking, attend wedding and the like. Then starting pulling those items you want for those experiences. Write them all down. This also helps to determine if you have everything you need for the trip and can create your shopping list.
Why write them all down? Let’s say something happened to your luggage you now have a list of every item in your suitcase. Still feel frustrated by the daunting idea of packing? You can alway enlist me to pack for you.
I have a packing list pre-typed you receive by emailing Jackie@thejackiestyle.com. Write packing list in the subject line. 🙂
I have been in the Skincare, makeup, image industry for 20+ years helping women see their beauty. Everything from everyday makeup, wedding day, pageant, photo shoots, and TV interviews. Today I was able to have a first. I was the makeup artist on location for a national TV program doing a shoot here in Phoenix. It was an all day gig AND so fun.
Here’s a couple of pics from the day. I’ll post the show when it airs.
Three generations. By the pool.
Coordinating 3 generations.
Behind the scenes.
Thanks for sharing in my excitement. I just had to share right away. Someone else took the pics of me doing my thing. I’ll update this post when I receive them.
I thought when I started the 40 Hanger Challenge it would be done and over it by now. Somehow, I have this idea to keep going longer. Now it is Spring in AZ, mostly 80’s but have seen a few high 90’s already. Which means the February 40 hanger pieces no longer work.
Here’s what I’ll be focusing on to freshen my 40 hangers:
Pops of color (Purple of course, pinks, blues)
White capri’s, jeans,
Shorts – dressy and casual
I already have most of these items in my boxes and will need to find them.
I will also be looking for cute up-to-date sandals and peep toe shoes.
What are you looking to add to your wardrobe this Spring?
I have been living the 40 Hanger Challenge since February 1st and it was suppose to end on February 28th. I felt it needed a little more time. Not totally sure how I feel about this but I am doing it anyway.
Here’s what I’ve discovered. Some of the pieces I thought I would wear a lot never came out of the closet. I have been replacing those items with ones I want to wear. Weather in the Phoenix (AZ) metro area in February is wacky. Trying to predict what the best items for this was and is hard. Although March/April will stay in the 80’s mostly. It is also hard to get me photographed before I am running out the door or changing in to “mommy clothes”. You know the “mommy clothes”, the ones a mom wears when making dinner, cleaning, doing bathes and taking care of sick kids.
Here’s some photos of what I have put together.
White v neck sweater, cami, jeans and scarf
Print capri, chambray button down w/ cami
Red jacket, print top, black trouser jeans

Black wrap top, black capris, purple knit jacket, scarf. Worn with boots

I am continuing this challenge into April. Wish me luck. Transitioning the closet to spring is the next step. I’ll take a group shot of the current 40 before I move things out.
I knew this challenge would be hard. I started with a bang and have been dragging the last month or so. BUT, I am still moving forward, inching maybe but moving forward. Here’s the latest I’ve finished.
The Blessed LIfe was a little harder for me to get through not because it’s a hard read but it worked on my heart along the way so I took my time in taking it all in.
And because I am a mom and read about 20-30 minutes each kid I will include all these Junie B. Jones books C boy and I have been reading since the new year. These books crack us up.
I’m looking forward to the next book I’ve decided to re-read. I think it will help me keep on task.
I am amazed at the hours it is taking me to go through my closet. If you decide to attempt this challenge be aware it will take you several days if you have a stuffed full closet. Over the long weekend I think I gave it 5 + hours. This did include multiple interruption from my silly boys. AND I am still NOT done.
Working on making it happen.
I have filled 4 containers of various sizes of 1) the clothes I want to keep after the challenge, 2) ones that don’t fit right now, and 3) seasonal items. There is also two large shopping bags FULL ready for the next “Switch & Ditch“. I should count the actual number leaving my closet forever. (Side note, I never did get a full count but I am still pulling clothes out)
So much stuff! Just 2 of the bins I filled.
Lastly, I am really working the mix and match angle I love so much. Really figuring out which pieces I truly enjoy wearing and the maximum number of looks I can get out of them. I really want all my outfits to represent me and not just an “easy way out”.
Here are the bags that left forever… oh! and a box of 10 pairs of shoes.
Good bye, forever.
Have you taken an assessment of your closet? How is that going?
