When shopping, we often buy what looks good in the store, in a magazine, on TV, or on someone else. We see a beautiful color or style but don’t look (or don’t know how to see) beyond the clothes to evaluate if it brings out OUR personal beauty. At home, each time you put the item on, somehow it just doesn’t “feel” right. It should (it’s such a great blouse!), so you try it again and again, but each time it goes back in the closet. When you have a wardrobe that fully expresses your essence and appropriately matches your color and style, you will feel an abundance of things to wear.
When you don’t really know what you are looking for, you will continue to buy things that don’t fit what you really need. But once you have your personal Color Palette and Style Guide, you have a focus . . . a guidance system, and shopping will be completely streamlined! With your color swatches in hand, you’ll look only for your colors and styles, and disregard the things (even entire store sections!) that aren’t right for you.
Most of us have made a lot of “shopping mistakes.” Our closets are full of clothes with price tags still on, clothes we wore only once, clothes we keep because they were expensive and we feel guilty throwing them out. We spend hundreds of dollars on clothes we don’t even like that are simply taking up space in the closet! We buy new things for special functions even when it’s beyond our budget. After you have your Color Palette and Style Guide, you know what to buy and what NOT to buy! This will save you both time and money. When you buy only clothes that are congruent with your colors and style, you’ll build a multi-purpose wardrobe that mixes and matches for all occasions.
Great question. My job is to make your life easier, save you money, and help you discover your personal beauty. When you work with me, you avoid costly shopping mistakes. You won’t need to buy as much or shop as often because everything you buy fully expresses you! And dressing for a special occasion may involve simply wearing something you already have in a different way. You won’t always feel compelled to have to buy something brand new. I once packed a businesswoman for one week in a carry-on suitcase. She had enough outfits for a team event, an awards dinner, three corporate casual days, two business formals, three cocktail parties and three dinners!
Black is a formal neutral (I hesitate to refer to black as a color, it’s not), yet contrary to popular belief, black can make some people look heavier. Unlike the colors in nature, which help create a connection to others, black supports neutrality. On some people it works well as a basic, for others it creates distance rather than connection.
Great question! LIVING COLORS is perfect for the person who is not looking for a “makeover” from the outside in, but who is looking for a way to express him or herself from the inside out. I will show you how to bring forth your inner beauty so that your natural beauty is fully and authentically expressed in how you dress. Living Color clients radiate a glow of confidence, poise and beauty that is unmatched because it is their authentic selves!
Yes. Colors are energy; everything is energy. When you wear your colors, you keep your life force alive, flowing, nurtured and expressed – you can’t help but feel younger and full of vitality. The right colors will enhance and brighten your skin tones giving your skin a natural glow. Wearing your true colors is the new facelift!
My unique color system contains over 4,000 color swatches, and my approach is comprehensive and multi-faceted, a combination of art and science. With me, you will get accurate colors based on your individual color DNA, not a “canned” system with a pre-fabricated or computer-generated set of colors. You have your very own color DNA, which I will identify by selecting one color swatch at a time. In addition, we provide an ongoing support system and curriculum to help you fully express and integrate your personal style into your real life! I am a master colorist with over 25 years of experience. I am a sociologist and an artist, and it is my passion for both that I bring to the process of each client’s personal transformation. Having your colors done is a gift to yourself. When you have your Color Palette done, you will find a sense of balance, connection and vitality.
Make a commitment to “ageless beauty.” With this attitude you’ll find clothes that create a youthful but appropriate look. Wearing your correct colors will also make you look younger and more refreshed. You can have fun dressing at any age. I can even show you how to make sweat pants look fun and flattering. It’s the little details that change the practical into the profound!
I offer a unique program that supports the practical, psychological and spiritual aspects of personal growth, and I am a master at what I do.
The practical approach is for those who want simplicity and efficiency in dressing appropriately each day.
The psychological approach is for those who want to learn to use color to enhance their business or interpersonal relationships.
The spiritual approach is for those who are seeking personal growth and development in the area of authentic self-expression.
Getting your personal Color Palette is the first step to all three approaches. I have a system to support any one or all of the approaches you wish to take.
Come to a free Guest Event and see the possibilities for yourself. If you’re ready to make an appointment, do your Color Palette and Style Consultation first, they are the foundation. After that, I recommend a Clothing Clinic so you can begin applying these principles to your wardrobe. From there, the rest of the process is up to you. You can shop, take classes, have a private wardrobe done in your home or do your interiors.
