A few days ago I told you all about beauty / energy profiling and encouraged you to take the assessment. Have you done so already and are making progress? I realise you may not be finished yet, but if you like to discuss further, you can comment below or ask questions and send feedback in a special thread I created in the Style forum: beauty profiles and dressing your truth.
Today I will tell you a bit more about my profile and the full Dressing your Truth course.
What is my profile?
As I watched all the videos of the beauty profiling, I kept trying to find out my own. It was great listening to all the clues and hints and I found that it was actually easier to rule out profiles rather than choose certain types based on what Carol was saying. Although I recognised traits of myself in all 4 profiles, it quickly became clear to me that I was predominantly a 3. That had been my initial reaction as a I saw Carol and what she was wearing, but it just became more and more clear as the courses progressed. However, I also have a lot of a 4 in me.
What does it mean to be a 3?
Type 3 is the rich / dynamic woman. Here are some more characteristics:
- Our primary element is hydrogen / fire
- Primary Movement: Active, Reactive
- Natural Gift: Action—“Let’s get to work and get it done!”
- Dominant Quality: Swiftly moving us forward to our desired outcomes.
- Beauty Code Word: Hot!
We can be quite competitive and intense and people may have told you to just relax, or stop being so demanding or tone it down! We can be very task oriented and sometimes forget about the people.
We are also very passionate and compulsive. We value honest communication, credibility and realism. We get to the point.
A quote from the book that resonated with me:
“It is important that you acknowledge and allow your energy to have a swift, pushing nature. If you try to soften your movement and override it with apologies, it can be like a burning furnace that has no vent and will suddenly go into reactive mode—what we call rage! When you do not allow your Dominant Type to lead in your expressive self, you lose your connection with who you are. You will be out of balance from your active/reactive energy if you try to soften or sedate yourself“.
What will you learn in the Dressing your Truth course?
Once you have discovered your beauty profile, you will select the Dressing Your Truth course for your type. You will then learn how to dress true to your nature by learning the five elements for your type. These include:
- Design lines
How will I apply these findings to my own life?
I was amazed by how many of the findings seemed right to me. All the uneven lines, the asymmetry, the colours; they just seemed to fit. Even though I have just bought a colourful wardrobe capsule in very bright colours, I always knew that those were not really ‘my colours’, which is why I chose to buy them cheaply and will enjoy them for the time being. Although it is worth noting that these are the colours of type 4, which is a strong secondary type for me. However, I was right in adding much more colour to my wardrobe!
What I have gained though is an even deeper understanding of what my style personality is and which colours, lines and patters suit me. Does that mean that I will follow the guidelines strictly? I would say: no. I still like to indulge in trends. I still want to express myself in ways that are not totally me, but that are a part of me. For me that is part of being dynamic too. Moving around and switching and also staying true to my style statement: modern freedom.
But I will try to incorporate many of the guidelines given for my style type. The colours for my type seem right to me and I want to incorporate more of them in my wardrobe. The bulky necklaces were already a favorite of mine and I will try to make them even bolder and bulkier. Strong triangular lines and asymmetry were also already favorites and I will aim for more garments that emphasize this even more. I will even have another look at my hairstyle again, which I’m still not 100% happy with (will I ever?) and possibly make it more texturized.
From the book: “Your nature is to be dynamic and determined, and when you wear clothes that make you appear to be soft and quiet, your true nature is disguised to most people and it will come across as unexpected and can often be judged as aggressive and pushy.”
Will the course be helpful for you?
I think that many women could benefit from the dressing your truth membership and course. I think that membership is a good option for you if:
- You have always been unsure about how you dress
- You like some clear guidelines what suits you and what doesn’t
- If the Beauty Profiling course ‘spoke’ to you and you want to know how to dress according to your personality
- You like to have some clear guidelines of what clothes, fabrics and colours to buy
- You are willing to stick to (rather strict) guidelines on which colours, lines, patterns and fabrics to wear
The membership will give you a further set of videos which outlines exactly how you should dress and groom for your type. You will get your colour cards mailed to you and a downloadable copy of the book Discover your personal profile. In addition there will be a lot of videos from previous club nights given by Carol and her team on how to apply all the rules that you have learned. You will also have access to the forum and will be able to get support from Carol and her team.
Have you entered the contest yet for a free course and $100 voucher?
As you may know I’m giving away a free full membership to the Dressing your Truth program. It’s easy to enter and all you need to do is answer 1 simple question: Why do you need a Dressing Your Truth course. Head on over to Discover your type – Win a Dressing your truth course and shopping spree and enter!
From the book: “When you don’t dress your truth, you send a message that conflicts with who you truly are…. What you are wearing sends a message to other people which influences their first impression of you. If you don’t dress your truth, you may be judged in a negative light because your true nature is not being honoured by your appearance.“.
I think the Dressing your truth course can help you get confidence in yourself and help you to dress to your true nature. I would recommend that everyone takes the free assessment to discover your beauty profile, which will serve you in many parts of your life. Not just your dressing. If the material speaks to you, I think it may be a good investment in yourself to check out the whole programme and get life-long membership. It may give you a renewed confidence in yourself and may potentially save you a lot of money from buying the wrong clothes! If you haven’t already done so you can enter my competition to win a free membership and a $100 voucher for the shop.
