Self-Deprecation into Self-Love

As they say... There is only fear or love.  We can fear our own power and dampen our light, or we can love ourselves, and thus have more love to give others.  I am realizing more and more that color and style work is personal development, it is self-actualization, it is finding oneself and learning to embrace our beauty and our power.

I am very familiar with self-deprecation.  It has been a core issue or a character defect or a coping mechanism for most of my life.  Most of us have had times when we did not want to draw attention to ourselves with our clothes or color choices.  I had a client who was very concerned after having her colors done that she would now be "too visible."  I also had an experience in a group makeover where women were actually visible or seen for the first time.  Choose to be seen. Choose to see your authentic self.

Our Greatest Fear —Marianne Williamson

it is our light not our darkness that most frightens us

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous,
talented and fabulous?

Actually, who are you not to be?

You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other
people won't feel insecure around you.

We were born to make manifest the glory of
God that is within us.

It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone.

And as we let our own light shine,
we unconsciously give other people
permission to do the same.

As we are liberated from our own fear,
Our presence automatically liberates others.

—Marianne Williamson
Often said to have been quoted in a speech by Nelson Mandela. The source is Return to Love by Marianne Williamson, Harper Collins, 1992. —Peter McLaughlin

Nature is never wrong.  All of the colors of your body - hair, skin, eyes, etc. - are wonderful and perfect.  Fall in love with your colors and fall in love with yourself!

I have been working with finding complementary colors to body colors, such as hair, eyes, romantic, etc.  What I have been finding is that those complementary colors are often in the person's body already.  How wonderful.

Someone recently made a comment on their facebook wall about how we can spend perhaps too much time in our community comparing our bodies.  I think this happens a lot with the style categories.  It's dangerous or risky to spend too much time obsessing about what category our body fits into, or our colors for that matter.  Rather we should keep refocusing on celebrating not only our colors but our physical form, our shape.  We can promote a body loving community and support each other if we lapse into body criticism.  And this all happens with compassion - for ourselves and each other.

Acceptance and Change (your clothes!)

Misclassification? Mistaken? Misperception?

I want to write a post about some of what is written about some common "mistakes" that are made in viewing one season as another.  I don't really like the word mistake though.  I think it's important to remain fluid and curious.

The first pattern to always keep in mind is you may strongly identify with your secondary temperament.  You may already be living in that energy, design and colors.  You may likely be suppressing your dominant season or temperament and initially be uncomfortable with the idea that you might be that.

So start by looking at the season you think you may be and ruling out it's opposite  - or considering it!

LIGHT spring or summerDARK autumn or winterCLEAR spring or winter ,SOFT summer or autumnCOOL summer or winterWARM spring or autumn

Look at how much disagreement happens with celebrities that are analyzed online:

DISCLAIMER: please remember that draping in person is best.

Warm Springs can be interpreted as Warm Autumns easily, because these two seasons are the closest and can share the most between their palettes.  Especially if the Warm Spring is a Natural (as opposed to Ingenue or Gamine) which we tend to "throw" towards Autumn.  Also if the person is Spring/Autumn/Winter/Summer with high tertiary Winter, they will often get classified as Winter.

Light Springs and Light Summers are very hard to distinguish as well.  In part because the Light Spring will not easily identify with the extroverted aspects of Sanguine more often depicted by the Warm Spring.  The Lights can also have hair that seems like it goes with the other season, Light Spring can run ash and Light Summer can have some golden quality. I have also found some difficult overlap with Light Spring (or Warm Spring) and Soft Autumn.  Read: LIGHT

Clear/Bright/Vital Springs are the most likely to find themselves put into any of the other three seasons. They can easily be interpreted to be Winter like in nature, especially if they are Dramatic or Classic rather than Ingenue or Gamine.  This is especially true if you have dark hair with neutral skin or even leaning warm.  These types can also sometimes be mistaken for Summer as well.  They can even be mistaken for Autumn, especially if they have some Mediterranean heritage. Read: CLEAR

Cool Summer can easily be mistaken for Winter, especially if they have slightly darker hair or are brown eyed (which is rare), which we might call Jeweltone Summer.  There are several sources that say that they can even wear some black.  Some Cool Summers who are blonde, like Grace Kelly, could accidentally be placed in Light Summer due to their hair, but their skin is cooler. Read: COOL

Soft Summer should be carefully distinguished from Soft Autumn, but also can be mistakenly interpreted to be Clear/Bright Spring. Read: SOFT

Of course a Clear/Bright Winter may think they are a Clear/Bright Spring, especially if they have blonde hair (that is usually leaning towards platinum). Read: CLEAR

Cool Winter is the least "bold" of the Winters, due to their secondary Summer, thus could possibly me misconstrued as Cool Summer. Read: COOL

Dark Autumn and Dark Winter have a lot of crossover, especially since both are neutral in some way.  Dark Winter can have warm hair and cool skin, a "fire and ice" look. Read: DARK

I feel like I might have written this before?

Oh yeah, see also: Distinguishing the Seasons 

Also, can you think of any other common "mistakes"?
