I have always been fascinated with the fluidity of Fashion Feng Shui, especially due to the concept of the Transformational Triad. It seems that this dynamic combination of our essence and intention and body can be applied to our wardrobe planning with other systems as well.
Through Fashion Feng Shui, you find your dominant feng shui element to determine your style of dress. You also can modify this by your intention or purpose for the day.
The Transformational Triad concept leads us to balance our essence with our intention that changes over time to create a harmonious appearance.
Essential Energy (ESSENCE) is unconsciously expressed. It is the energetic lens through which you see the world, the assimilation of your core (driving force), character (emotional nature), and conduct (way of being) – the unique "essence"... that is you.
Intentional Energy (INTENTION) is consciously created. It is the energy attached to what you have "in mind" to be, do and have.
Visual Energy (APPEARANCE) is physically transmitted. It is the vibrational pattern created by "how you look," influenced by the energies inherent in your physical coloring and body shape, and the colors, patterns, textures, fabrics and silhouettes of the clothes you wear.
Contemplation: this process begins with some thinking about your goals, your lifestyle, your current closet needs and limitations, etc. This will also possibly involve coordination with the Color and Style system(s) you prefer. They may provide some guidance in how to conceptualize your closet.
Capsule Wardrobe Planning: it can be a good idea to envision several capsule wardrobes that coordinate with your lifestyle and needs. You may do this on polyvore or pinterest, or request makeover assistance.
Culling Closet: the next step is usually to take everything out of your closet and dresser drawers, or storage areas. This will also give you a chance to evaluate whether you need to improve the structure of your closet, such as buying new bins or hangers, etc.
Categorize: sort through all your items to determine it's destiny:
Keep * Store * Toss * Donate
Evaluate what you use, what is in good repair, what fits, what actually fits your coloring and style.
Keep: what you know is perfect. Store: what fits and is good quality but not your color or style (or this season). Toss: items in disrepair. Donate: the rest gets donated, sold on consignment or traded!
