So what is an Image Archetype?

Essentially, it’s a combination of shape, line, scale, and proportion that creates a conceptual style in reference to your body. 

The quickest, easiest, most effective way to dress a person is to dress them to look like themselves. So just as we have styles such as Mid-Century Modern or Colonial in architecture (click light bulb for more on this), in fashion we have Image Archetypes.

Having my personal image archetype determined by Rachel was so helpful in developing my wardrobe with smart purchases that really work well for my body without wasting time and money.I have continued to value the guidance Rachel gave me and use the resources to guide my new purchases or for restyling my... hair. It has been such a great investment working with Rachel xread more

I got my personal color analysis done by Rachel and loved it! Before my appointment, I was very confused about my undertones and what colors looked good on me. Rachel was very informative throughout the process and validated my previous feelings about certain colors. I never thought I'd be a soft summer, but it's so amazing to not only see the... difference the drapes make, but also how Rachel explains why the color is affecting you in a certain way. I feel a lot more confident now building my wardrobe and choosing makeup/hair colors that are the best for me. It's 100% worth the investment - I'd recommend booking a PCA with Rachel to anyone!read more

Rachel is the real deal. I got my personal color analysis (PCA) and the session was 4 hours and she taught me so much about color and what to pick out to make me feel the most beautiful. She explains her entire thought process and why she chooses what she does, and now I know how to style color to bring out my natural skin color the best. Very... worth the investment.read more

I had a Personal Color Analysis (PCA) with Rachel. As I continue to grow, age, establish myself, attend events, etc., the investment into clothing has become more of a focus and I want to ensure that the clothing I invest in not only makes me happy but also complements my features. Rachel's expertise put all my worries at ease! One of the greatest... parts of the appointment is that she guides you through the process of color analysis, asking questions and pointing out features that you would not ordinarily notice. I learned so much and the appointment was fantastic from start to finish. After the analysis, Rachel also provides resources for your season and for your future analysis on your own. Highly recommend Rachel and her services!!!read more

Rachel was extremely personable and professional. I was able to make an appointment the same week that I reached out to her. I had the Personal Color Analysis appointment and was able to learn about the best colors and makeups that would go with my complexion. At the end of the session, she gave me a color wheel that I can use while shopping and... sent me links with recommended make up to purchase which makes my life much easier and simplified for shopping. I highly recommend her! It’s such a great treat to learn about styling and boost your confidence 😊read more

Rachel was beyond professional and we had so much fun together. She took the time to explain the science and artistry behind color matching. I came in with no knowledge just wanting to learn my colors, and midway through the session she helped me cultivate my own artistic eye!! Shocked and excited to learn I’m a bright winter!!!Such a fun treat... for myself. Highly recommend.read more

I am so glad I found Rachel. She definitely opened my eyes on what looks best on me. I've struggled shopping for clothing that I can love and not be just a typical black top/dress. I truly feel I can go forward with a better grasp on how to dress so that I can feel confident and beautiful. And I finally figured out what lipstick color to buy!!!
Rachel is am amazing stylist. I have used her to help me create my signature style and build my wardrobe that emulates me! I feel more confident and stand out from the crowd. I get so many compliments on my clothes, how I look in them, and my unique style. Highly recommend Rachel… she is the best investment I made in myself.

Far and away the most helpful and productive style consultation(s) ever! The process is straightforward and clear, the advice is actionable and realistic, and the improvements are immediate. I am thrilled with the results-worth every penny!
I had a PCA and a PIA done with Rachel and it literally transformed my life. I stopped wasting money on clothing & makeup that don’t work, confidently redirected that effort into what *does* work, and have never looked back. I can shop so much more quickly now because knowing exactly what I’m looking for immediately rules out so much of what’s... there. I’ve surely saved thousands in the years since I had these analyses done. I’m frequently complimented on my style and makeup because now I know how to choose what suits me best! It truly is an energy shift and one of the best gifts I’ve ever given myself.read more

Rachel is AMAZING! I have seen experts including Zyla, but still felt a gap in how to style myself and where I fit in seasonally. I joined Rachel's fabulous classes where she gave her honest informative views on outfits I questioned, including lengths, and lines. I gained such clarity after she draped me Dark Autumn and typed me as a Muse. Her... candor and expertise gave me real- life lessons, and I am grateful.read more

Imagine that you are tasked with decorating a log cabin. What kinds of furnishings would you look for? 🤔 

I’m guessing that you would probably choose something rustic and organic looking with a casual and cozy vibe, regardless of your preferences in interior décor. 🏠 🌲 

On the other hand, I doubt you will have chosen hyper-modern furnishings made of metal and molded plastic fit for a black tie affair. Possibly there’s an interior decorator somewhere who could make that look fabulous, but the easiest and most logical choice would be to furnish a log cabin like…a log cabin. 👍 

Not only does this create an incredibly harmonious and attractive end result with
minimal training and effort required, it also allows us to capitalize off of the best elements of the log cabin that are already there without having to create some new appeal from scratch.

If you haven’t guessed, the log cabin in need of the right decor is a metaphor for a person
in need of the right clothing. 👗 👠 👜 

Want to know what kind of “decor” is perfect for you? Watch this space… 👀

What if, humor me here, that thing about your body- you know the thing. The thing you're up googling how to get rid of at 3 AM. 
___
The double dip hip or the cellulite on your butt or your limp hair or your left eyelid that's slightly lower than the right... ___
What if instead of being a curse uniquely visited upon you by the gods, what if it was just totally ordinary? Just an absolutely regular feature of human beings that doesn't mean anything at all. Nothing to write home about, no action required.

I'm probably wrong but... what if I'm not?
