Personal Color Analysis

Does the simple act of getting dressed seem daunting?
It doesn’t have to.

So many clients come to me feeling like they’re in a rut because their wardrobe is full of almost exclusively black and grey, leaving them feeling drab, dull, and boring. They WANT to branch out, but when they try out other colors, everything looks wrong and they end up not wearing what they bought. Nailing down the right lipstick and hair color feels like a never-ending battle.

I actually went into my color combination having a guess as to what my season was but no idea "why". And ultimately that "why" was the biggest value I got out of the color consultation.The session actually starts with Rachel walking through the process of figuring out the season, and then you collaboratively do it together, which gives you a... great first-hand look and practice at how colors change how you look. You then get additional practice afterwards with makeup / color swatches that reinforces what you've just learned.My original guess as to my own season was right, but even if I had been SURE what my season was beforehand I would do it anyways just for the skill building and the "why" behind it. I've used these skills every time I go shopping afterwards and it's made a huge difference. It's exciting to find colors that I never thought I could wear!read more

Had such a great experience with Rachel getting my personal color analysis done! I wanted to get an understanding of what colors work best for me and she absolutely delivered. Rachel walked me through every step of the process and shared her thoughts out loud with every color swatch that went on me, sharing specifics on why or why not each color... worked. We also went through things like makeup, metals (down to the specific golds that are better for me than others), and even nails! I left my appointment feeling excited about revamping my wardrobe, accessories, and overall style.read more

Although the weather was not on our side the day of my appointment Rachel was still able to see me. First off Rachel is amazing she's very knowledgable, friendly and easy to talk to. She answered all my questions and helped me understand the entire personal color analysis concept and how to apply it in everyday life. This appointment was... everything I hoped for and more. It gave me the clarity I wanted/needed when it comes to my wardrobe, hair color, jewelry and makeup especially since I am someone who loves to express myself through those things. After you you are finished with the appointment Rachel provides plenty of resources so you don't have to worry about memorizing everything and gives you a cute travel size palette so you can take it on the go when shopping. I would 100% recommend this especially as a gift to someone and even for anyone getting married since you would be surprised how many shades of white there are. It was worth the money and its information that I will be able to use for the rest of my life.read more
Rachel spent SIX hours analyzing my colors and style archetype. She was the expert I needed at this point of my color journey - someone who would take the time to explain each step in detail and be willing to go through yet one more comparison to help me feel confident as a Dark Autumn Sophisticate. I did end up joining her Online Style Club,... which is a very good thing as I already have a ton of (new) questions as I attempt to put my learnings into practice. I feel confident that Rachel will have the expertise to answer these questions and help me continue on my way to a better curated wardrobe and more striking personal style. I would recommend Rachel's services to anyone who is on a quest for not only answers but an understanding of how and why the answer is the answer.read more

Rachel is knowledgeable and charming. She is super supportive in the process of finding your color season and body line analysis, which I have done both. I definitely agree with her results. I also greatly appreciated her help with walking me through what my season and body like analysis mean for me and my style. Highly recommend!
I worked with Rachel about 6 years ago. 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 the Personal Color Analysis & Body Line Analysis appointment with Rachel and it was an amazing experience. Rachel was engaging and so knowledgeable. She took her time explaining all the nuances and made sure I understand each step of the way. The whole experience was so much fun and definitely worth the investment.

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

The Color Seasons Explained

A color season is simply a group of colors that all fall within a range of hue, value, and chroma parameters, so named for the poetic relationship between nature at that time of the year and the colors in each group.

A Twelve season system is the most commonly used in modern color analysis, as it seems to produce the best balance of specificity to allow clients to wear all the colors of their palette well and to easily find complimentary makeup and hair colors, while being broad enough to make wardrobe building practical and the analysis process definitive.

This Season system is divided into four primary seasonal color palettes: Winter, Spring, Summer & Autumn

Winter

Winter is one of the four primary seasonal color palettes in personal color analysis. The Winter palettes are characterized by their cool hue, dark value, and bright chroma. Within the Winter season, the three sub-season groups used in the 12-tone system are Dark Winter, True Winter, and Bright Winter.

The colors in these palettes include striking jewel tones such as sapphire blue, emerald green, ruby red, and violet, as well as icy pastels and cool neutrals, such as black, white, navy, and grey.

The colors in these palettes include warm, fresh colors such as sunny yellows, coral pinks, warm greens, and aqua blues, as well as warm neutrals, such as brown, cream, golden sand, and warm grey.

This Year My Style will be (blank) 🤔 

It’s that time of the year, friends! The slate has been swept clean, and endless possibilities lay before us. Whatever happened last year, however our wardrobes served us or didn’t, that’s behind us. We are brimming with hope for who we could be (and what we could wear) this year. 

Every year on the first Thursday of the year, I lead a group call to find our style words of the year. It’s a time set aside to reflect on where you’ve come from and decide where you want your style to go this year. It’s one of my favorite things I do all year, and I would love for you to join us.

So as a special gift, you can join my members in The Society of Extraordinary Style for the entire month for just $5.

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… 👀

So what is an Image Archetype? 🤔

A lot of people have heard of Image Archetypes or Kibbe body types, but don’t really understand what they are. 🤷🏻‍♀️

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, in fashion we have Image Archetypes.💃🏻

There are 10 Image Archetypes divided into 5 categories: Dramatics, Naturals, Classics, Gamines, Romantics. 

Want to know more? Stay tuned…📻

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.
