– The Way You Walk

– The Way You Speak

Generally speaking, most of us instinctively know a few colors that are flattering on us, but we don’t have a clear idea of ALL the colors that are flattering, or how to mix and match colors attractively. And most of us certainly don’t have a clear idea of the styles that will flatter our body structure. When you know your Personal Blueprint, you will know your COLORS and STYLES.
Read through each of these personal blueprints, and select the blueprint that most closely resembles you – these blueprints won’t fit you perfectly because each of us is uniquely unique, but it will be very close!

The best way to know what colors look best on you is to hold them up to your face. Try draping different colors on your body and see which colors look best on you. It’s best to have a friend do it with you so you can get a second opinion.
Try colors from each of the four blueprints, and if you look radiant in these colors, you’ll look radiant in ALL the colors of that blueprint:
From the Gold Blueprint, try the following colors: periwinkle blue, peach, daffodil yellow
  • From the Platinum Blueprint, try the following colors: dusty rose, raspberry, gray
  • From the Copper Blueprint, try the following colors: mustard yellow, olive green, mahogany brown or bronze
  • From the Silver Blueprint, try the following colors: pure white, black, magenta, royal purple


This is to get you thinking in terms of becoming a better you — it’s about gaining awareness of what works best for you. The more self-knowledge you have about yourself, the easier it will be to shop for clothes and accessories that make you look great. When you gain that awareness it will change your life!
– giving you greater self-confidence- saving you money from buying clothing mistakes
– all the clothes in your closet will coordinate!
You’ll never say “I don’t have a thing to wear tonight!
