Today, I wore a dangerously-close-to-Type-4 peachy-orange v-neck top with some dark navy trouser jeans, and a dangerously-close-to-Type-4 hairdo. And I felt really pretty. I had all subdued gold jewelry on, and my happy green spring jacket, so it was definitely a more Type 1 chroma. And my gold sandals. I think I came off pretty well. I'm thinking my 'look' will always incorporate lots of Type 4 and Type 2 elements. For now, anyway, that feels good. It's kinda sorta like a Type 4 wearing all Type 1 colors and accessories with a bit of Type 2 fabrications and stuff. But always the overall being a Type 1. Me likey.
Anne said in my body profile that Type 1's often have 2 competing secondaries, and mine were 4 and 2. So there ya go. I want to focus a lot on how things 'feel' when I put them on. If it's pulling down my energy too much, then I need to up the Type 1 factor, generally with color or more accessories. (BTW, does anyone recognize my Type 2 analyzing coming out here? And that the first part of the word 'analyzing' can describe my Type 4 slip peeking out???)
Alright, now I'm gonna whine a bit. Feel free to skip to the pictures. I'm really not caring for having so much product in my hair, and I'm really not enjoying styling it. Takes a long time, and my brain is always so focused on getting myself ready FAST so I can get to all the ideas I have for the day :) I did find a great deal on a 1" ceramic flat iron at Marshall's. It's some European brand. I think that will help the hair-fixing go faster. Here's hoping.
Also picked up a few makeup brushes while I was there: a kabuki brush, and angled eye brow brush, and a brush like the one Maddie was telling me about in the video in Sunday's post.
Also found a wristlet purse. Been searching for one. It's actually an alligator print of white, dark brown and light beige with a gold clasp. Random, fun, and with low contrast colors. I like purses that either drape like a small messenger tote, or a wristlet that stays out of my way. I can't seem to keep other purses up on my shoulder, and I hate when their bulk is under my arm. Since I have a small leather drapey purse, I thought I'd try the wristlet for funsies. No, you don't know that it's a Jessica Simpson brand. You absolutely don't know that her signature is gold plated on the back of the clasp.
Here you can kinda see the circle necklace I got on wicked sale Saturday. It's the airiest piece of jewelry I have ever seen. 'Tis lovely. This pic was taken yesterday....click on it to make it bigger so you can see the dainty circles of the chain, it's the longer one.
Been contemplating things on the decorating front as well. I have lots of black accents that are kinda bugging me. Now I know why. On the other hand, I want my house to be peaceful, so the happy medium I'm coming up with is dark brown accents with lots of white and pastel-y type colors. Springtime, beachy colors. Thankfully, most of my rooms are painted like that anyway. (Hear my Type 3 hubby cheering in the background). I'm having my
How have you all incorporated your Type into your homes? How do you plan to allow for the other types living in your home?
Tomorrow or the next day, I'm working on a post exploring some kinda personal stuff that's occurred to me over the last few days. I'd love some feedback from others on how you've processed some of the ickies that surfaced after you began DYT. I love to hear others stories. Helps me feel so un-alone on this journey.....
