A Real Momma, Real Style Confession!


I found out at the conference that I am a dressing your truth type 3, not a dressing your truth type 2, as I had thought. For almost a year, I had been living and dressing as a type 2, but I was mistaken.

"How Did You Get It Wrong for Almost a Year?"...

People have been asking me, now that I know I am a type 3, why I ever thought I was a type 2. 

I completely understand that because with all the information that now is flooding into my head about why I really am a type 3, I have been wondering myself how I could have missed it. 

What I have come up with so far is that my features are softened because of my secondary type 2, I was living in my secondary (type 2) and thus, more aware of those traits than the type 3 ones, and I had a judgment about type 3s and so avoided even considering it. Didn’t even bother to read the material about it.

My Instincts Were Talking to Me, Though...

From the very beginning, I wore most of my type 2 colors with brown and even posted about how I was trying to warm them up a little. And over time, I began to notice that I wasn’t like the other type 2s. 

Eventually, I decided that I must be a secondary type 3, but still didn’t consider that I might not be a type 2 until someone else suggested it. A few times. Insistently. And set up an appt. for me to be draped while at the conference.

And thank goodness she did because that’s how I came to know that I am actually a dressing your truth type 3. Which means I get to wear all those wonderful warm, rich colors I was already beginning to wear because I had been color analyzed as a soft autumn.
