Fashion Feng Shui: The Earth Element

 "Using nature’s five elements – Water, Wood, Earth, Fire, and Metal, Fashion Feng Shui® gives you all the tools you need to honor your authentic self through what you wear in your daily life. The first step on your journey of personal style is finding your essence and making fashion choices that help you honor it."~~Eboost

I think the earth element corresponds most closely to autumn and it is one I relate to, myself.

Just thought I'd share a little about it, but more information go to eboost to read more...

"Peacemakers are the nurturers who fill our lives with warmth, chocolate chip cookies, and hugs. They have an old school quality about them that makes everyone around them feel comfortable. Earths tend to be homebodies, and don’t always take well to big changes. They’re happiest when keeping to their own life long traditions."

Mantras: Nurture. Grounded. Comfort. Classic.
Celebrities: Oprah Winfrey, Tom Hanks, Amy Adams.
Fabrics: Cozy and comfy, textured fabrics, tweed, raw silk, piqué.
Colors: Earthy tones like brown, khaki, sage, and warm colors like yellow and orange.
Styles: Boxy shapes, traditional or classic styles, plaid prints, “school girl.”

All of this information comes from the fashion feng shui website, but doesn't it remind you of your understanding of the autumn season in seasonal color analysis? I decided to explore this concept further with Polyvore...

Warm Autumn:“This woman never pretends. She won’t say something just to flatter you unless she believes it to be true. She cries harder than anyone at a funeral. She is fiercely loyal to her family but will not spare them hard work or spoil them with extravagance. She may seem to absorb a lot of demands but when she draws the line at enough, everyone knows it.” ~~Christine Scaman, 12 Blueprints

Deep Autumn:"Sensible and straightforward as all Autumns, but direct in speech, and quick to absorb change with good evidence, they speak honestly and bluntly. What I love most, I believe, is that they are not one bit threatened or defensive about new ideas. The person may demonstrate more of Winter’s reserve, or more of Autumn’s passive and natural way, but there is always an element of fire." ~~Christine Scaman, 12 Blueprints
