The "Make It Real" Makeover Challenge

There's a new style challenge in town (created & hosted by Valeria & Jenny) and I decided to jump right into it. For me, this will be a great way to put into practice what I have learned and am learning in my Color Alliance image consultant training & my Fashion Feng Shui apprenticeship. Plus, it will be fun. :)

Perhaps you might like to try it, as well?

Here are the details...

"If you join our challenge, you will learn to…
  • create a clear vision of your ideal style
  • translate your vision into realistic, practical, wearable style—Make It Real!
The structure of the challenge is simple: during the month of August, you will create a vision board of your style...every week, I will be posting instructions, guidance, and support to keep you inspired and on track."

At the end of the month, we learn how to move from vision board to actual wardrobe. The challenge started on August 1st and there have been two more posts since the first one...

Week One, Part One
Week One, Part Two

The whole thing starts with taking a quick survey (only four questions). A sort of "before" snapshot of where you are now. And it's not too late to get in on the fun!

You in?

"A unique system of color analysis, firmly grounded in scientific measurements
and circumscribed by the timeless principles of art. It produces a color palette unique to you, specifically designed to complement your own skin, hair and eye color." –Color Alliance

"When we find the set that enhances you above all the others, what we have really uncovered are the exact pigments already in your skin, in your body. When you then wear the colors you already are, you look like magic because your person and your attire is sending the same wavelength of energy to the viewer." ~~Christine Scaman, 12 Blueprints
