Frequently Asked Questions about the Society of Extraordinary Style
Do I have to have had an Image and/or Color Analysis first?
Nope. There is a program included in the course specifically to help you figure out your own Image Archetype. As for Color Analysis, you will have the option of seeking one out with me or one of my colleagues that is located closer to you (a list will be provided of who to contact), or if you know what colors you’d like to wear, you can move forward with those. You don’t have to purchase anything before you join the club.
Are you going to tell me my Color Season and/or Image Archetype?
When it comes to season, I would love to, but I literally can’t. Color just doesn’t work through a screen with enough accuracy for me to say for sure which season you are. I wish it weren’t so, but it HAS to be done in person. I’d be happy to offer my best guess, and give you feedback on how well certain colors you’re trying are working for you. You can also choose to see me privately in my studio for a full Color Analysis (at a discounted rate with your membership), or refer to a list of my colleagues located all over the world.
As far as your Image Archetype goes, there is a program included within the society to help you self-identify your Image Archetype, even if you’ve tried before and got stuck. I don’t want to brag but it’s really, really good - most people can get down to the right choice themselves. Additionally, if you sign up for a year in advance, I will confirm your archetype for you on a private 30 minute call. You can also choose to purchase that separately as an additional service (at a discounted rate) at any time during your membership.
What if I can’t make it to the live chats?
Don’t worry! I’ll record them and send you the replay.
Will there be men there?
Nope, no men allowed.
Will the Society be a fit for me if I’m plus sized?
Of course. The methods I use involve using the principles of art and design to determine what’s in harmony with your natural self. No matter what you look like, this methodology will help you find what works effortlessly on you.
I’ve already had a Personal Color Analysis & Personal Image Analysis and read all of your books. Do I really need this?
Well, That depends. Are you using it? Do you need help and support figuring out how to actually apply what you’ve learned to your wardrobe? Are you finding it hard to find things that work with your season and archetype that also feel like you, or that work with your lifestyle?
Are you ready to stop second guessing and have a place to ask your questions, get feedback and develop the confidence to just know what works for you?
Then, yes. I think you do need this. I’m confident it will help you.
Can I leave whenever I want?
Yep, the Society of Extraordinary Style is offered month-to-month. So whether you decide it’s not for you or just want to take the summer off, you can leave when you like, with the freedom to come back later. The only exception is for those that choose to sign up for the full year, in which case you’re under no obligation for the following year.
Can I pay with Paypal?
I can only accept non-recurring payments via Paypal. For those who choose to buy an annual membership, Paypal is an option.
Will new things be added?
I am dedicated to making The Society of Extraordinary Style the resource you need to finally be able to create a wardrobe that works for you and reflects who you truly are. That means I’m constantly coming up with new ideas to help you create your ideal wardrobe and learn how to be your own master stylist for the rest of your life.
The most exciting thing to me is that the society gives me a baseline of students. Society members are the front line. They get to try out new things and they are my priority when I offer those new things. Not only will new things be added, you’ll help me figure out what new things we need.
Should I spend money if I’m on a limited clothing budget?
I can only answer this from my perspective, but after many years and hundreds of clients, I find that a lot of my clients are wasting as much money as this program costs every year on clothing, accessories, makeup, hair color, etc that doesn’t work for them. Sometimes a lot more.
Even if you don’t have a ton to spend, if being a part of this program allows you to spend it more wisely, it will likely be a net gain. And learning to choose, and therefore spend money on, only what truly works for you is an investment that will pay dividends for the rest of your life, or as long as you keep wearing clothes. ;)
How long will it take me to fix my wardrobe?
For most women, a year is a good benchmark.
This allows you to take the time to purchase only the right things if and when you find them, and to test out wearing what you have through all the seasons of the year and see how it’s working and troubleshoot (with my help) if needed.
But there’s more to it than that. Learning the skill of building a wardrobe takes time, but if you do it now, you will always know how to do it. So when you get older, move to another state, change jobs, have changes to your body, etc. you will know how to curate a wardrobe that works for you not just now, but when things inevitably change.
