0.11 My question is about value and color, given that mine seem to change drastically based on lighting. Regardless of lighting, my skin has a lot of color, but my eyes and hair both seem to do a pretty drastic shift in color and value based on lighting when I look at myself in photos ., I’m really not sure how to interpret my value contrast. I would love to hear your advice on the topic!
2.05 I have a more yang physicality (body—larger bones, a relatively straight waist) but am otherwise quite yin (personality/voice/movement/facial features). How does one deal with this contrast to create a harmonious look?
4.32 My biggest style challenge at the moment is how to get the courage to make the drastic changes I know I need to make with my image and style. I’m 35 and I’ve had zero style for so long that I worry that if I suddenly start wearing makeup and flattering clothes and beautiful jewellery, I’ll feel clownish or like I’m playing dress up.
I’d say my ideal style is 70% relaxed, 20% feminine and 10% unique/quirky. But my actual current ‘style’ is whatever is boring, comfortable and cheap

0.08 I’m an INFJ and the idea that I can “let style slip” in favor of comfort and versatility (from 16 style types) really resonated with me. I love clothes, and this still happens! What can I do to combat this tendency and keep committing to outfits that have unique style?
2.23 I think the hardest thing, I am not a morning person, so I don’t do a lot of thinking before my first cup of coffee and my wardrobe is so uninspiring that I often don’t get dressed until I absolutely have to.
Additionally I sew as a hobby and would love to sew things for myself but the last few items looked great on the mannequin but just didn’t suit me. Needless to say, I haven’t made anything for myself in a while.
8.33 I’ve been wondering, can I mix neutrals with different undertones, such as black with warm grey or cool taupe with warm navy? Finding a truly cool navy has been a challenge for me.
