CMAS & Color Profiles Testimonial

 

I’ve always loved color systems and I was so happy to finally get my palette done! Jane was super professional, and the fan I received is simply breathtaking! The next time I go clothes shopping, I am totally prepared!” Heather G., Honey Spring Daylilly

 

Color Me A Season Analysis Testimonial

 

 leaf1“Jane helped me see things from a new vantage point.  I thought I was a deep autumn, but something didn’t sit right.  I could only wear the dark colors of that palette.  And then I came across Expressing Your Truth and found a world of resources!  I took the plunge and had my color analysis done.  Jane saw that I was a deep winter.  She didn’t just tell me this, she showed me by draping me in other seasons that are similar.  The right season unfolded right before our eyes.  Of course, I’m a deep winter!  Now, I can explore the colors of a full palette instead of limiting myself to part of one.  My report covers more than color.  It covers line, fabrication, personal style, hair and makeup.  I thought I would get my colors done, but I got so much more!”  Valerie (Sunset Winter)

Color Me A Season Testimonial: Firelight Winter

 

“My experience with Jane was very nice, I felt like I was finding my answers in collaboration and not imposed an opinion I wouldn’t necessarily agree with. She’s fantastic, fun and friendly. I know now what colours are best on me, after a year of searching and trying other systems that didn’t necessarily work.” Sandra G., (We thought she was a Moonlight Summer “Jeweltone” but revised to Firelight Winter)

leaf1“I wasn’t sure how a virtual draping would go, since the skin is a captured image a nd can’t really react to the colors.  But, I could definitely see differences between colors.  Some colors made certain things stand out, while other colors harmonized much better.  I realized that its similar to the concept of holding a color card or swatch up to a garment and seeing if they harmonize.  Being able to see my face with all those different colors to compare was very helpful and eye-opening.  ”  K.G. (Moonlight Summer)

Color Profiles Testimonial

 

leaf2“I found Jane’s blog quite by accident as I was exploring different consultants for color analysis. I had color analysis in the past and was still exploring possibilities. I signed up for her to do “paper dolls” first and she offered so much information that I ended up having her do my virtual analysis. The amount of detail and information that she provides is amazing! The whole experience has been phenomenal! Plus you get into a whole community of women that are interested in this work. Highly recommend her work! ” Susan T. , Charlotte, NC (Indian Summer)”  I later did her Color Profiles fan as well:

Color Me A Season analysis Testimonial

 

leaf1“I want to first begin by saying the my journey began with another company that left me with no answers and no help. I felt frustrated, confused, and betrayed. My search led me to Jane and what a blessing! Even before I paid for her services, she was warm, welcoming, and willing to help. She truly cares. My CMAS journey was fun and I learned a lot…and still am. The report looked at all aspects of me and did not limit me to one area which I believe is so important as a person has so many facets. Most importantly, Jane was with me every step of the way… even in the late night hours. Though we have come to a conclusion, I still need reassurance and Jane is still there to guide and support me. Jane has been a blessing to my journey of self discovery!” L.S. (Pastel Spring)

Color Me A Season Testimonial

 

leaf2“When you start trying to define your personal style, the web is a bit of a double edged sword. With so much information out there, it’s easy to find quizzes, ideas and suggestions – but it’s also just as easy to get overwhelmed and not be able to sort out what is really right for you. Jane provides clarity, inspiration and tons of ideas. With her profile typing service, I was able to clearly see that I was a Clear Spring (pun intended). It’s helped me shop smarter, explore different styles that I thought would never look good but do, and refine my color choices so I always look my best. Thanks for all that you do Jane!!”  C.J. (Striking Spring)

 

Color Me A Season Testimonial

 

leaf1“I was very impressed with the whole experience. The report shows how you arrived at your conclusion and gives clear visual examples that helped me to relate to what you were saying. You seem to have an intuitive knack for this, which I am sure stems from your previous experience of helping others. Overall it was a very enjoyable and easy to follow experience.” Samantha

“I highly recommend Jane and her profiling services. She was great to work with and really went out of her way to help leaf1me out even though I had the most awful photos to work with. Thank you so much, Jane.”

 

"Light on Water" Testimonial

 

“I just love the report. I can’t tell you how much it has changed the way I perceive shopping. Although I’ve been into color leaf2analysis for 3 years, and have done a million self photo drapes, nothing compares to seeing it in your report. I get to see it objectively and the proof is in the pudding lol. I have seen you blossom into an expert in your field, and your balance of intuition and logic is remarkable. You are so talented. As I mentioned to you, I cried when I saw the report for I finally saw the beauty of ME!  And the links for shopping are amazing, all right there! Just gifts upon gifts.” S.A. (Pastel Spring)

leaf1“Jane Rekas redraped me virtually as per my request because I felt as though my initial assessment of Soft Autumn was too muted and I felt as though I looked better in lighter brighter colors. I think that the initial photos I submitted made me appear too warm. I sent some new photos and am so happy with my new assessment of a Light spring. I am so pleased with my new palette and know that I will incorporate these lovely colors into my wardrobe. The detailed report that Jane created for me was informative and lovely. She is talented and creative. Thank you.” Laurel

How to use your fan

Subtitle: What fan should I get?

I’ve been asked by CMAS clients what fan they should get.  Of course, I’m going to say get the CMAS fan, which you can order from me $26 & postage, in which case here is some information on how to use it: How to use your fan download

When you get your CMAS season, it will be your dominant season and a blend or secondary season.  There are four fans for the dominant seasons and then your best colors within that fan will be marked on the fan, or you can refer to the document or the link marked “Your Season” above. Both list the numbered fan strips for your subseason.

Also, here are the two methods of using the fan in brief:

 

how1

Method 1: hold up one strip to match a color

how2

Method 2: take the whole fan, or a section, to match harmony

So, what if you want another fan?

 Look at this link for Other Fans download  for pictures (or the last page of the how to use your fan download above).

My Caygill Analysis

My Caygill Analysis by Anne Sagendorph-Moon
Today I received the best color analysis I have ever received.  The reason it is the best is that it was personalized and very systematic.  Anne Sagendorph-Moon of Oakland, CA, is trained in the Caygill method.  As you know, Suzanne Caygill really started seasonal color analysis, interpreting the influence of Johannes Itten.  Based on values, skintone and other body colors, the determination of season is made, and then the palette is absolutely customized for each body color and palette stick.  These are fabric palettes made of several values of each color on what is called a stick and held together with a ring, so all your options are combined.

I am Patrician Winter by skintone. Patrician means “proud, regal, nobleman, aristocrat.”  Patrician Winter is the first of the Winters.  It is the least bold.  They are usually gray haired but can also have dark hair and thus gray very well.  I also have some deep qualities and some of my colors are deep.  I am more deep than bright, though I have a few brighter colors.  I also have some Classic Winter sticks.  My eyes are a Summer green though!  Just as I thought.  No wonder I’ve had the confusing journey I’ve had.

Greg turned out to be a Rose Tone Summer.  And his hair actually is the gray from Patrician Winter! so that was a bit funny.  It turns out that though we are both cool and neutral, he is even more cool than I am, but what makes me the Winter is my contrast level.

Please don’t spend the number of years that I did trying to guess your season.  Getting your colors professionally done is truly life changing.  Thank you so much Anne!
