Dressing Your Truth


Robyn Openshaw - Sep 20, 2010 - This Post May Contain Affiliate Links


Local author Carol Tuttle contacted me several months ago. She's author of four books, including "Discover Your Personal Beauty Profile" and "Remembering Wholeness."

She asked me to meet her for lunch. She said she knew exactly what I am in her typing system to help you choose clothes, hair, and makeup to "dress your truth."

I direct you to this because I believe this program allows you to live more truthfully, more grounded in your energy, personality, and unique way of operating in the world. It's about far more than shopping-and-makeup (which are NOT generally interests of mine, and I explain why in my interview).

I let Carol's team do a makeover on me! Check my interview out where I don't quite seem myself:

Check out Carol's program and sign up HERE

Not only did I arrive dressed completely as a Type 2 (I'm Type 3), but you won't know me, I was so nervous! (Losing all control and letting a team of people cut and color my hair, put makeup on me, and dress me–in a word, SCARY!) In the initial interview–not only am I jittery, but I didn't sleep well in anticipation, so I have bags under my eyes!

And here's my makeover:

Check out Carol's program and sign up HERE–I think you'll enjoy it! In fact, you might get LOST in the web site, watching the transformation of many women "discovering their truth."

Also, I'll be on her radio show tonight, Sept. 20, at 7 p.m., talking about wholeness in nutrition and health–and wholeness in Carol's world of truth, beauty, and fashion!

    I have to say that your picture is beautiful on this website. I don’t think you were doing it totally wrong after all. Your hair looks pretty straight and curly! Thanks for living your truth and sharing the green smoothie girl!

    Hi Robyn.
    Just like a previous comment, I am a long time smoothie lover and a first time commenter.
    Lets get back to basics here… attraction is for some one else, and or self esteem. Basic hygiene, and dressing smartly are synonymous with ones true inner happiness.
    First thing in the morning, just out of bed, P J`s, messed hair, but a smile on your face and humming a favorite tune, is truly beauty!
    Poor diet and stress are the only factors that wear us out… so eating well, helps us to get a good nights sleep, and a good nights rest helps us to feel great in the morning.
    As far as the new hair dew, you look great either way. Your preference is what is important, but nice to be able to change it up now and then.

    Thought you might like a comment from the other gender… : )

    Ohhh you are brave! I’m kinda embarrassed reading everyone’s critiques. I know you are a tough cookie, though, so you can take it. My opinion: you look SO young and cool both ways! If you learned something that’s new and fun to you–great! Otherwise, the bottom line is you look awesome both ways!

      Stacy, I figure I put this out there–I can take it! (I could always NOT approve comments if I were really thin-skinned.)

    I LOVE the Curls!! I am a hairdresser and it kills me when people straighten out thier amazing curls. You will be amazed at how much healthier your hair will be from wearing it curly. The lowlights are a nice adition too, it makes the blonde pieces look blonder. I hope you are enjoying your new hairstyle!

    Wow! That make-over just makes you glow! Love the low-lights and I like your hair both ways – I wish I had curly hair. Sigh.

    Robyn – you said you wear mascara and lip gloss and thought you should check out this company http://www.100percentpure.com/Default.asp all the makeup is made from organic fruit pigments with no preservatives or chemicals

      Thank you Anonymous, will check that out!

    Sorry, but I was turned off by how the two ladies looked that were going to redo you. They looked dated to me. Before you looked more natural–it seemed your health was dominant. Now your hair and dress are dominant. I prefer the before.

    Robyn,

    You look GREAT, FULL OF LIFE, HEALTHY, YOUTHFUL……I want to look like you! What do your kids have to say about your new look?

    1. Robyn Openshaw says:

      My kids don’t notice! 🙂

    ROBYN,

    YOU ALREADY LOOKED GRRREAT ALLLL THE TIME!

    YOU ALREADY LOOKED YOURSELF, I DONT CARE WHAT SHE SAYS.

    AND YOU WERE ALREADY POWERFUL IN YOU FORMER HAIR, MAKEUP, AND OUTFITS, SINCE TRUE POWER IS WITHIN, AND DOESNT HAVE that MUCH TO DO WITH OUR LOOKS.

    AND, YOU WERE ALREADY A HOTTIE.

    OBVIOUSLY, I DONT BUY INTO THEIR INITIAL CRITIQUE OF YOU.

    FRANKLY, YOU LOOK BETTER (AND MORE POWERFUL AND HOTTER) THAN BOTH OF THEM, BOTH BEFORE AND AFTER YOUR MAKEOVER.

    I ENCOURAGE YOUR SELF ESTEEM AND SAY BRAVO YOU.

    YOU ARE NOTTTTT more POWERFUL IN THIS NEW LOOK. YOURE STILL POWERFUL YOU.

    THE NEW NATURAL CURLS AND WAVES LOOK FABULOUS ON YOU TOO. SO DOES THE NEW ‘NATURAL’ MAKEUP. DITTO THE OUTFIT. DUE TO THE ACCESSORIES, IT ISNT SO ‘NATURAL’, THERE’S MORE BLING, AND WE LADIES SOMETIMES LIKE A BIT MORE.

    SO STAY TRUE TO YOU, DO WHAT YOU LIKE, AND KNOW THAT YOU DO NOT REQUIRE ALL THOSE EXTRAS TO BE THE POWERFUL AND GORGEOUS AND HOT YOU THAT YOU ALREADY ARE.

    Hi Robyn, it seems half the people like the new look & the other half don’t. I’m with the other half. Your original look is that of sophistication, grace & beauty. This “new” look doesn’t do you justice at all. It’s so dated & cumbersome. However, the bottom line is if you’re comfortable with your makeover, that’s the only opinion that counts. I admire your courage.

    1. Robyn Openshaw says:

      Hey Sue, yeah it’s been interesting! I have kept most of my ORIGINAL look (including straight hair–or if I do it curlier, it’s different than the stylist did it in the makeover) but have shopped for clothes in the colors / textures Carol recommends, because I really agree with that part.

    I would have to agree that you look great, Robin, any which way. I do like the more natural coloring, though, and a little layering, I think, can give you a softer, more natural look. That said, maybe a little less product so it doesn’t look so ‘done’. You look great in the chunky jewelry and wide belt! So, now have we all confused you further? No, because you’re going to live your truth, right? : ) Thanks, Robin for all the positive encouragement you give us to change our lives.

    Robyn you are doing a wonderful service promoting a healthy lifestyle and I think you are a lovely person. Your hair is gorgeous curly! The jewelry looks fabulous and accessories are just that….fun sometimes, but I doubt you will be wearing bracelets,necklaces and belts and earrings while tending to your family and home. You deserve to play a little! I encourage you to look any way you want. You are truly gorgeous either way! Two looks, straight hair for everyday and curly for special occasion or other way around. I totally respect you for no foundation! There are a few cosmetics that are eco/animal friendly. Women should always want to look good. Good for you!

    Hi Robyn,

    I was wondering, how did YOU feel after having had the makeover? Did you feel like you were “living your truth” wearing type 3 clothes, etc.?

      Patrizia,

      The colors, angles, “warm” metals–very much so. This made a lot of sense to me. The actual clothes they dressed me in, that shows in the vids/photos? Not really, no. We were in a big hurry and they have a limited amount of clothing etc. to choose from. I like a much more fitted shirt than the raspberry-colored one I am wearing, and I don’t love the jeans. I went with their suggestions about lots MORE jewelry, and it being really big/dynamic/angles. Not sure that’s “me.”

      But conceptually I agree with them very much, even if the details were rushed (or limited in choice).

      One thing I don’t see myself giving up is wearing BLACK and WHITE. Maybe when I’m 55+ I’ll give that up, but I adore those colors.

    What about putting color on the hair? I was told that it was danagerous to my health

    1. Robyn Openshaw says:

      Linda, yes–however I’ve read that dyeing is the culprit behind the studies of cancer rates in women who color their hair–not a “weave” that doesn’t go to the roots.
