Jewely

Hello Fellow Bloggers- This is Denae Doyle of FemImage. I do welcome great questions, that help the new, serious girl. I would like to discuss jewelry today, Yes it is an individual choice, but with fashion….there are two basic groups of jewelry to wear with your clothing–unless you’re just totally casual and having fun!
(1)Gold/Plated goes great with yellow tone clothing while(2) silver goes with the basic black, white, grey, navy blue. For some, anything goes, but as one client put it to me recently in a consult “I just want to get it right”. Yes, I always felt that way, as I had NO CLUE what I was doing when I was out of school.

Consider this….we have yellow in our skin which gives us a darker tan, and it is called “winter”… or we are very pale which creates light skin, hair, freckles, on and o which gives us a very fair glow>>>and dpon”t even try to tan,, I tried it out in college and only got “baked” burned, and very white skin which only peeled. This is how Color gives us tan of Cher or the pale color of Madonna. Most over 30, don’t go into the sun and no sun booth’s .Ask your doctor, but most will say it does cause skin cancer. They stay away from tan, winter,colors (red lipstick or dark brown lips and even look “over tanned” as it can age a woman. Analysis came along.
For the longest, (I have pink skin) and I would wear yellow colors to try and look tan. Once I learned the difference–the color of my face/makeup/eyes changed. Of course I get emails saying I want to do my thing and not follow rules, and again…that is okay. However there are a group of women who want to perhaps wear a business suit, dresses for business interviews, color of hosiery for skirts and brillant, blouses and sweaters, into matching that undertone of pink or yellow into what color foundation to wear (tan yellow, or light, pale very light foundation color, each yellow foundation or pink foundation. It does take some study, but if you enjoy the feminine life, this is a fun place to start. Many students hated it, said it is too difficult. I suggest you purchase on Amazon for $1.00 (one dollars) Color Me Beautiful by Carole Jackson. This is a very simple book which is why I used it to teach, it is actually the first book I taught Fashion Design from, as it makes it simple. Pink or Gold. You can blend this with jewelry, eye makeup, blush, lips and nail polish colors….it goes on and on. If you are a girl who is going to transition, you can establish your ” signature color” and try painingt a few beautiful walls the colors that go with you. I use the scarfs I wear and to wrap around furniture for feminine decoration.I recently tossed the Super King bed and purchased a white antique bed from 1985. I even put jewelry on the scarfs on the bed.

I love white tip nails, or clear nails polished clear. Soon winter will come in, so boots, jackets, leather gloves. In Jan, all winter items are on sale, so with leather coats, boots you can save so much.

Back to jewelry, establish what your season or colors are. For this winter you will want to get brown or black boots and leather purses. If you have a leather store, they will be getting the old merchandise out, with the new Spring/Summer coming in. When shopping, put together a “capsule” and when one capsule is finished, start with another. This will make your so much more simple, instead of saying…..”I have nothing to wear”. I have decided to work with a brown capsule for this winter, as I have plenty of black accessories. And, you can select blouses, and sweaters, colored jeans and jeggings and long tight boots…. to match. Even your fabric is a capsule. For cold weather the thicker fabrics which are lined, will keep you warm, just be sure your colors all bend with the basics and then bring out the bright colors for summer, and this is the year for color. I love color, but it is so much way to much to handle in this short blog. Instead, find a book on color and style, and for fun, relaxing time, begin reading up on colors, and fabrics. For example, I saw a lady today (here in CA where it is beautiful and perfect temp I saw a girl with black shoes, opague black hose, long black sweater, and dark makeup which did not say Spring. The jeggings are great, they are tight around the legs, and wear a blouse, longer in the back to cover your tush.I recently located a pair of genetic womens’ hip pads…..which takes away the hip pad look, and gives a fuller hip.Keep everything clean and crisp, and I LOVE IRONED jeans and a white shirt with a tie. yOU CAN PUT YOU TOGETHER, JUST START WITH WHAT REPRESENTS YOU, START SMALL, DON’T BUY A LOT OR AN EXPENSIVE ANYTHING. i HAVE DISCOVERED kOHLS AND MARSHALLS. nOW THAT I AM TEACHING OUT OF MY HOME SALON/CONSULTS, I CAN CHANGE AND DO MORE SIMPLE FABRICS.mORE DOWD AND LIGHT FABRICS, AND NOT SPEND 2 HOURS. THAT IS ANOTHER ISSUE I WANT TO BLOG ABOUT, WHICH IS WEARING AND TAKING BETTER CARE OF YOUR CLOTHING. HANG JUST OUT OF THE FUN.
Okay, it is almost 2 pm and I have worked on a new DVD, so without much proofing, I am simply going to “Post this blog information. More later, if you have questions, or if you’re to share your thoughts, simply put Share.
More later, my dear Ladies.

TG Conference

Vickie,I agree with you–when I work with the serious TG woman–voice is the most difficult. And, combining your voice and your movement (together) will give you the most authentic look and feel possible. Vickie, it is possible. I have clients who can attain and retain both. First, practice my DVD’s on movement…until they become second nature. Next, try downloading a free 10 day trial software program from the net. I like Spectrogram by Richard Horne. IF you like it…he sells it for $50.00 I use this when working with my clients, and voice pathlogist also use this type of program….if you were to go in and work with one (for hundreds of dollars). You will need a mic ($10.00 from Radio Shack). They have great tech support to help you set it up.

Now, once you download the software..find the 185 to 300 Pitch range on the Spectogram. Next, find the BACK spot of the bottom, back of your thorat. As I showed you at SCC…put your index finger on your Adams Apple. Swallow. You will feel a V go down and BACK.

This is the cord stretching out, as you swallow. You want to speak from that spot. Also, remember when I showed you ladies how to practice saying: HA HA HA This leaves your mouth open. Feel your mouth drop open with a HA?

Now try HE HE HE. This PULLS your lips in and pulls your throat muscles UP…and this HE HE HE is the upward pull you want in your throat. Have each word go UP not DOWN.
