Personality Plus: Vivacious

This page uses affiliate links.

VIVACIOUS
gay, sparkling, lively, flighty, impulsive

FABRIC AND TEXTURE
-You’re not a tomboy, but you do like woolens that take a certain amount of knockabout wear.

-You look for materials that make up into perky, crisp outfits.

-Slinky, soft materials to some extent bother you. They aren’t in step with your pep!
-You love faille, taffeta, pique, and organdy for evening.

COLOR AND PATTERN
Note: the book does not give many specifics on color and pattern for Vivacious.
-You like plaid skirts that don’t show spots.

-There will be nothing ultraconservative about your clothes.

DETAIL
-You like styles that have a direct quality–a ready-for-anything look. You don’t like the type of dress that has to sit quietly in the corner so it won’t get messed up.
-You love tricky costume jewelry and fad accessories. You’re happy when you have a drawerful of belts, collars, kerchiefs, clips, and bracelets to choose from because you crave frequent changes.

-You really prefer to wear headgear of the moment, whether it is a hood or a headband arrangement. Of course, they can’t “go” everywhere. When you must wear a hat, you feel best in ones that aren’t too cluttered with “stuff.”

-Your shoes and bags tend toward casual styles, but you enjoy novelty shoes and tricky bags too.

    I’ve been following along casually, occasionally thinking that my style takes a few elements from “delicate” or “sturdy” or what-have-you…until today. If we were playing darts with my sense of style, you just hit a bullseye dead on!

    It’s crazy, I feel so pulled between Vivacious and Demure! On one hand I can’t stand the idea of crisp fabrics. MAYBE in a midi circle skirt. On the other hand I don’t look or feel right in ultra-muted colors (I’m a Spring/Light Spring). But the rest of the descriptions, at any given time could fit me … which makes me feel like I have a split personality, lol. It makes sense though, as with DYT I’m a 1/2 … which I’m still trying to reconcile (hoping Fantastical Beauty does the trick). This is a super cool supplementary system, thanks for posting up the descriptions!

      My next post will be about how to apply it, so I think that may help you resolve some of these issues :)
