See my Dressing Your Truth Type 1 Transformation with Carol Tuttle!
My Dressing Your Truth Type 1 Transformation Reveal!
Two years ago, my mom and I took part in an amazing online course called Dressing Your Truth®. It’s such a powerful and super fun course that helps women of all ages love and live true to themselves and also teaches you how to connect your unique, inner beauty with your total outer look.
After taking the course, my mom and I have been dressing and living our truth ever since. Because of what I learned from it, my inside matches my outside and I LOVE it!!! For the first time in my life, I feel so free to be me! I can’t say enough great things about the program and all the people behind it that help women all over the world love the skin they’re in.
So you can imagine my surprise and delight when last month, the founder of Dressing Your Truth, Carol Tuttle, invited me to her DYT headquarters in beautiful northern Utah to take part in a Dressing Your Truth Type 1℠ “transformation” complete with new hair, a new outfit and new makeup! I was SO excited!!! And today, I get to show you what they did to me. Woohoo! 🙂
If you haven’t watched Part 1 of my transformation, go ahead and watch it first HERE.

What I thought about my Transformation!
I had such a great day with Carol Tuttle and the Dressing Your Truth team and am so grateful for the experience. Wow, what a day! It was so fun getting to see all the behind the scenes work that goes on at Dressing Your Truth. Every single person I met that day was so wonderful, inspiring, and generous and made me feel so good. It was awesome to see everyone doing jobs where their gifts can truly shine. And it probably goes without saying, but they all look SO fabulous, too – even all the camera crew guys dress their truth and are super stylish! It was so cool to see that!
This transformation gave me some wonderful ideas for a business casual, “grown up” look. When I got a chance to process everything after that whirlwind of a day, I had some mixed reactions. You may be surprised to learn what I really thought about my new Dressing Your Truth Type 1 look….
(How fabulous are these colors?!)
There was something about my final look that wasn’t quite me. I’m more of a casual, easy breezy gal and if I’m being honest, the final look was too stiff and conservative for me. I don’t know if I’m just not used to seeing myself in a new way or if it’s truly not quite me. I’m still trying to figure that one out haha! Either way, I’ve taken all the wonderful ideas from everyone at Dressing Your Truth and have put them to good use in a way that I think is truer to my own personal style.
After all, Dressing Your Truth is about dressing YOUR truth and no one knows you better than yourself! That’s what I love about Dressing Your Truth, though. They realize that everyone is different so in the course, they give you all the tools you need to make dressing and figuring out your personal style easy and make it work for YOU. I love that.
I would describe my Type 1 style as cute and flirty, but simple and classic…..who also loves a good pair of heels 🙂 Based on everything I learned from Dressing Your Truth over the last 2 years and the suggestions given at my transformation, I put together my attempt in a way that reflects my personal Type 1 style that feels very true to me:
The Dressing Your Truth course taught me:
- How to let go of my inadequacies, flaws and shame and embrace my truth (game changer!)
- How to connect my inner beauty with my outer look – including hair, makeup, clothes and accessories that perfectly express who I am (Love, love, love! My inside matches my outside now!)
- How to walk in a store and easily pick out items that express my nature (I used to hate shopping before DYT – now it’s so much easier….and fun!)
- What colors, design lines, patterns, textures and fabrics are best for me.
- ….and so much more!

I like your attempt much better than theirs. Even though I don’t really know you it looks much more you and you look more comfortable. Thanks for all that you share. I love your blog and have learned so much!
I love the outfit! I am tall and have been looking for some gold flats. What brand are they? I cannot walk on heels!! I also love the cardigan. Is it from DYT or another brand?
Hi Susan! Those cute shoes are from Bass. I loved the color cardigan, too!! It is not from the DYT store and the tag on it says MAK. It’s so lightweight, too – I hope you can find it somewhere.
I have to say that I love the colors of the clothes they picked out for you, they did brighten up your face a LOT….I wasnt impressed with the collared shirt because I don’t like collared shirts! They feel to stiff, even if they are thin and soft…too structured maybe? Thats just me and it didn’t look right on you either. But the colors did! Like you said, we know ourselves better than anyone and what some can wear, others just can’t because its not comfortable to us. I am a simple shirt and jeans girl and don’t layer much either, so I get you on that point! Love your look you picked out for yourself as a do over and your hair looks fabulous!
I hear you, Kari! I Feel the same way about collared shirts!
You looked fabulous in the outfit, and it is great to try new things. I am a 1/4 too and while I was surprised to find I could wear some bigger but light necklaces like the one they gave you, and it is fun to wear things like that occasionally, for everyday, I like smaller, daintier pieces. Same thing with the collared shirts- the colors in that shirt are amazing, but I have yet to find that kind of A shirt that I really love- there is something weird about the way it wears on me… Yet a lot of type ones love those, so, yeah, it is an individual thing. Personally, I love cardigans, so try that over your more fitted soft knit tops and You may really love to layer!
Thank you, Shellie!! 🙂
Totally like your outfit best. The necklace is great…I wouldn’t think to buy it, but it totally brightens up your face. I like button down shirts (like the one from your first outfit) on other people but never feel comfortable in them myself. And I do wear cardigans…but always over a fitted tank or scoop neck tee. Your hair looks awesome!
I’ve been loving the free course…I am definitely a type one!
I thought you may have been a type 1 like me! So cool!!! And I only like to wear cardigans over fitted tanks or short sleeve shirts, too. For some reason, long sleeves over cardigans always bother me. I think it must be the type 1 in us generally liking light things and not feeling so restricted.
Loved your transformation and you looked great! Very welcoming look…
Thank you, Christine!
I love critiquing your look even tho I don’t feel I have much of an eye for style. 🙂 The outfit they picked for you looks a bit frumpy, like it doesn’t fit your body correctly. Your purple top fits much better, but I do like the colors they picked for you. I also think they applied too much powder to your face and washed out your beautiful peachy skin tone (no wonder your eyes and mouth shone!), so I like your own make-up routine better too. And the pants and flats just didn’t seem to suit you. Maybe a better fitting top ensemble with a swing or pencil skirt instead? I like how you made that necklace your own in the jean shirt photo. Great idea.
Janet, I always look forward to hearing your critiques – you have such good eye. I find it amusing that you don’t think you do because you really, really do! You were able to put words into all my thoughts – I am in agreement with everything you wrote.
Have been experimenting and pondering this program/perspective for the last few years and have found it really helpful. One of the things I’ve wondered about is if our primary and secondary are on a sliding scale. There are some people that are so dominantly their first type that I can’t figure out what their secondary type is. Then there are others who have so much of the primary and secondary together that I can’t decide what is their first type! If Type 1 is your first type you might have a lot more Type 4 than others and can blur those borders a bit more than others! Guess that is where your own intuition comes in and making it all your style!
Hi Rosyjo! I know what you mean!
LOVE it! The new look really brightens you up and I love how they did your hair and makeup! It looked very natural too! 🙂
Yep, I could TELL that look they put you in was off when I watched your video on the DYT website, so I had to come see what your reaction was. I love that you’re brave enough to find a way to write both honestly and graciously about that experience. I love your personal style and am so happy to find you writing and pinning about DYT. I share your admiration about the core messages of the program but often feel alienated by the candy-colored explosions of stiff blazers and cutesy lacey dresses they put on all us Type 1 women. Thank you for showing alternatives for how a modern, stylish, casual gal can apply the DYT ideas.
And, for what it’s worth, I LOVED the outfit you were wearing when you came to the studio, and I’m sorry they embarrassed you about the color of the shirt. I think it looked great on you!
Thank you so much for your comment, Kat! Your words of encouragement really meant a lot to me today <3 <3
i am a new DYT convert and trying to gain inspiration from pinterest. I watched your transformation on Carol’s blog and actually loved your outfit, but because it was more “me” than you, haha! I have been trying to determine my secondary type and how to fit that into my style. I guess it is a process of trial and error… I already feel so much happier since I allowed myself to be a “cute and fun” type 1. 🙂 thank you for sharing your experience with us.
Hi Emily! I’m so glad to hear that you are feeling happier! woo!
It look me a looooong time to nail down my secondary – I think it was 8 months or more! Mostly because I felt like I was everything haha! After it was revealed to me, I can’t believe it took me so long to figure it out. It was so obvious. But knowing it definitely helped all the pieces fit together. I believe it will be revealed to you when you are ready for it. I think I needed to fully accept, appreciate and be open to living true to my type 1 nature before I was ready to find out my secondary. And when I did, boom – the secondary was revealed 🙂
So glad you are having fun with this and starting to live more in alignment to the person you were made to be! Life is so much easier and way more fun when we do that!!! Take care!
