Exploring Super Styles – What’s Your #1 Shopping Criterion?

Great shopping rarely “just happens”.  Whether it’s conscious or not, there’s usually a set of shopping strategies that underpin shopping that truly works – that results in needed and loved items which bring something valuable to the wardrobe of the woman purchasing it. 

So knowing what your shopping strategies are is supremely useful, especially if you connect it to your personality.  Which is our entire focus here — identifying the style essence for each of the 16 personalities to create 16 Style Types  – truly a world-first approach to connecting style and psychology!

But we do more than that in this series of posts exploring the Super Styles  – we make it easy for you to stand back and take a big picture look at how you’re approaching your style through the lens of these four fabulous Styles:  the SF Style Aesthetician, the ST Style Pragmatist, the NT Style Strategist, and the NF Style Dreamer.
