The Q&A Video

  1. I would love to try this program because lately I feel like I’m stuck in a rut. I could use a little help to get out of it!

  2. I want the course more for my children than for me. One of them in particular is really struggling with self-image and finding their place (12 yrs old). I think I could really help if I better understood the things that Dressing Your Truth seems to teach. Pick me!

  3. I have been really interested in this! I enrolled in the free course. Thank-you for sharing this site with us. I would love to have the direction I need so I can enjoy the shopping process. Shopping for clothes just about gives me an anxiety attack. I just don’t know what I am looking for.

  4. I would love to try this program because I am stuck in the mom rut. I run and chase my kids around to school and activities all day and I have no time for myself. I would love to learn how to look better as I chase around the kids

  5. I would SO love to win this. I’ve been feeling so frumpy and disconnected lately. I have looked into it since your post, but the cost is just not something I can take on right now. 🙁

  6. I have a 15 month old boy and another little one on the way. Becoming a mother has been an amazing experience for me, but I’ve noticed over the past year or so that I’ve started to lose touch with who I am as a woman and a photographer. Dressing your Truth seems like a good way to get back on track and winning the subscription would be amazing! Thank you for the chance!

  7. This is really interesting! I hate shopping and makeovers, etc because I never know what looks good or what fits my personality. This sounds great.

  8. I would LOVE to win your giveaway 🙂 I’ve always felt like I don’t really have a style of my own, so I was super interested when you first posted about Dress Your Truth. I looked into it and hope to one day purchase something from them when the funds are aligned properly. It seems like you really whole-heartedly learned something worthwhile from them, and I’d love to experience that kind of certainty in my style 🙂 It seems like I’m always just buying what’s on sale, or buying “work clothes” without knowing what I’m doing, haha!

  9. I would love to win this course. I am at the point in my life where I’m down to one child at home, I work full time, I’m going to school to try and figure out “what’s next” in my life, and unfortunately my body is changing and I don’t know how to dress myself anymore! I desperately need the help… 🙂

  10. A month ago, we lost our baby after I miscarried. My whole world has been rocked to the core, and some days are better than others. We hadn’t planned on another baby, but it was such a sweet surprise to find out we were expecting again. Everything in life seemed to be falling right into place, and then I stared having complications. I’ll never forget seeing the ultrasound and my baby with no heartbeat, an image that will forever be burned into my memory.

    I’m struggling to find joy in the everyday, and to express gratitude for the life I already have. I need a new beginning.

    Thank you Brooke for the opportunity 🙂

  11. I would love to update my style to be more relatable to my ever growing clientele who are young and hip. It would be totally amazing.

    What a kind gesture for you to give away this amazing gift. We all need to feel great about ourselves.


  12. I would love to do this course because I’ve always struggled with being a little bit bigger and taller than a lot of girls and not really being able to wear whatever I want and have it look good. I feel like I have no idea what my style is and I think I could benefit from learning more about how to be confident in my own skin.

  13. What a great giveaway! I know since having my two little ones (and now with one on the way), it can be easy to get stuck in a rut of jeans plus whatever-clean-shirt-I can-grab 🙂 Would love to do this program!

  14. Hi Brooke, When Liz Arcus was visiting she did a Beloved session with my husband and I and we have fallen in love all over again. In February we will have been married for 42 years and since retiring as a K-8 art teacher four years ago, I have been feeling frumpy and have gained weight. I have already started to take care of the weight problem, and I think participating in the Dressing Your Truth program would go a long way to making a difference in my life. Thank you for giving someone this opportunity.

  15. I would love to improve my self image, I know I don’t spend enough time investing in me, my clothes or appearance and this would really make a difference in my life if I won it.

  16. This program looks amazing. I hate going shopping by myself because I always seem to buy things I that don’t really look good on me and don’t express who I am. Lots of times I see pictures of myself and think – Wow! I didn’t think that’s how I look…but I guess it must be. I’d love to find my style and see a picture of myself that looks like more of who I am on the inside. LOVE LOVE LOVE the transformation that you’ve gone through!!! Thanks so much for bringing us along your journey.

  17. What an awesome giveaway! When I saw your transformation and read about your journey I thought it would be awesome to try it out, but it wouldn’t fit in our budget… so thank you for the chance! When I read about how you felt before, that’s how I feel! Trying to manage two small kids and be the provider while my husband is in school and do well at both can be a lot of pressure! I would love to try out this program and learn to be more confident in who I am. Thanks!

  18. I would love to feel confident about what I’m wearing, especially with clients and on shoots@ I definitely think your clothing helps to draw out the best (or worst!) of you, so I’d love to nail my wardrobe!

  19. I would LOVE to win this incredible opportunity!!! I have just felt so worn down after going through cancer treatments (all gone now – yay!!!) and I just feel like I need a transformation to match my new zest for LIFE! I have seen your transformation and it is AWESOME!!!! I would love to feel beautiful again! Thanks!! xoxo

  20. I saw your post about this just the other day and was very intrigued. I had heard of dressing your truth before, but never tried it because of the expense. Over the last year I’ve lost 60lbs. It has been a huge blessing, and has required me to have a real attitude of persistence, still I still have another 80 lbs to go:/ As silly as it is,I find myself putting off my happiness and enjoyment until I loose all the weight. I know this isn’t right, but I just don’t think I really understand the treasures I carry with me day to day. After watching your Q&A I believe that this could really help me understand just what it is I have to offer the people in my life, and give me a reason to stop waiting to feel,look, and truly be beautiful.

  21. What an amazing opportunity! I’ve been meaning to write you and tell you that I think you may have changed my life. After reading your post I had tears welling up. I am totally there.

    I joined the free program (amazing!!!) and my husband and I have been playing with the budget trying to get the money together before the promotion ends. Winning would be such a blessing.

    As I told my husband about it, he was like…you need this. So often I tell him I don’t feel like leaving the house because I hate my clothing…all this time I totally thought it was me!! Turns out after 31 years, I just don’t have a clue how to dress myself! This has been a particularly tough summer of trying to find my own identity. We’ve had 3 kids in 4 years and I lost myself somewhere along the way.

    Thanks for the opportunity, I know whomever wins will be truly blessed! 🙂

  22. BROOKE! You are always an inspiration and I was so intrigued with your mention of Dress Your Truth that I followed the link and got sucked right in…I realized that all these years I have been suppressing my truth…and I bought the online course but I couldn’t figure out what type I was. I knew what type I WANTED to be but thought I was another type. I resisted, I analyzed, I took notes and finally decided to make peace with the type I thought I was. THEN! I woke up in the middle of the night with the answer and it wasn’t the type I thought I was. REVELATION! Thanks for cluing me in, this is exciting!!

  23. Brooke! what a fun giveaway! right after i read your blog post about DYT, i went onto their website and totally searched their site! I want to do the program so bad, but $99 is pretty steep for us right now since we are living on a med school budget. Anyways, i feel like i could totally benefit from the program. I wake up everyday with no motivation to do ANYTHING! it’s hard to even get dressed for the day, especially when i know that i know i will end up getting some kind of slobber or stain on my clothes from my kids. being a mom of young kids is hard… you know that! they take all of my attention and i have a hard time allowing myself to spend time on ME. I would love to learn how to feel confident in myself and let that confidence shine in other aspects of my life.
    Anyways, thanks for this opportunity!!

  24. I did freelance photography way back in the 80’s which led to an interest in TV Production. After 11 years of working at a NBC affiliate in Tampa I was laid off. Working in a control room and in tv production I got use to dressing way down… mainly jeans…. I didn’t even wear much make-up. I was laid off in 2007 and have since gotten back into freelance photography. I need to find a new look, I am lost, when it comes to shopping I get depressed, I don’t know how to be a woman any more!!! Help Please!!!

  25. I think it’s incredible that when you feel good on the outside it makes you feel more beautiful on the inside, and the domino affect it has on all the other areas of one’s life. This giveaway provides all of us with the opportunity to learn more about ourselves and who wouldn’t want that!! I just got a promotion at work and I am also embarking on my own business as well….so this giveaway presents itself at just the right time. I’d call that~ the law of attraction!!!!!!

  26. Hi Brooke.
    I’d love to have a membership because my closet is such a mishmash of things I mostly don’t like to wear. I never really know what I’m looking for IF I shop for myself…which I rarely do.

  27. Such a fun giveaway! Thanks for sharing about this. I have never loved shopping and get my fill of it shopping for kids. I am always frustrated when shopping for myself. I honestly haven’t bought a new dress for more years than I care to admit to the public.

  28. I would be interested in this program because since I have gained weight I put zero effort into clothing myself. I buy a stock short sleeve shirt in different colors for summer and a 3/4 sleeve shirt in different colors for winter. I call it my uniform. I feel ugly. Cathi Wyatt

  29. I’ve had the same hairstyle since I was 16 and the same clothes… about since then too! I’d love to change, but I hate to shop. The description you gave of going into a store and knowing what to look for and how much more quickly it goes sounds like heaven.

    BTW I love your new hairstyle – the curls work perfectly, so cute!

  30. Brooke!!!!
    WOW…I think this was meant to be…I have recently been in such a “slump”….I couldn’t even sign up for your “Photo Basics” class that I wanted to do so badly, but had NO motivation 🙁 I recently noticed that I live in yoga pants a t-shirt and pony tails all the time ….oh, and the color black at that! ……Just thought I’d share a little about me!

  31. Brooke,

    I’ve purchased the course and think it is so interesting. I found out my energy movement is Type 2, and now I’m learning what that entails. It is so fun. I would love to be reimbursed – thanks for the giveaway!

  32. I would love the product “Dressing Your Truth”. Not sure if I could use it for this particular purpose but I am the Director of a girls ministry called “A Place for Us” ( and we take in girls in our residential program who are in a type of crisis situation…pregnancy, cutting, suicide, addiction, abuse, etc. Some of our girls I feel could benefit from having this since they come to us (for the most part) with a damaged self image along with a host of other problems. We feel that this would be beneficial for some of this residents.

  33. I would LOVE a new “update”. I’ve recently found myself in a slump in all areas of my life. After I turned 40 (almost exactly a year ago), I started feeling sorry for myself and didn’t want to put much work into myself. I have a LOT of friends around me that have also hit the big 4-0 and they did the opposite of me… they are hitting the gym, running marathons, entering “mud races” and looking FABULOUS! I decided just last week to take my life BACK into my own hands and I’m back in the gym (a tough one at that). I’m kicking my self into gear and doing things FOR ME! I’d love to continue to honor myself by adding this program to the new me (the me with a new attitude – not necessarily the one who’s body will *hopefully* be becoming slimmer!). 🙂

  34. Hi Brooke!

    Thank you so much for all your posts on Dressing Your Truth. I am on Day 5 of the free course, and I am just amazed at what I have learned about myself. When I stared the videos, I was so sure that I was a Type 2, because I feel I am shy and reserved and very cautious, but after watching video after video, I have realized that I am truly a Type 1, which is crazy and really eye-opening! I can’t believe I have burying my true self for so long.

    It now makes sense that trauma that I had gone through at a young age, has made me feel that I need to protect myself from people and experiences. The thing is that I have always been happy when I am silly or going out and just not having a care in the world. I feel free and happy!

    It’s funny because when people meet me they always say I am cute and carefree, but I have never felt like that, but watching the videos has completely changed my perspective! They are just seeing my true nature.

    Thank you so much for this post! I would love to win this course to continue to become my true self! 🙂

  35. I’d love to revamp my look (and attitude about myself)! As a mom of 2 young kids, I easily fell in to the trap of being frumpy and not caring about my appearance because I’m too busy changing diapers and filling sippy cups. I want to look and feel more like myself (who I think I am, anyways!) for my husband,and also for my kids-I want to model a healthy self-image that isn’t obsessive but is thoughtful!

  36. There are so many wonderful stories on the pages of this giveaway. I started not to enter, and then I thought that I have my own story, too. I am older than most of the entries on this page, but we are leaving a country and people that we love (this week, in fact) and returning to the states after many years of doing humanitarian work overseas.

    I would like to make a fresh start and think that this program might just be what I need.
    Great giveaway. Thank you, Brooke. You look beautiful and I love your photography courses.

  37. I have recently gone through “the change”, and silly as it may sound….it feels like puberty in reverse. Suddenly I have no idea what I look good in, and I look in the mirror and wonder, “Who are you?” Where I used to feel pretty sure about myself and what I looked good in, I no longer really know. This course would help me deal with some of the frustrations and mid-life identity issues that come with this new phase of my life.

  38. I have lost about 20 pounds and would love a guide for shopping…but an all around improvement for my confidence and understanding of those around me. I have gone through her 5 day free program and am very intrigued to learn more!

  39. This is SO cool – since I live out in the middle of no where an on line make over is just what I need!!!! When I was visiting my sister Betty in Washington DC in May the convenience store clerk commented to my sister that is sure was nice that grandma could come and visit (meaning me !!!!) when we got outside she said….I told you not to wear that shirt – you look just like mom….and you need a haircut too!!!! We didn’t have enough time to get it all done – now I am back in rural America and it’s just not happening 🙁 Maybe I could win this or an all expense paid trip to my sisters with enough time to get it all done!

  40. I would love to try Dressing Your Truth because I feel like I’ve come to a crossroad. I recently turned 40 and my youngest child is suddenly in double digits. I’m not that “hip, young mom” anymore, but neither do I want to be an “out-of-date, old woman” either. Suddenly, I find myself lost when I shop. Am I too old to wear that? Am I too young? I never really knew what I was doing anyway, but now I’m really perplexed.

  41. Hi ya Brooke, Thinking of signing up simply from your endorsement and love of your new style. Cheers! Need an update and would love proper advice. Still don’t know how to shadow an eye correctly. Interested in the elements other then color. Love the responses and that you’re giving us all a heads up. : )

  42. Hi Brooke,

    Like so many others have said, since becoming a mum I have lost a sense of who I am other than a mum. I used to love clothes and always tried to look my best. This has not been the case since having my daughter. My poor husband!

  43. When my first child was born, I feel like I lost myself and my purpose. Then I found some purpose in photography. Something to do for me, and my brain, and my creative side. I had a purpose again. Then my second child was born and I went through several changes, including moving into a very fashion conscious society. I have been having a hard time figuring out how to define “me” in so many ways. Your post was a great answer to me, and I signed up right away! I am already learning so much about what makes me “me” and what makes my family members the way they are. It is so much fun! Thank you!

  44. I would love to win this giveaway. My aunt has told me how amazing this is. I feel that after 30 years, I still don’t know what looks good on me. I feel like a frumpy mom and I am always so envious of everyone else who seem to always look so amazing. I am on a mission to discover who I really am, and I love to learn new things about myself. Thanks for always being so generous with your knowledge and amazing things you have come across.

  45. I would love this program because I have been wearing the same clothes since high school and now as a new mommy I need serious help finding a new look. Thank you for sharing such a great program!

  46. I find myself at a new crossroads. I am a mom of 5 and now I have only 1 at home with many, many hours of new time to myself. I have two part-time professional gigs (photography and teaching knitting) but I’m at loose ends in terms of what I really want and where to go from here. The bottom line is that I need to cultivate the skill of caring for myself after 25 years of caring for my children nearly 24 hours a day. I feel this course would be a step in that direction for myself, which would increase my business confidence and help me move forward to my new normal. Thanks Brooke, for this generous offer!

  47. I would love to win this giveaway because I’m about to start a new fashion and beauty series on my blog and would love to dive into it having taken the course. I think it will really strengthen my approach to the series and make my content more solid.

  48. Hi Brooke,

    I meant to comment on your last post, you don’t need to use this as entry in the giveaway. But I was a little put out after reading your post and thinking how I won’t have any budget to shop much or get my hair cut for a very long time. So I marched into the bathroom and cut it myself to just a few inches long. You pushed me over the edge. Totally googled how to cut short hair (: The next day I went to a garage sale and found clothes that fit me for 25 cents a piece. I have a hard to fit body shape, so it was a surprise to find anything. Right down to a converse dress I had seen in a store last year and wanted badly.

    It just so happened the day after my hair cutting clothes finding extravaganza, I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary. I may or may not have pranced around in my new dress and rejoiced over never having to comb my hair again.

    Anyways, LOVE your hair. It looks great on you!

  49. As soon as I read your post I immediately checked out the program and watched all their videos – I was so intrigued! I thought that if I had 99 dollars I would do this right now! I would love to discover more about myself and how to be more comfortable in my own clothes and skin. It would be such a relief to know what I’m actually looking for in a clothes store, or to give specific directions to a hair stylist, or to have a clue what is on that giant makeup aisle.

  50. Hi Brooke,
    I love your blog and what you’ve shared about Dressing Your Truth is so interesting. I’ve taken many personality tests in the past, but feel like they were very dependent on how I was feeling that particular day. I love the psychology around this … and to be able to better understand others and how to relate to them would be fantastic. And if I could figure out why I have a closet full of clothes and rarely want to wear most of them would be a huge help! Love your fresh new look!

  51. I am a mother of four kids ages fifteen to eight and also a budding photographer. I’ve feel like I have given most of myself to my family, and I think that is a good thing. It is wonderful to give service and to feel needed. But I also feel like the time has come to really spend a little more time on myself so I can really be there for my family as my very best self. In reading of your experience I think this program would help me accomplish this. I would love the chance to try!

  52. I would love to Start this program. Since I had my son 10 months ago, I’ve been in a rut. Nothing fits the same & my body has completely changed. I’m also a stay at home mom & really shouldn’t wear yoga pants everywhere. Dressing the way I am now doesn’t help my attitude or self image.

  53. i think my story is pretty common to many others out there. since i had my son i haven’t really felt like my self. i love him more than anything and can’t imagine my life without him but i also feel like part of myself is lost. i used to be so filled creative energy running here and there making this or that and volunteering on top of a busy full time career. since he came along i barely feel like i have the energy to brush my teeth before i go to bed at night. my self image has definitely suffered as a result…a many a day do i go to work with wet hair, glasses and no make up. think that this might help me get my butt in gear!!!!!
    ps you look great : )

  54. I would love to be able to go through this program! I’ve been dealing with depression since the beginning of July and I really have lost sight of who I am. It’s extremely discouraging because I’m a newlywed and I feel like I should be enjoying this exciting new adventure in my life. Along with the depression, I’ve gained some weight and I don’t ever feel like I’m good enough for anything, especially my husband and that hurts. I’m in therapy and really starting to learn about myself as a young woman and I going through something like the Dressing Your Truth program this would be such a great thing for me and really open my eyes to how valuable I am and that I do have worth. Thank you Brooke for the opportunity!

  55. I whole heartedly believe in the Disney mantra “Faith, Trust & a little bit of Pixie Dust” I have already registered for Dressing Your Truth and am working through the program. I have faith in myself, I will give this an honest attempt (even though I have already questioned aspects of the program – which Carol has pointed out is natural for my type 4, ha), I trust Brooke’s opinion…I think Carol might just have a little bit of pixie dust. Here’s hoping I turn into a princess (not a frog). Cheers to something fresh!

  56. What a beautiful gesture of you to ‘pay it forward.’ Thanks for answering questions on your video. I thought you had an amazing persona before this transformation but see that you are on cloud 9.
    I, along with a gazillion other folks here, would appreciate this opportunity to improve myself.

  57. Beauty comes within we hear over and over. I feel like its only partly true. There can be a mismatch with our inner and outer selves. I have put great work into myself past few years. I feel great joy in the newfound worth I have found inside myself, the outside just doesn’t seem to be worthy of the attention. I feel disappointed in what I see and I don’t put the work in. Now as my photography business is growing, I wish I could put myself forth in a more confident way. I don’t need to be glamour girl, but to have sunshine and a honest beauty coming from the inside and out in an authentic way, sounds like a dream. (And there’s that boob job/cosmetic fund I was saving for that could go for a trip to Paris. lol)

  58. I’m a SAHM, and have certainly fallen into the “frumpy comfy” look. At this point I’m not even sure where to begin again, so this program would certainly help me find my way. Thanks so much for the chance to win!

  59. I’ve recently gone through (and am still trying to cope) a major life trial. It has completely rocked my self confidence and self esteem to the core. I thought I knew who I was as a person, but even the smallest decisions seem to make me question everything. I’d love to find a way to get some confidence in myself again. If learning more about me and about how to feel good in my own skin is achievable through this program, then I’d love to learn more.

  60. What can I say? I’m a fashion hot mess! As I work toward opening my photography business, I would like to look like a professional but more importantly, I would like to FEEL like one. Understanding those around me would be a great bonus. Thank you for the opportunity to continue my education!

  61. What a cool program! I just turned 50 (eeps!) and though I don’t feel 50, I certainly don’t want to dress like I’m 50 either. I love younger fashions but don’t want to look like one of ‘those’ women that dress like a teenager. I’m lost when I go into the clothes store and certainly could use a program such as ‘Dress Your Truth’. Working a part-time job means I can’t waste my money on a look that isn’t me. I’m in a whole new decade at 50. There’s a lot to learn about dressing, getting my makeup to reflect me, wearing colors that are flattering and just looking like the true me. A program like ‘Dress Your Truth’ would be just the thing I need.

  62. I dress three ways:runner (think sweat and dirty shoes), gardener (think brown, over-sized shorts, stained t-shirt, and ancient straw hat), or going to Lee’s (think quick throw-on of something clean, mascara and lipstick…or sunglasses if I don’t have time for that!). I know I could look better if I knew what to wear and had a plan! I shop very little unless I get a discount or a sale and could really use some direction. Also, being in the middle years of life (ok, middle aged) I am not sure what changes to make. Help!

  63. After reading the previous comments I have found that I’m not alone in feeling a little lost with who I am and who I need to be. I have recently been through a deployment for my husband and looking back I didn’t emotionally handle his being gone very well. I lost part of who I am and have been trying to get it back this last month and having a hard time knowing where to start to help myself become the best me. This program is just what I’ve been looking for! Thanks Brooke for sharing your experience and success! You are very fun and motivating! You’ve already helped me tremendously! Thank you!:)

  64. This fall a new chapter of my life began. After 8 years, I have been left with an empty next… you see, my youngest started preschool this fall! And so project me has began. I’m making all of those dreaded appointments that have been put on the back burner… eye doctor, dermatologist, doctor. I need help with fashion too. Just like you helped me figure out who I was as a photographer I’d love to learn how my hair, makeup, and clothing choices will show others a true reflection of who I am!

  65. Like you, I’m the risk taker and my husband is the total opposite! You made me curious to know more about all the personality profiles! I would love to be able to understand and appreciate all types of beauty within each one.

  66. Seeing your new fabulous look, and reading about this program, couldn’t have come at a better time for me. I’d love to be able to give it a try myself! Never a really great shopper, I’ve recently started feeling bored and weighed down by my “look” (or lack thereof). I’ve read books and articles, but haven’t found anything that I can truly relate to. Now, I’m beginning to feel like my feelings about my appearance are weighing me down in other areas of my life, as well. Well, I’m heading into my late 40’s and I have a 3-year-old little girl at home. I feel like I need to perk myself up, in both appearance and attitude, for her sake. Not only so I can be a mother she can be proud of, but also so I can hopefully teach her a thing or two! 🙂

  67. I would love to feel comfortable in what I’m wearing and not worried that I look ridiculous.

    Not to sound like a stalker, but I saw you the other day and I noticed the difference this program has made for you. I would love to have the opportunity to see that change in myself.

  68. This class sounds so fun and just what I need to pick myself up…after breast cancer, health problems, and other struggles…feeling good about myself would be the ultimate!

  69. As a stay-at-home a lot of days I just feel lost. This programs sounds like it might be a way to find myself. Thanks.

  70. I would LOVE to win this. I am stuck in a frumpy mom rut. My baby is now 7 months old so my excuse for wearing sweats all day is long expired. I could really use help!

  71. Hi Brooke…what a great giveaway. Would love to take this class whether I win your giveaway or not. Thank you for providing this opportunity to us..:)

  72. I love your new look. You are beautiful. I want to learn more about this program and would love the opportunity to try it.

  73. Dear Brooke:

    Ever since I got married and started having kids 26 years ago, I have always put myself last. I feel that a long time ago I lost some of who I was in taking care of everyone else and their needs. The girls that used to dress cute, sing, play the guitar and write poetry became the mom who wore t-shirts and jeans, usually whatever was cheapest. My husband recently lost his job, and I feel we are on the verge of a new and exciting direction for our family. I would love it if my appearance would reflect the greatness of whatever opportunity we are headed for with the Lord’s help. Thanks for always inspiring!


  74. This is such a great giveaway! It is so wonderful of you to pay it forward. I read your post and the feelings you shared before you started the program really resonated with me. I can really relate to the feelings you expressed. I feel like this program might be the light in the dark I have been looking for. Thank you for your inspiration to all of us.

  75. Hey Brooke! I just watched the video–you do look great! I was interested in the program when I saw your post the other day so I checked back today to read the it again and was excited to see this giveaway. I’ve been trying different things lately but just haven’t been able to get quite satisfied with “my look” so maybe this will do the trick! P.S. I have the family picture you took of us on my mantel and I still get lots of compliments on it, so thanks again for capturing that for us:)

  76. Dear Brooke,

    I would love to win this program. I have a feeling that learning and applying all of what this program has to offer would be the icing on the cake for me. The last couple of years, I’ve been making more of a conscious effort to find clothing that I feel not only comfortable in but reflect who I am on the inside. I’m not sure that I’m going about it the right way. But I do know that I want my overall appearance to reflect who I truly am. As a wife and mom, I know that feeling confident about myself is vital to being the happiest that I can be. Also, I want to learn all of this and tell my friends and family about it.

  77. You know how when you wake up eager to start a new day only to lose that eagerness upon entering the closet? Ok, that happens to me nearly everyday. I actually enjoy shopping. I love to get good deals but what I’ve discovered, as I’ve recently taken stock, is that I have a lot of pieces. Pieces of a wardrobe puzzle that I can’t match up with anything, so they just sit idly in my closet, gathering dust and not fitting anything – even my body. It’s discouraging! I want to feel complete. I want to feel happy with what I wear and how I look because, ultimately I hope my focus turns to being busy loving life instead of how terrible I look in what I wear. Thank you for your generous offer Brooke. You are truly one of a kind.

  78. Good Morning, Brooke!
    I’ve had 2 or 3 friends mention Carol’s program to me over the past 2 years, but never really looked into it until I read your post! And the timing is perfect! Even if I don’t win the giveaway, which I’d REALLY, REALLY love to win, I’m so happy you’re doing it! Paying it forward and sharing something you love! I’m getting my husband through school with our family of five and it’s a challenge, but we know we’re working towards something better! I was always a very confident person in my high school and college years but somewhere along the way, I’ve lost that. I think it’s time to discover the grown up version of me. I’ve never felt like I know how to choose what to wear – makeup and hair are the things girls are supposed to be good at, but I’m eager to be taught! I love what Leigh Anne just said about “being busy loving life instead of [fretting over] how terrible I look . .” That’s the way it should be! Thank you, Thank you!
    Thanks again, Brooke!

  79. Brooke!
    I just have to say you absolutely RADIATE and I am sure the program has totally inspired you, but I must say the thing that completely inspires people to want to do ANYTHING you do, is that infectious, bright beautiful light inside of you! Magic baby!! Love it. I just wanted to comment and tell you that…I have loved reading the responses on here and have loved to see the new pictures. Love the hair, love the colors, love you! I really just wanted to say that, so don’t worry about putting my name in the drawing…there are some very incredible stories on here and I just wanted to say I love it all!!

  80. Brooke, I would to get a chance for the giveaway! I’ve actually had a deep connection with Carol Tuttle ever since I was doing my Master’s and read her book on forgiveness and healing from sexual abuse. I have recommended this book to at least 30 clients of mine during my training and now in my private practice, and all have learned and healed from the words of this amazing woman. I have not experienced sexual abuse, but went through some experiences in my childhood years that her book propelled me to seek healing and forgive those who hurt me. I would love to continue to learn from her and what she has to offer to all women.

  81. Ms Brooke. I’m not sure how to go about this as there are so many wonderful deserving women on here. How sad there are so many women out there suffering from self image and appearance, I wish every woman who commented could afford to go, it’s so very kind of you to offer a giveaway for something so special!
    To quickly sum up my situation and story in a form that doesn’t require hours to reading or a box of tissue on my part, here it is…
    For the last 12 years I have been paid to not only do women’s hair and makeup and “counsel” them in the process on feeling beautiful about themselves. There is nothing more rewarding than being able to change someone’s outer appearance and have it effect them inwardly. I have loved my job, but just like photography having someone else take your picture is a different experience than being the one behind the camera. Having the opportunity to have someone lift ME up and analyze ME would be an absolute dream come true!
    My own little world has felt very dark lately and this would definitely be a very needed little light. In the last 6 months my husband and I have lost our best friend to heart complications, I gave birth to a beautiful baby boy who was just too early to make it on his own. (This was after almost 7 years of trying to have a child) 2 days after loosing our sweet baby we found out we would not be being accepted into a school program we had really wanted to get into to secure our future, and the final draw was 2 weeks after than my husband was laid off his job and we lost all of our insurance and benefits.
    My body has felt broken, and my self image has hit an all time low. Most days I can’t bring myself to get ready to even look in the mirror, I don’t like what I see. I’m in a rut that I just can’t get out of.
    I need a new start, new hope and a new perspective. Thank you for sharing your new found joy with us, so many of us are in need of a change!


  82. I feel like every single woman/wife/mother on here needs this! How am I any different from them? I’m not. We could all use a little boost, pick-me-up, and burst of energy and more love for ourselves. I too feel like a frumpy, overworked, disorganized, crazy, sleep-deprived, lost soul. My job requires me to be ready at any moment for the media/TV stations to call and most days I silently pray nothing major happens so they won’t call and I won’t have to be on TV. I haven’t gone shopping for new work clothes in years because I absolutely hate, hate, hate it! I have no idea what to wear, how things should fit on me or what’s flattering for my two-kids flabby body. I want to feel beautiful again instead of always living in what I call the “I used to be” moment. You know, those “I used to be pretty… I used to be stylish… I used to be, well, me.” I feel so lost. I want to feel sexy for my husband. I want to exude self-confidence for my daughter so she never has to go through the self-destructive behaviors I did growing up because I was never good enough. I want to look in the mirror and smile instead of frowning.

    I was called to serve in my church as a leader for the girls ages 12-18. My first thought was there is no way I can do this. I’m an old, frumpy mom who has totally lost herself. How am I supposed to help these young women learn who they are and have the strength to go through life’s trials when I don’t even know who I am anymore? I know outward beauty is not the sole answer to this question, but I could really use a boost to help give me the desire and excitement to learn who I am again.

    Thanks for sharing Brooke. You are awesome. And BTW, when you said you had “lost” yourself, I laughed! I have always, all through HS, thought you were amazingly beautiful, talented, kind, and more organized than anyone I know. I am always impressed by how much time and thought and energy you put into knowing who you are, your strengths, your faults, and how to improve yourself and your little family.

  83. Hi Brooke,

    I have been very inspired by your post and thank you for sharing how this program has changed your life.

    I have felt for most of my life that I will workout who I am one day. Forever trying to be the person I would like to be rather than the real me. I would love to win your giveaway and feel that this is SO right for me right now.

    Thanks so much

  84. Hi Brooke. Thanks for sharing your story. Your posts definitely peaked my interest and I’ve watched a couple of Carol’s videos regarding energy types. I *think* I might be a type 4.

    I discovered your blog this summer, I’ve just started a photography business in my “spare” time. I work full time and have two small children.

    I’m very tall and I consider myself a wall flower. I typically try to blend – clad in black, grey or blue – I do my best to not draw attention to myself. Sometimes I worry that I’m not setting the best example for my kids. I’ve never felt “pulled together” like other women seem to be. Perhaps because I’m not dressing my truth!

    Thank you for the opportunity and for all that you do on your blog.

  85. Hi Brooke. First, thanks for this giveaway! Someone is going to get a potentially life-changing opportunity and I think it’s awesome of you to provide that. Second, I would LOVE to be that person!
    When you first posted about this program, I went to the site and left it open for several days. I have looked at every part of her web site! The program looks PHENOMENAL!
    This past year has been a crazy year for me. I lost my mom in March. In August I had weight loss surgery in hopes of breaking the diabetes cycle so prevalent in my family. So far I have lost 36 pounds, and I have a long way to go.
    Dressing your Truth completes my transformation! I am already finding that in becoming a new person, I also have to rediscover who I am and interestingly, over the last six weeks home recovering have done a lot of soul-searching about what I think and what I want out of this life.
    Anyhoo, I would love to win this prize! Thanks for being so gracious and wonderful!

  86. Fabulous Brooke!! You are such a REAL person and unlike so many people I know, not afraid to put yourself out there… the good, the bad, the ugly and otherwise.
    How different our world would be if people could be themselves without fear of rejection, judgment, intolerance or self-righteousness. You spoke of the difficulties you had this past summer and I was transported back a few years to the most difficult time in my life. That was when I learned about EFT, the tapping technique of which Carol is a fan, chakras, and the power that we each have inside of us to heal and move forward.
    Now that I’m finished pontificating, I will sign off by saying congratulations to you and that it only gets better. Truckloads of gratitude, living each moment in the present, especially when you feel good about yourself, is the biggest Blessing of all!! Speaking of Blessings, you have truly been a gift to me and living proof that everything happens according to plan when you stop trying to control it.
    Thank you a trillions times!!

  87. Brooke, I love your photography and loved reading your journey about dressing your truth. Since becoming a new mom sometimes I wonder who I can still be “me” and a mom. I would love to give this to my sister. She recently graduated law school and moved to Washington D.C. to help from a lawyers standpoint schools there implement IEP plans etc. She is a great example to me, and I think some of the things in the program would really benefit her. I for one will be purchasing this, it never hurts to take time, or budget for something that will impact you for the better

  88. When I saw your post about “Dressing your truth” and saw how you shined it didn’t take me many minutes to make up my mind and buy the course 🙂

    One week prior to your post someone close to me told me that I used to be more fun, which started me on a big journey about who I am. In the autumn 2010 I was pregnant with my second child and I felt tired and a lack of energy so I started to do mindfulness task each and every day and before my second child was born I felt really happy for the first time in many years, but the happiness didn’t last long because only 13 days old my newborn son was diagnosed with a very severe incurable muscle disease, he died in my arms on the day he turned 2 months. All this lack of energy came back and it wasn’t until my third son was born in the middle of March this year that I could start to heal and again feel a little happier, but at the same time I felt lost because I didn’t know who I was anymore. And then I saw your post and how you shined and thought to my self “I want to shine too”. So I started the dressing your truth course and two days ago I finally realized who I am and I feel so happy, content and free. And I’m sure I will start to shine soon too. So I really want to thank you for introducing me to DYT. You look truly amazing and are a huge inspiration.

  89. Hi Brooke. Thank you so much for sharing about this program and the change it has made in your life. I have found myself at a place of trying to rediscover who I am and this program sounds like it could help.I think as a homeschooling mom, wife, church volunteer, etc. it can be easy to get your identity wrapped up in what you’re doing and lose your sense of self.In the past year and a half I’ve become a mother-in-law for the second time, a grandmother for the second time, graduated my last child from high school, became an empty nester, was diagnosed with breast cancer, and had a mastectomy and reconstruction.
    I spent a couple of months trying to recover from all the surgeries and found myself in a real “funk”. I have struggled to feel beautiful at all in the midst of this even though my husband is able to look past all the scars and deformities and tells me I’m beautiful every day – I just have a hard time believing it.
    So needless to say I would love to win this prize, and I appreciate your generosity in sharing, I know someone will be very blessed!

  90. P.S. to above comment – the comment says it is the 29th at 12:44 am but I live in the Pacific time zone and it is still the 28th, 11:47 pm. 🙂
