    This was a great class. Nancy really knows her stuff and presented great ideas. Most importantly, she went out of her way to make me feel comfortable....I was outside my comfort zone but was immediately put at ease. I look forward to additional Dabble classes with her. I left knowing that I could make some small changes and that they would be successful.

    This class was great! Nancy is the real deal. She's a true authority on image/personal branding/style, etc. She is knowledgable and an excellent communicator, as well as being an all around pleasant, helpful person. Take all of her classes!

    PS - This sounds too good to be true, so I want to say that I'm not her friend, client, daughter, or mother. Just a grateful student :)

    Very enlightening. This is a tough topic, and Nancy did a great job explaining it.

    This is the second class I took from Nancy and it was great. Her classes are organized and very informative. She presented the material in a way which was easy to understand and I was able to use the information immediately.

    My friend and I signed up to learn more about using color appropriately in our respective wardrobes. I had fun learning about the color wheel. The best part was using the different drapes on each other to see which colors actually work best for everyone's skin, hair, and eye colors. It was impressive to see my friend's eyes brighten just with changing the drape!

    This class was very helpful to me. It refreshed my understanding of color. It taught me the basics in using color to improve my wardrobe and my overall look. I now know the basics in identifying what colors work for me and for others.

    Nancy has an obvious depth of knowledge in this area. She communicated the principles of color in a way that I could grasp. There was a great balance between the technical and fun. I walked away knowing what "my colors" are as well has how to identity them. I am waiting for an opportunity to attend this class again along with some of my friends.
