The Pouncing Courier
"Working with Kati was truly enjoyable. The analysis gave me both
- personalized recommendations of shapes, fabrics, contrast levels;
- all wrapped with Kati's unique view, imagination (that is an essential part of the B5/FB system) and talent for creating cohesive outfits with the right level of visual interest and movement.
I especially recommend online shopping/getting a complete outfit put together by Kati. It helped me realize that a list of personalized recommendations is never rigid, there's a lot of room to play/borrow/get inspired, and that the Angel's balance can actually be expressed as oscillation/juxtaposition."

" I decided to get an analysis with Kati because I thought the fantastical angle was intriguing and refreshing. Kati asked for some of my favourite things in a questionnaire and I really loved that she was able to incorporate some of them in the vision she had for me. It made it easy for me to connect with the analysis on a deeper level.
After I had given the necessary material for her to analyze, I received a recording with a thorough head to toe explanation of the look she had in mind. I loved listening to the recording not only because everything was well explained, but also because you could hear her enthusiasm and dedication and it made me feel special. It felt like I was listening to a good friend that cared deeply for me.
After processing the recording, I had a few more specific questions and she gladly answered them thoroughly and in detail. I truly appreciated this because to me that is a real sign of trying to provide the best service possible. The Pinterest board that she made for me was visually really beautiful and it captured the essence of my type very well. Overall I can highly recommend getting an analysis with Kati."

"I gave myself the most wonderful gift recently: a Fantastical Beauty Style analysis, the artistic vision of the gorgeous Kati Clysm. We each find our true style 'home' in various ways & with the words of a variety of stylists/friends. I've gotten a lot of good ideas from people over the years yet felt like I was forever wandering around the labyrinth, close to but never finding my center. With much thanks to Kati, I feel like I'm home. ❤
In The Fantastical Beauty system, I am Nymph leaning Fae. ❤❤❤ In Kati's words, "Your lines alone would land you solidly in Nymph, but taking into account personality and other factors pushes you heavily toward Fae. Your secondary influence is the light, ethereal, and elegant side of Fae. You can choose bring in the cheekier, more mischievous side as well, but smaller touches will be more effective. There is a tinkling quality to even the most somber of Fae, and those influenced by the type. Nymph gives you a base of earthy sensuality, and Fae pushes it from languid into ethereal; from earth floating up into the air."
I was blown away by the comprehensiveness of her work - a detailed questionnaire starts things off (and that in itself got my mind into interesting spaces). She gave specific recs re: clothing lines, fabrics, prints, silhouettes, details, and accessories. I have struggled with footwear & outerwear, and those were addressed fully. I begged for silhouette ideas, and I am soooo happy with Kati's vision for me. She also talked of hair, makeup, my overall 'look', and additional details to help me get the feel of my place in that center space of 'home'. Her write-up included polyvore visuals, collage, and she created a Pinterest board for me that I look at every day, sometimes several times a day, because I am so in love with it & it inspires me. ❤ She intends to add to it, as she finds items, and so will I .
Having spent way too much time banging my head against a wall regarding color, Kati's color palette suggestion for me is invaluable! She encouraged me to tweak & interpret, as I did not see her in person, and yet I find her tight choices of colors & neutrals to be -oh - perfection. 😍
Kati responded to every question I had, and I love her vision for me. Her words put a loving perspective on my struggles & body insecurities. I feel I've been given this incredible gift, and I can't thank her enough. She envisions me as a Serene Butterfly Priestess. I'm honored.❤"

I am thoroughly pleased with my Fantastical Beauty analysis. My love of sparkle and glam (No surprise for a Dragon Princess!) often felt at odds with my uber-casual lifestyle. Kati was able to seamlessly merge the two and allow me to shine, even while hiking with my dogs or watching Netflix at on the couch. The visuals she provided - individual Pinterest Board and outfit sketches in the guide - continue to be immensely helpful. I'm also really grateful for the time Kati took to answer all my questions and clarify her vision for me after the analysis. Thank you, Fairy Godmother!!

"It has been a true delight collaborating with Kati in figuring out my personal style! I worked with her long distance. Based on a very thorough (and fun!) questionnaire, photos, and a video clip - she identified my fantastical beauty type (Fae! Garden fairy subtype!), as well as my Base 5 type (Spirited Linear).
As if that weren't enough - she went on to ID my personal color palette, create a pinboard for me that synthesized all her wardrobe ideas + an audio recording of her thoughts, and provided me with unique styling and cut recommendations based on my body type and measurements. It was great fun - and I was amazed at how accurate she was in describing me, and my energy, and what does (and does not) work for me.
She opened my eyes to possibilities I hadn't considered. She even talked me into cutting my hair much shorter- and it was such a good idea! Kati has a special ability to "see" people - not just their forms, but their spirit and energy - and bring that to life through fashion and fantasy. On top of that, she is incredibly generous answering questions and educating clients about color, shape, and so on. I can't recommend working with her highly enough! It has been a sincere pleasure."

Style: Fantastical beauty type guides
I recently bought the Seer guide and found it to be very detailed. I was amazed by how much the recommendations and imagery felt tailored to me. Even the recommendations for perfume match the type of scents I love. I think I might like to incorporate a leaning (maybe with jewelry?) and will definitely be purchasing a second guide to better do so!
Just wanted to say how much I love the Mermaid guide! It's the most utterly delightful style guide I've ever read! And the personality bits are eerie. People always think I'm not paying attention to them, even if I am. I sent those bits to my BF and he was like, "YES!" It's such a fascinating, impressive system!
I have just download the Nymph style guide - and oh my, Kati, it is fantastic (literally, ha)!! Everything resonates so much as I am reading it. I love how it conveys a story of the type, and how in-depth the recommendations are. Really going to enjoy exploring this more! <3
