Soft White VS Pure White

Its difficult to find your 'perfect' white - some people look pale, washed out in a pure white, but look incredible in an ivory or oyster white (especially the warm seasons).  Similarily, the cooler seasons look washed out in any kind of beige toned white and need that crisp, clear pure white colour to come alive.  Neutral seaons can handle both.  I always assumed I was some type of neutral, but now I'm wondering - is the pure white better? worse?  I'm slightly confused and would love your input:

Here I am drapped in a warmed toned white - its smiliar to a soft white but with a warmer undertone.


Here I am wearing a crisp, clear true white - its interesting, the natural sunlight brings out the natural bluish, cool undertone of the pure white!!!

I feel great in both shades of white, but as you know, I love feedback!!!

I'm not really good at this stuff lol, but my vote id for the second picture. You seem more lit up. :)

THanks Kimberly - I recently realized that the whites of my eyes look whiter in the true, cool white - so you are right, it does brighten me up somewhat more - Thanks for your feedback - much appreciated!!!

I agree -- I think you look slightly sleepier in the warm white -- but again, like the pinks, it's such a slight difference (IMO).

THanks everyone for your feedback - its great to hear everyone's opinion on this one. I'm actually going to be draped soon, so I'll have to share that experience with you all- the colour mystery will soon be over!!!
