a new approach to style
Imagine approaching your style and how you show up as yourself in your body with freedom, ease, fun and purpose. That’s what happens when you embrace the Core Style™ approach.
First you find the freedom from constantly worrying about how good you look.
Next you find the ease in showing up as yourself.
Then you start to find the fun in dressing yourself again now that the pressure is off.
And, lastly, you discover how to express who you are through how you show up.
Yes, we focus on style, on clothing, on getting dressed. But you’ll find that the work we do together will impact all parts of your life beyond just your wardrobe. Because it’s not really about style.
It’s about your relationship with yourself, gaining increasing clarity on who you are and how you want to be in this world, and finally your conviction around claiming your space by showing up proudly and unapologetically as yourself.
It just so happens that we pursue these changes through style.
a little about jessie
I'm the tea-drinking, type-A former designer and current coach behind everything you find here. And, yes, officially my name is Jessica but please call me Jessie. All my friends do.
When I’m not curled up on the couch reading, taking personality tests, or making my fourth cup of tea for the day, I spend my time coaching women on how to proudly own showing up in their skin and style.
I have a background and training in costume design, a love I found after I didn’t quite click with the culture of the fashion world in NYC. In costume design we believe that a look is never more important than the story we’re trying to tell. I feel the same about style and the women I work with.
The most important thing for me is the woman: who she is, what she’s all about, and how she wants to interact in the world. True style has little to do with the clothes and everything to do with the woman who wears them. So that’s where I focus, on the woman herself.
I’m also a firm believer that we’re far too obsessed with looks and bodies in today’s culture, so I bring healthy body image practices into my coaching that compliment the anti-diet, HAES, and body-neutrality movements.
what my clients are saying …
I moved into a tiny home to travel across the country for two years, and I had to cut my wardrobe way down. I didn't know what to do. I was going to have three drawers and a two-foot wide closet! Jessie helped me so much. She taught me how to go through my pieces and find the things that spoke to me for work or camping or travel or fun and still made me feel like me. Even with my limitations on space, I now feel like I can show up to any event that happens in my life and feel confident and comfortable (and I’ve even started embracing my wrinkles) because of Jessie and Core Style™. Thank you, Jessie!
