identity + style advising
I BELIEVE ALL WOMEN ARE INHERENTLY STYLISH
But few women understand how to uncover their true style.
That's because we typically think of style as merely the clothes we wear and how we're keeping up with the times.
Style is a form of communication, though, not merely a look. And truly stylish women have learned how to leverage style for that purpose. To express their tastes. To communicate their values. To speak their truths to the world.
My gift is empowering women to know and show themselves through their style.
I work with women who are knowledge seekers and self-improvers. Women who appreciate design and aesthetics. Women who choose to live according to what pleases them … and women who aspire to as much.
Women just like you.
why my process works
It starts with what matters most:
You at your core
Most stylists, designers, and courses approach style starting with the look. Then the good ones work with you to make that look work for you.
I think that's backwards.
My approach begins with you. In fact, the majority of my process centers around you: Who are you? What are your core values and beliefs? What do you want the world to know about you?
I don't even get into the aesthetics of style until we're clear on what you're all about. You're that important to your personal style.
In fact, I don't even call it personal style. I call it Core Style. Because it's all about visually communicating who you are at your core.
Only once we have clarity on you do we move on and weave in your ideal looks and vision for your style. I pull from my background in design, education, and strategy to help you align the aesthetics with your identity to create a style that works with and for you. Holistically and authentically.
Core Style is a new approach to thinking about style that brings together identity, design, and aesthetics. The following resources will help you to better understand Core Style and how to move forward in your own Core Style evolution.

Through my work I've found that women fall into one of six different personas. In our lifetime we're likely to live out each one, but knowing your persona right now is the first step in starting your own Core Style evolution.
