Bonjour mes amies

Je suis Jessie, and my blog Cappuccinos & Consignment, focuses on Life•Style•Travel, and, most importantly, Finance.


I hold a BFA in Fashion Design and French with a Minor in Art History (Mortuary Science and Public Health and Safety are my other degrees.)


I am a huge advocate of creating a luxurious life while maintaining optimal control of your finances. I share tips on everything from mixing patterns to addressing awkward financial conversations with friends to traveling abroad for the weekend. I am an avid Francophile and cappuccino connoisseur.


When I'm not blogging or styling couture and consigned pieces, I'm taking French lessons and listening to 1930s jazz.
