Hi there! I’m Jackie and I’m glad you’ve found my blog – I hope you continue to follow me and my musings. Cosmos + Cardigans is all about fun: fashion trends, style, beauty products, and of course shoes (what can I say, shoes are my weakness)! I also blog about things and people who inspire me, pop culture, great books to curl up with and health topics that pique my interest…and maybe even a recipe once in a while.
I blog for real women with realistic budgets. I am a bargain shopper, and I’m pretty good at it – very rarely do I pay retail for anything (although I do splurge once in a while). It’s the thrill of the hunt, ladies and I will share some of my secrets with you!
In the real world I am a marketing ‘guru’ for a construction company in Western Pennsylvania. I enjoy all things marketing: advertising, PR, social media, event coordination, and much more. I studied Communications at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. My husband, Oliver, and I met while studying at Duquesne and have been married for almost 8 years – wow, how time flies!
My personal style is a combination of classic and fashionista. I love experimenting with the latest trends, but also feel at home in the classics. I pride myself in the ability to know which pieces to spend money on, which are best purchased at bargain prices, and how to make the whole look come together.
