How to Find Your Style


Our personal style is always changing and hopefully evolving, but if you feel like you don’t know what our style is, what to wear, what looks goods, then you’re normal!

The first thing I do when working with any client is ask questions.  What do you want to look like?  Where are you shopping now?  Once those questions are discussed I’ll have a good idea of what your “style image” is.  Next, it’s time to go through all clothing and accessories.  This is how to determine what is working for your body and towards your “style image” goal.

From there it’s easy to create a check list of items to buy.  The next step is the actual shopping.  Lastly, I coach my clients on how to put their outfits together.

Finding your style like everything else is a process.  My job is to make the process easy, manageable and fun!

Working together normally takes two or three, 2 hour sessions to accomplish the task of ‘finding your style’.  My current “Finding Your Style” session is going for $200 (normally $300).  This is a limited special.  To book your session, e-mail me at !

Things that Inspire

D. Jacobsohn Designs:

From a design standpoint, adding pieces from nature to decorate with adds such depth in any style of home.  Modern, traditional, contemporary or any room for that matter needs touches of nature, such as rocks, shells, antlers, fur, wood.  Display them in collections, small groups or one larger item will add such interest and balance to any room.

I think if using natural items from nature like recycling.

I come from Alaska and everyone hunts, not for sport but for food.  If you hunt, then why not use the bones…. not for everyone, but I find them to be beautiful.


Marble is one of my fav’s, but it is hard to take care of, but as a back splash- clever!

kitchens - pot filler marble subway tiles backsplash Kitchen cooktop with pot filler and marble subway tiles backsplash.


I really love drift wood and reclaimed barn wood.  I love how the wood was used to make a beautiful headboard.


Fur or animal skins, hopefully from sustainable hunting and not sport or faux!

bedrooms - taupe silk organze drapes gray tufted headboard chocolate brown faux fur throw layered yellow blanket zebra cowhide rug black chest


I love how this deck was built around and with the trees.  No need to cut them down!

Spring Layers

Spring has arrived and I love the lighter layers paired with open toed shoes and light colors.  It’s all so refreshing, careless and cool.  Stripes never looked so good with this seasons hottest shoe, a sporty sneaker.  Matchy matchy is out- add a shoe with color for that added interest.  Dig out those shorts as they go with everything from dressy to tomboy casual.  The key is the balance of the outfit.  If you have baggy shorts then wear a tighter tank with a loose white blouse button up and eye catching sandals.  We all know spring temps are unpredictable so go with lighter layers that you can wrap around your waist or shoulders.  Don’t forget to lighten your make up and hair can be more casual and fun!

Now this is a garden display like none other!

We have been waiting for you, Spring, with open arms. Welcome. Please stay as long as you’d like. I can’t wait until you’ve decorated #CentralPark to look like this picture. Ah…..the beauty.

Shoot your look before you decide

When it comes to any outfit that I put together I always make sure that it’s working for me, but when it comes to getting ‘dressed up’ I snap a photo first.  If you take a photo it will show if the clothing is accentuating or exaggerating your flaws.  A photo can reveal if the length is flattering, or if the color is too much for your skin.  Make sure to try on various accessories to see how they work or don’t with your outfit.  Remember accessories can make or break an outfit as its the icing on the cake.


I liked how this dress fell on by body.  I added a long pearl necklace doubled up or could have gone with a simple pendant necklace.


If the skirt was a bit shorter this would have looked a bit more flattering, but too business looking for the event I was attending.


I tried to skip the jacket and go for a vest to show a little skin.


I put on a lace Ralph Lauren blouse that was pretty with the lace skirt.  The shoes and necklace added a little more glam to the entire look.


The Burberry lace skirt came with this lace camisole but the top didn’t add any shape to my body.  I decided to go with the first white outfit.

This process takes a lot of time, but you can see how creative you can get with just a few pieces.  I like looking at how the clothes look on the camera as it gives me an idea of what other people see.  Planning what your going to wear is key to looking your best.  Don’t just stop at ‘buying the outfit’ but go all the way with experimenting with your shoes, handbags and jewelry.

Sneaker Ball

Attending fundraisers is always a pleasure.  I really enjoy supporting local causes and especially when they benefit children.  There is nothing more heartwarming than knowing you can do something to make a difference in a child’s life.

The Sneaker Ball was a benefit to raise money for Jaden’s Ladder and their “Ballers to Scholars” Program.  This ball took place at the beautiful Empire Restaurant & Lounge in Boston.

This time of the year we have plenty of snow and temperatures ranging in the 40’s and lower in the evening.  So deciding what to wear wasn’t hard, but keeping warm was!!  You know me, I’ll practically wear anything for fashion, so I wore my shorts!

When wearing sneakers I don’t normally think of dresses, but plenty of ladies rocked this look.  I like to be sporty when I can, so shorts and a tank worked perfectly with my wedge sneakers!

The evening was a huge success!  The event was well attended, in the chic’s place, gorgeous food, great dj, stunning decor and us in our sneakers!


At this age, know how to dress

Once I hit 40 I felt the need to ‘think’ about the way I looked at my wardrobe.  I want to dress appropriate for my age, but still feel young and can look fashionable, which can be done at any age.

Looking at my clothing I ask:

~ Is the quality of my clothing good?  No rips, holes, stains or faded clothing acceptable at this age.

~ Are my pieces of clothing enhancing my body?  Not too long or short, tight or big but giving me the right curves and hiding all the right things.

~ Do I have the right undergarments?  No panty lines are allowed and bras must be enhancing.

~ Do my shoes look fresh?  There is nothing worse than scuffed or dirty shoes on a great outfit.  I also make sure I have several different types of shoes with various heel size, color and style.

~ Do I have the right handbags?  Don’t skimp on a great bag.  You will be surprised at how many times you’ll use it if it’s a high end bag.  Less expensive bags are considered trendy and basically disposable.

~ Do I have a variety of accessories?  Gold, silver, chains, charms, chain link, watches, earning and trendy jewelry.

Without a doubt, I must have hair, nails and skin that look as good as possible.  I wash my face twice a day, hair every other and if I don’t have a fresh manicure then I keep my nails short and clean.

I care about my body so I do work out 3-5 times a week and eat clean as possible and drink plenty of liquids.  I started drinking warm water with lemon in the morning to jump start my digestive system, then coffee and light but mostly protein breakfast, tons of fruit and salads.

I do get between 7-9 hours of sleep every night and keep a pretty tight schedule during the day.

What I’ve found is that the key to knowing how to dress is balancing the outfit.  If you have on a flare skirt then wear a tank top or if my shirt is short then I wear a blazer to cover up.  When I wear leggings I wear a simple shirt then a longer sweater or blazer to cover up a little bit.

Right now I’m into wearing silk, blazers, layering and dressing in monochrome with one pop of color.

If you’re going to get dressed, why not do it better as you get older.  Every year work a little harder on something that you could do better.  It all becomes a habit and then the next thing you know you’ll look as good as you can!
