is something each of us already has, all we need to do is find it.

Welcome to Sophisticated Curation
Where we unapologetically support a woman’s life experiences through fashion inspirations.
My passion and purpose are inspiring and empowering dynamic women to unleash their greatness by elevating their presence, exuding confidence, and having fun while looking and feeling amazing. Through content, commerce, and connections, Sophisticated Curation, a fashion-oriented community for seasoned female leaders, amplifies the voices and services the interests of the often-overlooked women over age 40 who are avid fashion consumers.
HI, I’M JACQUI
your trusted style coach
Having worked in corporate finance for over 20 years before pursuing my love for fashion, I understand first-hand the desire, and the many questions, about how to lean into your femininity and status as a mature leader in environments where gender and age are often discounted.
Sophisticated Curation is about ensuring that you always present the best you in whatever stage of life you are experiencing – mid-career to retirement, to empty nesting to newly divorced.
I privately work with my clients to build joy and confidence in who they are as women leaders, fashionistas, and individuals who are embracing their lives with fashion selections that enable them to show their best selves. When you’re confident in your look, there’s no stopping what you can achieve. You can kill it in a boardroom presentation, and still go out to cocktail hour after work and look fabulous.
Curated Fashion Experiences
I offer ½ day Guided Shopping excursions to destinations based on fashion interests, closet goals, and suggested shopping cities – Philadelphia, New York, Atlanta, and Los Angeles. You will also have access to some insider tips, and other amazing women in the group. Shop like a stylist by accessing a selection of curated specialty stores, local boutiques, and off-the-beaten-path vintage spots.
WATCH AND GET INSPIRED
Let’s hear what’s new and interesting in fashion with my weekly show, The 20-Minute Fashion Distraction.
The 20-Minute Fashion Distraction, conceived during Covid, was my way of connecting with the Sophisticated Curation community by weekly sharing fashion insider tips, industry leader interviews, and closet hacks for the savvy fashionista. Each episode is only 20-minutes because your time is valuable, but it’s always great to get some quick fashion joy and inspiration.
