Testimonials




     It is with great pleasure that I write this letter of recommendation for Jamie. I worked closely with Jamie for three years at the Louis Vuitton flagship store on Fifth Avenue in New York as the Ready to Wear Manager. Jamie possesses a rare blend of strong organizational skills, work ethic, and interpersonal ability. 
 I was struck by Jamie's commitment to her work, colleagues, and clients. Not only was she able to effectively meet her client's expectations, she surpassed them. Jamie is extremely diligent, hardworking, and knowledgeable. I knew that I can always rely on her to go the extra mile and do the impossible. She was motivated to remain up to date on the newest trends. She is flexible and creative in her approach to handling problems and making decisions. She thinks on her feet and handles even the most stressful situations with composure and confidence. This quality makes her an asset to any company. Jamie was greatly missed when she left New York City to move to Pennsylvania. I was extremely happy when I found out about Jamie's blog which is a true testament of her ability to share her talents and creative skills with others. -Teresa Reyes  (Reed Krakoff, Store Manager 2010- 2012 LVMH Louis Vuitton, Leather goods and Ready to Wear Manager 2001- 2010 Giorgio Armani, Boutique Manager 1999- 2001)



I had the pleasure of working with Jamie Gottschall on a cover story for a magazine I manage and edit - Upper Saucon Township and Center Valley Life. I work with a  lot of contributors but I never had someone go to the lengths that Jamie did to produce a spread worthy of any nationally syndicated publication. She lined up a professional photographer to shoot the cover picture and inside pictures and designed a Valentine's Day scene with chocolate fondue and whimsical decorations. She was able to use her connections at local retail outlets and restaurants to secure clothes and Valentine's Day props to create a polished, stylish and fun finished product. Her story was well written, especially her recollections of a Valentine's Day in New York City that read like an episode from HBO's Sex and the City. Her eye for detail, fashion sense and ability to inspire     (with new ideas and frugal suggestions) is very keen, indeed! I look forward to being able to share Jamie's ideas and style with my readers in the future! -Jennifer Rodgers (Lehigh Valley Region-Lower Macungie Life-Emmaus Life-Upper Saucon & Center Valley Life- Forks Township Life-Hanover Township Life-Pleasant Valley Life-Hazelton Life)

As a professional portrait and commercial photographer I have worked with families, students, brides, models, athletes, executives and rockstars on a regular basis over the past 20 years. Great styling is an art and an imperative facet of making good photography great. One thing you really come to appreciate is the right styling of the faces and stories you portray with each job. Working with Jamie, that portion of the equation is unquestioned. Jamie brings her impeccable style to the shoot so I can focus on technical aspects of the work knowing the creative and aesthetic components are done with excellence incorporating flair and beauty. When Jamie calls to have me photograph her work, I know the job will look beautiful. I trust her styling and taste and know the imagery we create together will stimulate the senses and stay in the viewer's mind. Thanks to Jamie for making my job a litlte easier and for ensuring work that will please and entice clients. -Kellie Hoeke, Sweet Pea Studios

Dear Jamie,

A few months ago (Feb. 2014) while I was reading the NYT my husband pointed out there was an article he thought I'd really enjoy in the Express Times, Bridal Gown Vocab 101 by Jamie Gottschall, Indomitable Style. It turns out it was your debut as "STYLE" Columnist.  I did recognize your name from Facebook and had 'liked' your page early on and appreciated your blog.    My husband was right... I really enjoyed the article and it sparked an idea!  As you know, you received a complimentary letter immediately as I am a big believer in giving positive feedback.  Additionally, I liked your Style and wanted to be a potential resource for any future Communications you would share.    Your immediate response and expression of appreciation was refreshing.

Twice a year I conduct a class for the Northampton Community College.. "The Business of Weddings and Social Events" which I am happy to say is part of the Certificate in Meeting & Event Planning at cbi (center for business & industry), part of the Hospitality & Tourism programs.  The Business of Weddings and Social Events is from an entrepreneurial perspective and is actual work-life application.  Typically I include a panel discussion or invite an industry related associate to share their stories.  The "spark" from your article was to invite you to share your experiences and specifically speak to the how-tos for successful blogging.  Well, the rest as they say is history.   You came, they saw and we all were better for having the opportunity to meet and speak with you.
Thank you Jamie for generously giving of your time and sharing personal goals and dreams.    Without question, you have new followers I am certain.

With gratitude,

Catherine Gretta
LUXE, The Wedding Event





Nothing is ever boring with Jamie Gottschall. She transforms our sets with every visit and her creativity leads to very unique ideas on everything from fashion to food, parties, and more!- Eve Tannery, WFMZ Channel 69 News


Jamie has a natural eye for beauty, style and design. I've been to many of her parties -- showers, holiday gatherings, dinners -- and she always pulls out all the stops. There's always a theme, executed perfectly and seemingly effortlessly. But Jamie is an incredibly hard worker, adding to her innate sense of imagination and flair. To top it all off, she is the consummate host -- gracious and welcoming and making guests feel at ease. Though the setting may feel as if you're at the Ritz, the feeling is that you're at home. This all translates, naturally, into her fabulous blog -- bringing that sense of fashion and house fabulousness to a much larger audience. I've stolen many of Jamie's ideas and have been complimented again and again and again. Like the Tiffany boxes that she sometimes incorporates into her designs, Jamie has a true treasure hidden inside. Surface sparkle matched with a heart of gold. -Helene Stapinski, author/journalist

I have been a blog follower and Facebook follower of Jamie for about two years.  I enjoy reading her blogs and snippets. Her writing not only catches your eyes, but is also very entertaining.  Her blog, IndomitableStyle is by far one of the best blogs on the web.  There is no other blog you can go to read about fashion, health, and beauty all in one place.  My lifestyle is very fast paced, so being able to get my dose of beauty, fashion, and fitness all in one place is top priority.  In addition, I always take something away from her blogs.  Whether it is a new recipe, a decorative idea for the holidays, or a fitness tip….I always take an idea from her page and put it to good use.  For instance, I made her Super Bowl buffalo chicken hummus recipe and the crowd at my house went wild! Keep the articles, snippets, and blogs coming Jamie…..love all of your advice, ideas, and input on all things important:  Fashion, Beauty, and Fitness! --Leslie

D'Agostino

I first met Jamie when we arrived at her home to shoot her kitchen for my book, Country French Kitchens. As you can imagine, I scouted a lot of kitchens—and I mean a lot—in my research for the book. I curated from amongst dozens of images sent to me by well-intentioned designers as well asthose kitchens which I had stumbled upon myself. Hers came recommended to me, and wow! Werewe thrilled to see what a wonderfully unique and imaginative area she had created for her family. I felt like Alice walking into Wonderland: colorful candies stored in beautiful apothecary jars, brown and pink and white accessories everywhere, linens and china and tablescapes coordinated around her theme of French frilly fun. Her kitchen is refreshing. Absolutely Charming. Simply Delightful. Jamie has a keen sense of design, of proportion and balance and color. She is to be commended for throwing herself out there, using her unique sense of style for our benefit. Kudos! -Carolina Fernandez, Author Country French Kitchens

I've known Jaime for many years and am more and more amazed at how she doesn't ever let anything get in the way of her success (personal and public).
