Meet Cora Rasp This personal stylist and owner of Coriander, a brick and mortar, turned web shop, has a down-to-earth take on fashion. “I’m a jeans and t-shirt kind of girl, as much as I love fashion.” she said. “If you’re hesitant about fashion, then shop with someone who isn’t. Or if you aren’t hesitant, bring someone who is to balance you out.” Have a fashion emergency? She wants to help. We all buy clothes we love but still struggle with turning individual pieces into a complete outfit. “I just want to help them refine it and make them feel more confident.” In November, shop her reinvented and one-of-a-kind finds at Until then, catch up with Cora at
