Ladies of Castor & Pollux - Lady no. 4

Welcome to the fourth installment of The Ladies of Castor & Pollux.

Jessica Resler walked through the door when we threw a party for close friend and talented designer Nathan McCarthy earlier this year. Immediately you realize Jessica rocks some outrageous outfits, an outsize personality, and non-stop business acumen. She’s the branding/retail strategy wiz behind muffin cupcake and has been helping us further define our ideas here at C&P. She’s the perfect combination of smarts and creativity and you know we love and admire that!

Costa Rica! My boyfriend and I traveled to the Osa Peninsula in January and it was the most brilliant vacation ever!

We’re going back this December to pay back the German lady who loaned us $100 after the robbery.

Favorite TV show?

TV is for the content. I have too many unfulfilled desires to commit to weekly programming.

A 6 foot steel sculpture in the shape of a bow that my boyfriend had commissioned from artist Kim Maloney, as a Christmas gift. It’s inspired by my neck tattoo
