Putting their money where they live: Sister, Sister Feature 1 of 2

Being a part of a BIG family looks to come easy to Jessica Crosbie Cicero and Jordin Crosbie. When getting to know these two even better than we already do - they are loyal SoSis supporters - we quickly learned how many siblings they had in addition to these two. 

Big families come with their challenges we are sure, but also the sheer number of seats you're able to fill around a table is sometimes something we are envious of. 

Grab your coffee and read a little more about this sister, sister pair who brighten our SoSis days every time they walk into our doors. 

Every year for our birthday month, we collaborate with sisters around us to learn from them and tune into their different styles and personalities. As part one of our annual, Sista, Sista series, we're introducing you to Jessica and Jordin. Get to know them, shop their looks and fall in love with their fun / funny words of wisdom. 


Meet Jessica: 

Jessica Cicero is a busy wife, Mom and 15-year elementary school teacher. She lives in Brusly with her husband of 17 years, Nick, and their three boys - Grant (12), Dean (10) and Jude (7). 

Here's our fun interview with Jessica....

  • If you could tell your 18-year-old self one thing, what would it be?
    1. You picked the perfect guy.
    2. Positivity is infectious and happiness is a choice.
    3. Wear sunscreen daily and quit plucking your eyebrows.
    4. You have a voice, don’t be afraid to use it.
  • What does shopping small mean to you?

    Shopping small means supporting families that are living their dreams. These businesses support our community and put their heart and soul into their work. Additionally, excellent customer service is always something I look forward to. I know shopping small directly impacts my neighbors.

  • What are some of your favorite small businesses?

    Mimosa Handcrafted
    Local boutiques including SoSis, Mingle and Studio Too
    Queen of Sparkles
    Nutrition West
    Sassy Nails

  • What is one thing your Mama told you growing up that you think of even today?

    I’d say one thing my Mom always told us was “yes.” I don't remember ever being told we didn't have time or money to try an activity. My parents made it happen, and then made sure they were there to support us. I appreciate the fact that my parents sacrificed so much of their time and resources for my sisters and I. I try to be that way with my own kids. I support them fully and follow their lead when it comes to their goals.

  • Describe your style.

    My style depends on the day, but I’m always in a great pair of shoes. At home, I wear a lot of athleisure because I’m running the roads with my kids. When I am at work, I’m either on my feet or on the floor with the kids, so I like to wear things that are cute, but comfortable. I like a nice pair jeans with a SoSis tee or Queen of Sparkles top. I also love a maxi skirt or long dress. Bold colors and patterns make me happy. I love how a good outfit can boost my mood.

Meet Jordin: 

Jordin Crosbie is an amazing aunt to 13 sweet kiddos. She is a data analyst / logistics coordinator at Olin in Plaquemine and a resident of Plaquemine. 

Here's our fun interview with Jordin....

  • If you could tell your 18-year-old self one thing, what would it be?

    You're not the mistakes you make and you're not the only one who makes them. Treat yourself the way you treat your nieces. 

  • What does shopping small mean to you?

    Shopping small is supporting the community and knowing where your money is going.

  • What are a few of your favorite small businesses?

    SoSis, Samantha Morgan, Uncle Johnny's, Z Artista Designs, Rene Bosworth Hair

  • What is one thing your Mama told you growing up that you think of even today?

    I've always got your back.

  • Describe your style.

    Very simple...jeans and a tank. Not because I don't like fashion, I just don't know what looks good when paired together. 


We truly enjoyed getting to know you and see your styles come together perfectly! Thank you for helping us celebrate nine years in business! LYLAS!
