Today’s Coveted Working Look: Rockport Total Motion Herringbone Boot

by Jessica Braun Gervais | November 21st, 2014

As much as I love the sky-high shoe art of Manolo Blahnik and Jimmy Choo, they aren’t the most practical of shoe choices for a student on a budget.  They also aren’t the best option for hiking miles across city streets filled with sleet and slush.  So as the winter winds begin to blow between… Read more…

Student Fashion: Pack Your Totes

by Jessica Braun Gervais | November 18th, 2014

It’s not easy to find an appropriate option for carrying daily essentials.   Purses are too small and backpacks feel inferior, probably because they are designed for hiking or school children. While some backpacks do a decent job balancing style and convenience, such as the Timbuk2 Walker Laptop Backpack or the Nomad by Tess Johnson, I… Read more…

I am a firm believer that with enough creativity and careful planning, any trend can be incorporated into something office appropriate.  I am also  a firm believer in comfort, especially when at work.  For me, nothing says “comfort” better than being swallowed by my favorite sweaters, shirts and pants. When incorporating the oversized look into… Read more…

Student Fashion: The A-Line Skirt

by Jessica Braun Gervais | November 11th, 2014

Skirts and I are not the best of friends, but I still love them.  They are beautiful and non-restrictive, but with long legs and a curvy bottom, I have a hard time finding a flattering look.  Minis and maxis are too short; pencils are too tight; and tutus and bubble skirts should be restricted to… Read more…

Jackets; they are warm, cozy, and quiet necessary in the brutal Midwest winters, but they are not always the most stylish of apparel pieces.  So when I find a chic fashion-forward jacket, such as the Ruffle Twill Parka Jacket from White House Black Market I can’t help but fall in love.

Designer Profile: Soul Carrier

by Jessica Braun Gervais | October 16th, 2014

I hate commuting. Three to five days a week, I pack an overstuffed bag (sometimes two) and embark on the two hour journey from Wisconsin to Chicago.  Being away from my home for almost ten hours a day forces me to stuff my life into a purse, and I know I’m not alone.  I see… Read more…

Student Fashion: Pink for a Cause

As I am sure most of you know, October is breast cancer awareness month.  While there are many great ways to get involved with the cause, such as donating, fundraising and volunteering, one of the simplest ways to show support for the millions of women and men, who have suffered from breast cancer is to… Read more…
