by Rachel Yeomans | March 9th, 2015

Thank you all so much for your support over these past 6 years (It’s been 6 years! WOW!). However the one thing I don’t want to be is a sit-com that just won’t end. I am moving on from The Working Wardrobe and am launching a new venture that I am extremely excited about and that… Read more…

Today’s Coveted Working Look: J.Crew Ski Sweater

by Emma Klug | December 10th, 2014

Holiday fashion typically elicits images of a red and green color palette, sparkle and shine, elegant fabrics and silhouettes reserved for a classy night out. Yet, fashion doesn’t always have to be so predictable. Whether you like it or not, ugly holiday sweaters are also a staple of this season. With their mismatched prints, strange… Read more…

As San Francisco turns a bit more into the wintery wetland I recognize (goodbye, oddly warm weather and hello, foggy grey mist and rain!), I find myself turning to classic cold weather pieces that are chic, comfortable, and warm.

Tagged as: , ,

The weather has already gotten extremely chilly here in Chicago. There’s already been a few days where I’ve woken up in the morning, frozen from head to toe, wishing I could lay in bed, wrapped in my covers, forever.

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…

Today’s Coveted Working Look: Old Navy Jacquard 3/4-Sleeved Dresses

by Anne Dreshfield | November 18th, 2014

Don’t you just love when you stumble on a pleasant surprise in a story? I headed to Old Navy today to return a few items I’d bought online and didn’t fit, and decided to take a spin around the store.
