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…

Student Fashion: Oversized Office Look

by Jessica Braun Gervais | November 13th, 2014

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…

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

by Jessica Braun Gervais | October 15th, 2014

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…

Student Fashion: Inspired By Lorelai Gilmore

by Jessica Braun Gervais | October 9th, 2014

In case you haven’t heard, Gilmore Girls is on Netflix! And in case you haven’t experienced the coffee-driven,  quick-witted, freakishly close mother-daughter duo of Lorelai and Rory Gilmore, I’d suggest you block out your weekends for awhile and make a standing date with your Netflix account. Not only does this show exhibit powerful women in… Read more…

Student Fashion: Wearing White at Work

by Jessica Braun Gervais | September 11th, 2014

We’ve all heard the fashion faux pas before: no white after Labor Day! But rules are meant to be broken and those that cannot be broken, have exceptions. Labor Day marks the unofficial end of summer, but that doesn’t mean we have to dive into the dreariness that often comes along with fall and winter…. Read more…

Today’s Coveted Working Look: Timbuk2 Walker Laptop Backpack

by Emma Klug | September 10th, 2014

When I was a kid, getting a cool new backpack was always one of the main highlights of back to school shopping for me. Sure, I loved picking out my first day of school outfit and finding out which class I was in, but I knew that the chance for true reinvention presented itself in… Read more…
