Fore Front Fashion with Laura Serino

A biochemist student that knows fashion should be fun

I always talk about how fashion should be fun and never taken too seriously. This Portland resident, who is currently enrolled at USM as a biochemist major and who also works at Trader Joe’s, gets it. She handles the elements of “fun” without being overly kitschy. I loved her comic book skirt, which she found on etsy. And as a former dachsund owner, this Fred Flare bag might just have to replace my current Boat & Tote. I guess smart girls really do finish first!
