Gem presents one standout piece. Whether it's a jacket, necklace, or handbag, it's on our have-to-have list.
What: Phoenix-based fashion designer Jennifer Paige Boonlorn makes bags for women who carry their lives around with them -- hence her brand's name, Soul Carrier.
Made from re-purposed and up-cycled materials, our favorite Soul Carrier style is the Kelly Beth Weekender, a large tote with vegan leather trim that's spacious enough to fit everything we'd need for a quick getaway. Who says road tripping can't be stylish?
