I wore this dress to one of my birthday dinners and have been finding all sorts of ways to wear it ever since. You can tell from the texture it’s really lightweight and being satin makes it even more airy, both exactly what I need in this stiff August heat. ? Shoutout to my best friend for getting me these sunglasses at a street market. He bought a pair for my birthday which another one of my friends inadvertently sat on and broke that same night, I was absolutely traumatized.

Wearing an Asos dress (sold out- this), Nasty Gal platforms (sold out – these), shades by Scott.

They can transform a summer dress into a fall outfit in the blink of an eye. But as we know all too well, just as you arrive to your favorite restaurant on date night, you glance down to find a run the length of the Great Wall of China down the back of your calf. If you don’t want this disaster to happen again, you better make room in the freezer. Yes, that’s right – freezing your tights can protect them from getting runs. It sounds crazy, but hear me out: The next time you buy a new pair (and before you wear them), run them under water until they’re slightly damp (don’t completely soak them). Then place them in a plastic bag and freeze overnight. Take them out and give them a day to defrost and thaw out. The best part? You…
