Since I'll be entering law school this September, I've dedicated this summer to totally revamping a huge part of my wardrobe to a more "sophisticated style". In addition, I've recently received an email from administration which lays out about five "formal" events throughout the year- each of them with a very specific dress code. ie. "black and white, formal" "business attire, casual" Either way, I've basically been freaking out and frantically been trying to gather all the necessary pieces to make my wardrobe law school ready.

That being said, lets turn our attention to a Black and White affair, set to take place in October. AND I've found the MOST perfect dresses for this event too- only one catch- they're all from Simply Be- which DOESN'T ship to Canada! Why do retailers torture us this way? ): Simply Be (which operates to serve the UK and USA) offers trendy and affordable womens clothing available online, but they have yet to do offer their services to my homeland. SADLIFE.

For now, I'll covet Simply Be's offerings from afar and hope that somehow I'll be able to get my hands on these beauties!

Until next time,

Orange You Glad.

I don't know if I've mentioned this before...but I hate summer. I really do. Nothing about it makes me happy and its just plain irritating. That being said, I really struggle to find looks that I enjoy wearing without melting from heat- but as a "fashionista" I need to try my best.
I think I huge hindrance to my being able to dress appropriately in the summer is the fact that culturally, I need to remain somewhat conservative- ie. I'm not allowed to show my legs. So I turn to really breathable but high quality tights that also (conveniently) serve as shapewear for when I'm wearing body-hugging looks. Tights also serve as a great alternative to avoid dreaded summer chaffing (haha). Tights I typically wear are by the brand Sculptz,which manufacture ladies shapewear and control top tights which I personally buy at The Bay.
I hope your summer is treating you better than mine is treating me -______-
