This Sonia Rykiel black ruffled crepe gown walks the line between dress and lingerie, making high-waisted briefs the perfect accessory. We’re obsessed with the delicate sheer panels and variety of textures. Where would…

How to Fake Looking Awake After Midterms: An Eighth Week Guide

Last week was no cake walk. If you can relate, you were probably up until 4 am writing that final paragraph, cramming for that midterm, and maybe even thinking in your sleepless state, “Hey, if I stay up 2 more hours I’ll go to cardio kickboxing!” Cue collapsing on your bed.
