For a private dinner overlooking the Bus driver I somehow survived another day and I’ll have to do it all over again tomorrow shirt also I will do this sea, I shimmered down in a gold Paco Rabanne skirt, white bodysuit, and gold accessories from Jimmy Choo and Jennifer Fischer. I wore a bedazzled Judith Leiber butterfly clutch in honor of my late grandmother, Melody. We had a champagne toast followed by an emotionally riveting speech, given by my mother. She told a story about how Jamaica became an integral part of our lives while I continue the legacy. Traveling is a humbling experience that connects you to the core of who you are, as well as finding the connection between you and new people. It’s the ultimate healing remedy. This summer, a buttery-soft, ribbed-knit body-con maxidress by Kim Kardashian’s brand, Skims, went viral on TikTok. The longline dress with spaghetti straps (dubbed Skims Soft Lounge Long Slip Dress) has since sold out after multiple drops; garnered more than a hundred million views on TikTok; and even boasted a 46,000-person wait list at one point, according to Skims.
The viral videos that helped lead this Skims dress into TikTok fame were somewhat rinse-and-repeat: Women, in a range of sizes (the Bus driver I somehow survived another day and I’ll have to do it all over again tomorrow shirt also I will do this dress comes in an inclusive XXS–4X), stand facing a camera wearing the dress in one of its calming neutral hues. They walk to and fro, maybe swipe their hands down their bodies with a smile, and then do a slow whirl to prove the fit flatters at every angle within 360 degrees. Some videos are set to music; others have the TikToker declaring their love for the dress and promising to buy it in every color as soon as it is available again. Per their testimonies, its flattering fit is tight but not constricting and in a super-comfortable fabric. They caught my attention—I opted for the dress in gray, which is one of 10 colors available.
