3 Ways to Style: Satin Slip Dress

I’ve always loved the look of a simple satin slip dress but it has taken me a while to find the right one. A lot of them are pretty but they’re not versatile enough. I really liked this A&F Satin Slip Dress when I came across it. The shape of the neckline is flattering with a slit on the side. The satin material is also great quality that’s double layered. I bought both the black pattern as well as the light coral in size small regular. I think I could have done the petite but it was sold out and I wasn’t sure whether the slit would be higher than it already is in the regular. My torso is long so I thought for this style, the regular would work best. Also, something to note is that there’s no zipper so I’d take that into consideration when buying the dress although I’m mostly a size small at A&F. It’s currently on sale from $99 to $45 + 25% off (was 15% off but now it’s an even better deal!). Such a great price for the quality that you’re getting. I styled this dress in 3 different ways to show how versatile it is.

Vegan Leather Work Bag

Right before COVID19 hit, my work bag started to tear on the base. It’s a large tote with thin leather straps that I could throw over my shoulders. Even though it was strong and sturdy, I’ve always had a bad habit of overpack my bags. The heaviness started to wear out the bag. I’ve had it for quite some time now so I was due for a new one!

What I was looking for was something that is versatile, simple, and stylish that didn’t look like a “work” bag, lightweight with different ways you can carry the bag. Even though I’m currently working from home in our state of self-isolation and don’t need to get a work bag yet, but thought I’d started the hunt. To my surprise, I quickly found one that I really liked. 

ai was started by a mom with her 3 daughters. It’s based in Toronto and all products are handmade in Seoul, South Korea. I also have 2 sisters and the 3 of us all love fashion. One of my sisters and I lived in Seoul for a bit after we graduated from fashion school at Ryerson. We had such an amazing time there and made so many great memories. In a way, I feel very connected with the brand. I also love supporting local businesses so I was happy when I discovered ai Toronto Seoul.

First of all, I love that this bag is vegan leather and it’s PETA-approved. The colour and texture of the bag are beautiful. It’s super versatile and can be worn in 3 different ways with the 2 detachable straps that come with the bag.
