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.
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.
