Dalem pants- are they worth it? Such a splurge.

Answers (1)

YES! We worked hard to make these the absolute definition of a leather pant- each detail is such perfection. The leather is buttery soft and stretchy, and the gold hardware adds a little extra. We looked, you can’t find a better pair anywhere at any price!

August 07, 2018

Love the Kimia fabric! What else do you make in it?

Answers (1)

That’s our super plushy springy tencel/cotton blend. We custom make it and it’s perfection. Tencel is our favorite! Environmentally friendly and feels like a dream. If you search ‘tencel’ all the styles will come up- there’s a few!

What kind of silk do you use? It’s so pretty!

Answers (1)

Thank you 💕 Generally we use a thick 30mm silk charmeuse. Charmeuse is the soft shiny silk, and we treat it for added softness. This makes it so luxurious, and totally worth it. We often double layer it (like the Liska), and like an unfinished hem to keep it a little undone.

What would you wear under the Nique dress? Bra friendly?

Answers (1)

We’d go without or wear a sticky bra. The back dips low, so it’s not strapless bra friendly. You could also fashion tape the cowl neck if you’re worried, but it stays in place pretty well.

help me decide between the tsuki necklace or the alva please!

Answers (1)

Tsuki adds a little more glimmer and texture and is generally more visible, Alva is perfect if you want something so so delicate.

I have a sizing question. I’m about to buy my 2nd zillah dress I’m pretty petite at 5’3 and have an hourglass body type 35-25-35, I’m usually a small or an xs depending on the brand.I have the black zillah in a size s and while i love the slightly oversized fit I do kind of wish it was more fitted in the chest area. However I notice your clothing tends to be designed towards a smaller bust and I have a pretty decent sized chest lol. Do you think the xs would be too tight?

Answers (1)

Having multiple Zillahs is the best ✨ I think with a 35″ bust the xs would be too small even with the oversized fit!

How do I keep my necklace from tarnishing?

Answers (1)

Please avoid contact with liquids and creams when wearing your AYAI gold filled or gold plated jewelry, especially household chemicals. Store your jewelry only when dry. Keeping your gold filled or gold plated jewelry as dry as possible will extend the life of its color and sparkle.

Why do your sizes only go up to medium?

Answers (1)

We are working on making our styles in a wider range of sizes, to account for every body type ❤️ In the past, the demand for smaller sizes always outweighed the larger and as a small business we did our best to accommodate this.

August 07, 2018

Why do certain styles never get restocked?

Answers (1)

We have discontinued a handful of older styles to place more priority on production and design of new styles!

Size Guide

We fit from an extra small and grade up from there so our sizing is naturally skewed towards smaller sizes. For wovens we recommend buying true to size while we recommend sizing up for some of our body-con knits.

We have a great staff here at ARE YOU AM I ready to meet with you at our downtown loft space or work with you over email/phone to help you find the perfect fit. If you have any questions about what pieces would work best on you or which size works best for your body type, don't hesitate to reach out, that's why we're here!
