Drape yourself in beyond elegant Lilim. A wide and dramatic band wraps around the body loosely and a corset locks you in with laces up the back and a busk at center front allows for easy on/off.

Girls that get it: My Life As Eva

April 11, 2017

Eva is a fashion, lifestyle and comedy vlogger. Better known as MyLifeAsEva. She is just as funny and likable in real life, as we found out when she stopped by our DTLA Loft to shop and hang out.

 

WHAT AYAI PIECE CAN YOU NOT LIVE WITHOUT? 

The Tiiu top! It goes with every outfit.

 

WHAT IS YOUR PERFECT AYAI OUTFIT FOR COACHELLA?

Definitely the breezy Daphna dress with tons of jewelry! Its moveable and will keep me cool in the hot sun.

 

FAVORITE FASHION CITY?

New York! I am always inspired to dress fashionably when I'm there. 

 

FAVORITE IG ACCOUNT?

I love @gypsea_lust because she's this super rad Australian girl that lets her magical photos speak for themselves.

 

WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO RIGHT NOW?

I love Halsey's new song Now or Never.

CURRENT GIRL CRUSH?

Not to be cheesy, but Rumi Neely's aesthetic will always keep me coming back for more IG stalk sessions.

 

LATEST BEAUTY DISCOVERY?

 Wearing cool wigs to change up your look quickly! 

 

BEST PIECE OF FASHION ADVICE YOU'VE EVER RECEIVED?

Wear whatever you want and don't let anyone hold you back from looking and feeling your best.  

 

BEST PIECE OF FASHION ADIVCE YOU'VE EVER GIVEN?

 If you don't feel good in it, you won't look good in it. Don't wear anything that doesn't make you feel absolutely radiant in it!

 

ONE THING PEOPLE WOULD BE SURPRISED TO KNOW ABOUT YOU?

I used to be a competitive dancer and am trained in all dance styles!

 

LAST PURCHASE?

I've recently started working out again, so I bought a kettle bell for my squats I do in the kitchen while watching Say Yes To The Dress haha!

Girls That Get It: Sonya Esman

April 03, 2017

Sonya came by our DTLA loft for some shopping, and we found out that she's as chill as she is gorgeous.  We took the opportunity to ask her a few important questions...

 

WHAT AYAI PIECE CAN YOU NOT LIVE WITHOUT?

I wear my new strike hoodie & leggings way more than I would like to admit. I literally ran into CVS to change into the set the day I got it haha. Clothing softer than your bed is honestly one of the best things on Earth.

 

WHAT IS YOUR PERFECT AYAI FESTIVAL OUTFIT?

Without a doubt- the siqi leather lace up shorts are coming with me to coachella! The Stelle top would also be so stunning in the desert. I'd also go heavy with the accessories and layer the jace chain chocker, the binx, and the tsuki. And I'd bring my lighter case ;)

WHO IS YOUR STYLE INSPIRATION?

I think my style more so comes from my dreams of- and working towards of the woman I want to become. It's mood-dependent, a constant evolution, a metamorphosis, if you will. 

 

FAVORITE FASHION CITY?

Every city has a culture and style that I get inspiration from in some way or another. The street style in Soho, New York is always ridiculously creative and cool; but my favorite fashion city is probably Seoul, South Korea. I think South Korean fashion is an impeccable mix of vintage classics and street style trends. 

 

WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO RIGHT NOW?

SO much! I live in headphones, and am always looking for new songs, and update my soundcloud every day.  https://soundcloud.com/sonya-esman

FAVORITE INSTAGRAM ACCOUNT?

Cate Underwood (@undervoodoo) has the most beautiful artistic aesthetic, which is a huge inspiration to me. Maya Stepper (@mayastepper) is also such a joy, and I love to watch her grow. @fashion_viadi and @gildaambrosio are my go-to for style inspiration and new ideas.

 

CURRENT GIRL CRUSH?

Again, Maya Stepper!

 

LATEST BEAUTY DISCOVERY?

The RMS living luminizer is the best highlighter I've ever layed my hands on. It's natural, coconut oil based, and doesn't look fake or shimmery at all.

 

LAST PURCHASE?

I bought myself a new polaroid camera an hour ago! (polaroid sx-70) All my inexpensive polaroid cameras broke in my luggage when travelling, so I got one that's a little more professional... sans the plastic. 

BEST PIECE OF FASHION ADVICE YOU'VE EVER RECEIVED?

Burn your bra.

 

BEST PIECE OF FASHION ADVICE YOU'VE EVER GIVEN?

Sunglasses- always. They're like an accessory to the face and can make you look like a million dollars.

 

ONE THING PEOPLE WOULD BE SURPRISED TO KNOW ABOUT YOU

Everybody is always surprised to find out that I know literally zero movies or tv shows. I usually tell people I just meet to not even bother with asking me "have you seen ___ movie?" because the answer is always no. Always. I get bored SO quickly, and prefer to spend my time creating something of my own.

OFF SET WITH DOINA

March 16, 2017

DESCRIBE YOUR PERFECT DAY IN LONDON.

Urgh, no rain and especially no wind. Wine and pizza with my boyfriend on our balcony.

 

WHAT KIND OF CAT WOULD YOU BE?

The one that would scratch you if you don't give her food!

 

WHAT ITEMS DO YOU SAVE ON, AND THEN WHAT DO YOU SPLURGE ON?

Shoes are my weakness, I absolutely hate bad quality shoes so will always prefer to invest in good quality pricy shoes. Also coats, an amazing quality coat is the one clothing item I can spend A LOT on. Tops, jeans, everything casual i normally don't spend much on. 

 

ONE THING PEOPLE WOULD BE SURPRISED TO KNOW ABOUT YOU:

I eat chalk? It's probably the weirdest thing, but I it has a very intense influence on me, kinda like fresh newspaper smell. I remember being in school and sneakily stealing pieces of chalk when none else was around.

I was the tallest in my class... and in all the other classes of my grade haha. I was quite shy and often bullied, studying 24h was my only escape from that haha.

The chokers! Followed by the Kimia bodysuit in black.
