I can’t be the only one who buys clothes and completely forgets about them right?! Until one miraculous day, you’re browsing through your clothes with the ever so common phrase ‘I have nothing to wear’ and then you suddenly realize that these two items actually make a cute fit!
That is literally the story of these two pieces. You guys probably saw this bodysuit on every (what’s the female version of ‘Tom, Dick and Harry? *strokes chin*) fashion blogger back in 2016. I know I did! Then I rushed to Zara during my lunch break to rifle through the racks until I found it…then it sat in my closet like all my other abandoned clothes with tags on. Well, in Toronto it finally got to see the sun!
Then I have the best story about these trousers too! I was on one of my many escapades to London in March 2016 when I realized that AQAQ were having a sample sale. Now if you have been following my Instagram for a while, you may recall the iconic bright orange dress I wore for my 21st birthday. Since then, I have been such a huge fan of AQAQ and their futuristic silhouettes and high quality materials. Anyway, I digress.
So I’m getting on the Tube (ahh I miss England!) to Brick Lane, make my way to the warehouse only to be told the sale will only be starting the day after. Bearing in mind my train back home was that evening, as you can imagine I was devastated. I told the staff who were in the middle of unpacking boxes and setting up the pricing of the items and they told me that if I waited for an hour, they could let me shop! Honestly I felt like a celebrity getting exclusive access and the first choice of all the products for wayyyy discounted prices. I believe these were originally $120 (read in pounds, my keyboard has no pound sign) and I think I got them for $25! Major love for AQAQ staff always and forever now. Make sure you subscribe to their newsletter to find out about any other sample sales they may be having.
The trousers are a great fit and make your bum look super peachy so as you can tell I’m a huge fan. Wide leg trousers have really grown on me!
Unfortunately as both of these items are no longer available, I had a browse for you guys to find something similar if you wanted to recreate this look, please see below!
