Are you looking for unique styles? Fashion that is unreal and affordable?
Welcome to ShopAKIRA, where I have found shoes, accessories and clothing pieces that are thrilling, stylish and fashionable! If you live in the Chicago area, I am so jealous that you have over 20+ AKIRA stores to choose from in person! I don’t live in Chicago, but I can get the same hott styles when I shop online at shopAKIRA.com
In fact, I did. I picked out a few pieces from their collection and cannot wait to tell you about them! First, I want to mention, that I am not even covering the surface of their unique items, and you’ll see that when you browse their site. And secondly, I am not a risk taker in fashion. As much as I want to be, I am not… so these are some of their more casual items… you HAVE to check them out for their more outrageous and fun looks. I browsed for hours, you will too!
First Feature: Chiffon Overlay Peplum Dress
This dress is stunning. It’s delicate chiffon overlay drapes over a black knit tube dress. The thick zipper inside the keyhole back gives this dress a sassy and bold touch. This dress is sleeveless and short – it would be ideal for a party or nice date night evening. I am pretty hip-y and was worried about the tight knit skirt, but to my surprise, I was excited to feel comfortable and sexy in it. I have the peplum to thank for that – peplum is the overhanging skirt that ruffles at the waist line – a great cut for my body.
– 100% Polyester
– 32 1/2" from shoulder to hem
– Hand Wash Cold
– Made in U.S.A.
The website model is US 2-4 | height 5′ 11" | Bust: 34" | Waist: 24.5" | Hips: 35". She is wearing a size small. As for me, I got the medium and it is a good fit. I found the sizing for this dress to be true to size.
This dress comes in latte/black and sizes small, medium, large. It is $39.90 at ShopAKIRA.com
The ShopAKIRA ‘Kayla’ Bag is adorable and just the right size. It can be used like a clutch (no straps) or you can clasp on the leather strap on the back to be worn around your shoulder or across your body – because it is adjustable. I love the different ways to wear this purse – keep it classy or casual.
The bag is a pretty pinkish-red "poppy" color. The outside is micro suede, with leather edging and corners. The closure is a magnetic snap flap and then a zipper inside. My items are very secure in this bag! The interior lining is smooth and a perfect fit for my tablet. there are two storage pockets on the inside, great for the cell phone, lip gloss and keys.
– Removable/Adjustable shoulder strap included
– Approx. dimensions: 9"L x 14"W
– All man-made materials
THIRD FEATURE: Basic Long Tube
I can’t get enough of the basics from ShopAKIRA. They have tube tops, lace tube bra, bandeau, lace half cami bra, three quarter sleeve seamless dress, ribbed tank dress and so many more. Basics are well.. basics… but totally necessary pieces in any wardrobe. I can’t wait to get dozens of them from ShopAKIRA. They are so handy for layering!!!
The awesome long tube comes in sapphire, black, metal gray, nude and white. It is great under lace, see-through items, tunics and more. It is long enough to be used under a dress, paired with a leather jacket or with jeans. I love this stretchy, comfortable and made in USA long tube piece.
The Basic Long Tube as well as other basic piece can be found at ShopAKIRA.com.
FOURTH FEATURE: Laser Cut Contrast Sheath Dress
This is my first time experiencing laser cut clothing pieces. Thanks to ShopAKIRA I am discovering a love for the contrasting cut and look of the laser. This sleeveless dress has won me over. I will definitely be seen wearing more laser cut items in the future – ShopAKIRA has a fun selection of laser cut shirts and more.
The dress contrasts the outside Coral color with the inside Mint layer. It is a flattering front scoop neck, empire waist, and has an invisible side zipper with hook-and-eye closure. This was my hubby’s favorite of the two dresses.
If it helps: The model on ShopAKIRA is wearing the small. Her sizes are US Size 0-2 | Height: 5′ 6" | Bust: 33" | Waist: 26" | Hips: 35". I am wearing the medium and the fit is right on.
This dress comes in sizes small, medium, large in the color Coral/Mint color only. It can be found for $38.90 at ShopAKIRA.com
