Despite their attention-grabbing advertisements, I never really “got” the hype behind American Apparel, therefore I’ve never shopped there. But this weekend, out on a shopping trip in SoHo with my sister who just had to have a pair of the slit jersey leggings, I finally made my way in, and liked what I saw. Sure American Apparel is full of basics like tees, tanks and leggings that are just slightly overhyped, but there were plenty of other precious gem that I wanted to take home with me. One of which was the American Apparel Le Sac Dress, which I bought, in magenta.
The dress was quite a find – it’s actually six dresses in one – possibly more if you’re feeling creative, and recessionly-priced at $38. You can wear it a variety of ways depending on your mood or the occasion – one-shoulder and suspender style are my faves – and it’s one size fits all so any gal, small to large and anywhere in-between, can rock it. You can play dress up with one of American Apparel’s many accessories, like Le String or add your own favorite dressing. Whatever you choose, this dress, (or dresses) is a summer must-have.
