Aimee Song just released a stunning collection exclusively at Revolve and this collection is so meaningful to me. I’ve followed Aimee for years now, and she’s one of the realest, most hard-working, humble bloggers I’ve followed. To me she is what it means to be an influencer, and I was so excited to support her by grabbing a couple things. Take a look at what I got…
I have this weird attachment to certain things, especially clothes. It has a lot to do with getting rid of most of my mom’s things after she died and completely regretting it a few years later. She just had SO MUCH STUFF that during the time, fueled by sadness and anger, I didn’t want to think about it so I only ended up keeping four or five things that I cherish now.
I realize this might not be a great time to write about Song of Style seeing that a lot of it is sold out, but I wanted to let you guys in on how I feel while the collection is new and fresh! This collection had the best marketing campaign. Aimee is so creative and so damn cute, it made every Instagram post and story so enjoyable to follow, and never felt like it was too pushy or overdone. I envy her vision with her content. When she started revealing the collection I knew I needed the citrus print specifically the two-toned weila top which sold out in FIVE MINUTES. I was late to work just because I was shopping in bed because I didn’t want to regret waiting until I got to work.
This collection is slightly expensive, but I know it’s because Aimee didn’t want to skimp on quality. I know a lot of people that are not used to paying over $100 for a top, if you’re used to that then it’s about the same price as most brands on Revolve. If you aren’t just remember that you pay for quality, and quality lasts. How many Forever 21 shirts have you gone through? Same. That’s why I switched to investing in pieces instead of buying in bulk. I don’t mind paying $200 for a dress if I can feel the quality and know that I’ll wear it for years.
I ended up getting three pieces – the isla midi dress, kroy blazer, and jennica top. My favorite part about this collection is that it makes me want to step out of my comfort zone a little bit. I never wear dresses, my mom used to tell me that she couldn’t get me in a dress past 2 years old. I’m also not the most confident with my body (for one, I have a huge insecurity with my arms,) but this makes me feel like I can experiment with styles and allow myself room to express myself through different styles. I saw the jennica top on someone in one of Revolve’s Instagram stories and I couldn’t stop thinking about it. I would have never chose it on my own, but I love it! That in itself makes me want to try every piece because who knows what I’ll fall in love with.
Isla Midi Dress | $198
The color of this dress is everything, it seriously looks amazing on any skin tone. It’s heavier than I expected so you can really feel the quality, and it has a nice slit in the middle that makes it easy to sit without showing any of your lady bits.
I have trouble having this fit me perfectly honestly. I have long legs, big hips, a somewhat short torso, and what I think are some slightly wide shoulders. I don’t ever feel really feminine in my body for those reasons. My hips make it hard to ever get a size small in dresses even though I have zero boobs and when I order anything bigger than a small I have major sagging above my hips. This is one of the first dresses that I haven’t had unmanageable sagging. I have another dress from Revolve that I can only wear with a tee shirt because the sagging is so bad. I’m not saying the sagging is gone completely, but I can adjust the straps to fit better up top and the stitching under my boobs isn’t as defined so it doesn’t look as weird. I can wear this without constantly thinking about the fact that my chest looks weird, that’s a huge plus.
One of my favorite parts of this are the buttons! I love the tortoise shell coloring, they aren’t too small and don’t feel flimsy and match the burnt sienna color of the dress beautifully. You could dress this up with accessories and a heel or casually wear this with sandals and a ponytail. It’s a win-win and a perfect dress for summer. Got a graduation party or a bridal shower to go to? This is your dress.
Kroy Blazer | $228
I got a size Medium in this and it’s a little big, but I feel like if I got a small it would’ve been too small. Again, that’s kind of a me problem, that’s the way a lot of things fit for me. The length is nice, a little long, but I love the long, slightly baggy look for this. I wanted to be able to wear this with a tank top or white tee and high-waisted pants and feel feminine and masculine at the same time. The quality is amazing, and I’m not even mad at the fact that it has shoulder pads. Yes, you heard it… shoulder pads, but super flattering even for my wide shoulders!
Jennica Top | $138
To be honest, I did not think I was going to keep this. I tried it on, felt like a pirate, and put it right back into the box. I was so disappointed when I first got it because I had such high expectations. I taped it shut, threw the return label on the box and everything.
A day later I couldn’t stop thinking about trying it on again. I saw someone on Instagram wearing it, again, and just thought it was the perfect top to make jeans look a little more put together. I needed a shirt like this that could dress up a pair of jeans and make it look like you tried a little. I tried it on again, texted a friend asking if I should keep it, and then realized I couldn’t let it go. She said yes, my boyfriend said it was growing on him so I had to keep it.
Only downfall for me – the v cut is preeeet-tay low. Aimee suggested sizing up if you didn’t want it too cropped, I opted for a medium which is normally what I go for. The crop is nice, but if I lift my arms it does move up, not a huge deal, but because the v neck is so low it opens up to almost completely show the world the ta-tas. For someone that has no chest it’s kind of a problem, so I’ll have to wear nip covers or pin it to tighten the deep cut.
I love the pieces I got and I can’t wait to slowly purchase more. I can’t wait for the styles that grow on me. The only, only negative I have about this collection is that most of it is dry-clean only. I know a lot of people won’t care about that at all, but I’m just dipping my feet in the quality clothes pool. To be honest I’ve never even been to a dry cleaner. I assumed I wouldn’t be throwing my dress or blazer in the washing machine, but I was surprised that the top also needs to be dry-cleaned. I’ll keep you guys updated on how that goes. I have a feeling I’m going to wear it a couple times then get stressed about getting it dry-cleaning and put it aside for a month or two… let’s hope not.
I’d love to hear from anyone else that has purchased anything from the collection? What’s your favorite piece?
