Sisterhood of the Traveling Sakura Convertible Dress

This blog was written by Sonia Dong

This past pandemic summer was a strange one, and with no in-person meetings or events, our small team of four stayed in touch by eating burgers together but apart (on Google Meet), and playing virtual games during lunches while video chatting together!

We were also inspired by the movie The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants (do you remember it?) and decided to share a single Sakura Convertible Infinity Dress in Navy Blue (One Size) over the summer! This dress can be wrapped in over 21 different ways to create different looks for all of your special moments.

Read on to see how this versatile size-flexible dress fits us all and how we each styled it in our favourite way, then dropped off the dress (did we mention that it's machine washable?) to the next team member with a note and small gift!

It was great to break up the summer, get dressed up for an at-home celebration or just because, and help with self-care and mental wellness during our period of isolation from each other.

The goodies and notes we dropped off to each other! And in case you're wondering, the bundle in the top left is the Sakura Midi dress - it's wrinkle resistant so it packed really easily for us to drop off to each other!
