Urban vibes


I was feeling kinda urban today, so I put on these funky adidas sneakers that I originally got for a fancy dress outfit (a Japan-themed birthday party where I was channeling a Harajuku girl). They don't get to see the light often, which is why you can find them in my shop over here. I paired the sneakers with this simple plain shirt dress I got recently from Zara, which doesn't draw attention away from the shoes and lets them stand out.

It's a bit obsessive but I really enjoy matching my lipstick to at least one item I'm wearing. That's why I put on a slick of the MAC lipstick Violetta Amplified to finish this look off - it's the perfect shade for these trainers and a bit grittier than a plain pink or red. I always get this shade out when I am going for a slightly kookier look. By the way, I have been getting very excited about a really dark, gothic lip recently - I'll make sure to incorporate that into one of the next looks.
