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 (for my Japan themed birthday party where I was emulating the style of a Harajuku girl). They don't get to see the light often but I really felt like wearing them today. 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. The sneakers are an older model which probably isn't available anymore. If you fancy a similar crazy-coloured pair, you'll be sure to find great alternatives on ebay, where I got my pair as well.

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.
