Outfit Post: Red Lips, Red Nikes

If you follow me on social media then you are well aware that I was in Las Vegas this past week attending CES (Consumer Electronics Show). I love going to CES because it gives me the opportunity to check out the latest and greatest in tech. If you’ve never been to CES before then let be the first to tell you that you want to be as comfortable as possible. When, I tell you guys that I literally walked over 40 miles this week, please believe me! And if you don’t believe me, I have my Fitbit and Samsung Smart Watch as my proof! While I wanted to be comfortable it was also very important for me to be cute as well, so what did I do! I wore as much color as possible from my attire to my lipstick! I can’t even begin to tell you how many compliments I got this week on my outfits and lipsticks.

One of my favorite looks I rocked a CES was so simple yet so cute! I like to call this Red Nikes, Red Lips….

Red Nikes, Red LipstickAt first I was a bit skeptical about wearing my new Nike Dunk Sky Hi Wedges to a conference that required so much walking but to my surprise these shoes were very comfortable. It truly was love at first sight when it came to these red babies, they match my personality so well! I love how the hidden wegdge gives you an extra boost while still remaining comfortable. I had been looking for some red sneakers for quite some time and these Dunks definitely fit the bill. I ordered them from JD Sports in the UK and they arrived literally in a few days! They had such a huge selection, it almost made it hard for me to choose but I kept my eye on the prize. JD Sports has these sneakers and so much more, to check out the full selection go here.

I’m telling you the pictures really don’t do these shoes any justice! I even had men complimenting me on my shoes! Thank you so much JS Sports for helping me get through CES without having to cut my feet off.20140110_141415

I was going for a sporty chic look so I paired my sneakers with this dope Betty Boop Sweatshirt from Forever 21 (get it here) and Jeans from Poetic Justice. And I can’t forget the red lip: I’m rocking MAC Cosmetics Ruby Woo! Yes, your girl is rocking red lips at a conference, sue me!20140110_141735I love, love, love my outfit but I love my sneakers even more… I can’t wait to show you other ways I plan on rocking them. Who says you can’t be fashionable wearing sneakers?
