A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to win one of those Instagram competitions. You know - one of the ones where you have to re-instagram the photo with the appropriate hashtags and more often than not it's just a way for the brand to get some free advertising and nobody actually wins (at least thats what it normally feels like). Well I ACTUALLY won one! So it is possible to win something - keep re-instagramming people! The brand in question is Lip Service. Lip Service started out with founder Drew Bernstein making leggings without knowing a thing about sewing. He taught himself along the way, found a market and soon started creating rocker fashion that no one else was making.
Over a decade later Lip Service is still dishing out clothing for punks, rockers and everyone in between. Personally I love Lip Service because it creates much more fashion-forward versions of the clothes I might have worn back in my goth days in school. The item I was lucky enough to win is actually something I had been thinking about buying for ages. You know how much I love anything sheer, and the kinetic shirt is made from a frosted rubber, which makes it feel super modern. I'm loving white on white at the moment so I teamed the shirt with my white leather jacket. I felt it was time to rock my light-up trainers once again, as the lights really complimented the futuristic feel of the shirt. I kept the rest of the outfit clean with black skinny jeans and my black fedora, and finished the whole thing off with my Gypsy East septum ring - a little nod to Lip Service's punk roots. Even if you're not into the whole punk/goth thing, you should definitely check Lip Service out because they have some super cool pieces that you definitely won't find anywhere else on the high street.
