Street culture at Sole DXB

It’s been a while since I’ve gone out and checked out anything that’s hip or happening, yes motherhood does take a toll into one’s┬ásocial life, but now finally a whole year later of trying to grasp between motherhood, work and balancing somewhat of a social life, I am now finally getting out there ! Yippee for me ­čÖé

Anyways, a girlfriend randomly mentioned Sole DXB to me, saying that it reminded her of being in NYC, my fav city, and it was full of pop up trunks, great clothes , mostly shoes – think 90’s cool Reeboks, high tops – and tasty food stalls. No, I could not resist and I’m so glad I actually paid a visit !!!!

I dragged my friend, Ms.VintageTeaPotQueen , an awesome T-shirt designer, to SoleDXB which was held at the Design District, and we were welcomed by the hippest hip hop and RnB sounds, a basketball court filled with adrenalin, and the coolest sneakers that instantly brought me back to my childhood.
