We style up our retro 'fit with the Kera-08 black mary janes partnered up with white frill socks! For that authentic 2000's aesthetic, we like to throw on our low-waisted Arya skirt and pair that up with a slouchy Webstera top with the Hear me roar bralette layered underneath. Before hitting the mall we accessories with the Chiroptera sunglasses & entwined choker. Get out the flip phone, you're back in the 2000s!
