valentine's ootd ideas


I know it is still about a month till Valentine's day, but better to start planning earlier right! Time to start choosing and making reservations for your restaurants or places of interest to spend your day or night with your loved ones. Valentine's day falls on a friday this year, so even if you don't get a chance to celebrate on the day itself, you still have the whole weekend to go out and chill together. 

Apart from food and presents, I'm sure us girls would love to dress up specially for the night. I've compiled some looks to give you some inspiration and ideas on what to wear for the day! 

First outfit is the hear cut-out blouse at the top. I've paired it with a maroon lace skirt (although the lace details now look like velvet). Now, I personally wouldn't just wear it out like that because the blouse is super sheer. I most probably would wear a caged bralet inside or a pink camisole, and maybe wear the blouse as a tie crop. Alternatively, I could wear a pinafore so I can cover my front and show my back. But I'm not sure if my mum will be thrilled to see me go out like that... I thrifted the blouse at just $2.50 so I'm quite happy with this find. Skirt is from taiwan. Not very sure what kind of shoes would be perfect for this outfit, but I'd go with my favourite kind of shoes - oxfords. If you want to diy your own heart cut-out shirt, it is quite easy to do without hemming! You'll just need to fold your shirt in half and cut out half a heart shape! 


For the cute and girly look, you can go with a bralet crop top and a cute skirt! This hearts all over top is from hervelvetvase.com and the skirt is thrifted. I like to cover up and wear layers, so I would top it off with a denim jacket, which is from abercrombie&fitch. Hair bows are a must to complete that cute look!! For shoes, you can go with oxford heels or litas. 


If you have absolutely no idea what to choose, pick a dress! Dresses are always suitable for special occasions and you will look pretty, of course. I've picked a floral dress for the sweet and girly look. Thrifted this dress online. I'd pair it with my favourite knit cardigan that has super gorgeous knit details and lace from thelabeljunkie.com! Finally, I paired it with this red satchel bag from forever 21. White heels for shoes! 


If you'd like a more casual look, but not too casual at the same time, you can go with a floral bralet crop top and high waist shorts. I've chosen an embossed high waist shorts because I like details and more details. Pair it with a slouchy knit cardigan and a satchel bag. 


For a more elegant look, why not try high-low or maxi skirts and dresses? You'll definitely look like a princess for the night. Match it with some pretty heels. I was going for the elegant and chic look so I wore my denim jacket too. Forever 21 has the best and widest selection of high-low skirts. I can't help but fall in love with their high-low skirts whenever I see them. Perfect length, and perfect waterfall. 


If you read my flea market finds post, you'd know that I thrifted this outfit for around $15 altogether. The cute bird prints and pink and brown colour combination make it a super sweet outfit for a picnic! So this is an idea if your date happens to be a picnic! 



I also have a heart cut-out dress in red from labellavita.com. I was keeping mine for valentine's day because of the heart cut-out but it doesn't seem like I will be celebrating vday :( so I'll keep it for future vdays. 

I hope you girls have fun choosing your outfits and planning for vday. Remember, even if you do not have a significant other, you are still loved <3 You do not need to spend valentine's day with a guy. I'm sure your girlfriends will be there for you when you need them.

Real vs Fake Adidas Superstar/Stan Smith

I've wanted to do this post for a long time, ever since I started on my crazy collection of Adidas Superstars. I mean, I think I make quite a credible source because at one point, I owned 14 pairs of Superstars and Stan Smiths. I will be migrating my Superstar collection post over to this blog over the coming days so that you can read up on where I got them.



I'm not sure if these shoes are still as popular and wanted now because I am sort of out of the loop but if you are looking to get yourself a pair of Superstars or Stan Smiths, these are a few pointers to look out for in identifying if what you are buying is real or fake. Take note that these features are mostly applicable to recent releases only. Old models and Superstar 80s are slightly different. Then again, old models are not sold in stores anymore so if you find brand new pairs elsewhere, you should be cautious. 

I owned a a few pairs of fake Superstars before I purchased my first original pair from the Adidas website. …

ALL ColourPop Ultra Matte Lip Swatches on Asian Skin + Review

Recently, I dug into my collection of ColourPop Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks and swatched all the available shades on their website. I'm missing 5 from the website and over here, I have 31. The rest have been swatched in other collection videos/posts.

Midi (Pale Dusty Pink) Against my skin tone, this is like a pastel pink. The color remains quite close to that of the tube but the formula is slightly thick and it does settle in my lip lines and feel dry. Not exactly a color I would pull off often but I can see it working with a colorful eye look or a smokey eye.

Bianca (Soft Mauve) Love this shade and it remains quite true to the tube but it is so drying and crumbly on the lips. It accentuates my lip lines and it cracks when I smile. One of the worse formulas in this bunch, especially considering that it is a nude and most companies do not mess these sort of colors.

Clueless (Dusty Mauve) This is a really cute shade. It pulls off pinker on me than in the tube and although ColourPop d…

diy: hair bows

From the cloth I bought recently at Daiso, and with the major diy mood I was in, I decided to make a bunch of hair bows to wear when school reopens. My tutorial has been inspired and sourced through many inspirations on pinterest.  Start off with a rectangular or square piece of fabric. Squares will result in bows like the blue floral one above while rectangles will be like this bow in the tutorial. Mine measured about 24cm by 12cm. For my blue floral one, i used a 15cm by 15 cm square. Fold your fabric in half, with the insides facing out and straight stitch as highlighted. Leave a gap at the edge because you will be inverting the fabric after you're done sewing. This gap should also be of reasonable size, not to small or you will have trouble inverting the cloth. Once you are done, invert the fabric and  straighten it out. You can sew up the gap at this point if it bothers you. Using a pin or a needle, make some pleats with the fabric and pin through to get the bow shape. Once yo…
