wetseal & urban outfitters shopping haul


I bought a total of 5 items from Wet Seal when they were having a 70% off clearance sale, so my items only amounted to slightly over 20 bucks! They are always having some sort of promotion or sale. If it's not a BOGO sale, it's a half off sale. I just placed another order for two slip dresses when they were having a 50% storewide sale. Also, you get a 10% discount code when you sign up for an account or newsletter or something. For this order, I also got a code to use free shipping when I spent more than $15. 

I took a long time contemplating on whether or not I should buy stuff though. I had added a whole bunch of stuff in my cart and some of them were running out (though I figured I could live without those items so it didn't matter). Eventually, I bought two cardigans, a pair of daisy leggings, some oxfords and a NY pendant necklace. The cardigans were at a clearance price of around $22, so after 70% it was about 7 bucks. Couldn't help but buy them in both colours, especially since they were available in my size! 


They looked kinda thick on the modelled photo but it actually isn't. The cardigan is quite light, in fact. It makes a good piece for spring. This is also my first black cardigan, so I can't wait to style more of it! 

The daisy leggings were around 4-5 bucks after discount so I couldn't say no. I got them in XS and while putting them on, I swear I heard the rubber band crack. I didn't do much harm to the leggings though. I guess I just have to be more careful when putting them on as they do not have great stretch at the waist band. Otherwise, it is cute and comfortable. The rest of the leggings have great stretch and it's not too thin. I'll be wearing them with sweaters and longer tank tops.
The floral cut out oxfords were 6 bucks after discount so I was just like, why not? It didn't look too bad in the photo so I just bought it. However, I'm not very pleased with what I got. They aren't the prettiest shoes and the top view of it isn't very nice. The tip of the shoe is rather round and looks odd. I got it in a size 7 and it's a bit big for me. I usually wear a size 38 with socks, so I thought a size down would do if I decided not to wear socks with these. I haven't really tried walking in these yet because I don't really plan to wear them out. Maybe, I'll try breaking them in to see if they are comfortable enough to wear to work though, since I need black shoes for my job at universal studios. 
Finally, I got this NY pendant necklace for a couple of dollars only. I think it is a rather cute piece and I actually got it just to add more stuff into my cart, otherwise I'd only have 4 items. 

Wet Seal shipped my items in a mailer bag rather than a box like F21. It's a good thing for me because my package weighed 0.99kg so HSG charged me 1kg of charges only. WS uses Fedex though, which is super slow and has horrible tracking statuses. My package reached HSG before the tracking status showed as delivered. 


The final thing I bought is this marled open cardigan from Urban Outfitters for $29.99 from their sales section. It is really an investment because I usually wouldn't pay so much for a cardigan or anything. This is really pretty though and it's UO. Quality wise, it's not bad. Quite thick, smooth and soft. It's really comfortable to wear but I'll probably only use it on a chilly day or when I'm wearing spaghettis or something.

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. …

Arctic Fox Hair Dye Review on Dark Unbleached Hair

I've been meaning to try Arctic Fox's hair dyes for a couple of years but never got around to it because I feared it wouldn't show up on dark hair. It's been coming up more and more on Instagram again so I did some research and apparently Purple Rain, Aquamarine and Poseidon do show up on dark hair. So that's what I purchased! These retail for $7.99 (4 fl oz) or $13.99 (8 fl oz) on the Arctic Fox website but I got mine off Amazon.  Arctic Fox hair dyes are vegan and cruelty free. They also do not contain harsh chemicals like peroxides, ammonia and PPD. These are semi-permanent and they contain conditioning agents which means you can use these dyes as often as you want to without damaging your hair. Semi-permanent hair dyes only coat your hair so it will fade with each wash. The bottle claims that it can last up to 40 washes. These smell like grape candy so it is such a treat to use them. The instructions to use this is pretty simple. 1. Shampoo and wash hair witho…

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…
