ootd: caged bralettes

I finally found these caged crop tops in black and white in our local forever 21 store! Got them at Somerset 313 today for $17 each. It's super expensive but I guess I wouldn't be able to get them cheap anywhere else other than f21 online. It totally sucks that I have to pay so much for them but they go really well with backless tops and dresses. So here is my collection of caged crop tops from forever 21. Did a few outfit layouts with them to serve as outfit ideas. They can be worn on their own, with a cardigan, or with a backless smock dress.
There are lots of online stores selling these brandy melville jada dupe dress and forever 21 has had a few. I think those at f21 or wetseal are the cheapest they can get so you should definitely get them when you see them online. Otherwise, love culture and some storenvy shops have pretty cute and unique designs as well. Not only are the backs pretty and flirty, the front of the dress has a nice shape as well! It would go well with a cardigan or a sweater over. 
You could also wear them with a graphic tee with huge arm holes to show off the cage part and the patterns if you choose a patterned crop top. 
Otherwise, wear them on their own or under a sweater. Not sure if the people in singapore would approve of such fashion though. 
I'll be keeping them to wear with a bunch of babydoll dresses I bought. I should be receiving them in the weeks to come and I can't wait for my new clothes! Gotta make some room for them in my closet too.

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. …

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…

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…
