debshops shopping haul

Today's post will be on a little haul I got from debshops, something different from the usual stores that I patronise. I've actually gone onto their site on several occasions and stuffed my cart but never checked it out because I'm not really mad about the items. Firstly, the models don't look good in the clothes and secondly, they don't style their items very nicely, so it is not appealing to me at all. I only decided to buy these items after seeing them on instagram. They really need to change their stylist and models if they wanna appeal to more girls. Also, free shipping on $60 is way too high. 

So these took a long time to arrive at my US forwarder as well. Around 9 business days so that was a long long wait. I got a grey cardigan, floral fringe kimono, daisy bustier top, hello friday tank top, floral headband, cut out boots, lace crop top and a criss cross peekaboo bralette. I've styled some of the items already and here they are!


Daisy Bustier Crop Top, Marled Cocoon Cardigan, Cut-out Boots

I haven't tried on the top yet but everything looks good so far. It's got a zipped front and hookeye closure, adjustable straps and a padded bust. It is also made of a nice thick stretchy material so I'm thinking it will hug and fit my body nicely. 

The cut-out boots are my absolute favourite purchase here. In fact, I bought all these things because of the shoes. They were less than 20 dollars but that excluded international shipping. They are so worth it though. They fit true to size and are super comfortable to walk in. I don't even think I will need to break into these shoes because they are so comfy! I definitely need them in more colours. 


The cardigan is similar to the one I got from forever 21 but much cheaper. I think it was around 7 bucks because it was on sale. It goes slightly below my knees, which you can see in a picture above. They are actually full length sleeves but I pulled them up higher over here for another look. They've got bat winged sleeves as well and it is just super soft and cozy to wear everyday. I'm just afraid it might catch onto something and snag. 


Hello Friday Tank Top

I need to try out this tank top soon because the cutting looks quite low. I probably have to sew up the straps or tie it up. I guess this graphic tee is reserved for TGIF school days. 


Floral Fringe Lace Kimono

I was hesitant about the kimono at first because it looked hideous on the model and how she wore it. So here is how I styled it with a crop top and woven shorts. A little bit of lace and fringe gives off a boho vibe. The entire kimono is made of lace with florals printed on so it is quite light and very comfortable to wear. It turned out to look a lot nicer in person and is actually distributed from almost famous clothing. 

So, I just placed another order at debshops recently. I hope those items do not disappoint me.

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…
