necessary clothing haul

I stumbled upon Necessary Clothing, which is a boutique located in New York, while watching youtube videos of laurdiy's hauls. She picked quite a few nice things so I checked out their website. They offer free domestic shipping on orders over 75USD and international shipping is at a flat rate of $20. I went to their sales section to see if I could snap some good deals and I did! I found two pairs of shoes and three tops and then I figured I'd just pay for international shipping since there were shoes involved and the shipping fee isn't exorbitantly high. 

Left: Karlie Cutout Boots | Right: Karlie Cutout Sandals
Both these pair of shoes were $16 each and I got them in size 7 but I think I could have fit in a 6.5 because I can still stick a finger in after wearing. They come with a zipper at the back for easy wearing and adjustable buckles. They are cute but I'm not sure if the toe is too pointy for my liking. What do you think of them? The boots cut my feet at the cut-out parts at the moment but I'm not sure if they still will after I break them in. The sandals are pretty comfy. Both shoes also do not seem to have much friction at the soles, which may become a problem. 

I picked out this tunic because it looked so dainty and pretty. It's got some cute embroidery design at the front and a tie-up back. So the whole top is totally adjustable and so it fit me pretty well. The hem is also super pretty and kinda looks like a pixie dress. I couldn't fit shorts into my layout but they are too short to wear as a dress. This one costed me $16 as well. It's on the expensive side but I love it very much. I'd say it is worth every penny. 

This tank was only $6 and it has tumblr vibes to it. The graphic is super pretty with all the sunflowers and caption. It also has a low back so you can pair it with caged back tops or bralettes with interesting strappy backs. It is also super soft so I'm loving it.

The last thing I got is this "Love" crop top for only $2.99. I was so surprised to still find it in my size so I just had to get it. It is quite soft as well and would go well with shorts and sneaks. 

If I hadn't gotten the shoes, I would have shipped it to my hopshopgo because the clothes are really lightweight. The bulk of the weight went into the shoes. Anyway, they delivered via DHL Express so I received my package quite fast. I placed the order on monday night which is their monday morning, and it was processed and shipped in like 2 hours? DHL delivered to me on Thursday noon. It came in a rather big box, so I don't feel so bad about paying 20 bucks for shipping.

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…
