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

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 w

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 s
