wetseal shopping haul 3

I actually got these things quite some time ago (almost a month?) so some of the items have already gone out of stock. Well, I had to wait because I was getting my dad to pay for the shipping back hehe. This haul actually consists of two separate shopping trips but they both costed me around 40 bucks altogether. 

I picked up the following items at the clearance section when they were on 60% off. 




Wasn't too sure about this skirt but it amounted to 4 dollars after discount so I just checked it out. Though I am not too pleased about the print, I do think that it is a cute skirt and the quality is also really good. Plus, it is made in the USA! The material is soft and thick and I really like that part of it. However, I have a bunch of incoming floral skater skirts so I might not keep this. 


Is It Payday Yet Tank

I've loved this tank since I saw it in the new arrivals so I was super happy to find it in the clearance with my size. It seriously describes all that I'm feeling nowadays that I'm working and earning a pathetic sum that interns are paid. I can't support my shopping at all. 




Do these look white in the photos? Yes they do. However, they are actually a light denim colour. I got this in a size 0 and it fits me fine so I'm glad. It is a really cute piece and it is the first overall shorts in my closet! I think I paid less than 10 bucks for this and the quality of the item is really good! From the denim to the buttons and fasteners to the cutting and fit. So pleased with this item. 




Ditsy Floral Slip Dress

I was hesitant with this one as well because it didn't look like it had a lot of flare but at the same time, I liked the low back which I can pair with caged bralettes. It is a tad long and it seems like a really long tank top in my opinion. I guess I'll be putting this up for sale. 




Got this on a whim because I have a thing for flamingoes. I saw this shirt on debshops shortly after that and it is a bit cheaper there. The back has an interesting sheer detail. 




 I would have gotten this in black if they still had my size but this colour is not bad... it's just a bit more intense than I had expected. I like the swing and flare of it as well as the low back and the inner lining. The label is also cutely made as it is a tied up bow but it can get annoying if it keeps popping out of the shirt. 

I got the rest of these items at 5 for $20. Well, they ran out of one item so I actually paid around 12.50 or 13.50 for four of them. 





I was expecting better quality from wetseal but this top just feels really cheap and thin average cotton. It's not sheer and translucent thin but not as thick as I'd hoped it would be.  I got it in black and white to serve as basic pieces to wear with printed bottoms. They are cute but I hope they last long. 




Same thing for these caged bralettes. I got them in grey and maroon but as compared to the forever21 ones, these are just cheaply made. The f21 ones are thick and smooth compared to these which feel like cheap soft cotton. They are not padded but these really require some sort of padding to go with them.

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. …

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…

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…
