debshops shopping haul 3

I'm going to start of this post with something quite irrelevant but I'm so happy that debshops packed my 2 shoeboxes in a polybag because I was only charged for the total actual weight of my package instead of it's mega huge volumetric weight, so that saved me lots of money. Anyway, I got this haul mainly because of the cutout boots that I really really wanted. It's so pretty and they were all out of my size on other websites. More on that later!
 The first thing featured here is this babydoll top that is actually quite like a brandy melville dress because it has an open back with the strap as well, just that it is super short. It's meant to be a tunic but I will probably just wear short shorts underneath and pretend it's a dress. Anyway, this was on $5 sale. 
 The embroided babydoll top here was also on $5 sale. It's quite pretty with that little flare at the bottom and subtle details at the chest. 
 The daisy trim top here is also $5 and is quite similar to my iwearsin top but I got it to fill up my cart to hit free shipping. 
This pineapple graphic top was something that I have been eyeing also although it is actually quite long and I'd wear it with leggings or something. The pineapple's sunnies are glittery and the glitter kinda gets everywhere though. It also looks screen printed so I'm glad I didn't pay anything more than $5 for it. 
Now, for the shoe that I have been obsessing about! This is it! It's by Qupid shoes and I got it for $30 which is 25% off it's usual price on debshops. It has a 3" heel height which is still okay for walking. I got it in size 7 and it fits comfortably. The cutouts are really cute and will go with both jeans and skirts. However, I do think the material of the boot is not really of very good quality. It's quite thin and flimsy, kinda looks like it may come apart after awhile. You can see what I mean in the second picture:
I also got these golden metallic gladiator sandals for about $10 and these sandals have given me a whole new perspective on sandals because they are so comfortable to wear! They are totally unlike forever21's lousy hard flat sandals because these actually have some cushion! The soles at the heels seem to have extra cushion but I'm not sure where the cushioning is coming from. Perhaps it is because of the thicker outsole that the sandals have. I'll be looking out for more shoes from Yoki. I was actually so hesitant at first also because I thought the golden straps would be flimsy but they are not at all. They are flexible and durable. I highly recommend these sandals.
Yup, so now I'm kinda tempted to get more shoes from debshops although my shoe cupboard doesn't really allow that...

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…
