I'm so stoked to have received three pairs of custom made shorts from rearrangeus which specialises in tie dyed and custom made clothing. I gave them my measurements and their team went on to search and create these ombre shorts for me. 

The shorts are vintage denim shorts that vary in brand but they are all high waisted and about the same size. Like, the purple-pink one is originally from Lee Jeans. I got these shorts in XXS which is about 11.5" across the waist. They sit above my belly which is a criteria I have for high waisted shorts. However, the length is a tad too long for my liking and the straight cut of the shorts are not very flattering. I have cut one of the shorts to shorten it and give it a nicer cutting already which you can find in my diy post. All the shorts have got nice frayed edges though so I really like that. 
The dye job, however, isn't too good. I am not too pleased with the way they did it because there were random spots of dye on the shorts. You can see that mess on the blue pair. I'm not sure if it is intentional or accidental but I would prefer it not to be there. The shorts would also definitely look better with some rips and studs. I think you can request for that if you are getting your shorts custom made. I didn't because I didn't even know what they were going to send me. 
Anyhow, these are still so cute and fun for summer and I'm so glad that rearrangeus got me three pairs of super fitting shorts! They fit my waist, my hips and are not as big around my thighs as other shorts. They were tagged $35-40 which is the average price of ombre shorts plus these vintage shorts come from well known brands so I'd say they are quite good. They have lots of stretch to them so even someone who is slightly bigger than me would fit perfectly in these shorts.

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
