wetseal shopping haul 4

My recent ship in from hopshopgo brought me lots of happiness. They arrived a day after my birthday so it was like birthday gifts from myself. I got these pretty long ago when they were having stuff like 40% off their entire site. I'm thinking it was Independence Day sales. I spoiled myself to these goodies that I just couldn't resist. 
I also won a $250 gift card from the #wsonme contest and I can't even remember what my entry was like. They were so sweet about it though. Just read the card! They did, however, take an eternity to ship the gift card and I kept pestering them about it because I really needed the credit to shop. Teehee. 
This one is kinda like the grey batwing cardi that I got from forever21 and debshops. The cutting is exactly the same. It is soft and comfy as well but my piece had a few runs here and there which made me quite upset. It seemed like they just took it from one of their stores and so it means that someone else has touched it with their dirty hands (maybe). The material is quite interesting. It's got a mix of materials. The white streaks are like cotton or something but it gives an interesting texture to the cardi. 
I kinda needed a lightweight outerwear so I got this even though the price is quite steep. I mean it basically is a piece of chiffon with lace sewn onto the sleeves. But something like that is bound to run out of stock pretty fast so I just grabbed it. Turns out the label says it is made in USA so I feel a bit better about my buy. I later found it on debshops for cheaper...
I actually got this in Medium because there were no more smalls. I don't think the size really makes a difference because it still looks good on. Maybe the sleeves are a bit longer? On the whole, this is a really comfy cardi and great for boho looks. The fringe details are super pretty and it is quite light to wear as well. 
Totally fell in love with the little details on the back, plus it's a swing top so I just had to have it. I got it in maroon since black and white were out of smalls. It can go with plain denim shorts or with your favourite printed shorts. There are lots of ways to style it. 
This tee totally says what I feel every single day. It is super soft and comfy to wear. I'd pair it with my utility jacket and some denim shorts for a casual look. It is actually quite fitting on me and not as loose as it looks on the model but that's maybe because I got it in XS. 
I have loved such tops ever since I got my iwearsin crop tops and this is sorta similar. The lace pattern is quite unique. It has a high front and low back as well and I almost got it in white but then I decided to save my money. 
This crop top is just totally adorable. The bow detail is so sweet. I'd pair it with floral shorts or skirts for a super girly look! 
I know I can probably only wear this on fridays but I couldn't resist it because it's got a bit of swing to it. It is also quite cute but a bit on the expensive side. The shirt is really soft though. 
Embellished Hooded Anorak Jacket $36.90
I got this when they were having 40% off storewide and I'm glad I did because it seems like the jacket is almost out of stock. However, I'm quite bummed that I received a defective piece. One of the pockets came without the button so it looks weird, uneven and not perfect. My OCD is sure to kick in. The metal studs seem to be glued on and I am quite sure I can easily rip them off if I really do not like them. They have another anorak jacket that is 90% similar to this but with only 3 pockets on the front and the pocket flaps do not have buttons. I was having such a hard time deciding between the two but I settled for this eventually. It has a detachable hood as well but I think the hood adds a really cool look to the jacket. 

LA NY Tee $17.90
I loved how the tee looked on the model. It seemed so soft and comfy and it really is. I also really like the scoop neck, plus it was on 40% discount so I just got it. The graphic itself is cute. I would totally love to go back to LA and visit NY one day. 
I've been eyeing this backpack ever since I saw one on Charlotte Russe but I couldn't get it because CR doesn't accept international credit cards. I was so happy to have found it on Wet Seal. Although it's a bit expensive, it is about $18 after discount. Right now, the backpacks are $19.50 and I think they are well worth the price. The material seems good, strong and sturdy. I can fit my 15" laptop as well although the bag will take on a weird shape. I got it to use for school but right now, I'm thinking it is way too pretty for that. 
I got this jacket in Olive and though the web picture shows that it is dark brown, it is actually olive green. I was kinda sad because I was totally looking forward to a dark brown jacket. Otherwise, this jacket is great. It is soft and has a very relaxed fit. Super comfortable to wear. 
Totally adore this simple tank top and I think many others do as well because all the colours sold out in smalls pretty fast. I got it in grey because that was the only colour left with a XS/S. The back has some elastic to give it the cinch and it's so soft to the touch. It's got a great flow too. I wish I had the other colours. It is 40% off now so grab it if you see your size!
Floral Crochet Backpack $29.90
This one went on clearance so I got it for cheaper. I'm not sure how much I paid for it. It is slightly smaller than the daisy backpack and actually feels kinda weird when worn. I'm also kinda scared that the big will get dirty easily. The crochet sits like an overlay on the bag but everything else still feels fine. 

I am totally loving my haul from Wet Seal. They make shipping back to Singapore so easy as well because they pack my items so tightly and in a bag so I really save on weight and repacking fees.

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
