sponsored: lookbookstore haul 3

I received two tops and two bottoms from lookbookstore this time round and I am hyped about them. They are all super pretty and I couldn't be happier with the pieces I've received. 
This is a very relaxed and loose fitting open knit sweater. By open knit, I really mean it is almost like fishnet open so it will still keep you breezy. I like the loose fit and it is great to throw over on a casual day. The neckline is also loose enough to wear off-shoulder. I love pairing it with shorts and leggings but I don't seem to be able to tie the waist in a knot like how I would love to. Even so, I would love to get the Port colour as well because this sweater is just so comfy. 
How cute is this poncho top with pompom trims! I like that the top isn't so big and baggy but quite the right size. The pompoms definitely add the right amount of detail and makes everything about it loveable. It is very light so it is fun to wear when the weather gets warm. Pair it with printed bottoms to provide some balance.
If you've been reading my blog, you'd know that I have serious issues when it comes to denim shorts and how they fit me. Thankfully, these fit reasonably well. I ordered them in US2 and while they are still a bit big, I'd give it a pass because I can still pin them. These shorts are the cutest for summer! I'm quite bummed that summer is passing by in the States but since it is summer all day in Singapore, I can still wear these shorts all day. These shorts feature an acid wash with frayed hems and cute little daisies sewn onto the shorts. That's right, they are sewn! As such, you do not need to worry about them falling off over time. The shorts are rather soft as well so they aren't heavy and thick like how some denim can be. Definitely something to add to your closet. 
This has got to be the cutest skirt I've owned. 3D roses! It comes in a sweater form (white and pink) as well which has proved to be very popular. I'm glad they made a skirt version because I have been looking for a nice white skirt and this one gives me something that can be used as a basic and something with details at the same time. The skirt is quite thick because the roses are really dimensional. I liked how the model in the photo from the website wore it. She paired it with a nice taupe/blush sweater. I do find the skirt a bit long though but for tall people, I guess that is fine. I mean, it is alright, it's above my knees and all but I wish it were like just an inch or two shorter. Then it'd be perfect for me. I might have to hem it up on my own. Nonetheless, I love this skirt.

I guess you can tell how excited I am about this review. I seriously recommend you to check out these items though.

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. …

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 wash hair witho…

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…
