lookbookstore november picks

Here's a mini faul haul that I got from Lookbook Store. Shop using this link to >>> get $50 off orders above $200 <<< at Lookbook Store. I got five things this time round because I just couldn't stop obsessing over the stuff and it was so hard to decide. So I got two sweaters, leggings and two bags. 
from: Lookbook Store 
First up featured over here is this tassel bag in black. If you have been following me on Instagram or reading my haul posts, you'd know that I got this in khaki as well and because I love it so much, I decided to get it in black as well. It is seriously gorgeous and jet black in person. It gives off very vintage vibes because it is made of suede and everything about it from the quality to the look of the bag is just perfect. It is so versatile and will go with a lot of your outfits. Plus, black is a great colour for fall/winter so definitely pick this up!

Next bag is this black backpack that looks super slick cos of it's high shine finish and it is basically so cute. It is small-medium in size so it is great for all your essentials. It's got three small compartments in the front and it comes in a variety of colours which you can find on their website, such as mint, lilac and white. They are all seriously beautiful. I have this backpack in mint as well and I love it. I get lots of compliments on it whenever I post a photo with it so pick this one too.

The first sweater I picked out is this white one and although it is advertised as a V-back design, I think this one looks better with the V-design in front so that it becomes a V-neck instead. Mainly because I don't think the other neckline was done well. It didn't look like the photo at all so I'd rather keep that at the back. However, I must say that I was super impressed by the quality of the knit and how super soft and comfy it was to wear. I love it so much! There was no weird smell and it was just so smooth to run my fingers over the sweater. A great fall essential. I am definitely eyeing the lilac one.

Also featured here are a pair of sunflower leggings. I have always adored this particular print and I've seen it on crop tops and rompers but never gotten myself anything like that until now so I'm super excited to have them in my closet. They fit a bit loose on me but they should be fine on an average person. I'm just too skinny. Paired it with the sweater I got above and it would go with the maroon sweater below as well.
from: Lookbook Store
Finally, the last item I got is this maroon open knit sweater. I got it in black previously, and I said I'd return to get the maroon one! I loved it so much. It is great for warmer days to just throw over. You can wear it on it's own with a cami or bandeau underneath or throw it over a cami crop top if you start feeling chilly when you go out. It looks great with all sorts of bottoms. Shorts, leggings, pants, skirts... Everything. It can be worn off shoulder so there are so many different ways of wearing this versatile sweater. 

Definitely do check out Lookbook Store for more goodies. Also, you can search my blog for previous lookbookstore hauls to find out what other stuff I got from 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…
