dailylook LBD spring style challenge

While browsing through DailyLook's Little Black Dress collection, I was inspired to do a little LBD spring style challenge to style my favourite LBD from the collection. So, I picked out the Cross-back Skater Dress which has a cute cut out at the back as well. I went monochrome and a bit towards the preppy side with oxfords and a satchel but chucks and a backpack would do as well. 

I added a comfy crochet cardigan because you never know when it might get cold! You could always switch it up to a blazer if you think that would fit the style more but I like being cozy and comfy so I opted for a cardigan. 

For shoes, I chose oxfords because they give off a smart and preppy look so it plays with the casualness of the dress to make it look a bit sharper. Plus, the satchel bag also does its part as an accessory to make the outfit fun and playful. 

If you're wondering what to wear underneath, I'd say to opt for a simple bra or bralette with sufficient padding to give the dress shape …

charlotte russe march lookbook

This post is long overdue but I've been too busy to blog. For the month of March, I picked out another 6 spring outfits to style from Charlotte Russe. Most of the items should still be available so grab them while you can. 

I had the theme of festival and Coachella in mind since it's spring time and spring break is around the corner so most of my outfits here are going to be boho stuff. I hope you guys like it. 
Top | Shorts | Kimono | Shoes | Bag | Headpiece | Necklace The first look is a more grungy boho kind of style. I chose a graphic tee and paisley fringe kimono to go with it. Plus, the maroon shorts have some crochet details on the side so that's really nice. I like how the graphic tee has a braided back and fringed side cos that adds on to the boho vibes as well. 
Top | Kimono | Shorts | Bag | Necklace | Flower crown I'm actually wearing this top in the first photo of this post and I love it to bits. I think most of us picked this for our promotional posts but the S…

diy: brandy melville graphic tees (updated)

I recently filmed and uploaded a new DIY video on my youtube channel. I did a blog post on these Brandy Melville inspired graphic tees over here last year and it has gone quite viral on pinterest so I decided to film it and make a new blog post with clearer instructions (maybe). I haven't changed much of the tutorial but I think it is more organised than my previous one. If you are too lazy to read, you can always watch the video tutorial. The pictorial was taken from the video anyway. 



Materials:

Plain shirt / FlannelFabric paintUHU glue Craft knifeSpongeComputer and printerCardstockInstructions: The first thing to do would be to print out the stencil for the graphic tee by opening a word processing application and typing in your desired caption. You can choose any caption and font you like but make sure it is big enough. A good estimate would be to fill the entire sheet of paper. Also, you should use the landscape layout as it allows you to type over a bigger area. Some caption ide…

january/february insta faves

Whoops! I haven't had the time to update this space in awhile. I've been so focused on running my store (megoosta.storenvy.com) and meeting deadlines for both my instagram and school that I've neglected this space. This post will just be a little roundup of some of my favourite photos from the month of January and February. It's a little late but it's a good reminder as well.

Charlotte Russe february lookbook

I am delighted to be working with Charlotte Russe to bring to you 6 different looks for February. I have included the links for the items that are still in stock. They run out fast so if you see something you like, you should definitely check out asap!  Links: Top, Skirt, Bag, Cardi, Socks, Sunglasses Look 1 features a classy and cool cross front crop top paired with a floral printed skater skirt. I threw on a cozy knitted cardigan as well for the transitional weather. A touch of gold completes the classiness of the outfit and balances out casual with cool from the overall vibe of the look.  Links: Top, Shorts, Kimono, Bag, Shoes, Necklace, Sunnies You can never go wrong with lace, denim and floral. This boho inspired outfit has all the essentials you need to rock a festival. I picked an M for the top even though I typically wear a size S. It should fit fine on the average sized S girl but I think I might take in the sides because I'm skinny. The shorts are high waisted but they run a…

lightinthebox valentine's day lookbook

I got a bunch of items from Light In The Box and Mini In The Box to do a Valentine's Day themed lookbook or outfit ideas for you guys. I know it's still like a month away but it doesn't hurt to plan ahead and have something to look forward to. I didn't choose anything fancy like dresses or what not because I don't think many of us would splurge on a fancy new dress just for v-day unless it is a really special one for you. So, I put together some casual outfits with the help of versatile pieces that you should be able to find in your own closet as well. If you don't already have a similar item, then maybe it is time to consider getting some shopping done ;) I've placed the links to where you can find most of the items featured in my photos (if they are still in stock as I'm writing this post).  I got the new iPhone 6 recently and it was in need of a new cover. I watched a video online featuring this glittery case before but the shop it was from was sellin…

Wild Daisy Whipped Soaps

I've been into sweet scents and all things that smell good recently. I came across these whipped soaps over at Wild Daisy and decided to pick some up because they sounded so so so tempting. They just look like whipped cream and they do feel like that too! They were priced at $7 each and shipping was also around $7. Apart from whipped soaps, Wild Daisy also carries sugar scrubs and bar soaps in the same sweet scents so there is a wide variety of soaps to choose from their body range. After careful consideration, I picked out Candy Cane (my number one choice because I am a huge peppermint lover), Cookie and Pumpkin Spice. I decided to treat myself to this and bought them over Christmas. I only just recently shipped them back home and tried it out. 
These soaps come in rather small jars of 113g each. They are really light and fluffy in texture, which never ceases to amaze me and have amazing smells. They are all infused with jojoba beads to provide some exfoliation and they lather up …

lookbookstore january picks

It's been awhile since I last updated this space. I am back with a haul featuring some items I picked out from Lookbook Store this month.  Striped Cropped Grey Sweater - $35.00 from: Lookbook Store I actually picked this sweater because I saw it styled so well on another fellow Insta-fashionista, but it didn't turn out so well on me. The sweater is slightly baggy so it would fit someone with a wider frame. I'm just too petite. I think it would be fine for the average person and it would look so fab especially with a skirt.  Two-Colored Knitted Pullover - $31.00 from: Lookbook Store I've seen this styled as a sweater dress many times so I had to get it too because it's still the season of sweaters and sweater dressing. I like the marled knitted details and it can be worn off shoulder as well. It is really quite long so if you are around 5' to 5'4, it should work well as a sweater dress for you.
