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!
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.
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 bit big so I recommend sizing down.

Another boho outfit with the same cropped top as above feature an open knit cardi, a studded fringe bag that I am super in love with and some ripped acid wash skinny jeans. I recommend sizing down on the jeans because they run big. I'm quite bummed that the bag is out of stock but you can check back because they may restock! It is a good size to fit many things and it looks so cute!
 Links: Top, Skirt, Jacket, Socks, Bag, Sunnies
This look incorporates a henley top that I have been quite into lately. I paired it with a floral skirt but it would look great with other coloured skirts as well. I picked out a utility jacket to complete the look and I got it in a size L because it was the only size left. It is not too oversized so petite girls do not need to fret. I highly recommend the purse as well. It is actually a wallet because it has so many card holders and the compartments are spacious and not tight. The body strap is totally removable as well. Plus, it looks so cute! 
T-shirt dresses are still in! This one comes with a nifty hood as well. I decided to pair it with this lightweight acid wash denim anorak which is soooo unique and interesting. It adds colour and texture to a simple outfit. The bucket bag is also so cute and it is the first bucket bag I own. 
 Links: Top, Flannel, Shorts, Bag, Sunnies
Me and my graphic tees. I really liked the print of this so I couldn't resist. I had to choose a super cool flannel to go with it as well so I chose this vintage looking one that had a NEW YORK print at the back as well. Definitely an interesting plaid shirt to add to the collection. 
Links: Top, Skirt, Kimono, Bag, Sunnies
I think I am most excited about halter tops this Spring. I love the high neck cut and the exposed shoulders. I paired this lace one with a heather grey skirt and some florals for an extra girly look.

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…
