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. 
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 Smalls ran out really fast. I got it in Medium and had to sew the sides in because it was far too big. Anyhow, I really like the idea of lace, denim and florals for festival outfits. 
This is probably the only non-festive spring outfit in this lookbook but I still like it very much too. The cutout details are very cute and the crop top is form fitting in general, which makes it a perfect top to go with these adorable floral shorts with crochet detailing to them. Plus, I love these blush pink cutout oxfords which happen to be in the same colour theme as the outfit. The top does run big though, so I couldn't fit in it :(
This lace top actually has fringe to it but I would actually snip them off if I could because I think it looks cuter as a crop top. Paired it with these super flattering high waisted shorts, which I'm also wearing in the first photo, along with my DIY kimono, which you can check out on my youtube
The halter top over here isn't from CR but I thought it looked cute with these crochet trimmed paisley shorts. Plus, I wanted to style my halter a bit differently than what I would usually do - denim shorts. 
TopShorts | Shoes
I absolutely love this outfit and it's one of my favourites because it's got all my favourite things in one look. This top is in a size L but it still fits me very well so I'm not sure if it really is a size L or a one size fits all kinda thing. It is very stretchy though, so don't worry. I like the halter style of this top and it doesn't compromise on the back so you can still wear a strapless bra underneath. 
The last look over here features a pom pom trim cami and a gorgeous lace fringe kimono. It would make a great outfit for everyday wear as well.

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…
