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 and so that the back strap can remain well hidden under the cross over part of the dress. You don't want your bra straps to be peeking out from the cutouts, do you?

Other accessories I used was a little dangly necklace to add more details to the dress and a classic vintage leather looking watch. The watch is definitely looking very versatile to mix and match with all kinds of looks. 

So, what do you think? All the items here can be found on dailylook.com so do check them out for more adorable pieces.

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…
