2016 Fall Looks for School

I wanted to title this post "Fall Trends" but it might be misleading because I'm not talking about runway looks - I still think they look ridiculous. I'm talking about something more wearable yet trendy and cute. 

These are trends based on my personal observations so no hate please. These photos are nabbed off my Instagram account @megoosta. The outfits are available on my shop www.megoostafashion.com.


Cropped Sweaters
They're a great transition piece for summer to fall or winter to spring. Whenever it's not too cold or not too warm, these are perfect to wear with shorts or jeans. They come in all sorts of designs but the one that is relatively new would be the scallop hemmed one. Kylie Jenner spotted an oversized cropped scallop sweater recently and you know that would surely become an upcoming trend. 




Lace Up Sweaters
We had lace up tank tops and lace up shirts during summer so why not carry over the lace up trend into fall and winter? It is always easy to sport a lace up top since the tie up details already make your outfit not-so-basic. Since there is so much going on top, I like to keep the bottoms simple with a pair of jeans or jeggings without distressing. 


Sweaters with fancy backs
Because sweaters will be the only things you wear throughout fall, you gotta be cute about it and get some sweaters with cute back designs. It could be a lace up design, a criss cross design like this one or a sweater with a graphic design on the back. We'll see what the clothing stores have to offer us. 

Bomber Jackets
Bombers are all the rage nowadays. It started some time in Spring and somehow managed to last all summer. No reason for it to go away now that it is getting colder! The latest trend of bombers have cute phrases written on the backs or front chest area. Patches or embroidery are also cute to add details to your outfit.




90s
Throw it back to the 90s in high necklines and bold stripes plus patches and pins everywhere! 'Nuff said.




Choker Shirts
The choker neckline is still in and if you'd like something different than the popular off shoulder choker look, cutout shirts that retain the high neckline are a cute way to go as well. 

Ripped Jeans
They were around last year and they are still around! I like my jeans skinny and not ripped to the point of destruction. Knee slits are always cute so play it up to your personal preference.

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. …

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…

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…
