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. …

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…
