Mustard Outfits For Fall

When fall comes around, I'm all about brick red, burnt orange and mustard yellows. These colors go best with neutral shades like black, white and denim. In this post, I put together a collection of mustard themed outfits so that you can get inspiration on how to style mustard this fall.
If you're bored of pairing your sweaters with jeans, go for a pair of overalls. I like overalls with some rips and distressing for added details.
A yellow jacket is always a statement. Try to go for something neutral or basic underneath. I paired my cardigan with a crop top with a criss cross waist. You can also use a graphic tee and tie the waist in a knot. 
Mustard stripes are so cute and I can't get enough of them. I paired this stripe shirt with a mustard button skirt for a monochromatic look and balanced out the colors with a cream cardigan.
Another way to style a mustard skirt is with black or white. I used a graphic ringer tee because I'm all about the details.
Black overalls also go great with yellow. You can layer it with denim to add more color to the look.
In this version, I used a yellow flannel to add a pop of color to the look. I kept everything else simple with black and white so that the flannel stands out.
This combination is pretty fun because it involves mustard yellow and maroon. If you are a fan of Lara Jean or Betty Cooper's style, this outfit is for you.
This is a really monochromatic yellow look with a mustard stripe shirt and cardigan.
In this look, I made the cardigan pop by layering it with neutrals. I have a stripe crop top and black jeans underneath and a khaki anorak over the cardigan. The cardigan peeks out in between, giving a pop of color to the outfit.
Lastly, we have another black and mustard outfit. I balanced it out with a cream cardigan because we all need to layer up to stay warm in fall.

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…
