ootd: BFF spring outfits

I haven't updated this space for a long time because I have been so busy with school work. Since I haven't posted anything related to fashion for a long time, I shall do a short spring outfit post because I haven't written anything for so long! 

I haven't bought anything new yet so I've been mixing my clothes around to create new outfit variations. I've been feeling so uninspired! I did, however, manage to do up these two sets of outfits which are great for a BFF matching outfit day. They aren't bff twin outfits cos the prints don't match but they look good together. So, down below, you can see me being my own bff in the two outfits when worn. 
The plain tank top is from Cotton On, but I actually bought it for just $2 from a local reseller. The material is super soft and flowy, which makes it perfect to tie a knot! This is a rare phenomenon in my closet because the tops I get normally can't tie knots. The skirt is also thrifted but there's a similar piece at forever 21 in shorts form. And that is my favourite cardigan which is also from a reseller. I'm actually wearing a pink daisy bralette from f21 underneath because the tank is a tad sheer, but it's not very obvious in the photo. So, this is currently my favourite look for various reasons, plus it is so comfy! 
Add a little contrast to florals with some stripes! Crop top and denim skirt are American Apparel inspired pieces. Cardigan was thrifted but I saw it in Taiwan! It was really quite cheap, going at 100 NT which is about $4.50? I'd totally wear this to school. Simple and not too over dressed. 

Oh, and it was rainy today, so the weather was just perfect to take these shots! Totally reminds me of why I love sweater weather because then I'd get to cozy up in these cute cardigans!

Until next time!

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…
