DIY: Summer Daisy Clothes




All it takes is a bit of daisies to liven up your clothes and make them a hundred times cuter! Daisies are my all time favorite flowers and these are just a handful of ways to decorate your clothes with them. They are super easy 5 minute diys that can be done anytime!

Check out my YouTube video for this below!

Materials:

  • Daisy appliques (mine came in the form of ribbon so I just cut them to separate them)
  • Clothes to upcycle
  • Hot glue gun/craft or fabric glue OR
  • Sewing equipment

Instructions:


Daisy Halter Top

I think this halter top was made popular by LF Stores when it was first released about two years ago. I always wanted one because it is so cute but I never bought one. So now that I have a spare stripe halter, I decided it would be a good idea to DIY one for myself! It is super easy and still cute for the summer. I paired them with high waisted acid washed shorts for a greater contrast.

  1. Decide where you would like to place your daisies on.
  2. You can choose to either glue them down or sew them on. I sewed mine one by threading my needle through the centers of the daisies a couple of times.

Daisy Trim Crop Top



Inspired by a daisy trimmed tank top that I own and a daisy trimmed bustier that I saw online, this sweetheart crop top is so feminine and girly with the added daisy details. This diy works best with loose flowy camis or a tight crop top with a sweetheart neckline.

  1. Since my daisy appliques came attached together as a ribbon, all I had to do was to glue them along the neckline of the cami. Alternatively, you can sew them down.
  2. Apart from lining the neckline, you may consider lining the straps for more daisy details.

Daisy Denim Shorts

Daisies on denim shorts are just the perfect combination. A light-medium wash pair of shorts works best. There are so many ways to decorate your shorts with these daisies so get creative! You could do rows of daisies across the front of your shorts, or line the pockets with daisies, or scatter the daisies all over. I would suggest using a hot glue gun to attach the daisies on because there may be a few hard to reach spots if you were to sew.



I hope you enjoyed this DIY and definitely do give it a go because it is quick and easy to do.

xoxo

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…

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…
