New wig time! I tried doing a blowout yesterday, like my hairstylist had done last week, but I just ended up with a frizzy mess. Guess I need more practice.
Either way, I got this new one from an ebay shop that carries Clair Beauty wigs- my diligent team of researchers (aka, my typin' fingers) told me that these ones were good. Not the best- but good. And thusly, I have some mixed feelings about it....
When I first put it on, I immediately loved it and it totally made me feel like a rock star. In my indie musician dreams, this is how my hair would look every. single. day. Long, bed head-y, mullet-y, and lookin' like I just don't give a WHAT. Plus it's close to my real color, and it actually feels like real hair.
However, it's a thinner and less sturdy than my other wigs by Gabalmania. I really don't mind this, because that means it's more manageable and easier to wear. I feel like I could walk around, and not feel like I have a sack of potatoes weighing down my head. But, the dealbreaker- it doesn't photograph as well as the Gabalmania one. This could just be due to my lack of styling... but in some photos, it looked like a mop and didn't hang as nicely.
I still think I'll still wear it/ photograph with it, and I already ordered another one as soon as I got this and tried it on, soooo.....
So enough about wigs, this is the dress I got at Lulu's style studio the other weekend! I know it's a little difficult to see, because of the background is white and so is the dress. But it's crochet-y and fancy- a dress you would normally wear to a wedding or a fancy-dancy dinner. Not my usual style. But I don't have a dress like this. My usual style categories: casual/ artsy/ twee/ hipster (yes, I said it.) So I thought, what the hell. Try something new. Take a chance.
When I put the dress on along with the wig, it inspired me to get a little punky rather than more adorned. I kept imagining Courtney Love, in her beautiful ballgowns, smeared lipstick, and ripped stockings. I don't think I completely succeeded in creating the grunge princess look of my dreams, but I loved adding the belt, accessories, and the fishnet thigh-highs that We Love Colors sent to me last year. (They'd been sitting in my drawer all that time, so glad to finally put them to good use!)
I wanted to further the pretty/ dirty effect with a beat-up pair of combat boots, but Matt said they were no bueno. Looks like we didn't even get a shot of my feet, so I totally could've rocked them anyway- haha. I guess it didn't turn out grungy, so much as... I don't know what. But I do like the result!
