Wig review: Just peachy lace front wig by Zella Rose Wigs

Lace front wig vs regular non-lace wig

Just peachy lace front wig by Zella Rose Wigs is my first lace front wig. I have been wanting to buy one for quite some time. So when opportunity presented I did it and as it seems I purchased the last one in stock. Lucky me!

The main difference between lace front wigs and “regular” wigs (non-lace) is the material of the cap.

The difference

With the lace front, you have the front of the wig that is “made” from lace. “Lace” that is a gentle “lace” looking material with strands of hair glued onto it. To me it looks more like tulle than lace.

The regular ones have some other material and strands of hair are glued in rows with gaps in between.

Lace front wigs create an illusion of real hair with (mostly) changeable parting parts, as where the regular (non-lace) wigs do not offer that option.

With regular non-lace wigs you are confined to the fringe-parting style you bought. Long side swept fringes will never become middle parting fringe or you will never be able to pull them up in an up do.

With lace fronts you can do that. You can create several different styles, change the parting, experiment and add your unique personal touch.

Just to note, there are full lace wigs too that offer even more flexibility (as I have read), but since I do not own any I can`t talk from my own experience.

Just peachy lace front wig is a pastel dream magnificence

I do not remember exactly how I stumbled upon Zella Rose wigs, but boy am I glad I did.
The moment I saw Just peachy lace front wig by Zella Rose I knew it had to be mine, because I have never ever seen anything like it. The perfect color combo of ginger-peach-pink pastel shades that blend seamlessly.

What is Just peachy all about

Just peachy is super long lace front wig – 22 inches, with huge bouncy curls. It is the longest wig I own and for me personally takes time to get used to it, since I have never ever had hair long like that.

The wig is resistant to high temperature which means you can curl it more or straighten it (and make it even longer), but of course do that with care and caution as you would with your natural hair. It is synthetic hair and it will burn if you expose it to too much heat.

Just peachy is not only long but very thick and rich, giving you a nice luscious mane worthy of a lion. The wig has an adjustable cap to increase fit and comfort, little “hooks” to add security and you don`t need to apply glue.

How to style Just peachy lace front wig?

If you go over to Zella Rose website you can see that the wig comes with a center parting. Personally, I did not like that because I have a small face and all this hair just eats me up. So, I tried a few different ways of styling, just tried to find what works best for me.

How to style a wig

As you can see I decided to try a half up-do with a messy top knot, and it worked very well. Don`t be surprised if you have a bit of a challenge with securing the bun (knot) on top of your hair, since this is a wig and you have way more hair than usual.

Hair is heavy too and when you secure it with pins or whatever you are using – be very careful and gentle so you don`t break your wig (cap).

If you want to change the side of your parting you can do it easy with just a blow dryer or curling iron. Just go over the new parting with some heat and that will “seal” the hair in place. Be careful with the amount of heat, you don`t want to burn/melt your wig.

Wig care

Taking care of your wig is one of the most important things when it comes to long quality wig life. Store it properly in zip-lock bags, away from dust and liquids, or anything that could make it dirty or sticky. You know what I mean.

How to wash your wig

Washing your wig is an easy task and how often should you wash it depends on how often you wear it and in what conditions. You will know when it is time to wash it by the smell if nothing else.

I don`t wear my wigs every day, my home is cigarette free and I avoid wearing my wigs to coffee shops etc. But if you wear them daily and in different conditions you should was your wig more often.

You can see the detailed post about washing your wigs here.

Removing that shine

Also,  “de-shining” your wig is an important process of your wig wearing, which means you might need to wash your wig even if it did not get worn often and in smelly conditions. Why?
There are few ways to de-shine your wig. One is by leaving it soaking in a bucket for 5-7 days in fabric softener (I haven`t tried that one yet). Second is “bathing” your wig with talc/baby powder.

In my experience, with some wigs I had no problem when I applied baby powder. With peach and one other (new) wig I experienced some stickiness and ends being more coarse. Also the wig was full of static electricity which is a horrible experience when you want to brush your wig out or wear it.

When that happens – wash your wig. I use the same shampoo and conditioner as for my own hair. Be gentle and careful. Leave it to dry on a head stand or on a dry towel nicely laid down on my dresser. It takes a day or so to dry.

….and that is it folks!

I have few more wig styles I plan share with you. A long curly purple wig and a new “short” red lace front.

Wow, this post ended up being longer than I could ever imagine. I hope you don`t mind.
If I forgot anything feel free to ask. You have the comment section and my social media to ask anything and everything.

Pinup style edition: Red kiss or a short list of classic pinup staples

“There is a shade of red for every woman” – said one of the biggest icons (not only fashion wise because she was so much more than a pretty face) of our time, Audrey Hepburn. And it is true, red has many shades and I am sure there is a right shade of red for every woman in the world.

With this topic I would like to start my small themed set of posts called “Pinup style edition” that will, in short present my take on mid-century fashion and beauty.

Pinup style edition: red kiss

When it comes to shades of red for my lips, I like them juicy and bright red. The reddest red shade with only red tones is what I will choose any time of the day. Normally, I don`t wear lipstick that much, to be honest. And that is for two reasons; first being that I find it very very hard to find that perfect red shade that won`t become pinkish or orange-y when I put it on – which usually happens. So far I had a hard time finding that perfect red shade, I always settled with something “close” but not quite “right”. For some reason all lipsticks, no matter how red they look while off, seem pink when on my lips.

I did a bit of digging and entertaining the thought of buying a new red lipstick, and found few that seem deliciously perfect.
1941 – Victory Red Lipstick Special Edition from Besame cosmetics looks really good, but maybe a bit too dark for what I am actually looking for – BUT – i like the darker shade to my own surprise so very much. Will put it on the list.

I didnt expect to get mind-blown by Lime crime velve-tin matte liquid lipstic, but I was, so much. My shade would be “Red velvet”. It look so good. Red Rose shade is also very nice, bit darker.

From Urban Decay I would pick the shade DOUBT (hahaha pun intended) from their Vice lipstick collection.

LeKeux Cosmetics has the most fabulous name if you ask me and a pretty nice shade of red – Whistle Bait.

 

So, you got the idea that red lips are one of the staples of a classic pinup look. Don`t get me wrong, you can wear any shade you like, or need to – but red lips with black winged liner are what pinup look is well known for, at least when it comes to make up.

Aside from red lips, as I mentioned above, winged liner is another staple in classic pinup look.
When it comes to winged liner most girls and women get discouraged of trying it because it seems so complicated to master. And for me – it is! But fear not. There is a solution for everything and one of the reasons I decided to work more on my blog and start “Pinup style edition” is because I want to share the goods and the bads of life as a pinup. A woman. A person in this wast universe.

So back to the winged liner. I tried it all. Liquid liners, sharpie looking liners, brushes with tips like this or that and nothing worked for me. Also I dont like the way my eyes and face look with that harsh black liner. I am white as a paper and pure black is too sharp/edgy/hard for me.

What did I do to make it work?
After I found what works for me, I wear winged liner every single day. And in any color I wish.

How did I make it work?

I use eye shadow. Plain and simple. Regular eye shadow.
When it comes to the shade of my “liner” I use dark grey anthracite eye shadow to draw wings on my eyes.
To make my wings I use a simple regular brush like this. [ TBH I actually use my lip liner brush to make my wings but the one on the link is the next best thing. My best advice is – see for yourself what works for you (and maybe only you). ]

It took me some time to learn my face, to get familiar with my skin and to figure out how to work the brush for the best result.

And let me tell you, it was a game changer for me.

Do you remember my winged liner issues from this post? How I wish I knew then what I know now. But, you live and learn. And share your knowledge with the world.

[ A little side note
Do you like my graphics for this post?
I hope you do. They were made in Canva, but I will share my tools and the process of making my graphic with you soon in a separate post.]

With lips and eyes out of the way, to nail the famous pinup look all the way you need to pay attention to your hair and nails. Before we continue, let me emphasize this:

There is no right or wrong way to do this, and by this I mean “be a pinup”. I have seen so many people hazing others around the world, in real life but mostly on social media and put them down because in their opinion they did it  – wrong.
Sure, there are some “rules” that were made in 1950s, and by rules I dont mean rules you need to blindly follow, but the rules that describe and help us understand how women of that time wore their clothes, did their hair and makeup.
Having those guidelines and not rules you are free to develop your own pinup style and make it special the way you want to.

With that said, lets talk hair.
Pinup hair is one big special area where I personally have the least expertise (I dont think I have any expertise anywhere, I just manage my life barely.), but thank god we have internet these days that makes it possible for us to watch tutorials from those who rock their hair like – Miss Rockabilly Ruby, Cherry Dollface or Ashley Marie.

For all the step-by-step tutorials please go and watch their tutorials, they have you covered all the way.

What I will share here with you hair wise is this:

Types of pinup hair styles!

This way you will have the basic idea what you are looking for and where to find it.

  1. Victory rolls (what I have in my photo above)
  2. Page boy
  3. Boufant
  4. Bettie Page hair
  5. Chignon
  6. Finger waves
  7. Pixie cut a la Audrey Hepburn
  8. different updo`s or half updo`s including victory rolls and curls

….. aaand, last but not least – Nails.
When it comes to nails the most famous modern pinup nail style is red half moon by Dita von Teese, but it is good to know that women really painted their nails that way back then.
Nowadays (modern) pinups wear their nails in almond shape, usually red (with or without aforementioned half moon).
If you prefer your nails not so long, of in gel – that is OK. We all have our own ideas of beauty and how we like to go about things and wear them, like I have my nails with white tips in this photo – red is no where to be found.

Although it is said that red nail polish is one of the staples of a classic pinup look, do as you are pleased.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, anyway.

I hope you liked the first post of my Pinup style edition blog series. If you have any suggestions what to include – leave a comment, email me or find me on social media.

1920s inspired look on a budget

Dressing up in  a 1920s inspired look is not something I do every day. May once a year and it has been several years now since I last did it.
Although I don`t feel the same kind of love and appeal towards 1920s fashion it is fun to do it from time to time, put all that glitter and sparkles, feathers and pearl strings and just enjoy the glam era like a boss.

1920s inspired look on a budget

When I think about 1920s (that was almost 100 years ago) Great Gatsby parties come to mind. But there was a lot going on besides just crazy good parties in dashing outfits.

The 1920s were an age of dramatic social and political change. For the first time, more Americans lived in cities than on farms. The nation’s total wealth more than doubled between 1920 and 1929, and this economic growth swept many Americans into an affluent but unfamiliar “consumer society.” People from coast to coast bought the same goods (thanks to nationwide advertising and the spread of chain stores), listened to the same music, did the same dances and even used the same slang! Many Americans were uncomfortable with this new, urban, sometimes racy “mass culture”; in fact, for many–even most–people in the United States, the 1920s brought more conflict than celebration. However, for a small handful of young people in the nation’s big cities, the 1920s were roaring indeed. – History channel

1920s inspired look on a budget
 
When you got the dress all you need is a headband, glitter, feathers and gloves and lots and lots of pearls. For the purposes of my little 1920s inspired look photo shoot I had all that already at home, so it was a cost free project but I guarantee that if you get a bit creative you can totally do it on a budget. I always do!
 
1920s flapper girl gatsby inspired
 
So my dress was actually not flapper/charlston/gatsby/1920s inspired at all. It has open back decorated with strings of black “pearls” which is very nice, works as a nice toned down, demure decoration if like to keep it low key or you dont want to wear regular pearls (in the front). The most fun part of the dress is that it is actually a mini dress that has a “puffy” top part and tight bottom part. I stretched it all the way down to my knees to get that 1920s dress silhouette. A headband, 1920s inspired makeup (but I kept it pretty light and low key) and pearls – et voila!
 
Vintage 1920s gatsby girl pearls
 
Usually the makeup is much more intense but I was in the mood for something gentle and subtle. Go for darker colors, statement on eyes and brows but lips too (baby doll lips). Might seem a bit much at first and against all makeup rules, but that was the way women did their faces back then. I think there are a many examples of truly beautiful ways to do your 1920s inspired makeup, stay close to modern ages and still ooze that vintage flapper vibe. Pinterest is your friend!
Vintage gatsby flapper girl look
 
If you follow the link to the 1920s board I made for this post, you will see all the different looks I pinned for inspiration. Some are more intense, some totally low key, there more contemporary ones and true vintage makeup looks – see what you like, what is closer to true you or what would you like to try and just – do it! Play. Enjoy.

Vintage Zagreb festival 2016 edition – Retro nostalgia and pinup girls

October started in the most fabulous way here. On the October 1st, Vintage Zagreb festival started taking us back all the way back to 1940s to 1970s. Festival of true vintage/retro nostalgia and pretty pinup girls.

Vintage Zagreb festival #2

Vintage Festival is a unique blend of culture from the 1940s, 50s and 60s, a period rich in great music, fashion, film, art, dance and design. It is Zagrebs response to a large number of similar festivals recently launched across the whole Europe and aimed to remind people of the best of this interesting period of the mid-twentieth century.

Vintage festival  presents a series of artists who cherish the retro culture, visitors can see the exhibition of old cars and engines as well as hand-made bikes from SentiMental Bikes.

We have also organized  sales of old vinyl records. All interested visitors can participate in dance workshops, led by a renowned team Back to Swing and attend make-up and hairstyle courses. There are also retro barber shop services whose barbers evoke old Zagreb craft shaving that is, unfortunately, already somewhat forgotten.

During the festival there are also fashion shows where Croatian designers present creations inspired by fashion of the 40s, 50s and 60s. For the musical part of the Vintage Festival we have engaged the best local retro bands and DJs. – the organizer.

Last year I wasn`t able to attend so I was super excited when I was asked to participate this year as a pinup hostess. With few other girls we really did have fun and took lots of photos with many visitors and I have to say I enjoyed it very much and was sad when it all came to an end.

Unfortunately the weather was quite bad but it didn`t stop us from having a good time. The music, beauty and fashion booths, dance classes and mini vintage “flea market” made it all into one wonderful experience.

You can check it all out by visiting Vintage Zagreb festival Facebook page and this album, there are so many great amazing photos that truly take you back and you can feel the vintage vibe taking over.

Pink hair rockabilly

As you can see through these few days on Vintage Zagreb festival, I had the chance to play with looks and outfits, wigs and my “natural” mint green hair style. Not all the looks made the cut so here are some of my favorites.

The pastel pink wig is from Lush wigs, I recommend it with high praise and love, and if you need more info and details about it you should read my review here.

Although I wish Zagreb had a vintage festival as big as the one in UK or Viva Las Vegas, but I will take what I can get. It will always be too short and too good so we can at least make the best of it and enjoy it to the max.

And here is a lovely video so you can taste the vibe as if you were really there.

Little red riding hood pin-up photo shoot

For the past four years I have been toying with the idea of doing a Little red riding hood pin-up photo shoot. And after those long 4 years, I did it.

The idea was to chase the spooky and gloomy autumn sun rise and take advantage of all the fog hugging the sleepy surroundings. That was the idea, but the reality was – there was no fog in sight. At least not at the place we picked for our photo shoot.

That didn`t discourage us, we had fun and so did by-passers, fishermen and squirrels I guess. We ended up shooting in the forest, near the lake and on one 19 century tomb that served as a perfect, bit dark (one photo screams Assassins Creed) backdrop that went great with my red outfit.

Onward to Granny`s in the heart of the wood, she marched through the trees with basket and hood…

I have seen so many lovely Little red riding hood pin-up photos, not to mention cosplay themed ones, and countless illustrations inspired by the story.

My interpretation is somewhere between pin-up and weird, goofy and a bit dark me. Costume was made by me (cape and skirt), originally I intended to wear a white skirt but then I felt like a bride with a red cape so I changed to this red skirt.

Halloween inspiration part #2

Hello October you ghoulish month

The most ghoulish of all months is upon us and along with the pumpkin (spice latte) season, preparations for Halloween are in full mode. Halloween inspiration takes a new level each year and I always look forward to next season to see what will people (and clothing brands) come up with.

All I can say, I am never left disappointed.

Zombies, Demons and Witches too

Do you remember my last post about Halloween inspiration? This year I decided to browse the pretty dresses, skirts and everything pin-up fashion related instead of Halloween inspired costumes and decor like I did last year. If you need it, click it and check it out.

Here I have for you a sum of my favorite Halloween themed dresses and accessories, starting from British retro, then Sourpuss clothing, HellBunny and then some Erst Wilder to make your outfit really pop!

All the outfits are Halloween inspired, which means we have lots of dead and/or undead prints, hellish and devilish details, and of course it wouldn`t be Halloween without a drop of blood.

What did you decide to wear?

Fall comes in Carnival colors

Luna parks are not my kind of Carnival

As we all know fall is here and the colors begin to change.
But before my surroundings become gray, dull and lifeless, I decided to do a carnival themed shoot. Sunday afternoon felt like a perfect opportunity, especially since it was the last day this cute little Luna Park was nearby.

Unfortunately, it was more of a Luna park, modern and flashy themed than nice vintage looking with a true vibe and colors.
I was very disappointed, and looking back now, honestly – what did I expect?
And I almost gave up, but in the end we managed to take few photos, so the trip there wasn`t a total failure.

Stripes and red for a true Carnival vibe

If you ever browsed the word carnival then you know the staple colors of all the decor and visuals are – red and white. More importantly, the true carnival visual is red and white stripes.

Of course, nowadays you can see lots of carnival themed parties that can be, for example, pastel and let me tell you, they are pretty and have their own special vibe.

But, the old true vintage carnival vibe with red and white stripes, along with black lettering was what I was in the mood for. So, naturally I dressed up accordingly.
Added a bit of Disney vibe with a red scarf and a bow.

Can you tell I am wearing a wig?
It is my Bettie wig from Annabelles wigs, I had de-shined it a bit, and it turned out better than I expected. But it needs a bit more work.

How to de-shine a wig? I will tell you that in one of my upcoming posts so, stay tuned.

Writing this post made me think of a vintage carnival even more. So I browsed Pinterest and decided that first I should save my likes in this board (you are welcome) and that I should make a DIY carnival themed shoot. I am not sure if that will happen in 2016 since I would like to do it outside and by the time I finish with all the props, it will be too cold, gray and rainy outside. Possibly even covered in snow.
But it will happen.
Next spring/summer, guys.

The board if full of wonderful images, just amazing visuals and photography. Also I included DIY tips and tricks both for the general decor and food/prints.
I hope you like it and find it useful.
 
Cant wait to shoot that DIY-ed shoot! Spring come soon.
Until then, dont forget to come back for Halloween tips.

Halloween inspiration – part #1

`TIS THE SEASON TO BE GHOULISH

It is that time of the year. Time for layers, pumpkin spice latte (not me!) and Halloween inspiration posts and overall holiday preparation.
Last year I started with costume inspiration and I really went all out with so many choices and styles.Halloween is, alongside Christmas, and first day of spring, and summer and fall and winter, and of course my birthday – my favorite holiday of the year. Favorite day ever!
 
In fact I made two additional posts regarding Halloween inspiration, one as a costume inspiration sequel and one about food and home decor. If you missed them last year or need to refresh your memory (or pick something else for this year) go and check those posts out.
You can also do further research via my pinterest boards – one and two. Yup, I got you.
The boards contain lots of resources for an amazing Halloween experience, tutorials and how-to`s, DIYs and so much more than I initially posted last year.

Halloween outfits for your sinister afterlife

So, this year I decided to go in a different direction. It wouldn`t make any sense to repeat posts from last year. This year I will share my Halloween inspiration through outfit collages with garments that are currently available in our favorite vintage/pin up stores.
And let me tell you, the offer is huge. HUGE!
 
First I opened Lady V London`s shop and found out that although they don`t have a Halloween inspired dresses they have one that made my day and made the top of my list for next purchases. The CAT dress. And the cat is wearing cat-eye glasses. In my book, that is a must.
 
Back to the Halloween inspired outfits.
I opened few shops, silently making bets in my head which will have the best offer.
Do I need to say which one won?
Can you guess?
 
I will just say that after seeing what I saw, there was no way I could focus on anything else.
Needless to say I fell in love. So much I had to give this outfit a separate post.

Enter the PUG perfection.

There are no words to describe my awe.
Nor there is a need for them.
A picture is worth a thousand words.
But, if I were to pinpoint it I would say it is the stripes and the cut, but most of all, the one and only, goddess Micheline. `nuff said, right?
 
What do you think?
I got your attention and you want more? Stay tuned for my next post where I will share more Halloween inspiration. Many excellent and drool worthy outfits coming your way.

Cutie Pie candy floss pink wig from Lush wigs

It is here! Cutie Pie candy floss  pink wig

Cutie Pie candyfloss pink wig from Lush wigs

There is nothing more exciting than waiting for mailman and your parcel. You keep picturing it, how it will feel and look. I was so excited and now, finally it is here, my Cutie Pie candy floss pink wig from Lush wigs. And I am beyond words. I have looked for a perfect pink wig for some time now, and what I found was OK but not really what I was looking for. Honestly, I wasn`t even sure what I was looking for, but I knew what I found so far was not it.

The truth is, the “selling” photo of this wig was not the one that made me buy it. It was the one a customer posted on her Instagram and Lush wig’s re-posted it that in fact made me jump up and down from joy screaming – MINE!
I found it! Finally this is it and I need to have it. But it was out of stock. Sure I was annoying to the people at Lush wigs, but they were so kind and wonderful with me. It took them few weeks to put it back in stock and I was like a hawk, waiting for it.

Wig feels

The wig is simply wonderful. I like the quality much more than the wigs I purchased before from Annabelle`s wigs. It is sleek and rich, does not tangle so much just by looking at it (my copper Kelly is really prone to tangles). The wig feels so heavy but is really nice and comfortable on head and does not feel heavy while wearing.

What I liked the most on the photo that made me buy it was how rich this wig looked. Beyond words. Simply enchanting.

Details:

Cutie Pie candy floss pink wig, made from synthetic high temperature fibre is perfect for making alterations like straightening it or making it more curly. I love it just the way it is.

The color is – special. Cream and pink, blonde with dipped ends, but at the same time it looks like it is pink all the way. I say – magic!

The wig is 65 cm long, perfectly bouncy and endlessly seductive. It comes with a fringe (blunt cut, that you can alter) that is quite long so I chopped it of to a version of Bettie bangs.

Cutie Pie wig from Lush wigs

This photo is with original longer fringe, and it still looks really good. I decided on cutting them because they were a bit too long for me and were getting in my eyes. Maybe my head is a bit funky sized so they ended up longer for me than they would be for someone else.

Good thing we can alter them, cut a bit to fit them to your specific needs. Just don’t cut too much. There is no coming back from an over cut fringe.

The End

What is the verdict?
All in all my experience with Lush wigs was beyond great even before my wig arrived. They have an amazing supporting system for buyers,w where you can track your purchase daily and know exactly what is happening. It is an UK based company so my wig came really fast (I am EU based).

I will be ordering another wig from Lush wigs soon. Currently I have my heart set on few designs – Caramel, Cherry Lipgloss, Natural Angel, Apple, Fortune Teller, Crystal Ball.
It looks like I am going to go bankrupt soon. I am free for any wig donations. Kidding. But seriously.

To end this review, I am very satisfied with my purchase. The ratio of price and quality is, in my opinion the best so far. The wig is more than affordable, and the overall feel, texture and wear-ability of the wig is superb. I would highly recommend it.
