‘WINGES’ and Hair Feathers

Winter is coming and maybe you want to try a new hair do, a fringe perhaps? But what if you don’t like it? All that annoying regrowth!?

Fear not ladies I have found you a solution.

WINGES (fringe wigs)

I first heard about this trend a while back when Leigh Lezark tried them out:

Before.

After.

Here are the ‘Winges’ I have found for you 🙂 :

Hershesons

This company also make fake ponytails, hair bows, braids etc (check out their website http://www.hershesons.com/homepage).  Their ‘winges’ come in two styles;

1.Sharp

2. Rock Chick

At £30 each its about the same price as getting your hair cut and blow-dried, worth it I think for a no-worry change of hair style.  Both winge styles come in an array of colours, aswell as some fun colours – available at Hershesons at ASOS.com:

This red one and the mauve one are £14!

Bitching and Junkfood

Have also jumped on this trend with their Two Weeks textile fringe, £50:

and Two Weeks Chinchilla fringe, £70:

Hair feathers

Another fun trend which I spotted on some girlies at Creamfields a few weeks ago, were feather hair extensions.  They have been out in america for quite some time – here’s Miley Cyrus sporting them:

Now they’re out in the UK – check out http://www.hairfeathers.co.uk/

A pack of hair feathers ranges from £14.99 – £19.99 and they come in lots of different colours.

Hope you enjoyed this little hair – special.  Any questions, suggestions etc feel free to email me or post on the facebook page! 🙂

Festival treats

It’s oxegen time! and if you haven’t got the full four-day camping ticket you still have some time to grab some things before you go, aswell as some treats for any other festivals still to come!

Here are some fun things I’ve found 🙂

How gorgeous is this rain poncho from irregular choice!?  I love the print.  The best part about it though, is that it packs away into a little bunny shaped bag!!  Click here to see it.

It also comes in a navy sequin print – see below:

Equally is gorgey-porgey I think.  Both £48 each at irregularchoice.com –click here

I love this stack of bracelets from ASOS, £10 –click here.  However I’ve recently learnt how to make pom poms – they’re really easy!  Below are the pom poms I made a few days ago:

In my next post I’ll show you how to make them and try to make a little bracelet out of them.  All you’ll need is some wool in the colours you want the pom poms, some cardboard (a cereal packet will do) and a pair of scissors :).

I’m a big fan of face paints for festivals – so much fun.  I bought this set last weekend in preparation for Creamfields which I’m going to in August.  It’s a bit early, I know, but I love face painting anyway so it doesn’t matter :).  A few days ago I took my little sister to see Pirates of the Caribbean, and she decided she’d like to be painted as a witch for the occasion.  A bit random, but sure why not I guess!  Here she is:

freaky deakie! –  I painted new, witchy eyes on her eyelids 😀

I love this little bandeau/shorts combo!  It’ll see you through from beach to festival: throw on over your bikini with sandals for the beach/ add a raincoat, leather fringe bag, a pair of grubby wellies and big shades for festival.  £26 from TOPSHOP – click here.

Najavo print socks – so pretty! £8 from URBAN OUTFITTERS – click here.

I was having a bit of a struggle trying to find a cheap rucksack that was big enough to fit all my festival gear in – but small enough to fit the regulations for hand luggage on my flight to liverpool for creamfields.  We didn’t book luggage on as it was working out at an extra £30 :/.  Thankfully I remembered I have this lovely rucksack I used to use as my school bag 🙂 I got mine from TK MAXX and they often have some nice jansport bags in there.

To the left is another backpack I found on the tk-maxx website – £14.99, which is really cheap compared to some of the other ones I’ve seen.  It’s a good size too.  Click here.

I bought this glitter palette from URBAN OUTFITTERS yesterday – perfect for adding a bit of  glam.  It’s in the sale for £4!  Click here.  Below is some glittery eye makeup inspiration.

I don’t really like the shape of the glitter around this models eyes, I think it’s too panda-like.  But the idea of the grungy glittery eye is cool and really easy to do.  Also it will look better as it smudges :).  This image is from the Vena Cava A/W 2011 catwalk.

How fun is this mohawk hat from RIVER ISLAND!? perfect if your feeling a bit chilly/having a hair crisis.  It also comes in black. £24.99 – click here.  They also have a very girly indian headdress for £29.99:

pretty, isn’t it :)?  Click here.

These Bitching and Junkfood shorts are amazing, but I still thing £60 for a pair of shorts is a bit much :/ – check out my previous post on their launch at URBAN OUTFITTERS last month here.  and click here to see the shorts.

Poi (seen above) are super fun – I’m bringing mine to creamfields.  See them below:

I got mine from Barcelona – but you can buy them from the internet if you’re interested.  Here’s a youtube video of some basic poi spinning :).

That’s all for today folks – hope you enjoyed it + if you have any questions just post on my facebook page!

Bitching and Junkfood Launch @ URBAN OUTFITTERS

I was given this flyer about 2 weeks ago and made a little note in my diary to get down to Urban Outfitters for it. I’d seen some of Bitching and Junkfood’s stuff before on their website (http://www.bitchingandjunkfood.com/)  and thought it was class so I was excited to see if they were bringing out any new or exclusive things for U.O.

Also I love getting a wee goodie bag, 20% off everything in store and a free west coast cooler ‘citra’ to boot!

When I walked in and saw the B & JF clothes stall I got v. excited, there was a lot of high waisted/bright yellow/shredded/studded/printed/bleached denim short shorts – I am a big fan of short shorts.  there were also vintage band t-shirts that had been shredded up and bleached + shoulder pads added etc.  It was like realllly edgy vintage renewal.

So of course I pretty much picked up one of each item in my size (much to everyone’s annoyance I’m guessing as each garment is sort of unique).

These are the first shorts I tried on.  I looooove the the big spikey studding detail and they were such a nice fit.  I was like oh myyy gotta have these!

But then.

I looked.

At the price tag…

£80.

Eighty quid! I mean… WHAT!?  I looked down and in a moment of weakness still considered buying them.  I then mentally slapped myself.

It wasn’t so much the actual price that annoyed me, it’s what they are charging it for.  These shorts are literally a pair of vintage, high waisted trousers (which you can get from any good charity or vintage shop) that someone has cut off, added studs to, and shredded a wee bit with a cheese grater.   and I know, they look really good!  But why pay £80 for something you could easily do yourself?

Here are more of the shorts:

Ranging from £65 – £80..

Below is one of the shredded t-shirts:

Again this shredded top is right up my street.  I love the brown/grey pattern that has been done by bleaching the material, the Bob Marley image, the shape, everything..except for.. you guessed it.  The price tag.

Guess how much.

Not worth it.

Especially when right next door, BIG BANG VINTAGE are selling lovely shredded vintage tees for £20 a pop:

But to be honest chums you can do this yourself.  It’s as simple as taking a pair of scissors and cutting the bottom half into strips..literally.  (check out my last post for a little inspiration).

I want to clarify that I’m not dissing Urban Outfitters, it’s one of my favourite shops.  Bitching and Junkfood’s designs are gorgeous but I would only be willing to pay half the price of what they’re selling for!

In the next week, or maybe the week after next as I’m going to Barcelona next Wednesday – yeha! I’m going to try and make shorts and t-shirts based on Bitching and Junkfood’s designs.  I’ve already been into Fresh Garbage and ordered myself some spikes!

Menswear – Festivals

I feel as though I’ve been neglecting the menswear side of things! In this post I wanted to look at Festival style for boys.

Obviously there are different types of festival (e.g. oxegen/planet love) which require a totally different fashion etiquite.  For this post I wanted to look at boys style for a rock/indie festival.  I’ve hunted around and comprised an outfit + accessories in 10 items; enjoy!
