I’m pretty certain that this summer is going to cause me to lose my mind. One day, Southern CA is 100 degrees and humid, the next it’s almost chilly during the day and freezing cold at night. And it’s nearly August. I never know how to dress any more!!
We headed out to a tiny car show last weekend, then did some cruising around town with a couple of other cars and some really awesome people. I wore an outfit very similar to what I wore for the recent rat rod show, with the exact same top in a very different color . I added lace fingerless gloves and a necklace. The skirt is similar also, but I like this one much better. More about it in one of my previous posts from way back! So glad I brought the blazer again (yes, same blazer as the last car show), although long sleeves would have been nice! I ended up wearing Mr. Kitty’s Dickies jacket for the last hour of the evening!
I invented another fun center-part hair style. This one also requires the use of synthetic hairpieces (unless you have short, thick hair and are okay with lots of teasing). I used the Glamarama pieces by Dancing with the Stars. I find this highly amusing, as I am pretty sure they never thought their products would appeal to Goths and they certainly didn’t intend for TWO to be used at once. Let me proudly state now that I never have seen and never will see that show, and would almost be ashamed of myself for buying into their gimmicks… But I look at it like this: capitalist gimmick or not, if it benefits me I win in the end. And I used Sally Beauty coupons for them, so double-win! The style is simple: just create two high pigtails, wrap them into buns, and clip these hairpieces on top of the buns!
