Becoming Iconic: Posh eclectic!

This is my personal style.
Posh eclectic is glamour with a wink! If one tries to sum up the posh eclectic in one word it would be anachronistic!

One can either fearlessly layer different decades of style in an outfit or you can stick to a particular retro style and glam it up. Goth, Broth, and Rockabilly chicks easily fall in this iconic style. Normal rules of fashion just don’t apply with this style. Day to evening is more like evening to day dressing.

Is this me?
Choose this style if you would dare wear an evening dress in the daytime and love elegant retro clothing! I took the steampunk style test and I was thrilled at the results:

Your result for The Steampunk Style Test…

The Aristocrat

89% Elegant, 31% Technological, 27% Historical, 20% Adventurous and 31% Playful!

You are the Aristocrat, the embodiment of steampunk elegance and poise. For you, dressing steampunk is first and foremost about simply looking good, with accessories and details to follow. However, this does not mean that you ignore the demands of creating a “steampunk look.” Your outfits weave together a balance between technology and style, and between period accuracy and beautiful anachronism. While your fashion inspiration may come from anywhere across the Victorian social spectrum, you always find a way to make your outfit beautiful. You will probably be found in the clothes of the steam age elite simply because of the greater elegance available to them. Chances are you dress this way because you like it, and you would still dress in this manner even if steampunk was not a popular interest.

freshly washed sheital

Some people wash their sheitals while it’s pinned on the wig head. I didn’t this time. I just washed it like my synthetic wigs. I soaked it in lukewarm soapy water (I used Pantene) for five minutes. Rinsed really well and lightly finger combed. I gently finger combed the Color Vive conditioner into the sheital. I left the conditioner in for 5 minutes. I rinsed very well again. Gently squeezed the water out and patted the wig dry with a towel. Then I used a nickel-sized dollop of Silicon Mix leave in conditioner. I used it more towards the ends of the hair not the roots. I did blow dry it on the lowest setting on my hair dryer. When it was 80% dry, I used the cool setting.

I didn’t set it yet.

time to eat the donuts!

I seriously hate belts.

I really do.
Separates are my BFF.
I avoid belts more than any clothing item.
Here’s why:

this is a belt at my natural waist

same belt below the waistline

The upside is that it shows that my waist is getting a teeny bit tinier. A teeny bit!

up-do attempt #3

Hubster says that my pony sheital has become the wig I “mess around with!”

Sadly, I have to say that this is true.

yeishlitikvah mentioned topsy tail in my first up-do post. Then boobalah mentioned in a later post that she does a DIY topsy tail by hand! So I said to myself, “Self…you must hack topsy tail for yourself” I am not a hair person. Not in the slightest. Because I’m clueless, I googled for easy up-dos to hack.

I found the tipsy tail! So easy, even a klutz like me did pretty well on the first go round! All I did was just lightly brushed my sheital to get some tangles out. Then, I spray some of my easi style gel spritz to control the flyaways and style the bangs. Finally, I used my wig pick to smooth the ponytail.

There once was a girl who wore a Tipsy Tail

Milano wigs (review)

Milano is a brand it seems that people either LOVE or HATE! Generally, buying sheitals is a matter of mazel (luck!) I think the best time to go it during a sale… you can look and no one will pressure you. My pony sheital was $475 (not precut)

I wear my pony sheital using the front and back combs. I don’t use the side clips closed because that hurts! I just open them up and use them like combs. It really helps the sideburn “pieces” to lay flatter! Obviously you don’t have to use all of the clips or combs.

up-do attempt #2

I only had big bobby pins so I had to hack it a little. Seriously, I think I’m enjoy playing with my sheital a little too much! Too many viewings of Star Wars and Sailor Moon 😉

I’m curious to see what hannahsarah thinks of this one…
again I pinned it to the wig head to style it because I can’t lift my stupid arms. Too much yontif scrubbing.
