Hello my lovelies!
As I mentioned before, I started a 52 week Lolita challenge, but I was way too tired last time and I haven't wrote a first post from the list. Today is the last day and my last chance to start my challenge. I let my boyfriend to choose first topic and he chose number 31: Impulse buys that were totally worth it.
HAIR EXTENSIONSI think this was one of my impulse buys, just to try if they will suit me or not. I bought a full wig once but it I didn't like it at all. I have very thick and long natural hair and it was a big challenge to try to fit it all under a wig cap and the wig itself. I got the wig from Linea Storia shop from Rakuten. It was lovely, just way to small for me :( I sold the wig and I got hugely discouraged by this experience. I thought that I will be forced to style my natural hair for hours before meets, until I discovered hair extensions. I had seen Kyra wearing styled long curled ponytails and she always looked amazing and I thought, why not try it?
First I got myself fringe and half wig, same again from Linea Storia, because I already knew which colour to choose. I worn both to the big Tea Party event, featuring Juliette et Justine in 2012.

But this is not the end of the story! Since then I got so hooked up on half wigs and extensions, that now I have three half wigs, two simple hair extensions, two pairs of ponytails, one clip on and one tied one; two wig ropes, and two pairs of scrunchy elastic pony tails. And fake braided hair bands :) And I think I will be buying more because it's such a simple and a quick way to style your hair. Wigs are beautiful and I am kind of jealous of other Lolitas who can wear them, but they just don't work for me. I like my natural hair more and I want to grow them to be as long as possible. Plus I can't find wigs that are stretchy enough to fit my hair...

Buying my first fake fringe and half wig actually changed my life and I think it made me look much better as a Lolita. I became a bit more confident with my look and I accept my face more than before :) I can totally recommend getting hair extensions to anyone who doesn't like wigs but would like to style hair in a different way. They are cheap and come in so many styles. Plus you won't feel so hot in the summer like when wearing wig!
I hope you all enjoyed my first post from "Lolita 52 week challenge", I hope I did it right!
Till the next time!
