First pin curl attempt.
I tried out pin curls for the first time last night, which were actually not uncomfortable to sleep in as I thought they would be. When I first took them out I thought I did something wrong, I just looked like a swamp monster. But after brushing and mouseing is tamed to something I liked. Kind of an average 40s look. A woman at work asked "is that your real hair?". I suppose that is flattering, but is that really the kind of question you ask a complete stranger? What if it wasn't and I was self conscious about it? Hmmmm. Think on that lady. Think on that.
On my way to work I stopped by the optometrist and asked if they could pop out the lenses in my vintage glasses. I thought I would have to get the lenses totally replaced, something that costs quite a bit, so not planning on it anytime soon. At Magpie the other day all of their vintage frames besides the sunglasses are just frames, no lenses. The owner was actually wearing a pair of just frames and I didn't even notice, so I was convinced all I needed to do was have them popped out. The lady had to do something special to them to get them out, apparently the older glasses were very well made (surprise surprise). But she didnt charge me, which was nice :) Sam pretended they were a moustache. Silly Sam.
Speaking of moustaches, my friends Kendra and Irene opened a shop on Etsy with some fabulous vintage, check out fingerstaches soon!
