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!

You should get sun shades popped in those bad boys, they were totally cute.

Ooh, I love your hair. Someday I'm going to try this. My hair still needs to grow a tad more, though.

Nice glasses, I've been looking for cat-eye ones for ages but the only ones I've found have been boring 60's frames...

i was at a party and this guy kept wandering in and out of the kitchen where i was, and he had no lenses in his glasses. everytime i saw him, it bothered me so much, i just wanted to poke him in the eye.

Your hair looks so pretty! :) I still have to master sleeping in pincurls; half the time I do over night sets like that, I don't get a wink of sleep! Plus, I think my husband would think it very odd if I went to bed like that. hehe!

I get comments like that all the time when I wear my hair in a vintage style (usually along the lines of: is that all your own hair?). I always wonder what the heck people are thinking when they say something like that! But then again, we all have moments when something comes out the wrong (or just plain awkward!) way. ;)
