Friday Bargain Bin: Festival Edition


Hi-Lo Ruffled Flounce Dress, $34 (was $89)
Are you headed to a Ren faire/bluegrass festival/bachelorette weekend in the woods anytime soon? This will be the foundation of your "dressy outfit." [UPDATE: OMG they raised the price suddenly to $49. I smell a mole!]


Clarks Harwich Middy Slingback Sandal, $61.15 (were $89.95)
Look, we're all well aware of the number of flip-flops and hiking shoes you're packing. That's fine! Just leave room for these in case. And they come in a camel color AND ONLY VERY LARGE SIZES.


A History of Europe by J.M. Roberts Audio Book, FREE with a 30-day free trial of Audible (was $45.47)
Do not forget to cancel your Audible subscription if you're not using it! Other than that there are no downsides to listening to this during long road trips. There's even a British accent.


Eight LED Keychains, $10.97
Be the most popular festival companion by gifting all your pals with these absolutely necessary, tiny, adorable flashlights that cost you next-to-nothing.


T by Alexander Wang Slub Muscle T, $38.25 (was $85)
You pretty much never have to change your shirt if this is the one you're wearing. Seriously, I've gone liiike 36 hours maybe? Shhh...


Nail Rock Bleached Neon Nail Wraps, $5.45 (were $12.18)
Pros: make you look "with it," last longer than regular polish, and won't stink up the car when you decide to emergency-change your nail polish on the highway.


Breil Sunglasses, $25 (were $130)
Wear cheap sunglasses that aren't your normal style. You're around strangers who won't judge and if you accidentally (or on purpose?) drop them in someone's barf, you can just walk away.


Sauve Dry Shampoo, $2.74 (was $3.49)
Personally, though it works well to absorb oil, I think this smells too much. It's lemony or something? BUT, during a weekend away around a bunch of stinky heads, you'll be thankful.


Vidal Sassoon Large Claw Clips, $3.39 (were $4.89)
These will get loaned out and broken, so grab a bunch.


Open Knit Dolman Sweater, $8.99 (was $17.80)
You're going to get cold, so throw this and this...:


Dip-Dyed Border Scarf, $9.99 (was $49)
...into this.:

The Worldcitizen Bag, $15
For one, you need a cheap, cool-looking tote for all your water bottles, hand sanitizer, condoms, and warm clothing, but you also want one you can destroy without worrying about it. For two, this one benefits an amazing organization!


Compressible Travel Pillow, $17.99
Throw this in that bag too, while you're at it. Unfortunately, there's no way to know for certain where you'll be sleeping.

Ren faire/bluegrass/bachelorette in the woods sounds like my ideal weekend, yo.

Also, those sunglasses! I want, but I am blind and would need prescription lenses, and I am poor. Zennioptical and other cheap online retailers will tint lenses for you, but they'll just look like tinted glasses since they're only normal frames. Ugh, not the same.

Is pouting an appropriate response?

QuiteAmiable

@VolcanoMouse I am a total non-fashionista, but I just buy large sunglasses and wear them over my regular glasses. Yep. I'm that person.

samafaye

@QuiteAimable my boyfriend does this. it is adorable.

emily deckerson

@QuiteAimable I used to do this, too, but I bought these: http://www.39dollarglasses.com/3299_Black.html and had the lenses tinted and they are awesome! My peripherals really appreciate the reduction of plastic.

heroicdestinysquad

@VolcanoMouse I was just complaining about this on Tumblr, and WarbyParker will put prescription lenses in their super cute sunglasses. You just have to contact them first I think? This is my plan for the summer as last summer I just got a pair of Zenni glasses with tinted lenses and they were not cute. Alternatively, I wear the over the glasses sunglasses that they give to old people for driving and all people post-eye surgery and I love them. I feel like the Terminator. I'd be delighted if that look could become a trend because its the best.

amateur hour

@heroicdestinysquad yeah! My Warby Parker prescription sunglasses came last week and they are the shit. Affordable but not as cheap as zenni. They are $150 for prescription, polarized sunglasses which I think is a great deal. And very nice quality. In Philly (and a few other major cities) they have a showroom where you can try them on first to see if you like.

I bought Zenni sunglasses first, too, and they were supposed to be oversized, but then weren't oversized, so they just did not do what sunglasses are supposed to do, which is make you look cool. Big waste of $45 and I don't think you can return to Zenni! Warby Parker has a 30 day no questions asked return policy.

VolcanoMouse

@amateur hour Ooh! That's a bit more than I was wanting to shell out (I am a notorious loser of umbrellas, etc), but I have heard good things about Warby Parker. I shall investigate.

Zenni won't even let me order big ol' sunglasses: my pupilary distance is too small for the "oversized" frames. My heart is less broken, though, knowing that they're rather a waste!

MKE
MKE

One more vote for Warby Parker. If you're in the US they will send you 5 frame styles at a time for you to try for a week (free shipping both ways!) so you don't have to make any guesses. I love both of my pairs. And more importantly, did you see their April Fool's Day website?? --> http://warbybarker.com/

billie_crusoe

@VolcanoMouse You can probably find a cheap-ish big box optometrist / glasses store around you, maybe? We have Eyeglass World, and I got 2 pair of glasses for $78, plus $80 to polarize a pair. So I got a regular pair and a pair of sunglasses for $160. Not great, but polarized prescription sunglasses are a lifesaver for me! But I can get at least a couple of years out of a pair, so there's that.

New Hoarder

Yay, I've been sick so I need it all. Especially that TEAL travel pillow.

Exene

For real though, do NOT forget to cancel your Audible subscription, cuz that shit is extortionate.

wee_ramekin

Guys, this is what it sounds like when doves cry.

Kristen

@Exene I also found it weirdly difficult to cancel? I can't remember what the specific issue was (this was years ago, in audible's early days, so maybe they've fixed it by now) but I remember trying like three separate times and finally having to call a toll-free number to make it happen. ARGH.

Jinxie

@Kristen Me too! I went to cancel, couldn't find the "cancel now" button or whatever (and I looked all over the dang site); more time passed, I acquired another download credit and then, strangely, the "cancel now" button appeared plain as the nose on my face. So, apparently, you can't cancel unless you're willing to give up a credit? Shady!

thenotestaken

@Exene Argh and cancelling is awful, it's hard to even find out how to start the process and then once you've said you want to cancel you have to go through like three or four screens full of ads for their bonuses. And at the bottom of each screen there's a little tiny link to continue the cancellation process, and you have to get through all of them without being fooled into thinking you've canceled already. Plus you have to download their specific Audible player, you can't just use iTunes or whatever.

She was a retail whore

@Exene How recently did you stop using Audible. In the past two months I've transferred several of their titles to iTunes and then to my iPod without any difficulty. I've only been using Audible for a few months, though, so I wouldn't know if it was more difficult to do this in the past.

ylime

I love those sunglasses, but the lenses are too light for me. I prefer "asshole dark" sunglasses. You can't see my expression but I can see yours!

Also, as a jr. bargain hunter I can tell you that Nordstrom Rack has crazy cheap designer sunglasses. That come with their own free case! This is how the 1% live!

mabellegueule

@ylime I consider $25 for sunglasses expensive!

NeverOddOrEven

@mabellegueule Holla.

angermonkey

@mabellegueule Me too, especially considering the number of pairs I have left all over this country, and a few other countries.

HereKitty

So glad I'm an Old right now. I know where I'm sleeping tonight--a comfy bed, indoors.

dj pomegranate

@HereKitty With my cat. Yup.

Jinxie

@HereKitty There is an awful lot to be said for NOT sleeping in a sleeping bag in mud, and even more to be said for easy access to a proper bathroom and flush toilet.

Verity

@Jinxie There really is. (I don't even have my age as an excuse. I think, as a 22-year-old, I'm meant to be all over this festival stuff. But my bed is great!)

Ophelia

Elaine, are you...are you wearing a mullet? A long, black, ruffled mullet?

frigwiggin

@Ophelia "Maybe, Gary! If I am it's only because the lights are out and you took all the LED keychains for making shadow puppets! That doesn't even LOOK like a giraffe, Gary!"

sarah girl

@frigwiggin Okay, I have to ask - what the hell is this Elaine/Gary business? I see it in so many comments sections, and it confuses me so much...

SuperGogo

@Sarah H. Gary and Elaine are the stars of the amazing and hilarious catalogliving.net. Read and enjoy!

frigwiggin

@Sarah H. And Ophelia and SuperGogo I and anybody else who feels like joining in have fun on Fridays doing Gary/Elaine improv with whatever items are in the bargain bin! I know it's silly, but I love it.

Fig. 1 (formerly myfanwy)

@Sarah H. "God, Elaine, now they're talking about us. I told you not to use that awful lemon hairspray!"

sarah girl

@SuperGogo Ohhhh okay, it all makes sense now! Ahh, that site is great.

And I didn't mean any judgement!! I was just curious :)

MoonBat

@frigwiggin I LIVE FOR YOUR GARY/ELAINE FRIDAY CONVERSATIONS. NEVER STOP.
YES I AM SHOUTING, SORRY!

frigwiggin

@Fig. 1 (formerly myfanwy) "Are you sure it's not your neon nail wraps, Gary? I told you that highlighter orange wasn't your color!"

frigwiggin

@MoonBat <3 u, Moonie

PistolPackinMama

@MoonBat Elaine, I am pretty sure the neighbors SHOUTING in the next apartment is because they can't hear themselves over your "turn it up to eleven" playing of European History, okay?

frigwiggin

@PistolPackinMama "Whatever, Gary! Maybe if you stopped putting claw clips on my ears while I'm asleep I'd be able to hear better! Ever think of that? Huh? That's not what claw clips are for, Gary!"

MoonBat

@PistolPackinMama Gary, darling, I gave them scarves to wrap over their heads if the noise disturbs them. I am nothing if not a thoughtful neighbor.

Ophelia

@all <3 u guys! too many meetings today to have much fun :(

but my office is wearing pajamas for a fund raiser, so that made it a little better :)

Faintly Macabre

@MoonBat Elaine, I'm pretty sure I saw them stuff those scarves in the disposable totes you gave them. Not everyone shares your...taste.

MoonBat

@Faintly Macabre Oh MY GOD, Gary you cannot be serious, please hand me my compressible pillow, I think I need to lie down....

PistolPackinMama

@MoonBat Well, ELAINE, I would. Except, I am busy chh chh chh-ing the coffee stain out of my camel colored t-shirt, on account of the red wine you dumped on it while telling that story about losing your lovingly Sharepinned lip gloss in the BEAR PIT.

EpWs

@PistolPackinMama BEAR PIT

KellyStitzel

I like that dress, and that it comes in bigger sizes, but my unemployed aspiring comedian ass has no weekly allowance anymore. Blerg.

out of order

@KellyStitzel I love that dress so much, aside from the fact I can't open the link for some reason, I don't think it would look right on my fat ass, and that makes me sad.

Plus... I'm unemployed and shouldn't be spending money on dresses.

What a cruel world.

iceberg

@out of order - aside from the economical concerns and the fact that I have no idea what size your ass actually is, I actually think that dress would be flattering to the generously-proportioned lady, because it loks quite floaty and drapey...

KellyStitzel

@iceberg Agreed. I'm on the curvier side and I think that dress would look great on me (especially because of the empire waste). I'd have to wear it with a sweater or jacket, though, because of my matronly upper arms issues.

out of order

@iceberg Very true! I was referring more to my own particular body silhouette.
And it might be a little trying to talk myself out of hunting it down on the web because I would Oh so like to "flounce" everywhere.

TheCheesemanCometh

@KellyStitzel I just bought it! Imagine my shock when I put it in the "cart", and the additional discout took it down to $24.99!?! Even with standard shipping rates (ugh, Amamzon Prime has me SO spoiled) it was still only a grand total of $35. SO worth it, since I need to start dressing like the person I want/need to be, rather than the schlub I currently am. I just hope I don't look like a tool in it. Or pregnant. Curse you, apple shape!

sophia_h

@TheCheesemanCometh Damn, the dress is even more on sale than listed? I am so, so tempted by it -- I randomly bought a black dress with a similar silhouette a few months ago and forgot about it, and then I threw it on for Seder the other night and got SO many compliments and it was SO comfy! The only thing I'm concerned about is that it will be too long in a 14/16, and that the top will be too low-cut (hard to buy things when you're short and relatively flat-cheated but need larger sizes).

mbeth

@sophia_h Agreed. I love the dress, just wish it hit at/above the knee. I'm scared of the tent effect.

KellyStitzel

Ugh, did you guys see Jane's note that they raised the price? Jerkfaces.

insouciantlover

@KellyStitzel they did, but there's still 50% off the entire site so it comes to $24.50. NOBODY PANIC!

TheCheesemanCometh

@sophia_h Yeah, I am tall, so I don't have a length issues, but the boobage, argh! I have to be so careful when buying lower cut things, or I wind up being refered to as "The Girl With the Boobs". And given my age and parental status, that's not really what I'm aiming for.

KellyStitzel

@TheCheesemanCometh No matter how hard I try not to be, I will never escape being "The Girl with the Boobs."

meganmaria

I love that Suave dry shampoo. It is the shit. It is super fragrant, though.

backstagebethy

@meganmaria Yeah I use it allll the time, it's my favorite product. And at least the fragrance is more pleasant than Ojai, which I think smells like anise and it makes me want to puke. But really, love the Suave.

whereismyrobot

@meganmaria So this actually works? I have looked everywhere for a dry shampoo that works. Most just make a sort of roux on my bangs.

meganmaria

@whereismyrobot I mostly use it on my bangs because those tend to get grosser than the rest of my hair if I put off my showers for a day or two. I've been pleased with the results. It doesn't make it "freshly washed", but it makes it not greasy and I can style them a bit better.

I've also heard that you can spray a bit on bobby pins to get them to stay put better.

NeverOddOrEven

@meganmaria I tried one in a can once and it lasted about oh, 6 sprays? I think it was a different brand but I've heard similar complaints about this one.
Have you not had that problem? 'Cause for now I'm sticking to baby powder.

whereismyrobot

@meganmaria Sometimes I will only wash my bangs, which was a miracle when I thought of this idea.

whereismyrobot

@NeverOddOrEven Was it TIGI? I bought that one a few years ago and the same thing happened. That was a shame though, because it worked better than any I have tried.

NeverOddOrEven

@whereismyrobot That or Got2B. Something with a busy can, I think.

Canard

@meganmaria I am actually not super impressed with the Suave -- it smells SO MUCH and the greasiness comes back with a vengeance after like 2 hours, regardless of how sweaty/hormonal/etc I am. The best results I've had were with a can of nice body powder that smelled like cucumber melon instead of babies and also lasted me something like 6 years.

mangosara

@NeverOddOrEven this literally just happened to me. I used it twice (TWICE!) and now it's all empty. I wash my hair with Herbal Essences so $6 was a splurge... agh. so sad.

NeverOddOrEven

@mangosara Yea, I think 6 was a generous estimate. It was probably closer to 3 : (

MilesofMountains

@NeverOddOrEven Got2B did the same to me. I got all of one use out of it. All the other dry shampoos I have been able to find in the store are either just hairspray or have HFCs,so I have resorted to sprinkling clay power on my hair. It actually works really well, but my hair feels so gross if I touch it.

Daisy Razor

Are any of the dry shampoos unscented? I generally don't mind the scents, but they are strong enough that they compete with any other type of perfume I try to put on.

missvancity

@Daisy Razor Unscented baby powder!

null

@Daisy Razor I use Klorane which isn't scented, but is a bit more expensive.

null

@klaus Wait, I lied. According to The Internet it is scented and I apparently no longer have the ability to smell?

ceeemcee

@Daisy Razor Oscar Blandi doesn't smell like anything, I don't think. Just that general aerosol-y kind of smell, but it doesn't linger in your hair.

JennyM

@Daisy Razor I use the Frederic Fekkai Au Naturel Dry Shampoo (pretty sure I bought it based on Hairpin advice), and to my nose it's unscented though it does list fragrance as an ingredient. It's a powder rather than a spray, so maybe that helps hide any sort of smell?

Daisy Razor

@ceeemcee I wonder if Oscar Blandi has more than one type, because the dry shampoo I had from them smelled like I was applying lemons directly to my head.

@klaus Well, it can't be a very strong smell if it's applied that close to your nose and you don't notice it!

Megasus

@Daisy Razor Yeah I've used the Oscar Blandi one and it was super smelly

NeverOddOrEven

@Daisy Razor Corn starch!

null

@Daisy Razor With Khlorane it might also be the difference between the aerosol and the powder -- I use the powder.

null

@NeverOddOrEven Man, I really wanted this to work, but corn starch / baby powder / cocoa powder does not brush out of my hair the same way the "pro" stuff does.

NeverOddOrEven

@klaus Is it supposed to brush out? I kinda figured it doesn't soak up the oil that fast. But I guess I also kinda like the feeling it leaves in my hair.
On a somewhat related note, I've been doing the No 'Poo thing for at least a year and my hair only starts to look greasy after the better part of a week. So not needing the dry shampoo much anymore.
Being a lazy hippie I highly recommend it to anyone who is interested!

PistolPackinMama

@klaus cocoa... powder... in hair? My mind is blown. (I would have to use paprika...)

hulia

@Daisy Razor I used the non-spray Oscar Blandi and had the same problem, which is definitely putting me off buying the Suave version. Bumble & Bumble's don't smell (to my nose, anyway), though with the brunette one, I've found I have to be careful about running my fingers through my hair, since the color from the powder can get all over my hands.

anachronistique

@Daisy Razor I've been trying out the Dove one after the Suave gave me a wicked headache, and it smells like a very vague powdery scent that goes away pretty quickly. Works decently well.

null

@NeverOddOrEven Yeah, the instructions on my Khlorane powder say to brush it out. I have dark hair so if I didn't brush out the corn starch it would have an... interesting effect. I read somewhere that dark haired ladies should try use cocoa powder instead, but that stuff was almost worst in terms of visibility for me. Worth a shot if you have it sitting around in your cupboards though!

Killerpants

@Daisy Razor Lulu Organics hair powder is awesome. It has a scent but at least in the little sample I have it's very mild - I never smell it after I use it. My hair is medium brown and it doesn't show up powdery in my hair. It is, however, pretty damn expensive. The one I linked to is for a small 1 oz size, the full size is $30! Ouch. Would last for about ever though I'd think.

TheRisottoRacket

@klaus When I used Klorane it worked amazingly but I got multiple bottles that only had a few sprays worth before they were done, so I stopped buying 'em.

I use Kevin Murphy dry shampoo now. I got it at my local salon here in Chicago (I mention that because I haven't seen it anywhere else), and it works really well! it does have a weird kind of vanilla smell but it wears off pretty fast.

SuperMargie

That Suave dry shampoo is soooo lemonyfloweryohmigodWHATISIT, that I have already decided I will never use it if I am going to be anywhere near bees, mosquitos, or bears.

snackabee

@SuperMargie I thought it smelled like pineapples? Using it just makes me want to sit outside and drink (although, to be fair, I want to do that pretty much all the time anyway).

Canard

@SuperMargie It smells like yellow. Actually, like YELLOW!!!!

anachronistique

@Canard It does. Like the same neon yellow on the can.

tortietabbie

I hate the hi-lo trend, but I'm tempted to buy that dress and just hem it...

tortietabbie

@tortietabbie lol nevermind too fat

olivebee

@tortietabbie Yeah, I have never been a fan of the mullet dresses/skirts/tops. I think it looks/feels like you have a tail. Hemming is a good idea because I always see clothes where I LOVE the pattern, color, style or whatever, and then it has that dang tail.

mackymoo

@tortietabbie The only good thing about this trend is that the stuff that I hemmed crookedly myself totally looks like it was done on purpose.

PistolPackinMama

@tortietabbie This one, however, comes in plus sizes. And I like the color a lot.

PistolPackinMama

@PistolPackinMama http://www.newport-news.com/smocked-gauze-peasant-dress.html

Yeah, sorry about that...

martinipie

I just started using a new dry shampoo that smells intensely like ROSES. I had no idea it would and got kind of freaked out but then...sort of liked it? I also assume/pray that any of the days I'm wearing my Fancy Adult Perfume would probably not be the same days I'm using dry shampoo.

koume

@martinipie Oooo, I think I would like that. I've got rosewater that I like to put on sometimes. What brand is that?

Jinxie

@koume Yeah, I want to know too! My Fancy Adult Perfume is kind of rosey, so a rosey dry shampoo might actually work well.

martinipie

@Jinxie @koume It is the got2b kind, which is a sort of dumb can but hey, it was half off at CVS!

Truly Outrageous

@Gone Away Lass Stila has less stuff on sale today because I just bought a ton!

frigwiggin

Ooh, ooh, yesterday I got my order from Sock Dreams! Anybody else who ordered during the sale last weekend get theirs? The giraffe socks I got are a bit tight but still adorable, and the two new pairs of extraordinarily longer thigh-highs are the shit, and I love whoever-I-forget who mentioned the Nikita OTK because they are gorgeous and soft and I love the giant soft cuff. And I think I have to send the garter belt back because it cuts into my fat too much but the rest was all gold!

SarahP

@frigwiggin I'm glad I didn't know about the sale, because I would've spent a lot of money on socks.

Which garter belt did you get? I want one but am afraid of cutting-in-ness, so don't know if I want to order one online...

Does Axl have a jack?

@frigwiggin That was me. :)
The Nikitas are pretty much the best thing ever. I also got a pair of the supercheap nylon thigh highs for experimental purposes, and they actually go all the way up to ass-height. I was impressed.

frigwiggin

@SarahP I got this one--I foolishly thought the Small would fit well, but overestimated the amount of stretch it would have and underestimated the amount I would need to stretch it (it's got a long velcro attachment in back and having any of that velcro bare against your skin is nooooot comfy).

frigwiggin

@armyofskanks In that case, thank you! They are so lovely and I actually hope it stays cool for a while longer so I have a chance to wear them. (Which is a hopeless hope because it's supposed to be 70+ for the next week starting tomorrow, but a girl can dream!)

SarahP

@frigwiggin That's the same one I like the look of--but sizing is scary. Also, wouldn't the clips show up as lumps on one's dress/skirt? I can't decide how I feel about this. KEEP ME POSTED, you are going to be my garter belt guinea pig.

frigwiggin

@SarahP Depends on how fitted the dress/skirt is, I guess? If the waist size weren't an issue, it seems like it would work really well. I know Erika Moen swears by her stockings and garter belt because tights give her crotch issues, but I don't know which particular one she has (it is definitely from Sock Dreams, though). I will probably send mine back and get a Med. I'll let you know how it goes!

SarahP

@frigwiggin Is it weird that I internetstalk Erika Moen enough to know just what you're talking about?

frigwiggin

@SarahP If it's weird, I don't wanna be not-weird. We're still less weird than the guy who told her about her sex aura or whatever at that convention!

anachronistique

@frigwiggin I did! I almost burst into tears because the Extraordinary Thigh Highs actually go all the way up to my thighs. (I'm fat, I wear size 22 pants, I have what my mother lovingly refers to as Calves of Doom.) I mistakenly thought the Ink Lined knee-highs would work, but if my sister doesn't want 'em I'm sending them back.

SarahP

@anachronistique I LOVE the Extraordinary Thigh highs, even though they are basically OTKs on me (I have long legs, I guess). I want more pairs so I can wear them all the time.

Canard

@anachronistique Such socks exist? On the planet Earth? My tall, size 18/20, Calves of Doom-supported ass does not have a lot of sock money, but these must be mine!

frigwiggin

@SarahP Try the Extraordinarily Longer Thigh Highs! I'm 5'7" and they go all the way up on me, so they might have a better chance of fitting higher on you too!

@Canard They're really, really awesome. I have the Longer ones in Teal, Orange, and striped in light blue/steel, and they're awesome. $20/pair, though.

Does Axl have a jack?

@frigwiggin I concur on the sock-unfriendly weather. Almost makes me want to try wearing them with shorts...

DH@twitter

I just want...all the sunglasses. All the large, loudly-colored sunglasses with too much going on. That shade of purple is not one that exists in my sunglasses collection--YET.

I also want purple jeans. Time to remind myself yet again that my saved money is going toward GEEK GIRL CON, a VERY WORTHY reason to save money.

SarcasticFringehead

@DH@twitter You're going to Geek Girl Con? I'm going to Geek Girl Con!

DH@twitter

@SarcasticFringehead

Sweeeeet. I knew there must be other Pinners going! We'll have to have a Pin-Up!

Megasus

@DH@twitter I have purple jeans! I got them at Forever 21 last month. I got red ones too but I fell yesterday and ripped the knee to shreds and am still kind of sad about it. Also I am jealous you are going to Geek Girl con.

DH@twitter

@Megan Patterson@facebook

You could rip up the other knee and help bring grunge back!

(grunge is coming back, or is already back? Either way good, I wasn't old enough the first time around)

SarcasticFringehead

@DH@twitter Yes! Do you live in Seattle, or are you coming in from out of town?

DH@twitter

@SarcasticFringehead

So far out of town, alas. Actually if anyone is looking to split a hotel, I am not a serial killer and I bathe regularly!

Megasus

@DH@twitter That's what I went with! Although I discovered later I was bleeding quite a bit, lolz

iceberg

Awww, you think $25 is cheap for sunglasses. *adjusts similarly old-lady-style $6 pair*

The Lady of Shalott

@iceberg I just spent $27 on a pair of sunglasses a few weeks ago, the most I have EVER spent on some, and THEY FUCKING BROKE TODAY GODDAMMIT and I really liked them! Adorable aviators! Goddamn you, MEC.

sarah girl

@iceberg Right? For me, moving up in the world was going from dollar store sunglasses to Target ones.

DH@twitter

@iceberg

Yeah, I snap up cheap sunglasses from the dollar store, Walmart, whatnot. The pair I usually wear are huge and white with a bow on one side and everyone loves them and I'm like, 5 bucks at Target!

iceberg

@The Lady of Shalott Bastards!!! I think that happened to me the one time I spent more too. The upside of cheap ones is not feeling too indignant when they break.

thenotestaken

@The Lady of Shalott MEC has the best return policy everrrr and they will give you new ones in a heartbeat! My friend exchanged a dirty old backpack that had accompanied her on many treeplanting seasons because the zipper finally failed and it was no problem to them.

mabellegueule

@iceberg Similar sentiments expressed above :)

The Lady of Shalott

@thenotestaken Aaaaaaaaaaahhhh!!!! MEC emailed me back and they're going to send me a brand new pair! Yay! EVERYONE SHOP AT MEC.

Faintly Macabre

@iceberg Though if you can get ahold of them, really fancy ones on sale can be worth it, money-wise. I bought and broke at least 4 pairs of $10 sunglasses before my mom gave me an old pair of metal-frame Ray Bans. While I'm a little more careful with them than I was with my cheapy plastic ones, they don't have a scratch three years in, and they're actually way more comfortable than my old ones. (Though this only goes for more expensive ones that are actually high quality--most of the plastic expensive "designer" ones are essentially the same as the $10 ones.)

thenotestaken

@The Lady of Shalott YES that is awesome! MEC love forever!!

orangeyouglad

That dolman sweater. In theory - comfy and cute. In actuality - will make me look like a (nude) potato sack as the color of the sweater eerily matches my skin tone.

hulia

@orangeyouglad Ah, you are probably totally right. Except I'm fairly certain that being made aware of that fact still isn't going to stop me from buying it, because I am terrible at color and awesome at deluding myself into thinking "no! this one is the one that will not wash you out!"

smidge

Maybe I should save this for the Open Thread, but, I'm going to a bachelorette party next weekend (dinner, drinks, and dancing) and all the bride's friends are fashion-savvy, which I am not. Can anybody recommend an appropriate outfit?

HereKitty

@smidge LBD or dark jeans, heels, snazzy top.

EpWs

@smidge What @HereKity said, plus ALL THE BLING. Do you own anything with sequins on it? Wear that.

punkrockparkinglot

@smidge Dress with sleeves and wedges! Add tights, weather permitting. Where/what activities will you be partaking in?

DH@twitter

@smidge

I took the opportunity of a bachelorette party last fall to wear something which I'd never had opportunity or nerve to wear before. So if you have something in your closet like that, it could be fun to bust out!

smidge

@punkrockparkinglot we'll mostly be indoors, drinking and dancing, though it's supposed to be not terribly warm that weekend.

smidge

@everybody thanks for the suggestions! time to shop!

Jinxie

@HereKitty And lipstick! I think this is a great opportunity to bust out some Serious Lips.

Daisy Razor

@Jinxie Yes! I was just going to say BRIGHT lips in the shade of your choice.

Jinxie

@Daisy Razor Ooh, yes! I got this awesome hot pink matte lip stain thing from Sephora recently as a VIB points gift - it's not at all something I would have picked out for myself, but I really really love it. Manfriend is a little afraid of it, though, so I only wear it for girly evenings (which don't happen nearly often enough). A batchelorette outing is an great time to bust out the crazy colors. (But ok, I may not be very "fashionable", at least in an "on trend" sort of way? And I live in San Francisco which is kind of any anything-goes town, so.)

The Lady of Shalott

Whyyyyyyy will that link to Newport News not work for me? I want that dress! I WANT IT YES PLEASE. But ahhh Newport News, once I had a SHOCKINGLY awesome pair of knee-high brown suede boots with a spike heel and this silvery pastel-y embroidery all over them of flowers, they were incredibly crazy beautiful and I called them my "Russian tsarina boots" because I got tons of compliments every time I wore them.

EpWs

I can vouch for the comfiness of that travel pillow! I bought my brother one before he left on his Grand Rockclimbing Adventure/Vision Quest (brothers, amirite?) and tested it out just to make sure. Very comfy once it plumps up (foam!) and easy to re-compress with a note inside saying "look out for bears."

raised amongst catalogs

@The Everpresent Wordsnatcher Bears, you say?

EpWs

@vanillawaif BEARS I SAY

PistolPackinMama

@The Everpresent Wordsnatcher It would be easier to look out for bears if he had a BEARCAM.

raised amongst catalogs

@PistolPackinMama WHAT WOULD THAT LOOK LIKE DO YOU THINK

EpWs

@PistolPackinMama OH GIRL. Just you wait. Big BEARCAM news coming in the Open Thread...

PistolPackinMama

@vanillawaif I don't know. Maybe something strapped to a salmon, so you can see when the bear catches it?

@TEW- I wait with BEAR-BATED breath.

nyikint

So I suggested this one time, and I wasn't completely laughed out of the park, so I'm going to give it a shot.

I thought it would be pretty neat if we could give stuff away to each other, partly as a way to spread the love, but also as a way to simplify our lives and be responsible consumers? Something like that.

So, from my end, I have a Guess wallet that I haven't used (and am increasingly realizing that by now, I probably never will). Here's a photo. If anyone wants it, I'll mail it to you. Preferably someone within the US so that shipping costs aren't irritatingly high.

Edith, Jane, if this is outside the bounds of appropriateness, let me know.

thebestjasmine

@nyikin I love this idea, and would totally do it with makeup that doesn't look right on me/samples etc. I was going to send a pinner some animal print nail stickers and then I lost them (sorry!! I didn't forget! They're somewhere in my messy apartment!). Does anyone want the Tarte lip tint that I got in my Birchbox last month? It's the pale pink one and looks terrible on me here but would probably look good on a pale skinned lady.

backstagebethy

@nyikin Looove that idea! I definitely have some stuff I could part with, especially if I knew it was going to a good home.

Daisy Razor

@thebestjasmine ME. SEND IT TO ME. You can have any number of the 20something face & perfume samples I've built up via Birchbox and Sephora.

DianaPrince

@thebestjasmine Oooh! I am a pale lady who would totally give some pink lip tint a good home. I don't actually know what lip tint is, per se, but it sounds like more pleasant lipstick and I've been meaning to acquire and try some lip-coloring product in the near future.

To pay it forward, I have a felt Kindle sleeve/clutch that I have no Kindle for. It is from this lady, but is a blue triangle print that isn't on the site right now. If anyone has a naked Kindle they would like it for, I'll send it to you!

DianaPrince

@Daisy Razor Oh man, Wonder Woman vs. Wonder Woman fight over the lip tint! j/k, it's all yours. Will still send that kindle sleeve to anyone who wants it though.

nyikint

@xx-xx-xx Ha, maybe the fairest way to do this is first-come first-serve? Alternatively, I suggest a joust! Your lances have to be made of out hairpins though.

iceberg

@nyikin anyone want a spare child? No, but this is a great idea though!

just reading in a boat no big deal

@nyikin YES. YES. Let's please do this. Maybe organized by city, in addition to the mailing option? I usually Freecycle my bad beauty buys, but giving them to cool ladies would be so much easier, and would save me from having to deal with so many flakes.

Let's call it the SHAREPIN.

thebestjasmine

@just reading in a boat no big deal THE SHAREPIN. I love this. Daisy Razor, you get my lipstick (and I love the battle of the Wonder Womans more than I can even say), but I will look tonight and see what little things I've got that I can send on and come back and post!

Daisy Razor

@thebestjasmine Thanks, xx-xx-xx! And I love the idea of The Sharepin! I have all sorts of stuff that I'm like, "I should give this to someone" yet never do.

PistolPackinMama

@Daisy Razor I think this would be a terrific Google Group, if you decide you want to do something other than Sharepin outside Friday Bargain Bins.

redheaded&crazy

@nyikin oh my gosh I am so in for sharepin. tell me more.

Killerpants

@thebestjasmine Oh my gosh, I've been hoping and dreaming for something like this! I have Birchbox stuff I would love to swap with people. And probably other stuff too. Sharepin! Yes! Anyone want my Lucky perfume sample and my Wonderstuck perfume sample?

just reading in a boat no big deal

@nyikin guys! let's take this party over to the Open Thread and win hearts and minds. #SharepinBoosterism

phlox

@Daisy Razor Yes, I'll share perfume samples. And the mascara sample I got last month, because I just don't wear it that often and I get enough free mascara with my Clinique bonus bag.

She was a retail whore

@nyikin Can we start a group for this? Because I have an assload of stuff that I can no longer stand to look at, but that is still great (such as all the Birchbox stuff that is aimed at people much paler than I). I don't think the hellbeasts at my job deserve this stuff, but if I have to give it to them, so help me, 'Pinners, I WILL!

Team Sharepin.

nyikint

@She was a retail whore

I have never used Google Groups before so I don't actually know how to set it up or use it or anything. So if anyone knows their way around Google Groups, it would be AMAZING if they could set it up!

She was a retail whore

@nyikin Okay, I don't know much about Google Groups (except I just made one, so I now know more than I did five minutes ago), but I just started a Sharepin group. Come join our country! Give away whatever it is that is messing with your feng shui and preventing you from achieving Nirvana, or whatever.

To join you can go to this link Sharepin on Google Groups. If you would prefer, you can email me at retailwhore AT gmail DOT com and I will manually add you.
https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups#!forum/sharepin

DianaPrince

@She was a retail whore - Do you have a link? I searched for sharepin but can't find it.

nyikint

@She was a retail whore AAA THANK YOU SO MUCH! I have officially applied for membership!

DianaPrince

@She was a retail whore Thanks!

candybeans

Yay for sharing! I have officially applied for membership to said group. i love this idea.
and, duuude, one of the first things I'm going to do once I get a job is start a birchbox subscription. it sounds like the funnest thing.

cosmia

@nyikin YES. I too have a ton of makeup/beauty-related products that were spur of the moment purchases I've only used once or twice because it turned out they didn't work well for me. I live in Canada so it might suck for US pinners to get things from me, but I know there's a bunch of us from Canada! If you're interested in this Bare Minerals bronzer/mineral finish powder stuff I have literally used once, realized it was orange on my super pale skin, and gave up on forever, hit me up!

Tragically Ludicrous

(I bought black AND tan, thank youuuuuuuuu)

backstagebethy

@stormageddon Yeah I have Yeti feet myself so I'm always on the lookout for cute Sasquatch shoes. Unfortunately I can't drop $70 on them right now, but it's nice to know they're looking out for us.

Faintly Macabre

@stormageddon 6pm.com sometimes has Clarks for dirt cheap, especially at the end of seasons. I got a pair of wedge sandals for $25 with free shipping last fall.

hotdog

Dry Shampoo: I was into it, until I realized I'm sometimes spraying aluminum onto my head. Which, while I'm sure isn't proven to do anything, just makes me uncomfortable.

BosomBuddy

@hotdog I did not know about this! I'm looking it up now, because aluminum freaks me out.

martinipie

@hotdog Baby powder, baby powder, baby powder. I sometimes flirt with dry shampoo if it's cheap and in a cool can but baby powder is the Original Gangster of dry-shampoo type stuff.

mackymoo

@hotdog I got this in a Birchbox and loved it, but it is also Not Cheap: http://www.birchbox.com/shop/lulu-organics-lavender-clary-sage-hair-powder/

just reading in a boat no big deal

@hotdog i have this same fear! i haven't bought it yet but after a lot of label research, i found John Frieda Luxurious Volume Anytime Volume Refresher. $7, and no alumin(i)um. it's a tall can, too, but idk how many uses you get.

i've also been on a hunt for a similarly "safe" deodorant. how did i go so long without realizing i was just applying aluminum right at/near my lymph nodes??

hulia

@just reading in a boat no big deal And less than half an hour later, Edith's rounded up a natural deodorant wizard to interview. It's like the Hairpin was in your brain!

MilesofMountains

@hotdog Many of them have HFCs, too (those things that kill the ozone layer). I started using it out of laziness, but powdered clay (like they use for face masks) actually works pretty well. Just make sure you brush it out because it's green and it makes your hair green.

just reading in a boat no big deal

@MilesofMountains Oh, I didn't even remember HFC! Clay sounds like a good option. Wherever do you get it? [clueless]

MilesofMountains

@just reading in a boat no big deal Ohhh, I must have been having a total brain fart. HFCs (what are in dry shampoos) are considerably better than HCFCs (which are what kills the ozone layer). They're still a strong greenhouse gas, but no where near as damaging. If you still want a natural alternative, though, I bought a box of powdered green clay from a natural products store in the beauty section. Mostly people mix it with water to make face masks for oily skin.

SarahP

I was JUST looking at very similar pumps this week, thinking "These would be perfect for that wedding I'm going to in July..." then talked myself out of it. But now! Seeing that such a style is hairpin-approved is making me talk myself back into it...

beeline96

The alt text speaks directly to my inner 5-year-old.

Jinxie

@beeline96 Ooh, I'd forgotten to check for alt text!

hulia

@beeline96 Woop woop pull over! I can't stop giggling at my desk.

charmcity

I just impulse-bought that scarf ... and a $19.99 "artisanal cardigan" from the same site while I was at it. Hairpin, you are literally the only thing in the world that can make me go shopping. My friends, family, and strangers on the street who have observed my increasingly ratty black cardigan parade of Winter 2012 thank you sincerely.

charmcity

@charmcity 'Pinners! I found a $20 off $80 discount code for J. Jill (DB0412) and added a dress and belt to my order. So: dress, belt, cardigan, and scarf for >$80! CAN I GET AN AMEN!

PistolPackinMama

@charmcity ALLELUIA!

hulia

@charmcity Ah, they have super cute espadriiiiiiilles. I'm totally using this discount code, although I am none too pleased with their shipping rates.

EpWs

@charmcity PREACH

lafleur

Nooo Nail Rocks are terrible! They stiffen up and bubble. Do not want. Use Sally Hansen or Kiss nail strips instead.

out of order

May I enquire... what is the appropriate use for dry shampoo? I've toyed with it a bit, and it doesn't seem to do anything for me. Is it because it doesn't get rid of oily hair? My hair is just too oily? I'm doing it wrong? Crappy product (I think I used the tresemme)

lafleur

@out of order It's amazing to freshen up greasy roots on second, third, fourth day hair. It also adds more texture to clean hair (aka, makes it easier to tease or pull hair up and have it stay). I find baby powder works better than actual dry shampoo, because you rub it in and SEE it suck up oil. Sprayable dry shampoo can be pretty wimpy with oil.

LeafySeaDragon

@out of order i wash my hair every other day, and if your hair is long enough, just tie it back/bun it. mine is not long enough (almost! almost!), so if i use the DS at my crown and top forehead/bangs area it makes it look not so dirty. granted, it still feels pretty dirty, but it doesn't look it. there is a HYYOOGGG differnce between DS's though. the one i like best so far is the batiste ($8)? but i also like the kenra kind i have now which was $18.

out of order

@LeafySeaDragon Normally I'm a wash every day person. I think the only time I've gotten to a 4th hair day was when I was in the hospital, and I did try it then, but my hair was just too far gone.

Maybe it's just the brand that I've tried. I've got some baby powder, I'll give that a go, and then maybe find some coupons and see if I can try an assortment out.

NeverOddOrEven

@out of order If you have darker hair, Hannah from XOJane.com recommends cocoa powder in place of baby powder. I haven't tried it but imagine it'd be nice to smell so delicious all day AND not have to worry about not blending it all in.

LeafySeaDragon

@NeverOddOrEven i have not heard this and i will try it!

hulia

@out of order If you don't wash your hair every day, you can also put it on at night and it will absorb the hair's oils overnight, which solves the problem of it not absorbing quickly enough before you rush out of the house in the morning.

redheaded&crazy

@NeverOddOrEven oh man this actually makes me wish i had darker hair because baby powder works so well to get rid of my greasy roots but i hate the smell especially when it's been left in overnight and then feel self-conscious about it all day.

mmmm cocoa powder smelling hair. that would be divine. i guess i should splurge on legit dry shampoo but from what i'm reading here baby powder is the most bomb! damn.

NeverOddOrEven

@redheaded&crazie I'd say corn starch works as well as baby powder, but without any scent.

LeafySeaDragon

i wish i had any allowance left, i love that top dress!

also - sauve dry shampoo made my hair feel like paper. :/ in a pinch, maybe.

Norrey

Ah! Jane, I'm a serious scarf addict, and I CANNOT pass up a wool/silk blend scarf for 10 bucks. I really need to stop reading the Friday Bargain Bins.

frigwiggin

I have another personal bargain-bin triumph to celebrate--last May I bought this Anthro dress on eBay at a considerable discount from its original sale price, but still an expensive price for me, because I was so smitten with it. It arrived and a size 8 turned out to be too big for my wee boobs, and I stashed it away in my closet with a whimper after having my friend's mom help me pin up the sides where I would need to take it in. I was too scared that I would screw something up and have wasted $80! But yesterday I stayed home sick from work, and I pulled that fucker out and sewed it up, and even though I had to rip one side out and redo it, it came out really well! And it's so cute and finally FITS and now I can get my money's worth instead of letting it sit in the closet. So, uh, yeah, toot toot goes my horn.

Daisy Razor

@frigwiggin Congrats! That dress is super cute.

hulia

@frigwiggin Cute dress! I am in awe of your sewing skills for wee boobs. I have mostly given up on any dresses since my child-bearing hips do not match my prepubescent chest, but I did get an (as yet unused) sewing machine for Christmas last year, and goddamnit, I'm a-learn how to use it for purposes exactly like this! One of these days, anyway.

PistolPackinMama

@frigwiggin Ooooooh, that is such a pretty, pretty dress. I really like it. And I have these here shoes, which would SO PRETTY with that dress, I can't even.

And I will never, ever fit into Anthropologie, so I will just have to feel the woe over here.

http://www.glamour.com/fashion/blogs/slaves-to-fashion/0315-pretty-shoes_fa.jpg

frigwiggin

@Daisy Razor Thanks! I lusted after it in my heart for SO LONG before caving in and buying it, you don't even know.

@hulia Aw, don't give up on dresses! I've found that the magic of full-skirted dresses work just fine and dandy for my chest/hips disparity--I buy a size that (roughly) fits my chest, and since the skirt part of the dress is "free," it doesn't cause problems! I haven't been able to find a wiggle dress or sweater dress that doesn't make me look like a bowling pin, sure, but there are other options!

@PPM Those shoooooes. Ahhhh you should see the stars in my eyes. I rarely, RARELY even think about shopping at Anthro because 1) the villainous prices and 2) a lot of their stuff looks adorable on the rack but heinous on me, but this dress bewitched me and before I knew it, it was on its way to my house.

PistolPackinMama

@frigwiggin I don't see those particular ones anywhere- I bought them to wear in my brother's wedding in 2010. But the brand is Poetic License, and they have these, which are a similiar flavor:

http://www.musthaveshoes.com/mhs/products?q=poetic+licence&pageSize=48&page=4&shoe=a-preppy-lady-basil-green

Faintly Macabre

@PistolPackinMama Never say never! Obviously, I don't know your size, but I am very tall and not really thin, and I have a knit dress from Anthropologie that's a size small--certain brands/dresses are not at all true to size. And those shoes are lovely, btw.

SweetAlissum

@frigwiggin Well done! I have that dress and loveeee it! You're going to want to live in it for summer now that you've made it fit (at least I know I did).
You're also inspiring me to seriously get my Anthropologie dresses hemmed already. I'm 5'4" but have a long torso so I need a lower waist and higher hem - impossible! I buy so many cute dresses knowing they need a hem and just get lazy. To the sewing machine!

candybeans

@frigwiggin is it weird to say that i think that dress will look super cute on you (which i know because of the times you've posted your clothes blog)? Because it totally will!

frigwiggin

@PPM I should've known they were Poetic License. I have been searching for a pair of PL boots on eBay for months now (I have a saved search that updates me), but a pair in the size/color I long for have not come up yet! I would probably have to get the calves stretched if it ever became a reality, anyway.

@SweetAlissum I'm so jazzed! I was kind of concerned that the fabric+lining might be too warm for the truly hot summer days around here, but it's going to be around 70 this weekend and I'm gonna wear it to the farmer's market and buy rainbow carrots and feel like the cutest girl in the valley. Good luck with the hemming, I know it can be a pain but altering so-so clothing to fit better makes it so much more wearable!

@candybeans It is not weird! I am all afluster, though. I think the dress would look cute on anybody because it is SUCH A CUTE DRESS, but it'll be nice if other people think it suits me! :3

Hello Dolly

@Gone Away Lass I, too, helped lessen the stuff on sale. Thanks for the head's up!

mackymoo

@Gone Away Lass I was worried when I got the email because I just bought a Stila palette and didn't want to find it half off. But it was not the case! Phew.

redheaded&crazy

also this is like wayyyy down where nobody ever gonna be seeing it but if anybody wants to join the little fashion club mailing list that some of us have going on you should email me at wombat.baby@gmail! because it's kinda great and some people put together awesome style boards that make me super jealss but it's cool it just makes me love them even more

VolcanoMouse

@redheaded&crazie I am intrigued! But I am also a lazy/lurky correspondant, so I might just stare silently in awe at y'all.

frigwiggin

@redheaded&crazie The fashion club is so much fun. I may have something to send out this weekend--depends on if I find the dress or not.

just reading in a boat no big deal

@redheaded&crazie [curious] how does it work?

candybeans

@just reading in a boat no big deal i would also like the answer to this question, and thus i add myself to the thread.

redheaded&crazy

hey y'all basically it's like, if you have a question about an outfit or wanna show something off or both, you send pics! and then people boost your ego/give advice!

Miss Violet

I have those shoes from last summer in the bronze metallic - they became my go-to everyday sandal. Wore them with everything. They did remind me of shoes my first piano teacher used to wear in 1980 (although maybe that was my attraction to them?)- but they are sooooo comfortable! I wish I had purchased multiple pairs in my size when they still existed. Lucky ladies with larger feet, you should snap these up!

Achyvi

Those hair clips are pretty amazing. I have fairly thick, long hair that bitterly resents any and all attempts to keep it from conforming to gravity, and those clips hold it all up (in a braid, anyway) decently well. They aren't quite as good grippers as ficcares are, but they are also a fraction of the price, so whatever!

TheFattestBunny

Good to know that my feet qualify as "VERY LARGE." Thanks for throwing the freaks a bone, I guess?

frigwiggin

@TheFattestBunny I don't think Jane meant it in that way--I know that larger-footed Pinners have been sad in previous Bargain Bins that the featured shoes only go up to a certain size, so it reads to me more like, "yaaaay, shoes that fit previously-left-out Pinners!"

TheFattestBunny

@frigwiggin Ha, I'm not really offended or anything. I do genuinely appreciate the effort... I'd love it if there was ever a super-cute dress in my size (which I think would qualify as "VERY VERY LARGE"). It was just kind of an unexpected "damn, BURN" moment!

frigwiggin

@TheFattestBunny Oh, okay! Sorry for misreading your tone. I read what you said and was just like, "ahhh, she's trying, don't be mad!" I don't have time this week, but next week if I can (and if the regular BB has a dearth) I will try to post a good variety of plus-size sales!

TheFattestBunny

@frigwiggin Aw, don't apologize, I definitely communicated that in the bitchiest way possible! I'd love to see genuinely cute hardcore plus-size stuff more often... I'm about a 32 and it seems like a lot of cute things MAYBE go to 24. But anyway, you're sweet and that was nice of you to rush to Jane's defense! This is why I love the 'Pin!

frigwiggin

@TheFattestBunny I will keep my eye open for any 32+ bargains I can find, then. :) I've gotten a few good resources from all the awesome plus-size style bloggers I follow, so hopefully they will turn up some great stuff!

candybeans

Jaaane! JANE! I would SO so love a tutorial on how to wear scarves, not in the winter! I saw all kinds of cool-looking scarves on tomboy style (also, how did i not know about that site until just now?? It's totally my situation), but I don't know what to doooo with them! Help! I could send you an actual email to ask for this. Does anyone else wonder how all these hip ladies wear slouchy, linen-y or square scarves and make them look so damn cool?

EvilAuntiePeril

@candybeans Me! I have tried doing nice summer scarf things, and always end up looking like an air hostess trapped in a wind turbine. And then they fall off. I cannot do BOWS.

grammarqueen

@candybeans I'm not sure if you'll see this, but I hope this helps! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5LYAEz777AU

candybeans

@grammarqueen that was a great video! Thanks for sharing!

Nutmeg

YOU GUYSSSSSS, if you like bluegrass, might I suggest the Ultimate Festival Deal of volunteering at Grey Fox? I am SUCH a schill for this festival since I've been going for about 21 years now (volunteering for 7/8) and their volunteer package is extremely generous. You work four four-hour shifts the whole week, but you get a free ticket, camping, showers, meals, "VIP" seating, chair massages!, and it's just really fun? I've been doing garbage crew for YEARS because it is a secretly awesome job.

forensicRN

I was so thrilled about the dress from Newport News until I saw the note about the price increase. Bloody hell, a tenner is a tenner and they lost my business!

werewolfbarmitzvah

Just FYI, my order of the red flowered cat-eye sunglasses from last week's Bargain Bin arrived yesterday, and when I put them on my husband told me I looked like Bootsy Collins. MISSION ACCOMPLISHED.
