Semi Vintage

Today, I decided to be semi-vintage. I pin curled my hair last night and it turned out pretty cute. I noticed today that my pin curls were quite a bit more kinky than when I use sponge rollers. I think I'm not being careful enough when I curl my pin curls. They still look cute anyhow.

I'm wearing a lovely Belle Blossom, but I never did manage to get a good shot of it. The color is just lovely and it pops so well against my hair!

See, it's all curly! And I'm wearing one of my favorite pairs of earrings. They're from Egypt!

Here's my ensemble for the day. I made the (faux) fur collar from Casey's tutorial. I neglected to by snaps to attach it to the sweater and I don't think I made one quite big enough for this sweater. It's just sort of tied on right now. I wanted to wear it today. I love cardigans. They look so retro. I'm currently wearing the only pair of jeans that fit (sort of).

Sweater and green plaid cami: New York and Company
Jeans: Banana Republic
Dorothy shoes: Macy's
Collar: hand made by me
Hair flower: Belle Blossoms

Yesterday was a crazy house cleaning day. I didn't get much house work done over exam week so my poor apartment was in desperate need of attention. Today is going to be a sewing day. I have the Gertie Sew-along to do plus a Christmas present to finish.


  1. I think you did a great job with the pincurls,it looks so sweet & pretty!I love the colour too,forgot to comment on that previously,sorry.
    I love the collar,that's great.I might have to make one of those .It looks like it might be easy enough for a sewing klutz like me:)Thanks for the link.

  2. your hair is so lush and beautiful and BRILLIANT job on the collar!! Happy holidays xoxo

  3. Lovely! Your curls look really pretty. I've been wanting to make one of those collars since I stumbled upon it a few weeks ago. I think it may have to have to wait till after x-mas! :(
