yeah, i really like the brightly colored ones Kezi!
ok, just sending these over here...and adding one more so it's not a total waste to your eyes.
Finally got my "gauge" earrings gingerdreadman ! But Claire's didn't have them. I had to go to Hot Topic (which was cool, cuz I hadn't been there in like a lifetime!) Surprised that I am actually a 16, could've gone 14, if I wanted to stretch. (oh yes, cue the eager saleslady. ) Anyway, I really like HotTopic! haha will have to go again! was cool that hubby isn't scared, because I know it isn't a place for everyone. Serious question though folks, how do you fasten the hoops? (there are no screws or pointy edges, it just closes like a necklace loop. pliers??)
oh! and can't forget my price piece...some new shoes! (this is back home though.)
eh, and I also took a pic of my old boots (they actually DO go a bit higher and support the ankle) ah yes, my ankle boots LeRemy
You just pull them back down and the string goes back in. Yours may be an imitation of mine though, so the quality and ease might be different. Also mine are not scratchy.. They feel like high thread-count sheets xD Also, check the washing instructions. Mine are hand painted so need to be hand washed carefully.
I love boots... all kinds of boots... usually I wear docMartens, bur fell in love with too many pairs of boots when I was in Texas recently. Brought home too many!! (Oh... and I love coffee... always! Maybe to the degree that I could say it is part of my style)
I love my cords. I eventually got over my mortification of having to wear cord flares on a middle school trip when all the other kids had moved on to the more fashionable tighter trousers of the early eighties. The nineties revisiting was fun. I have a sewing pattern kicking around from then with some interesting takes on flares...
I actually made those trousers, but ended up taking the flare in so they were straight... they just didn't look right in the fabric type I'd picked.

chesh: Hey rye, under the "Dreadlock FAQ" >>> "The Basics" there is information on washing on the bottom. In my experience so far it has been best to wash my dreads when they get itchy and use a dry shampoo to help with the oils that are produced naturally.

SketchyMagpie: Hey. It differs on hair type but generally speaking, you can lose up to between 25-50% of the length. Most people will be around the 25%-35% mark, ish.

FriendlyGoblin: Hey guys, I'm thinking of getting dreadlocks and I was wondering how much they'd shrink. I have medium-thick hair that is decently damaged and is 20" thick from scalp to tip. I'm also white. I'm thinking of getting them so they're life sized ruler

littl3birdy: Hey nessdeyali , bumps and loops are part of the process. Combing out the dreads and restarting will just lead to the same result. Check out some of the timelines here and you will see lots of bumps.

50locks: Is there an app for this? Its really hard to use on my phone lol

sketchymagpie: Hey V. It does occasionally, but the problem is that a lot of people use Tapatalk to access the site on their phones and you can't see this chat box on that, so of the small number of active users here currently, even less of them know this exists ha.
