I like the turtle shell black pin the most, on first glance at 3 Bags Full in Northbrook. I realize I don't have much shawl knot finesse. I have one pin purchased a ways back, but I can't master how to make it work well either.
I'm beginning to think I need the shawl sticks. I could always get my very thick long hair up with two long sticks and it would stay well. So, I ask ya, ( mona lisa vito style) : Do you need two sticks to make a shawl stay? Do you use shawl sticks? Do pins work for you?
And the thing I liked best about the Oscars, was the John Hughes tribute. He grew up in the next town to the north, and he filmed his movies in suburban Chicago. The Breakfast Club was filmed at my husbands High School when it closed. THe library looked nothing like it did in the movie. He didn't finish college. Why waste his time and talent. His clarity about how to be a young teen may have been muddied if he had stayed in college. How wonderful that he knew how to weave stories about the difficult teen years that spoke to so many of us.
I talk more in the comments!
