do the *finger* wave

I'm really excited about tomorrow!  The company I used to work for (and where my beau still works) is having a fancy casino party, and afterwards a friend is turning, well, a very important age.  I'm packing a trunk of ridiculous goodies and setting up a photo booth.  I'm excited to take everyone's photos, and it will give me a great excuse to sit down.  My knee has been acting tricky lately. 

This little shindig is unofficially prohibion-themed, so I'll be attempting a finger wave on my little pixie cut. The bangs are at about the perfect length to style up a bit. I've watched this video three times now and thought I should share. 

Maybe I'll look like this:

I'm not quite sure what I'll be wearing yet, but I have a couple of options.  A fortuitous visit to the Goodwill this evening left me staring blank in the face of the mint green sleep I have been dreaming about.  I might layer that with a little 90s burnout dress that has an art deco feel, or perhaps I'll be brave enough to wear the actual flapper gown I have.  I doubt it. There may be chicken wings at this party, and there will DEFINITELY be copious amounts of red wine.  

I'm very excited about these finger waves, as I have never sported them before.  I've set my alarm and will be rushing to the drug store tomorrow before I go to work so that I can pick up some hair gel.  Or maybe I should just go now. 

With a little cooperation from my knee, I'll be doing this:

Definitely off to the 24-hour drug store now.  I'm not the least bit sleepy, and everyone around here is snoozing.  I'll be sure to post pics!

  1. Finger waves are so elegant! Too bad they wouldn't suit me.

    You have a lovely blog by the way, I'm following it from now on. (:
