birks are back

Making their pronounced appearance sometime last summer, we're just now finally giving in ( as we have with overall's) to our once perhaps unhealthy obsession with them in the 90s. No longer cue-ing "crunchy granola," birks are making their way onto the fashion forward stage. Don't worry, "it's a thing" now.



So what do you think? We're on the hunt for some patent white one's ourselves.

what's up with the eyebrow?

Can we all just admit that eyebrows are sort of weird? Not event sort of weird, ok? They're like, really weird.

They're this little patch of hair over your eye that probably had some neanderthal type function - critically life saving once-upon-a-time, no longer applicable in modern day.

Yet somehow, now, all of sudden, it feels really important to pay attention to them. As in, "wow, you have really good eyebrows."

And, there's tools. Did you know about all the tools? I mean, not just one or two tools. Sections, products, lines, videos, instructions, steps.... why don't we know about this?



What is a really good eyebrow, anyway?

Whatever they are, I'm not sure that we have them. Actually, no. Let's just come right out and say it. We don't. And, in a desperate attempt to figure them out, we purchased said tools.

Not that we knew what do do with them.

Erroneous faith led us into this futile endeavor of spending all kinds of money on tools that would magically come to life in our bathroom in front of the mirror.



Eyebrow tools people. Do you know how to use them? Does anyone? Help.

No. Wait. This isn't for us. Whatever this is.

Sorry, we're not sorry that our eyebrows are, well, just weird. Congrats on your "good" ones.
