    The Nordstrom Ficcares are the real deal. They carry some basic ones in the stores.

    OH, thanks for the link, I didn't know they had a facebook. This is so exciting, borders are so pretty! Hey maybe they'll bring back the large ficcarissimos too, those are the ones I really want to try

    Maximas Silky Caramel (from Nordstrom)

    They look awfully similar to me and I cant find any links (old or new) about Maximas Silky Caramel. Starting to wonder if Nordstrom mislabeled it...
    HMMM I can't help with this, but just wanted to say they look the same to me too!

    I feel very "LHC old" now, since there are people who don't know about the borders! They were always my favorites, and they are the ones I'm keeping (mainly the Ficci borders!).

    Some I got on sale and the shipping was free; not sure how costs measure up these days.
    Very pretty clips to choose from BerrySara

    Ah thank you Groovy Granny and lunasea! I did end up ordering one from Nordstrom. Mostly because I hadn't seen the Pearlized Caramel on the Ficcare site when I first came across the Silky Caramel on the Nordstrom site plus the free shipping from Nordstrom was really nice. Well it already arrived! Ordered Friday and received Saturday, amazing! This is my first Ficcare anything and I am really impressed with the quality and feel of it. I also really like the caramel color, I was a bit nervous whether I would like it or not since the marketing photo colors can sometimes be a little off.

    Yea they look really similar to me too, I don't quite get the differences in the names of the two. Silky vs Pearlized. Honestly the Silky from Nordstrom is looking a bit pearlized to me, you can kinda see that in the photo below with the swirls. Wonder if I should order one from the Ficcare site to compare and just return whichever I like less.

    My first ficcare is being shipped from the swap board today! I am so excited. I was already looking at the whitish alba colored ones on Amazon when I saw one one here.

    no need to get two, Ficcare site's pearlized and Nordstrom site's silky are the exact same color. I don't know why Nordstrom is calling it a silky, other than they aren't hair thing obsessed like we all are. (Source: i own one from the Ficcare site that is identical to your Nordstrom one!)

    Glad it's getting worn! I've had some major health setbacks, sadly - but my hair is down past my shoulders now! It was waaaay too much hassle to keep in a pixie. I had to get it cut every 3-4 weeks, and I often didn't have the energy to do so, so then it looked ratty. Also, you have to STYLE short hair! This is difficult when sometimes one can't lift one's arms very much! (and then hands don't work nowadays either, since the last elbow injury.....) How are you doing?

    BerrySara, that caramel is gorgeous!
