I'm not exactly a dedicated follower of fashion, but I like to think of myself as being at least more au courant than, say, the Courant.
Still, my mind drew a blank upon encountering the phrase "ear threads", even though its meaning should be sort of obvious.
So much for my delusions of fashionista-hood.

Imagine my confusion when I first came upon the term "ear candle".....
