By now, you must have heard about Band Aids by Cynthia Rowley. Everyone and their mother at the Retreat was walking around looking like they just got into a fight, with bandaids all over their arms. It was really hard to choose which one to put over my fake cut. There’s the bandaid with models from one of the shows. Then there’s one with a a jeweled band on it. Then, of course, you have the ones with Cynthia Rowley’s name on them. They’re uber cute and a fashionable way to deal with papercuts at the office. These will be in stores September 8th.

Hanes is going Mad Men on us, with hosiery for Fall. With dark and flesh colored stockings, these aren’t vintage anymore. These are definitely on trend. There’s the sexy lace design on one, as well as a cool houndstooth on another. The craziest thing about these? Their Run-Resistant Technology! Yup, if your stocking gets a tiny hole, it does not mean that its going to result in a run. My favorite is the BlackOut Opaque in Thigh High. How sexy is that? They all retail for under $15.
