Cynthia Rowley Creates the Coolest Band-Aids Ever

Come to think of it, Band-Aids have been in need of a makeover for a while now. Beyond the standard flesh-colored options, which always stand out conspicuously on my skin anyway, there haven't been any compelling patterned options for people over grade school age--until now.
Cynthia Rowley has just released a limited-edition assortment that comes emblazoned with sequin, gemstone, and ribbon motifs, turning something totally utilitarian into a cute adornment. They come in old-fashioned tins with twenty different options in various sizes and colors, so you can choose based on your outfit and, more pragmatically, the size of your injury. Yours for $10, and there's another feel-good aspect too: One dollar from the sale of each tin goes to Design Ignites Change, a non-profit that engages high school and college kids in design and architecture projects that address social issues in their own neighborhoods.
