Any situation that requires a band-aid is never a pleasant one. Even worse, a bandage incident is never an attractive one either.
When Cynthia Rowley came out with her limited edition collection of glammed-up first aid kit staples, I rushed out to grab a set. While the sequin and jewel printed band-aids don’t take the physical sting out of your wounds, at least they soften the emotional ones. As you can see, I have already performed a fashion malfunction by blistering my ankle with a pair of Rodo Shoes that were not properly broken-in.
The once-limited edition set is now being offered en masse, with a “Glambulance” rushing to the rescue for fashion emergencies all through the upcoming NY Fashion Week.
When Band-Aid asked me to post on this event, it brought back to mind the part they played in my family.
My sister-in-law was always really sweet to me since the early awkward days of first dating my husband. We bonded on mutual loves of fashion and style. She is a big fan of Cynthia Rowley’s boutique in Montauk, NY and also loved the band-aids when she saw my post on them on this site.
Well, unfortunately, she has had a really rough year. She was in a brutal car accident right before Spring 2011 NY Fashion Week. I heard about it while seated at the Cynthia Rowley show. By coincidence, the show souvenir was the special tins of band-aids in little satin pouches on the seats. I was able to gift these to her in the hospital after the shows. She later sent me a photo of the band-aid bling covering pins in her leg at the hospital.
I was also very flattered to hear that she continued to read my reports of fashion week to keep up with the outside world while she recovered in the hospital. Since the accident, she has also had several more trips to the hospital for a collapsed lung, cancerous cyst, etc. What I was amazed by, was that even as she could be nodding off from drugs, 20 minutes out of surgery, she still looked like she just stepped out of a salon. And, no one rocks a hospital gown like it was Haute Couture better than she does!
