I live in New York City’s East Village and one of my favorite local shops to stumble into while out walking my dog on a weekend afternoon is Verameat.

Style 911: “Help Me Cover My Ugly Wrist Surgery Scars!”

So I broke both wrists this fall.  The casts are now off but I’m left with some rather ugly surgery scars on both wrists.  Frankly they look like suicide scars and I’d like some ideas for how cover them up when I choose (job interviews and the like). The scars are each about four inches long,…

Must Haves: 10 Cool Cuff Bracelets

Accessorizing isn’t really my strong suit — more items on my person just translates to more items to be lost in a freak incident. Well, not that freak, I lose things all the time. Cuff bracelets are great because they’re substantial, and because they can actually be adjusted to fit one’s (unsettlingly tiny, in my…

Etsy Spotlight: Stunning Space Jewelry

I recently bought myself a Rosette Nebula necklace from an Etsy artist, because my middle name is rose and I love space photography. It’s even more beautiful in person, and I’ve been getting so many compliments on it I thought, “Damn, everyone should have a cool piece of space jewelry!” Want to get in on the interstellar…

Set The Message Straight Any Day Of The Week

Maybe you’re mean, or maybe you’re just sassy. Maybe it’s Monday morning and you haven’t gotten your caffeine intravenously yet (three shots, please). Maybe it’s Saturday night and you feel like going to a trashy dive with your girlfriends without being approached by the lechers that generally come with it. Hell, maybe it’s Wednesday, and…

Are These Profile Bangles Great Or A Waste?

Russell Greenberg from Cameo by RUX has created his idea of a modern cameo. He carves resin bangles and 18-karat gold and platinum rings into 3D portraits of anyone’s profile. And all he needs is a photograph. While personalized jewelry is usually an awesome gift, these bangles are so clunky they’re ugly. And really no…
