Do Not Want: A Bracelet With Bite

A single animal tooth, sure. A tiny cast bronze animal skull replica even, that's fine. But I draw the line at wearing human teeth -- real or otherwise.

Flirting With Feathers

Confession: I totally had feather extensions put in my hair a few days ago. And then I had them taken out. Turns out my hair is so thick that the feathers get buried and become nearly invisible. I would need to glue an entire bird to my head in order to make any…
