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,…

Someone Is The Lucky New Owner Of The Pink Star Diamond (And It’s Not Us)
