A Fancy Lady

Only the finest Band-Aids for me, you see...

Only the finest adhesive bandages for me, you see…

I have a few quirks.  (Shocking, I know.)  I’m particularly weird about stockpiling an excessive amount of household paper goods and personal care products–stuff like toilet paper, paper towels, Kleenex, and Q-tips.

I also like to hoard Band-Aids. I can’t remember the last time I actually used a Band-Aid, but I like to keep several boxes on hand. And not just any Band-Aids–designer Band-Aids!

I can’t afford luxury clothes, fine leather goods, or fancy housewares, dammit, but I WILL have brand-name Band-Aids commissioned by REAL designers! (Hey, remember this post?)

I’ve been thinking about my Band-Aid obsession lately because I’ve been trying to get my hands on a box of Oh Joy! Band-Aids for months–that is, bandages created by the designer/blogger Joy Cho. They’re only available at Target and my local store was always sold out, but I finally snagged a box this past weekend. Huzzah!

This recent acquisiton brings my stable of designers to three:

Cynthia Rowley Band-Aids

Cynthia Rowley – my picks for fall

Cynthia Rowley — The CR Band-Aids are the best. They’re printed with sequins, lace, gold chains, jewels, and mini photos of runway models. Squee!

Isaac Mizrahi Band-Aids

Affordable Isaac Mizrahi

Isaac Mizrahi — These are cute, too–with hearts and flowers and graphic text and even girly camouflage.

Joy Cho (Oh Joy!) Band-Aids

Compromised epidermis has never been more Oh Joy!-ful…

Oh Joy! — Yay! Cute and colorful! Like abstract watercolor prints!
J. Crew has also designed a set of Band-Aids, so those are next on my list. There’s a kid version (meh) and this adult version:

The only thing at J. Crew that will(might?) fit me...

The only thing at J. Crew that might fit me…

Now I just have to remember to USE some of these cute Band-Aids!

P.S. I hoard paper and personal care products, yet I don’t keep a supply of food or water stocked for a rainy day. I’m screwed in the event of a zombie apocalypse. I don’t think there will be much of a bartering market for makeup sponges and organic hair conditioner.
