Break a Leg!
It turns out that orthopedic injuries are, um, more than they are cracked up to be. Everyone's favorite hipster Lindsey Lohan is sporting the hottest new trend around: casts!
Anyone who has ever broken a bone knows it has all the makings of a fashion trend:
1. Scarcity. Getting a real cast involves a painful fracture, not something we will all endure. Of course, there are sure to be knock-off "fake" casts... but those are not as cool!
2. Upkeep. You have to put plastic bags around them when you shower. Also I have been told they start to smell if not cared for properly. Smelly = Gross, not hip!
3. Customizable! Miss Lohan has added signatures to her winter white wrist cast. Just be on guard for people trying to customize you new cast badly. No one wants that messy signature or odd drawing on their newly acquired accessory.
4. Short lived. I'm sure Lindsey's cast will be removed in a few weeks so get cracking! If you end up with a cast in a few months, you will look like those girls who wear Uggs still.
So bring out the klutziness and hope that your new cast comes with Lindsey's boyfriend too!
