Not cute. Not even cute when skulls were popular. Old fads can be funny when worn well after they've gone out of style, but those damn skulls are still too fresh in my memory to be funny. Plus, rhinestones are difficult to wear without looking like Blanche Devereaux out for a night of geriatric naughtiness.
