knucking dusting


l-r pippin nyc, topshop, gothic store, urban outfitters, topshop, topshop

the ring collection continues to grow.


rings are my main vice in the jewellry department. i never ever wear earrings and instead load up on knuckle bling, alternating between these and wearing about three at a time or threading one through the thin gold necklace i always wear.

the matter of the ring must be taken seriously (indeed!), and like any article of clothing, there are the inevitable muses who lead the way. for me, these are whitney port for her staunch dedication to always updating her ring and nail polish combos and to mary kate whose pinkies look naked without a smackering of metal.

of course there is also the ever raging nail varnish issue of to chip or not to chip*. i must say, i fall into the former category out of sheer laziness and maybe because i take a teeny bit of pleasure in the scuffiness.

so what's your relationship with rings?

*sorry jess (at sick) i know it's your pet hate!

I'm the same way! like right now I'm wearing some ratty jeans & a tee circa 03 with the word "preppies" crossed out but I still make sure my hands are stylin-I got a filigree ring & a emerald glass ring on, plus I'm rockin tangerine polish. I feel naked without at least two rings.

bohobum said...

& I too envy your skull ring. I have yet to find (a non-tacky) one IRL

hi there i love your blog! anyway, i love rings because you can look down if your bored and admire them, ahaha, play with them. also, there is such a variety more than necklaces and earrings i think.

Such a ring person. There's a vintage market every Sunday in Toronto and I always find beautiful old rings there. I once found a vintage Tiffany's ring, which has become my favourite (though I'd like it better if it had diamonds in it ;) )
I love that cat-leopard-looking ring you have.

Lisa said...

The "V" and the Jaguar are excellent!

Sunniva said...

I can't get enough of rings! My collection is growing so fast at the moment. Love yours, Stevie!

ps. Did you receive my thank-you e-mail? Just so I know that it didn't get lost somewhere and you think of me as an ungrateful brat :p

poeta fit, non nascitur said...

i DO take it seriously! LOL. it was funny when you emphasized the "must" back there. i so love the rings on your middle finger! is that an owl? i love it!!

dw said...

i tend to wear 2 on one hand and 3 on the other and then rotate them throughout the day. it's like it is some weird, nervous habit,but by the end of the day...they never are where they began...

M said...

why is it that i can never find rings anywhere near resembling those?
oh how i long for a topshop :(

Fashion Tidbits said...

too chip or not too chip is my current dilemna. do you have any idea how black looks so messy chipped only on one hand???!!!!

lisa said...

I don't wear rings myself. I've never gotten used to them and they always feel awkward when I'm speed-typing.

Lee Jones said...

i love the rings!!!

leelee said...

you have a sick collection of rings

LANA said...

I like rings, but they fall of my fingers all the time. Small fingers :(.

Love the toughness that rings bring to your look, and I like yours combined with the red nails.

iƱaki said...

Wow great choices!

I only wish I had lots of knuckle dusters...I'm a big BIG ring fan...

Anna Pope said...

I was never a ring person until this year when they slowly started creeping up into my jewelry box. But I always have problems finding rings because my fingers are really thin and most of them always fall off :P

SICK. said...

haha it's okay, you wear it well.
that ring on your right middlefinger looks like a ysl one i've seen.
