Current Obsession: Margiela Nail Ring

For something so much smaller than my other rings, this one isn't any less noticeable.

The fact that it appears to be fashioned out of a mundane object and the subtle element of danger suggested by the pointed tip (which, thankfully, is dulled) make it such a conversation piece.

I blogged about not getting this ring at Selfrige's April of last year only to spend eight months almost hopelessly searching for it. Luckily, last Thanksgiving weekend, I stumbled upon possibly the last of these in retail at IF Boutique in Soho, my latest favorite shop in New York City.

Though I might maintain that the best gifts come in orange or red and gold boxes,


I still think the coolest accessories come in white boxes with numbers on them.

That is great! Makes me wish I was handy with a blow torch so I could fashion my own cheap version.
