Knight$ of New York is the jewelry line of celebrity stylist and fashion fanatic Lauryn Flynn. She was inspired by “a medieval and post apocalyptic fantasy” and designed the line with four pillars in mind: Armor, Shield, Sword and Stone. According to Flynn, those elements “are designed to ward off negative energy, protecting the wearer from indecision and difficult challenges faced in everyday life” (via). Post-apocalyptic fantasy jewelry that also protects and empowers you? Holla.
Prices for this kickass jewelry range from $125 – $400.

That’s right – the Slick Rick.
I’m not pretending to be a music buff or anything, but I am kinda obsessed with Slick Rick. And if you like old school rap at all, you should definitely check him out. According to wikipedia (nerd alert), “he has been called “hip hop’s greatest storyteller” and “his music has been frequently sampled and interpolated by other artists such as TLC, Black Star, The Notorious B.I.G. and Snoop Dogg.” I just discovered him recently, and turns out he was a pretty big deal in the early days of rap. And he wears loads of wicked jewelry. Double awesome.
This weekend I was on the quest for some pants for work (booooring), was in Old Navy, and stumbled across their jewelry section. Cute stuff!
I ended up with a set of 3 knuckle rings for $6.95:
The quality is probably Forever 21-ish, but hey, at under $15, who can complain. Bravo Old Navy!
