My fashion friends wear tons of rings. Rings on their ring fingers, rings on their pointer fingers, rings on their middle fingers, rings at the top of every single finger, rings stacked and stacked. But if you're imagining Karl Lagerfeld-inspired, goth-style rings, don't. These rings are excruciatingly delicate—just a sliver of silver or gold. But together, they form a... wait for it... ring party! "I am wholly standing behind the finger party though I'd rather call it a digital rager, puns et al.," says Leandra Medine, founder of The Man Repeller and trade-marker of the phrase arm party (the ring party's predecessor).
Walking into Love, Adorned, a jewelry and lifestyle shop on Elizabeth Street in New York, is like walking into a wonderland of incredible, unique, and truly lovely items. From selling one-of-a-kind antique jewelry to luxurious candles to handwoven rugs, Love, Adorned almost defies categorization. Just about every New Yorker I know is head over tails for this shop, including myself, so I had to meet the woman behind the magic, Lori Leven. What I found out was that Lori is just as wonderful and insightful as her store. Immediately I got feeling that Love, Adorned isn't just her job, it's her love project. You'll definitely want to hear how Lori Leven is "making it."
