I’m very obsessed with this new jewelry line called Arms & Armory. Created by designer Christina Rodriguez, the collection mixes hard matte metal with shiny plastic charms, creating a surreal, slightly skewed look that could work in a Tim Burton movie or with your favorite camisole. The line is newly hatched and only includes six pieces, but if you score it now, you could be ahead of the trend—a valuable commodity in a town where “I had it first” is a better badge of honor than almost anything else.
From $80 at Screaming Mimi’s, 382 Lafayette St., between 4th and Great Jones Sts.; 212-677-6464; screamingmimis.com. More info at armsandarmory.com.
