I tend to be pretty simple when it comes to clothes. I love a good jacket; I’m obsessed with finding dresses that can accentuate my curves in a clean, easy way; and I have more jeans and t-shirts than I can count. I’m classic American when it comes to the wardrobe.
But when it comes to accessories, I’m like an episode of Dynasty: the bigger, the better. I want jewelry to pop. I want it to dance, I want it to sing, I want it to come out for an encore just when you think you can’t take another second of excitement, then drop the mic and leave you crying.
I think the reason I like having a wardrobe that’s simple and easy is that it acts as a gallery for the gems. My breasts are merely a display tray for a necklace, my haircut frames the earrings. I’m an Accessories Addict, and my addiction only knows one cure: more Dannijo.
This was the first time I’d had a chance to see the collection during New York Fashion Week, and it was a real treat. Designers Jodie and Danielle Snyder decided it was time to take us on a road trip where we’re free to explore our bohemian side, picking up gems and jewels from our journey along the way.
Some looks warmed the model with brass, others gave a nod to the cool blue sky with stones and silver-tone pieces that had a gorgeous Southwestern feel. All of the pieces felt tribal, nomadic and quite mystical. There were flashes of Talitha Getty in some of the looks, a gorgeous nod to well-traveled boho chic. It’s a cool collection.
This cuff is my favorite piece:
