"Most of my closet is black (typical New Yorker) and jewel tones. I'm really picky about prints and colors, and I tend to stick to what I know looks good on me.

I like to let my accessories do the talking, looking to ‘70s bombshells like Pam Grier or the ‘90s stylings of Fran Drescher for inspiration. I've never met a feather jacket or bamboo hoop that I didn't like.

I've been wanting a loud, obnoxious fur piece for a while; something to echo the wardrobes of the past, but colorful enough to feel modern. The color and the scale of this Topshop scarf made it the perfect candidate.

I've worn it with slinky slip dresses as well as a turtleneck and jeans. It keeps me super warm when I'm out with friends and I love slinging it over my shoulder or using it as a boa. It's a bit of everyday glamour."
