While belts are my most beloved style accessory (if by "accessory" you mean "crutch on which I am hopelessly dependent"), other add-ons like necklaces, bracelets, and summer scarves continue to intimidate me. This year, I have become affectionate with chunky necklaces, but still wearing any other kind of accessory with one feels like overkill to my accessory-deprived sensory system, despite how much I might like the look on other people. Today's necklace, for instance, I love, but requires me to remove every other piece of jewelry before I feel comfortable. I guess I am a one-accessory kind of lady, monogamous to my single piece of flair. Let's just say Coco Chanel's advice--"look in the mirror and take one thing off"--would leave an accessory-phobe looking even more vanilla than she is typically prone to.
