DFW Style Daily delights in the Obsession Confessions of our city’s purveyors of taste. Today, we’ll take you inside the covetable collection of one such trendsetter with a social life that demands sparkling style.
Susie Oszustowicz, creator and editor of Susie Drinks Dallas, is a leading local authority on fashionable fun. She ventures to luxe lounges and watering holes in pursuit of cocktail chic, but lovely libations aren’t her only indulgence. Below, we’re revealing Susie’s heavy metal must-haves for the season ahead.
The Obsession: Gold accessories are Susie’s gilt-y pleasure.
The Confession: “Gold, gold, and more gold,” the blogger lists as her top three precious metals. “Gold nails, gold jewelry, gold clothing, and gold décor – it all gets me.”
The Rationalization: Justifying her need to shine on, Susie explains, “Adding just a little gold can up the drama of a room or make a drab outfit a little more luxe.” She also notes that she wouldn’t be opposed to “a bar of the real stuff!”
The Collection: From a gold-trimmed Lucite trunk to rock-and-roll jewels, this gal boasts some enviable bling. Among her current favorites are skull-themed, gilded pieces for her home and wardrobe. “I liked skulls before they were cool,” she adds. “And I still like them now that they’re passé.”
