Dana told me that a lot of people tell her she comes off as a very strong person and can be intimidating to people. I look at it like she knows herself well, so I am fascinated by her resolute point of view. It is bold, but in the most comfort-in-your-skin appealing way. Her confidence in a vintage kaftan and gold wedges, when the world considers the best dressed to be the same bland variation of a factory made mini dress and black ankle booties, is what makes Dana stand out. She is not a “dress” girl, but likes to “wear the pants.” Dana does so often, with a pair of black palazzos, that everyone should own. They are so classically cool. She wears them with assurance in suspenders and a big floppy hat, a la Diane Keaton, one of her idols. I love Dana’s black leather high waisted shorts that stand in for the customary “dress” as well. Along the lines of confidence, I admire the unpretentious honesty with which she wears Talbots and even Jessica Simpson accessories, making them look ultra refined, as she is. Dana seems to have zero regard for the jungle of trends and labels. Instead, she freely wears what she loves most, alot of which is from her mom’s closet of ’70′s and ’80′s and her actual equestrian riding jacket. Whether her drop dead mane of hair is swept up into a bun with a black one-piece or wild and loose with a colorful printed jumper, this is a girl who gets clean and sophisticated. Dana is self assured, which can be threatening.
