Retail Therapy: Danielle & Jodie Snyde

Sure we browse Vogue, watch Beyonce and listen to our best friend's style advice but few things are better than making your own fashion discovery. This was exactly the case with Dannijo jewelry, which became an instant addition at first sight.

Dannijo uniquely emits a polished uptown feel with a raw downtown flair. We especially love the edgy rock star designs and diverse textures, including exotic skins and twisted metal. Dannijo's designing sister team, Danielle and Jodie Snyde, have a style almost as eclectic as their designs. Today, they share shopping secrets and dish on where they find inspiration. What do you think?

What's your most prized deal?
Jodie: A vintage purse that I bought 6 months ago and never want to take off. 

Danielle: My old-school vintage mens leather watch

Biggest regret that you didn't purchase?
Jodie: I have no regrets. I always buy what I like. Sometimes I regret buying it.

Danielle: Let me think about that...

This season you are looking for...
Jodie: A new pair of jeans. I can't find any I love 

Danielle: Cinch vintage belts, lacey lingerie, and more sundresses in this heat

What's your number one shopping tip?
Jodie: Don't get sucked into sales and buy things just because they're on sale. You'll probably hate it when you get home and try to wear it out. Focus on key pieces that will take you from season to season.

Danielle: Buy it only if YOU love it--not because the people around you say it looks great on you (they won't be there when you get dressed) 

What's your biggest weakness?
Danielle: Sweets--birthday cake, pinkberry...
Jodie: Ditto. and shoes

Is there an item for which a shopper should never mind paying full price?
Jodie: Jewelry because it always completes your look and it gets passed down from generation to generation

Danielle: Yeah, if it's an item they can't live without. I wear jeans more than anything so I don't have a problem splurging on them (and when I'm sick of them, I make them cut-offs for summer)

Off topic: I see last year at this time there was a Prada Friends and Family sale in July last year where there was 70% off and then the sale went back to 50% off.

Yesterday I noticed the sale is only 40% off. Did they have F&F already? Is it expected to go to 50% at least?

Nope. Prada didn't have a good sale this year. I think summer merchandise is being shipped out of stores this week.

Thx Lila. After my visit to Prada I headed to Bergdorfs where I found the Prada pieces I wanted for 60% off! - Deme
