Fictionary: Excessories

Fictionary is a column showcasing fashion- and beauty-related words that don’t exist, but should.

Famous excessorizer Kimmy Gibbler.

I’m SUPER averse to most accessories and jewelry, save for teeny delicate gold necklaces and simple stud earrings. OCCASIONALLY I’ll rock a bracelet or the odd cuff. Coco Chanel famously said, “Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take one thing off.” I certainly lean too much in the opposite camp, but I DESPISE Excessories. As someone who accessorizes with makeup and hairstyles and the odd hair accoutrement, anything beyond the subtle disturbs me. It’s all so KIMMY GIBBLER. She routinely rocked an elaborate updo with multiple hair accessories PLUS a large necklace PLUS dangling earrings. I blame my inability to don danglies totally to my “Full House” addiction in the ’80s.

What’s your stance on Excessories?
