It always irritates me that this quote is misconstrued as a call for minimalism. In Coco’s case, I assume this meant leaving the house with six strands of pearls wrapped around her neck instead of seven. Today, for me, it meant abandoning earrings, bangles, and rings in favor of loud (literally) and layered necklaces.
