“It’s a Tory Burch horn,” DJ Cassidy said, showing off his white, tusk-shaped necklace at the designer’s flagship launch party on Tuesday (he also wore it to the Frye Company party on Friday). He has one in black, too; and no, he assured us, Tory Burch does not make men’s accessories. His gold Ralph Lauren bracelet is also from the women’s section. “I got it at the new women’s Polo mansion," he said. “You’ve always got to browse the female sections of stores; I always do. You never know: jewelry, a straw hat; you know, there’s the rare thing, but you’re going to be the only one wearing it.” One of his favorite stores is Intermix, particularly for their gold necklaces. “The first time I ever did it, I was like, ‘I’m buying this for my girlfriend.’ Then I said to myself, what the hell am I doing? I’m buying this for me. I don’t need to say that. I was like, fuck this, I’m trying it on. Please, what am I hiding?”
