Danielle Brown Swanston, 28, is head of marketing for J. Brown Jewelers. It's clear the Canton resident also knows how to market her style, which she describes as "eclectic chic...My style's a little edgy. But, I embrace traditional ideals with Old World glamour." When the American Red Cross of the Chesapeake Region hosted its "Red Wine. Red Rubies...Red Cross" wine tasting at J.Brown's, Swanston sported a brown and gray paisley on navy print chiffon dropped-waist MM Couture dress that she found at Intermix in Boston. She added charcoal Spanx tights from Nordstrom and dark brown Chloe equestrian boots with 1-inch chunky heels from Saks Fifth Avenue. "I'm obsessed with Chloe boots," she said. "They're the most comfortable, functional boot I've ever come across. The quality of the leather is phenomenal." She picked up her brown suede bit bag at a Gucci store. Her 3-row prong-set pave diamond necklace and gold and diamond swirl cuff earrings both came from J. Brown's. The sapphire ring is her mother's. Her platinum and cushion-cut diamond engagement ring and diamond eternity wedding band also came from J. Brown's -- courtesy of her husband, Duncan Swanston.
