However, there are some lines that I personally draw when it comes to Ravens apparel. I appreciate a bit of sparkle, as long as it is not in the form of rhinestones on a Ravens jersey. There is no place for the color pink in football, unless we are observing Breast Cancer Awareness month. Don’t even get me started on those Ravens platform heels that have circulated the internet (although I have never seen someone admit to purchasing them).
Although I sound like a curmudgeon in regards to womens’ gear, I do appreciate a good piece of jewelry, as any woman does. Enter Dana Hoiles, owner of Sports Jewelry by Dana Hoiles, who caters to all female sports fans with her eclectic line of sports-themed jewelry and clothing. Her tasteful designs complement any game-day outfit, whether you choose to rock your authentic Ray Lewis black alternate jersey or your pink Ray Rice t-shirt.
I first discovered Dana via Twitter, after I had seen a photo of her amazing Home Plate pendant circulating around the internet. After browsing the rest of her site, I fell in love with many of her other pieces, including her purple rhinestone football pendant and her stitched baseball heart, which I actually own. Her motto “Love the Game” resonates in not only her jewelry line, but also her clothing line, which features that signature stitched heart, among other designs. Not to leave the men out of the equation, she also features pieces for men, including tie tacks, cuff links, and “Own the Game” clothing.
