No need to hold your breath, the rumors are true: WE’RE LAUNCHING BRIDAL.
What better way to break the news than with one of our favorite New Yorkers’ weddings. The Man Repeller‘s Leandra Medine said yes to OG, Abie Cohen, and we were so happy we designed some new jewels to adorn the bride and her wedding party. Stay tuned for DANNIJO bridal and peep the bridal #armparty below:
“H e ‘ s d e f i n i t e l y i n a b a n d. His legs are a lot skinnier than mine.” – The Man Repeller at SXSW
I went to SXSW this past weekend to speak on a Style X Panel with none other than #thetour mate, Leandra Medine of Man Repeller and #Umbilical fame.
As per usual, we had the time. Though we were in the middle of no where at the DoubleTree off an interstate (<–this is not a plug by the way as I wouldn’t recommend it), Brooklyn Decker showed up in her DANNIJO Stella bib and saved the day. It was like our version of the scene in Just Go With It when she comes out of the ocean in her yellow bikini. She was our lifesaver. Austin’s Angel. Thanks, Brooklyn.
We met up with my music friend Jesse Israel who is cool not only because his last name is a country, but also because he has a label called Cantora with a sweet logo. He discovered MGMT, not really a big deal. Anyway, our first show of the weekend was Wu Tang’s GZA. He’s not shy on stage or in person in case you were wondering.
After having an interesting conversation with GZA, we went to watch Theophilus London DJ or something. But as fate would have it, we saw him LIVE and in action the next day at Stubbs BBQ. After I shot the below photo, I seriously considered a career change as a music photographer. Ultimately I decided against it and told Theophilus he should start wearing DANNIJO. He’s down so stay tuned.
We hadn’t eaten in 2 hours and we danced like hyenas, so naturally, we were hungry. We met up with the blonde version of ourselves. Meet DJ Mia Moretti and Caitlin Moe. These girls are #Fun.
Then we went and laid in a grassy knoll like hippies since we smelled like hippies. We waited and waited and waited. Bought a $3 Diet Coke to share and watched the beginning of BigEasy Express about Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros and Mumford & Sons.
I don’t know how people do SXSW for 5-7 days because I was shot after 1.5 but maybe that’s because I’m a grandmother. Lucky for me, my fun didn’t stop when I got on the plane home because rapper Despot was seated in 2B and we chatted it up til wheels down. Needless to say, he corrupted me. Am I the only one or did you not know about gang Lo Life either? He promised me one of his old RL horse jackets that’s now too small on him. You’re my witness.
His rose gold ring and song Look Alive rock. Bye for now…
