Those of you who know me understand my obsession with the brand Dannijo, the amazing costume jewelry brand created by the stunning sisters Danielle and Jodie Synder. I have such a love for the brand, my first ever blog post was all about it! So you can understand my excitement when the folloing took place:
On November 17, Dannijo opened a pop-up shop in Nolita on 27 Prince Street previously occupied by the original Ray's Pizza, though you would never know it. The small store features pieces from several of the brand's collections, as well as their iphone cases, pieces only sold in-store, and a couple of pieces from Parisian clothing brands.
The store is centered around a massive chandelier covered in the brand's signiture bib necklaces. At first I was a bit saddened that the bibs were exclusive to the chandelier and not on any of the display tables...until I realized you can shop right from the lighting fixture itself! Another cool store feature: the designers are constantly popping in and you can chat with them while you shop!
Yesterday, in honor of black friday, everything in the store was 20% off. I am usually not one to hit up black friday sales (I am scared of being trampled at the mall), but I couldn't pass up the opportunity to shop my favorite jewelry brand at a great discount! So I bolted into NYC to get my hands on an exclusive piece to add to my Dannijo collection.
The one downside: the store is closing December 31! I can only hope that the store's success promts the sisters to open a full on permanent store front. Here are some shots of the shop:
This incredible bib chandelier is the store's main feature.
The way the sisters display their designs at fashion week is on these "Femme bots": mannequins covered in their jewels!
My score: a stunning brass necklace exclusive to the store!
Prior to my extremely successful Dannijo visit, I skated in Bryant Park with my camp friend, Rachel. Bryant Park is one of my favorite spots in all of NYC, especially in the winter when I can skate for free and shop the kiosks! Here are some of my favorite pics from the day:

I highly reccomend the Crepe Cafe kiosk for lunch: our crepes were amazing!
O, New York, how I love thee.
Can't wait to show you all my cyber monday scores!
