Sinatra’s Collar

November 11, 2011

Yesterday in news that rocks: an anonymous commenter commented on this post that she had spotted none other than Man Repeller favorite, Alexa Chung clad in MR DANNIJO Sinatra collar. I figured Anonymous hadn’t really perused attentively, maybe just wanted to redirect some attention elsewhere, and then I opened the link left and yes, yes, it was true.

I’m pretty stinking psyched. I think one of the most telling indications that I really was a Man Repeller back when this blog was a small little fetus was this one time after the Met Gala 2010 when I along with some lady friends rated favorite looks from the night. I wouldn’t say too many people leaned toward Gisele’s latex cross-hatch, but the votes spoke pretty well to this blog’s aesthetic. Surprise struck though when I’d ranked Alexa number one in her Phillip Lim penguin suit and Chanel gladi-pumps. And said rating ladies disagreed. Think about it, people. Thin penguin in Chanel. Where else would one draw inspiration, really? Shortly thereafter I’d stumbled upon a video interview whereby she pronounced her style “quite tomboy.” This was followed by a sentiment that expressed her liking toward fairly girlish clothing as well. But girly in the little girl sense. Like pouf-y dresses and peter pan collars and high necklines. I’m so right there with you. Finally, one time recently, I even had a dream we were having drinks at the Surf Lodge in Montauk and then played baseball. This is getting pretty creepy though. So let’s get on to what’s important because the real question here still remains…

    You wore that collar with man repelling pride!! I think it's really cute :)
    And I LOVED it when she wore the tux. It made me weep a little on the inside that it wasn't in my closet.

    Tough tough choise. but actually I also commented on your facebook wall last night about the Vero Moda campaign with YOUR design around Alexa's neck :D haha
    Now I can't see it, so I'm not sure if facebook deleted it, but anyhow. Let's get down to bussiness! Who wore it best?
    This is a real toughie, but I think that in the name of the Man Repeller, I will have to say YOU :)
    You're totally man repelling H to T, so you win :D You go girl!<3

    Ah, Alexa Chung is amazing in an endless number of ways. Her style is equally as charming as her witty personality. You guys both look amazing in the necklace. I am pretty obsessed with that necklace myself. It has the ability to add a whimsical feeling to any look.

    It's a damn shame you two aren't homies and shopping in eachothers closets but I found out about your blog from her twitter since she follows you. I hate "who wore it better?" things. Both of you are too awesome for that shit but if I HAD to pick it would be you. Her picture is from a campaign though and those are always snooze fests.

    i'm so glad i found your blog!!! i've been checking out the ARAM necklace at Dannijo. and of course i'm in love. my question is: can you ship to sweden??? i don't have a blog myself so maybe you can answer via mail? mine is: lovisa.haeger.993@student.lu.se. or maybe you use polyvore? "lovisamaj" at polyvore anyways. been using the necklace in a lot of sets. thank you for being so inspirational, instead of depressing such s many others (swedish) bloggers.. sorry. but they are.
    anyways, effing like you man!!!!!!!!!

    I think you wore the Sinatra collar better. How you paired it with the mustache piece was the deciding factor.

  • http://www.blogger.com/profile/05590175743597181966 Grace

    Hmm…is there really a choice vs. Alexa Chung? haha I'm totally kidding! Looks like a tie to me! ;)
