empowering bad-ass brides for the greater good
The Borrowed & Blue Project's mission is simple: to empower, encourage and unite badass brides for the greater good. Each bride who is part of the movement gets to rock a one-of-a-kind jacket on their wedding day in exchange for making a donation to a nonprofit that co-founders Dana and Breidi have handpicked. After the wedding is over, the jacket is then shipped to the next bride and its legacy lives on.
AN EMPOWERING MOVEMENT
The Borrowed & Blue Project came from the idea of creating something just as fun and special as The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants (but a little less weird). Dana and Breidi spent countless hours discussing the possibilities and logistics. In February 2020, The Borrowed & Blue Project launched. Dana and Breidi sought to create something that could be shared among brides and could make an impact. What started as simply a "jacket idea" turned into an amazing passion project that Dana and Breidi both love and care deeply about.

blue is sooo your color, girl
THE BORROWED & BLUE TEAM
Dani is a self taught hand lettering and calligraphy artist residing in Southern California. She has a degree in Interior Design and a background in event coordination and hospitality. When she stumbled upon the hand lettering world, she fell head over heels in googly-eyed, obsessive
love. She has since found a lovely space between the fine art of calligraphy and custom letter forms. Some of her other loves include her beautiful daughter, a nice glass of wine (or three), traveling, a good book and soaking up time with friends and family. But mostly, all she wants do is draw letters.
Ally Jacqueline creates bespoke wearable art designed to be used as a tool of self-expression. Jackets are her go-to canvas, but she'll add a touch of magic to anything she can get her hands on! Each piece is made with love and created to celebrate the beauty of your individuality. You can usually find Ally outdoors or snuggling her two pups on the couch trying to cope with her severe case of wanderlust. Homemade chocolate chip cookies are her kryptonite.

rent it. rock it.
then pass it on.
When The Borrowed & Blue Project was launched in 2020, The Fringe Jacket was the very first rental. It's a Levi's size medium that fits in an oversized slouchy way.
The jacket says "it was always you" on the back and was painted in 2020 by Breidi.
THE OG RENTAL
TO TOP IT OFF
When we started The Borrowed & Blue Project, we wanted it to truly be your something borrowed and your something blue. We wanted to expand our offerings to help you stand out on your wedding day.
Adding a blue non-jacket offering seemed the best way to do so. Enter The Hat.
The Hat is a Free People felt hat that says ""live by love though the stars walk backwards" on the inside brim.
THE PAPER CLICHÉ
BORROWED & BLUE: CHAPTER TWO
The Borrowed & Blue Project took off in 2020 and our calendar quickly booked up. It was the perfect time to bring more jackets, rentals, and options to our brides. In November 2020, we launched 2 new awesome rentals.
Dani's jacket says "more than a feeling" in beautiful script and features fun fringe and a peek-a-boo back.
BORROWED & BLUE: CHAPTER TWO
The Jacqueline Jacket was the second jacket launched in The Borrowed & Blue: Chapter Two. Along with the Dani Jacket, this one is an amazing new addition for our bad-ass brides.
It's a STUNNING blue leather (our first leather addition, by the way!) with classic fringe that adds some flair. The jacket says "there's something about you."
