maybe it’s my private school education + southern upbringing coming back to haunt me, but recently i’ve found myself doing a lot of monogramming…
my weekender was a gift from my parents on a trip to italy, and ever since, it’s been my favorite piece of luggage. i don’t believe in checking bags [on a flight]…
after some research and thought, i decided having my initials laser engraved might be a better bet than having them printed or plain/foil stamped. the leather had already been treated, and was softening and getting a patina from my having used it, and i was afraid any other method wouldn’t last. only time will tell!
just received the larger stamped disc charm in the mail today…
ordered this charm from JLynn Creations – i added it to a sterling diamond charm necklace i already had, and, voila!
…and finally, my monogrammed canvas tote!

guess you can’t ignore 12 years of prep school influence.
loving the menswear in “young british power“, an editorial shot by photographer massimo pamparana for italian style magazine‘s fall/winter 2009 issue, as well as a few captures of milan fashion week by fashion photo-blogger tommy ton for gq.com. perhaps a revival of [1981 british television adaptation of evelyn waugh’s 1945 novel] brideshead revisited?
