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!

newest addition to my closet: black/black nike destroyer.
if you haven’t heard about these beauties yet, they’re nike’s take on the classic letterman jacket – a much better take. there are different versions, such as one with a zippered hood; i went for the version below. i’m seeing an overwhelming number of examples of gents in these, but i think the ladies could and should also partake. besides being lightweight, warm, having 4 pockets and looking très badass, they’re also completely customizable – color combinations, patches, the works. (i couldn’t find a live link on nike at the time of this posting, so i used a link to one of nike’s blogs about customized destroyers.)
jacket – leather sleeves = wool vest. voila!

i was never good at origami.
i’ve always admired the look though – which is probably one of the many reasons why i’m completely enamored with haider ackermann’s f/w 2010 runway collection. that, and the dark colors, the rich leather, the fur…
