Yachting, Navy Blazers and Monograms
I have a total fascination with Ralph Lauren preppy, which I think may be a slightly odd obsession for a nice, zaftig, Jewish girl from New York City. With this tidbit of information about me, you should not be surprised that I love fancy monograms on everything. Accordingly, I made a fancy monogram stencil as a follow-up to my owl. I used it to monogram my new oversized tote bag.
I like that the monogram came out more edgey than preppy because as much as I want to rock riding pants and riding boots, I can’t. This bag suits me more. Before the end of the month, I may design a complementary stencil to add some additional flourish to the bag (it is pretty big).
I have a stenciled headboard on my wall and my grandmother told me I need to add a monogram – maybe it is time… I think instead I will monogram some pillowcases – less commitment. Oooo I simply love monograms. Better keep an eye on your stuff or I might just slap my monogram on that too!
Michelle Ward, what have you done to me, I am a stencil-happy exacto-knife wieldin’ maniac… To check out other people’s stencil happy behavior or cultivate your own, check out GPP Street Team Crusade No. 19.
