Here at Wardrobe, we’re all massive fans of Sex and the City. I mean, it’s no coincidence that they were a gang of four and so are we? Oh and while we may not have their budget, our wardrobes aren’t half bad either. So it’s not a surprise that we’re influenced by one of our favourite shows.
The one thing that we all wanted when we first met years ago was a name necklace. Carrie’s iconic necklace inspired us to want our own. There was a debate whether name necklaces were tacky but we were all in agreement that done the right way they could be an understated stylish touch to an outfit.
I never got my ‘Carrie’ necklace until now.
Not only did Tatty Devine gift us this amazing necklace with our blog name but they offered me a chance to get my own name designed- how could I refuse?
Off I went to Selfridges where they have a concession on the fourth floor. I didn’t know what to expect but the sales advisor Bethany was so helpful. Choosing a name necklace is really easy and actually you don’t even need to have your name. Once you’ve decided what you want on your necklace you go to step 2- picking a colour. With so many styles to choose from I went for a mirror gold finish. Note that you get a bigger colour range online then you do in store. I decided to use the font ‘Sundae’ for my name necklace after looking at an example. I wanted something quite simple and felt that style ticked that box.
You can also choose a charm to put on your necklace. It was always going to be an anchor- always. Although I do love skulls too… I decided I wanted my anchor to be a different colour so chose a glitter black finish. I needed Bethany’s help for this as I just couldn’t pick a colour! I picked a gold chain to go with my necklace and that was that- done!
A few days later I collected my necklace and was so chuffed with it. I’m glad I picked gold as it’s a colour that will go with most things.
I waited a long time to get a ‘Carrie’ necklace but instead I got a ‘Sunny’ one and you know, I’m glad. It’s individual, just like me! :)
Have you got a name necklace?
