Madewell sent out an email yesterday introducing their Monogram Shop, and reminding Madewell shoppers that they can receive complimentary monogramming on select bags, pouches, wallets, key fobs, leather wallet case for iPhone® 5/5s, and even a belt until 10.20.14.
(Click here to see all the eligible items).
They also have a post on their blog about the Modern Monogram, which suggests that you step outside the traditional monogram of your initials, and go for your favorite three-letter word or phrase such as PYT, RAD, OUI, or BON. (You can see that post here).
I absolutely love Monograms, and feel that having an item that you love personalized with your initials makes it even more special. I also think that giving a monogrammed item as a gift is a wonderful way of showing that friend or loved one that they are extra dear to your heart. A monogram also turns an otherwise fairly ordinary item, such as a key fob, into something much more special and fun.
I have had monogramming done on clothing items at J.Crew, but have not yet purchased a monogrammed item from Madewell. However, if I were to get something, it would be one of these...
4. The Transport Tote in English Saddle or True Black - I love this in English Saddle but also really like the contrast color of the handles on the True Black colorway
10. The Paintstripe Transport Tote - pair this with the The Medium Pouch Clutch in Dot...cute, cute, cute!
What do you think of the free monogramming promotion at Madewell? Are you planning to take advantage of this offer? Have you already had a bag or other item monogrammed there? If so, how did it turn out? Were you pleased with the results? Please do share!
