Obsession Alert: Name Necklaces

It was just recently that I re-watched that episode of Sex and the City where Carrie finds her "Carrie" Necklace in the bottom of her vintage clutch... you know the episode. She is in Paris with Alex and Big is on his way to sweep her off her feet, yada yada yada... well, imagine my delight when Name Plate Depot wanted to send me my very own name necklace to style as I saw fit. I know you're probably thinking, "haven't you had a name necklace before?". Actually, no I haven't so as you can imagine, I have been wearing the shiz out of this one! I have my very own "Amanda" necklace, which is like always wearing a stylish name tag!


In a quest to share this new necklace with the people, I Instagram'd a picture of me wearing it (how inventive I know) and got a lot of positive feedback including a little tit for tat, name necklace wise. My online bud, Bari J (very talented author, quilter, crafter, diva extraordinaire), posted a pictured of her wearing her name necklace from the 80's. We joked it was a great way for people to remember our names and how to spell them (hers admittedly more than mine). Besides the obvious fun that ensued, I am really digging this necklace. It's good quality, the font is cute and it matches pretty much anything I put on. It's one of those versaitle pieces you can wear 3 days in a row with 3 different outfits... so I guess I'll keep it ;-).

    I've been rockin a name necklace since 2002 - thanks to Sex and City (Carrie's name necklace had me obsessed and I had to have one). It is still one of my most fav pieces! Looks so good layered with other necklaces too - it IS such a versatile piece.

  9. I got my necklace from Survival of The Hippest. It 14kt gold with a small diamond. I had it customized. I added a longer stronger gold chain and a bigger diamond. It has my twitter handle for the name. I do not care if it goes in or out of style. I love it and its a great conversation piece.

  15. I love my name necklace as well! I recently got a 14k gold "Carrie" style at www.wow-imports.com for only $149 including shipping. I chose them for the price, selection and they had a previewer so I could see my name in every style. Based on a little research I did when shopping around, the necklace that Carrie wore on S&TC has a curl on the end.
