This week while I was thrifting I found these two awesome quarter-zip sweaters! Like I said in my last post, it is already sweater-weather here in Kent, Ohio, so I need as many cute sweaters as possible! I don’t know about all of you but I am a HUGE fan of monograms! I think they are just so cute. Buying monogrammed items on websites such as Marleylilly.com and Etsy.com get really expensive but, if you can thrift the things you want monogrammed it will save you a ton of money!
In Kent, Ohio we have the cutest store downtown called The Dragonfly! They monogram ANYTHING for $5. Yep, you read that correctly, $5!!!! So, I brought my two sweaters to them and picked out my colors for the monograms! I cannot wait to show you all the finished products once I have them. They are going to take a little under a week to be finished, which if you ordered something like this online it could take up to a month to get to you.
My monogram is DMR (My full name is Danie Rylee Minor), and I know a lot of people ask me why the M is in the middle. For a women’s monogram the first initial of your last name is always bigger and set in the middle because it is thought of as the most important name because it is your family name! For the grey sweater I decided to go with a vibrant pink monogram and for the pink sweater I decided to get a gold one that says ΧΩ and underneath of it in white it says Lambda Delta because that is my chapter’s name! I am thrilled about my two sweaters and if you live near Kent, Ohio and are looking for a cute gift for someone, or something cute for yourself you should definitely visit The Dragonfly!
The cost of both of my items including the monogram is $18! For most places online you cannot get anything monogrammed for under $30. So, remember to THRIFT THRIFT THRIFT!
