What Not to Monogram

Thanks to my momma for the idea for this week's Monogram Monday. As we all know, I follow the wise words of Reese Witherspoon (do not mention her arrest...she is still perfect in my mind) when it comes to monogramming, "if it isn't moving, monogram it." However, there really are some exceptions to this rule.
Hair Initialing
Well, I really hope that none of you ladies shave your heads just to get your initials put in your hair, but whatever floats your boat. There is no need to reassure people who you are by doing this. Plus, most people I know who get things shaved into their hair are 10 year-old boys who want to display their baseball all-star numbers.
Monogrammed Toes
This one was a bit of a debate for me. It is not so much that I think this is bad, as it might be taking things a bit far and a waste of money. Why pay for stickers on your toes only to have them chip and be useless in a week or so? Instead, put that money towards your next pedicure!
I like the nail color and flip flop though
Monogramming Yourself
"You know your addiction has gone too far when..." Seriously, this is excessive. Are you not planning on getting married? Because if you do, your monogram is going to change. If you are married, that wedding ring on your finger should suffice so that people are aware of your status. Monogramming yourself is excessive. If you must insist on monogramming yourself, how about we avoid the tramp stamp?
Why? Just why?

At the end of the day, it is a personal decision about what you want to monogram. Some people think I am totally ridiculous for monogramming everything that I do and for wanting to monogram more than I have, and that is fine. Let's just try to keep our addiction within reason please.
What is the most ridiculous thing you have ever seen monogrammed?


And I realize SATC Sunday was late last night so check it out here if you missed it!


  1. I have to disagree on the toenail monograms. If done properly, they last for at least 2 weeks. I didn't monogram both of my toes, just one large toe (with a hot pink back). It was worth it, to me :)
    We did it for my wedding (all of my bridesmaids) and it was a hit.
    Why not for a special occasion???

    1. I actually debated whether or not to put that one up because i think it can be cute. my point was more that if you are going to wear them ALL the time, that seems like a bit of a waste, just get a pedicure. i totally think it works for a special occasion, especially a wedding (great idea)!
