 What kind of patterns and clothing items work well?

Invest in a few basic clothing items that will not only last through the summer, but can also work during other seasons as well!

Pair bright patterns with neutral colors to provide a balance that is fun and also easy on the eyes!

Always dress to impress – you never know who you are going to meet while walking along the boardwalk by your favorite ocean or run into while sipping a nice iced coffee at an outdoor cafĂ©.

Get yourself a sarong! Sarongs are the best, multi-functional article of clothing you can have in your closet this summer. They can be used as not only a skirt, but also a toga dress or a wrap on colder nights. Get a few in different colors to match anything in your wardrobe!

And don’t forget to always wear flip flops whenever you can get away with it!

The Girls of Bling Ring love their Personalized Jewelry!

Claire Julien Name Necklace Bling Ring
"Chloe" in the Bling Ring is fabulous with her name necklace!
Sophia Coppola's latest film, the "Bling Ring" is about a true story of a gang of teenagers who rob various celebrity homes. In the movie the teenagers play celebrity and fame obsessed young kids who will go to any lengths to be be like the rich and famous. Although Coppola's latest film is styled quite differently then her other slower, more existential  style movies, the Bling Ring still has many moments where Sophia's style shines through, albeit in a louder and faster pace.

Sophia Coppola chose a relatively unknown cast for her gang of robbers, save for Emma Watson, who plays bad girl Nikki, a far cry from any of her previous roles, most notably as Hermione Granger of the Harry Potter series.   Pictured above, Claire Julien plays Chloe, a well-to-do hipster girl who loves to party and do drugs. She loves to wear her name necklace in a number of scenes, showing off her "Bling" style. Chloe isn't the only one who loves personalized jewelry in the movie. Emma Watson, as shown below, wears a "Foxy" necklace in the movie. The movies main character, played by Katie Chang, also wear an initial disc necklace in some of her wild party scenes.

Emma Watson Foxy Name Necklace

The Bling Ring opened the "Un Certain Regard" at the Cannes Film Festival this past May. The movie has gotten  great review, especially Emma Watson who pulls off an American valley girl accent perfectly. The Bling Ring really set Emma Watson as an actress (not just "the girl from Harry Potter"). Emma is totally believable of this home-schooled party girl who just loves to rob!

The Bling Ring is all about brands and the obsession for them, and what better way to brand yourself than with personalized jewelry? Watch the Bling Ring to see how these bad girls style their personalized jewelry!

Gift Ideas For The Wedding Party

Giving Gifts to the Wedding Party

The newly wedded couple not only receives gifts, but they are also expected to give gifts to their wedding party. Finding the perfect present expresses thanks to family and friends who worked hard to ensure this special day goes off without a hitch. The groomsmen, bridesmaids, parents of the bride and groom, and even the ring bearer and flower girl should all be included in the list of gifts.

What Do These Gifts Mean?

The wedding party, aside from the catering staff, the person officiating the wedding, photographer and so on (all who get paid by the way), work extremely hard to ensure that the wedding day is perfect and there are no snafus. They help shoulder the stress so the bride and groom can be calm on their wedding day and truly enjoy this very special occasion. This thoughtful gift serves as both as a reminder of the special day and how they helped as well as a token of appreciation.

What Kind of Gifts to Give?

Infinity Necklace with Initial
 is a truly thoughtful gift!
Personalized gifts tend to make the best kind of gift to give. It shows just a bit more thought and effort. Remember to select something that each group in the wedding party will like. For example, purchase monogram necklaces or personalized infinity jewelry for the bridesmaids, monogram cufflinks for the groomsmen, and even a cute name necklace for the flower girl. Other personalized gift options include bags, wallets, and scarves. Head over to our site, MyNameNecklace to check out some of these gift options. 



When Should Gifts be Purchased?

There is really no specific time frame for purchasing wedding party gifts. A good rule of thumb is sooner rather than later, especially if there is a personalization element to the items, requiring extra time for the gifts to be made. Always keep an eye out and if there is something that screams the perfect gift, get it!

When is the Best Time to Give Wedding Party Gifts?

Our love necklace is
perfect for the flower girl!
Wedding party gifts are traditionally given during the rehearsal dinner right before the wedding. The idea is that the bride and groom give a toast thanking their wedding party and then distributing the gifts. Especially if the gift can be used the day of the wedding (for example, all the bridesmaids wear their monogram necklace with their dress), it is best to give before the big day!

Gifts to Give to the Bride & Groom

Great Gifts to Give to the Bride & Groom

Wedding season is upon us and that means fancy outfits, champagne toasts, and dancing until the sun comes up; celebrating the newlyweds and wishing them nothing but years and years of marital bliss. But it also means coming up with the perfect gift to give to them. Guests want to pick out gifts that mean something to the newlyweds, can help them on their journey into marriage, or remind them of this very special day. If you are struggling to come up with the perfect gift, have no fear, because we are here to help you out!

Personalized Gifts

Cufflinks are a great gift
for the groom!
 One of the best gifts you can give is something that signifies this special day and what a wedding day actually
means. Making it personalized makes it even better, because it will be something the couple can hold dear to them. For example, a monogram necklace displaying the brides new initials or both the bride and groom is a great way to go. And don’t worry about men; they can enjoy a monogram as well with a pair of beautiful monogram cufflinks.



Breakable heart necklace is a gift
for both the bride and groom!
Another great idea is the breakable heart necklace. On the one side you can have the name of each person engraved, and on the back, you can get the wedding date engraved. You can find these types of jewelry at MyNameNecklace. Other great personalized gift ideas include wine glasses, picture frames, towels, a cake server and knife set, and framed canvas prints. 

Wedding Registry

Chances are the new couple hit up their favorite shops to create online wedding registries of everything they need for their new home together at all their favorite shops. If you are stumped on what to get them, these registries are a great option. Most couples include a list of relevant websites in their wedding invitation.

Go in on a Big Item with a Group

If you are going to a wedding with a bunch of friends, you can all chip in and get them something big for their new home. This can be an original piece of art, a large kitchen appliance, furniture, or even a barbeque!

Money

And if all else fails, cash is always a great option for a new couple just starting out!


Remember weddings are all about the bride (a little about the groom as well…) so get them a gift they will sure to remember you by!
