Outfit Details: Dress (Seven Sisters by Mendocino), Handbag (Kate Spade), Boots (Nine West), Pearl-beaded Necklace + Bracelets + Earrings (Butterfly Beads), Charm Necklace (NAYME Inc.)

Happy day 2 of World MasterCard Fashion Week! I can feel the exhaustion already but it's worth it because the shows are great so far. The highlight for me last night was definitely Pink Tartan (who recently launched an e-commerce site, LOVE it) - this Canadian designer just gets me. I'm also thinking of investing in a chic cape for fall/winter 2013. They've been featured in almost every show so far.

Today I'm wearing this beautiful dress from Seven Sisters, an in-house brand of Mendocino. The moment I saw it I knew I had to have it! I bought it instantly without even trying it on. Good thing it fits, no? I've paired it with black tights and boots from Nine West, it's unfortunately still chilly outside so gotta keep warm somehow. I decided to go with my Kate Spade bag since it's pretty and can fit a lot of my junk.

I'm wearing a special, dainty little necklace today. It's called the NAYME necklace. I have a little story to tell you. Whenever I used to go to gift shops I'd always see personalized keychains, necklaces and bracelets with people's names on them but they never had mine and it would make me really sad. I even remember crying one time because I wanted a license plate that you put on your room door but they couldn't get one for my name. I had given up on trying to find a piece, anything, with my name. Recently I came across NAYME Inc. (pronounced "name"), which is a sterling silver necklace with a pendant designed to symbolically represent the meaning of a name.

Louise Henry, owner of Nayme Inc., found inspiration for this when she was on a trip in Florida last summer. She, like me, would always look to see her name on a keychain or bracelet but thought they were so tacky, and that's when she decided to make something that revolves around a name but more subtle, prettier and meaningful.

When I met Louise and she told me about her company, the first thing that came to mind was whether she would be able to find a pendant for my name. After a while she finally pulled out the beautiful, black-ribboned gift box and I was in tears...





She made a customized Nayme necklace for me! I honestly haven't stopped wearing it since. Here is proof that I wore at at three difference occasions and there will be many, many more.


The Nayme necklace is delicate, pretty and can be worn as a statement piece or easily paired with other necklaces. You can check the online store to see if your name is already featured or request a customized pendant.
