My Style: Clutching at My Own Initials

Whistles Monogram Clutch Bag

Fashion has gone crazy for personalisation over the last two years. I guess it relates to the world’s shaky financial situation, as consumers are only opening their wallets for pieces that are truly special and unique. Whistles are the latest brand to get in on the act, and have launched a Monogram Pop-Up Shop, which has been travelling around the UK for the last few weeks.

The bespoke service has been set up just in time for Christmas, so if you’re stuck for gift ideas why not treat someone to a clutch bearing their initials. The Monogram Pop-Up is currently based in Whistles’ Leeds store and will also arrive at the Dover Street boutique on November 14th (both until November 20th). Then it will finish it’s tour in Bath and Harrogate, from November 21st until December 12th. At £40 a pop – plus the cost of the bag itself – it’s not exactly cheap, but is definitely one of life’s more affordable luxuries. So get personalising while you can!

And now comes the fun part: can you guess what my middle name is? Florence, Faye, Frances, Freya… Give it your best shot!

  • I had no idea that Whistles were doing this. How chic. And how perfect from Christmas presents.
