My name is Allie and I am a proud survivor of Danielle‘s bachelorette party.
I am so glad I was able to help celebrate my dear friend’s journey from single lady to married woman this weekend in Washington DC.
Shopping for frilly underthings for yourself is always fun.
However, I experienced
my normal gift giving anxi ety an unexpected emotional platitude when it came time to find an appropriate gift for the sexy-underwear themed shower.
What if i show up with an S&M leather corset and the other girls bought her footie pajamas?! Or if I pick out a pretty, granny-chic nightgown and the rest of the bridal party channeled Agent Provocateur naughtiness?!
So I decided to personalize my own set of underwear.
I picked out a coordinating colorway of pretty little panties that matched Danielle’s aesthetic, wedding colors and motifs. Gap Body provided a nice variety of styles and cuts at a great price. I love their lingerie because it is simple but has great little details- perfect for monogramming! I even found a pair featuring tiny birds – a prominent aspect of her wedding theme.
It would have been a magical experience had the shop assistant not asked me why I was picking out so many pairs of XS underwear and directed me to my ol’ trusty size Medium bucket. Rude.
The Embroidery Place really saved the day when it came to customizing my gift for the lingerie shower. Not only did the gentleman on West 30th Street spend over an hour helping me decide on the monograms and personalizations but he finished my embroidery job within 24 hours, a day earlier than expected!
It all could have gotten a bit too curious there (Umm, do you mind embroidering this wedding date on the crotch of these sheer panties?!) but in the end, it turned out lovely!
And now that I’ve finally found a reliable embroidery shop in NYC, the world should probably prepare itself.
“What Jackson? You didn’t want all of your earthly possessions monogrammed?”
