what's in a name?

I have gotten a lot of positive and insightful feedback after posting about possibly changing my name. I haven't quite decided if I will change my name or not, and when I do that will likely be between fiance and I until the wedding gets closer. Although I write a blog for anyone to read, there are certain aspects of my life that I like to keep to myself/between us. I think it helps make our relationship that much stronger. I'm more than happy to share some things with you all, but there is a lot that exists as a bond between us as we start this journey together.
Ok so I totally got sidetracked there. Anyway, if i do decide to change my name, ACG will no longer be my initials. It will become ACGC (my uncle charlie joked that we need to have an ACDC set at the wedding to celebrate) or AGC. Either way, I'm going to need new shoes, bags, linens, and more. I have a number of monogrammed items and I'm sure I'll continue to use them, but I will definitely need new. Here are a few things that I am adding to the "if i change my monogram" wishlist..

This necklace has been on the top of my wishlist for awhile now.
I already have two pairs of these and absolutely love them.
I'll have to update my stationary too

I have these currently and for $66 for 500, they're great to have around for everyday use


Of course I'm a total handbag girl and luckily there are a few options out there...

 
I would really like a Goyard Monogrammed tote.  I'm not quite sure which colors and they don't offer any purchases online, so you really have to go to the store.  I think LC's white one below is stunning, but there are so many choices.


On their website they explain, "we believe this long-standing commitment to our individual clients is best offered by direct, meaningful contact with them.  La Maison Goyard therefore does not engage in any forms of e-commerce, such as those offered by online catalogues, or through sales generated on e-commerce websites."  Basically if you would like to purchase one of these for me with my new initials, you should come to NYC for a visit so we can go to Bergdorf's. 


Quite frankly, I think I need to get a sewing/embroidery machine (can you register for that? haha), because give the opportunity, I would monogram just about everything in my closet.  My LLBean, herve chapellier bags, polos, and more are all monogrammed.

(as always, please excuse my lavishly expensive "wish list"  i figure if you're going to dream, you might as well dream big)
