My sheets are monogrammed, so is my silverware and pretty much everything else I own. My rule is if it’s not moving, monogram it.”
We love Reese Witherspoon; she is cute, loves to tout being from the south and as the above quote says, she loves a monogram. She truly is America’s sweetheart and I got to meet her at the opening party of Draper James here in Dallas on September 28th. My dear friend Anne (who is also the faux Chief Marketing Officer of Two Funny Girls) added me as her plus one and we set out on a mission to get our photo taken with our beloved Reese.
Anne called me the day before the event with the brilliant idea Reese needed some pink monogrammed mocs from Two Funny Girls, and you know we immediately put those on the machine (after a quick google search for her shoe size). So after stressing over what to wear, I grabbed by big, black travel bag and carried the shoes with me all night. This was a really nice party, the store is a boutique, so it isn’t huge, but they had a tent with a carpeted floor and full bar, this 360 photo booth that we could never figure out what it was doing, nor could we figure out what to do with the file they sent us. #bygones.
The party was really nice, all these precious southern food served on silver plated trays and the tent was a buzz awaiting for Reese to arrive. Once she got there, we learned she was with her daughter (who looks just like her from Man in the Moon) and her husband. She was so gracious and kind to everyone who wanted to meet her. There was a small presentation of this cute art print that is in the store. We knew her time at the store was coming to an end, so Anne went up to her and gave her the monogrammed mocs, which she graciously accepted and was so attentive to Anne talking to her. And then she left. With no selfie with us!
And then, on our way home, by a twist of fate, we found ourselves at the same restaurant in the same parking lot as the Draper James store and she took this photo with us. Its like she is the middle letter of a 3 letter monogram between two girls who love a monogram as much as she does. Bliss. Pure Bliss. Thanks Reese (bc I know you are reading this) for being just as lovely as you portray on the big and small screens. It was a treat to celebrate the evening with you. -kCa
One of our biggest sellers on the site is our monogram clutch purse. We have been selling this timeless purse with classic monograms for years and it is always a customer favorite. So much so, that Southern Living reviewed the Two Funny Girls monogrammed purse on their Daily South Blog. This clutch is so perfect for a quick night out or a trip out of town when you don’t need to to carry not much more than your cell phone, some credit cards, lipstick and some cash. This purse will hold more, but really, do we need to take the whole purse with us on a night out?
Customers always ask, “what is the most popular color?” The answer is brown! Our brown monogram clutch purse is our numero uno seller with a brown monogram. The other colors behind brown are turquoise, creme and green. What is my favorite? Probably turquoise. It adds a great pop of color to any outfit across all the seasons. I love a pop of color in an outfit and if Southern Living gives it the thumbs up, you know it is okay to wear all over the south.
These are a very popular personalized bridesmaid gift. And several times brides have gotten a white or creme purse to carry as she is leaving the reception. Could anything be more adorable? We love these monogram clutch purses!
Umm.. What? That was the text I sent back to our PR manager when she texted me and said one of our monogram beach bags was selected to The TODAY Show with Kathie Lee and Hoda. Two Funny Girls and our love for monograms is going to be on national TV! Weee.
So the first week we got bumped, but that is how it goes in the news biz from time to time. But a short (seemed long) week later, a monogram mint ikat beach bag from Two Funny Girls was on on the TODAY show in a segment with Lilliana Vasquez and her Look for Less segment.
Do you like how we type the TODAY show name in all caps? # branding.
Seriously, this was huge for our little business that started so many years ago. We have organically grown into what we are today and are so excited to now be able to say, “as seen on The TODAY Show, with Hoda and Kathie Lee.”
This bag is the hit of the summer. It is over-sized. It is big. It is huge. This monogram beach bag can hold up to 6 towels (photo on the site) and is made of the best polyester that can repel water. Measuring 19.5″ L x 7.5″ W x 15.5″ H, this roomy bag is great to hold all your sun essentials such as beach towel, sunscreen, magazines and more! Features an inside zipper pouch (7.5″ x 5.5) plus a very roomy outside zipper pocket (12.5×10.5) each are the perfect home for your keys and phone in order to find them quickly without digging to the bottom of the bag.
