Day 11: Calling Cards
A classy and fabulous life will always include rubbing elbows with new and fascinating people.  You must always endeavor to allow your amazing self to shine. First impressions matter, but I believe how you are remembered is much more important.  The classy way to make a lasting impression and remain in touch is to have a calling card.

I must admit that this is something that yours truly needs to work on herself!  This week I had the pleasure of meeting the lovely Noelani who helms the fabulous Mon Petit Chou Chou and was green with envy over her ladylike calling cards.  A fabulous lady definitely deserves a fabulous calling card!  And while I may not be putting my face on mine — we can’t all be as ravishing as Ms. Saint above — I am officially in the market!

Earlier in the month I talked about how much I love Los Angeles custom letterpress Sugar Paper and their fabulous social stationary — luckily they also have some very beautiful calling cards!

Once I have my cards in hand, I will be in need of a classy way to carry them.  I delight in the fact that this is a bit of a masculine accessory.  I can’t decide if I should get something on the girly side or embrace my inner dandy…  Below, a few options that caught my eye.
