As you know, I have been celebrating big birthdays with the It’s a Style Thing Squad for the last year and we always take it to the next level with the squad surprises. Last March we did customised t-shirts for Dionne’s birthday in New York. This year I got surprised with AMAZING custom Dashikis in Dubai, so we had to pull out the stops for Neh’s birthday in Vegas.
Our first idea was custom slides but all I could find was the adidas version and that wasn’t big enough. If anyone does custom slides please get in touch because I am all about anything with my name, my initials or the blog name on.
Then I came across custom swimsuits by Luxury Craft on Instagram, thank God for the gram! As Luxury Craft are based in South Africa I took a huge risk working with them incase they didn’t arrive in time but we all agreed Neh would love them.
I contacted Luxury Craft and they were so quick to respond, the prices were reasonable and they assured me the swimsuits would arrive before my deadline. I decided on Neh Watch instead of Bae/ Bay Watch and I wanted the holiday hashtag #NehInVegas printed on the back.
They arrived about week after I placed the order, I was so surprised as they came all the way from South Africa. I loved them and the quality was fantastic. I do this annoying thing where I think I’m bigger than I am so I ordered the XL and it was way too big but I still made it work. The sizes are quite generous so I would advise going down a size.
When we presented Neh with her very own custom swimsuit at a pool party in Las Vegas on her birthday she actually cried. She either loved them so much, she was high on life because it was her birthday or she was just drunk! Either way the swimsuits were a hit and people kept wishing Neh a happy birthday, asking who is Neh? And generally asking us for photos, Neh was a celebrity for the day I did feel a little bit famous too, obviously I loved it.
Big love to Luxury Craft who made it all possible and delivered great quality in record time. You are ace and it was amazing working with you! You helped us make the birthday girl cry, priceless!
