It's only been a couple of weeks since I last wore my DIY Statement sweatshirt, but I couldn't wait to remix it. Because it's such a basic, classic piece, I paired it with a couple other basics: my black boyfriend blazer and a pair of dark skinny jeans. To add interest, I wore my multicolored glitter sandals, grabbed the super-rad magazine clutch I found at Marshalls, and a clear, chunky statement necklace. On top of that statement necklace, I layered my brand new rose gold "triplyksis" necklace.





And in honor of the debut of my new nameplate necklace, I'm talking about the origins of my social media alias, @triplyksis!

Q. What does triplyksis mean?

A. Nothing, actually. It's a nonsense word.

Q. So where did it come from then?

A. Since the days of dial up and AOL chatrooms, I've always disliked having a screenname/username with a bunch of random numbers and symbols. But AOL was so overly saturated with accounts that every username I wanted was already taken. But I refused to give in, so I gave up and followed my brother's lead. For his name, he had simply rolled his fist across the keyboard and came up with 'triplyk.' Since I am his sis, I just added 'sis' to the end. And thus triplyksis was born. It's been easy to stick with because it means I don't have to come up with a new name for each account I create.

Q. But how do you say it?

A. Well, my brother pronounced his username like "trip-lick." Since I was following his lead, that would mean my user name would be pronounced "trip-lick-sis." However, I'm well aware that most people say "triply-kiss" in their heads. Saying "triply-kay-sis" is another common guess."

I love a blazer with a tee or sweatshirt!

And I'm sure we've already discussed this but you are "triply-kay-sis" to me. ;) That, or "my really fucking adorable friend, Adiel". Both work.

This is so cool - I always thought it was "triple kiss" for a long time! ha. But I basically have the same story with one of my handles I use for other logins, I've been using it since my brother made it for me over ten years ago! It was my first email address in high school.
