New ways to personalize your stuff
It’s no longer just your preppy aunt who’s donning a monogrammed tee and that ever-popular L.L. Bean bag. These days, monograms are popping up on everything from old-school signet rings to serving trays. Take a peek at some of the styles we’re ready to put our mark on.
Jewelry Channel your inner Carrie Bradshaw and invest in some adorable personalized jewels from Sarah Chloe. We love her collection of monogrammed pieces, especially the delicate Ella adjustable bangles ($98). For a fun look, layer Catbird’s stackable alphabet rings ($92 each) in a set of three or use the tiny heart to reveal a love interest.
Accessories Bottega Veneta’s monogrammed collection ($350 to $4,960) gives leather goods an extra seal of approval. Type your initials into the homepage and uncover a tailored selection of handbags, luggage and accessories all featuring your motif. Stubbs & Wootton, the Palm Beach purveyors of fancy slippers, give your feet the royal treatment as well with their bespoke embroidered monograms ($600 or $900, depending on stitching).
Home Finally, bring a little piece of you into your abode using Jonathan Adler’s “Design Your Own” feature ($125 to $595, including the item), which lets you monogram everything from rugs to pillows to tote bags (hint: they make perfect gifts). Design Darling also offers a cute ice bucket ($42) and clear salt and pepper shakers ($24)--perfect additions to a backyard barbecue.
