How far back is tradition? Monogramming goes way back to Ancient Greece where the coins had one or two letters of the city's name. Monogramming has come a long way and is a style. It doesn't have to be JUST a status symbol. A monogram tells a story of who you are and your individual style. Besides that, it does wonderful things to your wardrobe and other items such as linens, silverware, stationery, and handbags.
A monogram consists of a person's initials — usually a variation on the first,
middle, and last name. Tell your story in your monogram. Monograms come in a variety of letter styles. Location is the next decision - where on the item do I put it? If you're monogramming a dress, I would suggest placing it on the bottom left front of the dress. A handbag is another great item to personalize - location in the middle. Rain jackets, vests, and sweatshirts can carry a monogram on the hood, front chest area, on a pocket, or on the right of left front bottom depending on the cut and style of the garment.
If you're acronym crazy or a social media guru, you can monogram what you want (e.g., "XOXO" for hugs and kisses or "DWBH:" for Don't Worry Be Happy - or whatever your heart desires.)
Be you. Tell the story you want...in style!
