How to Transform Your Bedroom into Your jewelry Box

"My vanity is a cozy spot; it's completely personal and all mine. I keep my rings and earrings in leaf dishes and hang lockets around a bust that I bought in Paris... Stacked jewelry boxes keep my things tidy on a long console... I hang my necklaces over my mirror. I'm constantly changing them up."

-Monica Rich Kosann

Whatever journey you plan to take with the person you love, a piece of jewelry will no doubt make a memory and begin a story you'll always share.

It's National Clean Off Your Desk Day!

It's National Clean Off Your Desk Day!

This week was National Clean Off Your Desk Day, and while it’s a task we all dread, you have to admit it feels pretty good after you accomplish it. While what you have on your desk tells a story (and you know here at Monica Rich Kosann we love things that tell a story), that story doesn’t need to be discombobulated and all over the place. Here are a few tips from Monica herself on cleaning one’s desk, it’s a new year after all…

QO7A1375-610x496

Reorganize. I am constantly making piles out of piles. It actually inspires me. I like to reorganize my photos and my mood board all the time - switching out new photos for old ones.

Decorate with storage. I love to keep pretty bowls to my desk, so I can keep filling them with new trinkets I pick up and find on my flea market hunts. I have a “charm mason jar” on my desk at all times where I just add little things I don’t want to throw out - stubs, buttons, souvenirs of travel, etc. I also keep a lot of boxes on my desk.

Make files. I keep all business cards in a filed box on my desk, and I also make files for everything such as “pending,” “meetings,” designs,” "new ideas,” and “bills.”

Keep invitations where you can see them. I keep invitations to parties in front of me at all times, and use them on my moodboard, since I often forget to look at my calendar. It really does help!

Emma Stone’s Style Evolution

Emma Stone’s Style Evolution

W magazine's February issue boasts actress Emma Stone on the cover, wearing the Monica Rich Kosann poesy ring. We've slowly realized that Stone herself is a lot like the poesy ring; a smart and clever beauty that - though minimal and classic on the outside - always has something more that's hidden on the inside that you're curious to find the answer to. 

We've been in love with Emma Stone since her debut in Superbad - the high school comedy where she stars alongside Jonah Hill and Michael Cera. Even then, in a mere teeshirt and jeans baking in Home Ec. (remember home ec.?), we knew this girl was going to be a force to be reckoned with in both the acting and style worlds; she just has that look. It's a rare image; one that involves a combination of girl next door, classicism and also features that beget curiosity.

When you watch Emma, there's always something about her features you didn't notice before that you're noticing in a new role. Whether it was her curls in The Help, her girl-next-door smile in Spiderman, her unexpected mannerisms in Cabaret, or her dark eyes in her newest movie Birdman (a probably Oscar contender), there's always something about Emma that surprises you. It made her the perfect subject to wear our poesy in this month's W, especially when she is at the peak of her career both stylistically and artistically.

Take a tour through some of our favorite style moments from Emma Stone throughout her career...

10 Classic Ski Style Essentials

10 Classic Ski Style Essentials

After traveling to the Stein Eriksen Lodge In Utah over Christmas, Monica and the team here at MRKStyle were inspired by the style and story behind all things skiing. The lodge itself was named after the Norwegian gold medal Olympian Stein Eriksen, whose old black and white photos cover some of the walls in the lobby. We couldn’t help but notice the cableknit sweaters, classic emblemmed v-necks and color-blocked patterns Eriksen always used to be skiing in...maybe his impeccable style lended itself to his dexterous moves on the mountain; it’s possible! We picked ten classic essentials for your upcoming ski trip inspired by that timeless mountain style we all know and love…

1. Inverni Wrap Scarf

2. Flannel Work Shirt

3. L.L. Bean Boots

Inspired by: White Christmas

Inspired by: White Christmas

Last weekend was the 60th anniversary of White Christmas, a childhood favorite of ours we can't help but watch annually this time of year. We don’t know if it’s Bing Crosby’s voice, Rosemary Clooney’s steel blue eyes, Vera-Ellen’s dance numbers or Danny Kaye’s jests, but the whole experience leaves us feeling sentimental. We couldn't help but wonder what Monica Rich Kosann piece we’d give each character (yes we mean both the men and the women). The four stars seem born for accessories with a story, whether it’s when they’re at war, on the dance floor or cozied up by a fire at a B & B in Vermont (that covers basically all the bases of the plot line). Here’s what we would give each:

Rosemary Clooney (Betty Haynes): As the older sister, Betty always seems to be the ‘Mother Hen,’ seemingly wise beyond her years. So to her we’d give the Wisdom Owl Charm.

Vera-Ellen (Judy Haynes): For Judy we’d give the “Never Fear” Poesey ring. As the younger sister she’s the spitfire of the group, and always seems to be unafraid to stir up trouble and rock the boat (and do insane 15 minute dance numbers in the process).

Danny Kaye (Phil Davis): For Phil we’d give this Carpe Diem leather journal. As the songwriter of the crew, he needs somewhere to keep all his song ideas…It’s the carpe diem one so he knows to seize the day with every new song he writes.

Bing Crosby (Bob Wallace): There was a time when men had lockets with a picture of the woman they loved (who was waiting for them upon their return) inside, when they were at war. So to Bob we’d give the classic four photo locket with a satin finish, where I’m sure he’d keep a picture of Rosemary Clooney, and those kids he talks about having one day.
