Classic Prep Monograms is an online boutique featuring a curated collection of monogrammed and personalized gifts. Owner and Cincinnati native, Michelle Conrard Brinker, a fashionista in her own right, was inspired by the idea of helping others showcase their personal style by accentuating with her preppy accessories.

Brinker describes her boutique’s style at the intersection of preppy and modern. “At Classic Prep, we’re updating ‘preppy’ with fresh, modern monograms and designs,” she says.

It all started in January 2012 “with our very first sale of 14 inch wood monograms shipped to customers around Cincinnati,” Brinker says. And she hasn’t looked back since. Brinker is constantly on the hunt for new designers “that we just know our customers are going to absolutely love.”

Classic Prep Monograms will monogram scarves and other accessories.

Classic Prep Monograms is all about personalization and that doesn’t stop at jewelry. Shoppers will find home décor as well as party, holiday, office and tech accessories in a myriad of monogrammed choices.

Current fan favorite is the Gold Monogram Necklaces by Jane Basch that is also offered in silver and vermeil. According to Brinker it’s the perfect accessory for your fall wardrobe and versatile enough to be paired with almost any look.

Speaking of fall, Brinker is obsessed with a few of Classic Prep Monograms’ new offerings. Just in time for football season are the Game Day Beaded Monogram Bags. “We just made one for a Bengals fan to read ‘WHO DEY’,” says Brinker. They’re also gearing up for Apple’s upcoming release of the iPhone 7. Brinker says their “beautiful collection of Monogram iPhone 7 cases will both personalize and protect your new phone.

Brinker says her “current obsession is anything with a tassle,” and has the goods to prove it. Classic Prep Monograms currently offers a variety of tassled accessories from earrings to necklaces in a rainbow of colors.
