The Designer: Monika Chiang, 38, Style Maven
Her Favorite Things: Chiang, whose eponymous fashion label has boutiques in New York and Los Angeles, is crazy about meaningful jewelry. "I have an evil eye bracelet that I never take off." She also has a heart-shaped stone that she dipped in gold and carries around when she travels.
Her Everyday Look: "I dress by mood, so I don't really plan ahead—I open my closet and think, How am I feeling today?"
Her Merrymaking Style: "Lately I've been wearing dresses with an open back, and then I'll pile on the necklaces or bracelets. It's all about the bold statement!"

For the trendsetter: Jewelry and accessories from Istanbul, Mexcio City, or Manila
For the nester: Unique pillows and vases
