Objects of Desire
The right notepad makes the outfit (really)
And you thought you could rule the office as long as you were rocking a gihugic pair of hoop earrings. A Marc Jacobs bag (from this season’s collection, thank you). Chloé boots.
No. Uh-uh. You’re nothin’ on the accessories catwalk if you saunter into that meeting with one of those bourgeois blue-lined yellow legal pads (and does it seriously say “Staples” along the binding? OMG.) These things were invented over 100 hundred years ago – would you show up at work in a corset and hoop skirt? I think not (I know, four-inch Louboutins aren’t far off on the comfort scale). You’ve got WAY more style than those people from the don’t-smile-in-photos era.
Never fear, Hable Construction is here – with traveler journals covered in their trademark modern textiles (read: stylish AND durable). There’s even a shiny satin ribbon so you can open right to the next blank page – on the spot, without hesitation, impressing the boss with your uber-preparedness and snap-to-it ‘tude, while your colleagues flip page after page of the Lethal Legal Monster, appearing flustered and out of it (not to mention so twentieth century). The pages are still lined but here we’re talking about a delicate cream papier.
Tres chic, mon chéri.
