elevating everyday supplies

September 2, 2010

In our world of events, you never can be too prepared.  We bring gobs of goodies to each event — our own mini version of your local office supply store.  Being the interesting and ever-curious ladies that we are, plus a lot of love in the blog world over this bandage beauties, we wondered “Could we make it more chic?”   

The answer – of course – is YES.  Elevating everyday supplies from Office Depot & the drugstore to Barneys and Bergdorf.  Voila!

Wear some bling wherever you go!   

Best part: one dollar from the sale of each tin will go to Design Ignites Change, an organization that engages high school and college students in design and architecture projects that address social issues in their own communities.    

We may have to “accidentally” give ourselves a paper cut!

We’re more likely to be found pounding the keys, but with these Swarovski pencils, we’d trade keyboards for college-ruled (or wide-ruled, if that’s your style) notepaper any day.   

Fun fact: did you know you can print college-ruled paper templates from Microsoft Office Online?  Genius!

 Plaid, paisley, stripes – duct tape sheds its single color hues.  We’ll never roll tape to hide behind a poster again!

Forget plain, rounded silver. These would add such a fun element to stacks of paper.    

So would these: Elephant and Duck Paperclips!

Have you found any fabulous & chic office supplies?  Any bling that makes your workday more attractive?  We’d love to hear about it, and maybe you’ll influence us to stock our meeting kit with some aesthetically pleasing goods!
