Shopping Guide: 10 Desks For Getting Stuff Done

Shopping Guide: 10 Desks For Getting Stuff Done
A desk is a great way to make you feel like a real-life adult-type person (I don’t have a desk). Desks give you a place to stretch out and get work done away from the distraction of the TV, a dedicated place to focus your energies when you need to do work, and perhaps most importantly, a place to hide all the floating papers, junk mail and ephemera that can sometimes take over your life. After the jump, we’ve found a selection of desks to pretty up your place.

Galliano Blames Booze And Drugs For Anti-Semitism

We’ve all probably done and said some pretty stupid things while wasted. But as stupid as former Dior designer John Galliano? Well … Galliano claims that the anti-Semitic rant he went on. which led to him being fired, was a result of booze and drugs. Galliano is on trial in Paris on public insult charges (a real thing in Paris) and, after being forced to watch the tape of himself saying “I love Hitler,” offered an apology. “I’m apologizing because that man you see up there is not John Galliano. I have no recollection of these events,” he said. “I read about them afterwards.” Galliano blamed his job with Dior for his exhaustion and drug use. Keep reading »

“Mad Men”‘s Kiernan Shipka Makes Her Own Clothes

So, aside from getting to play future-lesbian (we think, anyway) daughter Sally Draper on “Mad Men,” the extremely articulate and thoughtful Kiernan Shipka has a couple other tricks up her sleeve. The 11-year-old actress mostly dresses in vintage-y frocks from Portuguese designer Papo d’Anjo, but she also designs and wears her own bespoke creations, inspired by the swinging ’60s. Her wardrobe approach puts my Virgo perfectionism to shame. “I love organization, so I split my clothes into two closets according to seasons. Though I have to go to the guestroom to pull my fall and winter items, it’s still much easier than cramming all my clothes together in my one closet. I love ‘space’ in between hanging clothes.” Whoa, Kiernan, you’re kind of making me salivate with your intense organizational stylings. And check out her can’t-live-without list: “My dogs, Cole Haan boots, Mason Pearson hairbrush, headbands, and computer!” Cole Haan boots! We can’t even afford those. Check out Kiernan in the adorable blue-and-white checked dress she made above. [The Coveteur] Keep reading »

Owl On The Prowl

My mom collected owl art before she had kids, so our basement was chock full of owl paintings, lithographs and tapestries (okay, my mom came of age in the ’70s.) These owls are a tasteful update on the owl obsession, perfect as a shelf objet d’art or desk paperweight. In a word, they’re a hoot.

The Best BFFs Ever

In my dreams, Danny Devito and RuPaul spend all of their free time together, shining each other’s bald heads, and eating Jewish deli at Kantor’s in Hollywood. Occasionally, Devito and wife Rhea Perlman invite RuPaul over for Must-See TV and Sloppy Joes. And sometimes, the three of them like to take a drive up the coast in Devito’s ’67 convertible. RuPaul’s long legs necessitate that he sits in the back, but he does get to pick the music–disco mostly. Please let this be true. Keep reading »

Mary Kate And Ashley Olsen Want To Mail You T-Shirts

This week, mini-moguls Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen launched Stylemint, their line of curated T-shirts. It works similarly to its sister company, Jewelmint, run by actress Kate Bosworth and stylist Cher Coulter, where members sign up to get exclusive pieces of jewelry sent to them each month. With the Olsen’s Stylemint, the tees will sell for an actually affordable $29.99 each, and the more you buy, the more specific your style recommendations will get. We are not big T-shirt wearers, so this doesn’t sound particularly compelling, but given the Olsen’s success with clothing lines Elizabeth & James and The Row, these probably won’t be your average tees. Would you bother buying tees online? Even if they’re curated by style icons Mary Kate and Ashley? [Stylemint] Keep reading »
