Sexy Office Supplies

Office supplies can be sexy. Photo by Russell + Hazel

As I finish off my office, I needed to get a baseline of office supplies.  After a trip to Office Max it was clear I was missing something.  I needed something fashionable….something femeine…..alright, I’ll say it.  I needed something that was at least a little bit sexy.

Side note:  I can say “sexy” because my father doesn’t ready my blog.  He was asking me questions about the business the other day and I said jokingly, “Dad – don’t you read the blog?”  He replied seriously while waving his hand, “I don’t read that shit.”  By “shit” I will assume he means every blog.  My mother, on the other hand, reads this blog and comments frequently.  You’ll see her in the comments as Cindy.

So, this weekend I took to the internet to find some office accessories to fit the bill.  If you’re looking to add a little zip to your office, here are my suggestions:

CB2

Extremely modern with clean lines.

Container Store

Clearly this store has one of everything, but I was especially enamored with their selection of acrylic.

Kate’s Paperie

One of my favorites since the Internet began, they have a lot of interesting items including these vintage scissors which I’m going to find a way to justify soon.

Paper Source

A recent find, I love the way this site is laid out and really easy to navigate.  Adore the selection of labels and can’t wait to receive mine in “Gravel“.

Russell + Hazel

If I could afford to outfit all my shelves in R + H binders I would.  White patent please.

See Jane Work

The brainchild of entrepreneur Holly Bohn, this site is really the best if you only have time to shop one place.  They carry chic lines and have a great selection in stock.  I check their What’s New section frequently.

    I might have a secret obsession with office supplies. I think it started when I was a child and I loved buying new school stuff. Have you ever been to Kate’s Paperie in NYC? I think I almost passed out when I walked in.. soooo cool. LOL.

      Not so secret anymore! 😉 Yes, I think that’s when it started with me too. I still like new crayons, fresh pads of paper and brand new binders.

      I haven’t been there but now I MUST. When can you meet me there?!

    Hi,

    Each of the sites as something of desire but I was surprised to hear you loved the vintage scissors. I think I might be able to unearth the genuine article (minus the gold trim) around here if I look.

    Your grandmother once gave me a gift of “Gingher” scissors for sewing. I promised to only use them on fabric since cutting on paper dulls them. They “cut like butter” and are still cherished and kept in the original box.

    May I return the favor? Sexy scissors, not sure, but a gift for a daughter…absolutely, anytime!

      Hi Mom! Yes, I thought there were fun.

      I know the scissors of which you speak. I believe they are in the sewing basket at home?

      Of course! I will put them in a place of honor. And away from your grandchild of course.
