this one goes out to everyone who's at the office today


OUR working girl diaries


I was going to call this one “10 Things We’re Doing Other Than Talking about Disgraced Sports Heroes,” but Erica went and ruined that (see below). Then we argued over who got to include Daria wearing Marni on her list (again, see below). So, yes, dear reader, this may be the last “10 Things” you see from us for awhile. It’s tearing us apart, and we have a business to run. (But for those keeping track at home: Erica - 1, Claire - 1) —claire

Erica’s things:

+ Trying not to fall down the Manti Te’o rabbit hole—but getting sucked into this Chuck Klosterman/Malcolm Gladwell back-and-forth, which invokes Ali McGraw, Gary Glitter, and Icarus, anyway.

+ Falling for the idea of food-world collabs—specifically this ombré Intelligentsia x Le Creuset coffee set.

+ Marking my cal for the Chinese-American designers exhibit at the Museum of Chinese in America in NYC—featuring Derek Lam, Anna Sui, Phillip Lim, and Creatures of Comfort leading lady Jade Lai (who’s been featured on Of a Kind, heeeey).

+ Liking Lena Dunham more for the fact that she REALLY likes Taylor Swift.

+ Pulling the trigger on some way-cute, display-worthy Rifle Paper Co. cards for Galentine’s Day.

Claire’s things:

+ Loving these classic cartoon characters rocking ready-to-wear. Daria in Marni is everything.

+ Wishing one of my friends would move soon so I would have an excuse to buy one of these adorable Native Cast garden planter kits as a housewarming gift.

+ Getting a good, old-fashioned kick out of the 2013 Eustace Tilley Contest entries. So zeitgeisty.

+  Slathering my hands in Kiehl’s Ultimate Strength Hand Salve—my longtime winter standby and the only intense hand lotion I’ve found that doesn’t leave me greasy (or smelly for that matter).

+ Thinking that the Drift Relief Project is giving me a worthy reason to indulge my mounting temptation to spend hundreds of dollars on a beautifully painted stick (yes, that’s a thing now.)
