How to succeed at work while only kinda trying.
|Reveal No Emotion|
No need to let on about your BF troubles or yo-yoing stock portfolio. Dab your eyes on the down-low with Design Glut’s Dow Jones hankie ($28).
|Keep It Together|
Paper cuts are a sign of weakness. Stay organized with a handy stapler ($25). Surprise: This vintage-inspired one is from The Container Store.
|Create an Illusion |
Why, yes, we have read all of Swann’s Way. Display smarty-pants tomes on Ana Linares’s ingenious Duo bookshelf ($160), which makes books look like they’re floating.
|Know What Day It Is|
Missed a meeting? Heaven forbid! This silk-screened calendar ($40) by Caitlin Mociun and Lena Corwin will keep you on track.
Flashy labels say, “I don’t need that raise after all.” This durable canvas bag by Makr ($160 at Smith + Butler) is chic, unassuming, and ideal for toting around a laptop.
For laptop sleeves for Luddites and cheeky book jackets, go to ShopTalk.
