The stationery of dreams

Hands up who else is obsessed with stationery? There’s something about writing on a brand new notepad or using bright post-its that is so satisfying to our inner geeks (don’t judge us).

And Prada has just made all our workspace dreams come true thanks to this shiny silver paper clip. Ok, so it’s actually a money clip shaped like a paper clip, but we’ll have it anyway.

Just look at it, it’s all shiny and new, and has that classic Prada logo stamped discreetly on the side. You just know your desk buddy will be jealous.

Sure, some have said it’s a tad pricey, which we get, however we’d argue it’s a lot better quality than your average Paperchase purchase, and much prettier too.

Should you wish to elevate your stationery cupboard, or carry your cash in style, then you can get this from Barneys online for $185 (plus shipping cost).

Penny Goldstone is the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire, covering everything from catwalk trends to royal fashion and the latest high street and Instagram must-haves.

Penny grew up in France and studied languages and law at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris before moving to the UK for her MA in multimedia journalism at Bournemouth University. She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).

Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at MoneySavingExpert.com, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.

However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.

Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
