If you’re like us, you’ve probably wondered what famous people add to their carts. Not the JAR brooch and Louis XV chair but the hair spray and the electric toothbrush. We asked Maggie Holladay — the founder of vintage home-décor retailer and interior-design studio Claude Home — about the pens, wine, and white T-shirt she can’t live without.
I have a weird infatuation with really, really thin pens. These are the absolute best. They come in multiple colors and have this smooth, slick feeling that makes me want to write and work harder. When I first bought them, I didn’t think much of it. But when one of the pens went missing, I started freaking out. I was like, “I can’t work because I don’t have my pen.” Now I always have one on me.
The best-fitting T-shirts. My go-to uniform is this white tee with black Levi’s. If I’m trying to be fancy, I’ll wear a blazer or a trench coat, too. I walk to Kmart and get packs of them. And when all of the tees inevitably get stained, I can just get a new pack because they’re so affordable.
When I first got it, I did one side of my face for 20 minutes and it was a solid inch higher than the other side. You really do see a difference after you use it. It’s instant gratification and just a really fun thing to do. I’m addicted. I’ll get really into it and do it three times a day for like a week.
