    When you're dealing with Everest-like peaks of stress, we all know the first thing to fall by the wayside are your surroundings — most notably your desk. For some, this means lookbooks cluttering the floor, busted pens leaking ink on important docs, and a pile of scribbled-on Post-it notes that resemble a scene from A Beautiful Mind.

    That's exactly why we drafted Heather Lipner, a trend expert from intuitive e-commerce site Uncovet, to lend an haute helping hand to some of the town's chicest (and busiest) publishing-industry gals.
