[High/Low] Kathryn M. Ireland's Picks

There is this phenomenon that happens when I am either shopping or drunk: I turn into a millionaire.  

I am oblivious to how much things cost.  A $70 cab ride from New Jersey to Brooklyn?  WORTH IT.  A $15,000 gingham shirt from J. Crew? Wrap it up!  It will look great with my boat shoes!

This is obviously stupid, considering I work in media and my paycheck typically amounts to a pile of thumbtacks and candy bar wrappers. 

Kathryn M. Ireland, one of Elle Decor's Top 25 Decorators for 2011, and a castmember on Bravo's upcoming new reality show, Million Dollar Decorators, has taught me an important lesson. 

Shop the fuck around.  

You can get great stuff that only looks expensive, without making your bank account cry.

[GIFTED] Loyal Loot's Log Bowls

I'm not positive, but I'm pretty sure most hippies would rather skip things like "utensils" in favor of just eating with their hands while standing near whatever bush they picked fruit out of. 

These bowls from the Loyal Loot Collective are made out of old tree stumps and close the gap between living like a hunter-gatherer and living like a real person.

My 5 Best Gifts: Clay Kramer from Interior Gurus

Let's face it: giving the perfect gift to someone is like standing on top of a mountain and shouting, "HEY EVERYONE, I'M NOT AN EMOTIONAL CRIPPLE!" 

My 5 Best Gifts is a recurring feature that asks people to give up the goods on the best gifts they've given or received.

[GIFTED] iStuck iPhone Holder

The other day, I saw a commercial for an iPhone for $49, which frankly, made me want to jump out the nearest open window. 

Since the value of tiny pocket computers has gone down so significantly that I no longer fear using them on the A train, this iStuck iPhone holder ($12, Fred Flare) is more than appropriate.  Let's pretend to stick old gum on an expensive, advanced piece of technology.

[GIFTED] F Bomb Paperweight

Everyone knows that one person that doesn't hold back.  They don't drop F bombs, they drop truth bombs, and they never let you forget it.

A baptism, a funeral, a doctor's office, a playground: nothing's gonna stop their fucking game.   

Personally, I am a big proponent of the work "fuck," mainly because I don't know any other way to simultaneously convey my anger and enthusiasm (ie: "This fucking blows!" and "This is fucking awesome!").

Pick up this F Bomb paperweight ($50, Uncommon Goods) for the trashy, foul-mouthed jerk in your life.

They'll fucking love it.
