1. Style it “write”

    The Parker Jotter Even though we are in the age of the gadget, a lady needs a pen to sign her lunch cheque, the delivery slip from Rue La La, her AmEx charge, and for any number of sundry little items. And if she is a lady of style, she does not want to search around in her bag for any old piece of plastic that will scribble. Alas, pens have a way of disappearing. The solution is a stylish well-priced pen that doesn’t leak, but still looks good. Leave the fabulous fountain pens on your desk for thank you notes and billet-doux. That’s what I do.

     Parker’s Jotter Premium with its satin black, stainless steel chiseled finish looks and feels stylish for a reasonable price, just $22. You can get a gel refill if you prefer.
    Cross Classic Century Ballpoint PenI also like the Cross Classic Century Ballpoint Pen with 23 Karat gold-plated accents in matte black. This is a very slim and elegant pen for the price, $50.
