stationery wardrobe
 n.— «Ms. Kargman, the author of social satires like “The Ex-Mrs. Hedgefund,” out this spring, is not only conversant with the phrase “stationery wardrobe,” she has one of her own. It includes miniature raspberry-colored notecards with chocolate borders that say “Jill and Harry” (Harry is her husband), made by the Printery in Oyster Bay, N.Y., a century-old stationer from which she also orders white “empire”-size notecards with red borders and her initials; correspondence cards from Kate Spade printed with her first name; and pale gray sheets of writing paper with a white border from the Grosvenor Stationery Company in London.» —“The Lettered Set” by Penelope Green New York Times July 1, 2009.
