After the reign of slouch, jersey, studs and tough, it's nice to return to a more put-together closet.
Something previously missing from mine was the perfect blouse. Casual and chic, this Isabel Marant patterned tie-neck adds the right amount of cool sophistication when tucked into the skinny black pants already part of my regular rotation.
Whispy, pulled-back hair, a cat eye and patent heel complete the look for day.

I typically wear minimal (to zero) makeup, depending on my mood, but my heart always races for rich, provocative colors like Bobbi Brown's limited edition Black Maple lipstick. If I adorn myself with this daring hue, perfect for the chilled months ahead (and little else,) I'm good to go. Voila! a dramatic look with a single, simple maneuver - my kind of beauty routine.

I like my coffee table relatively clear save for a stack of magazines, a candle and my book of the moment (currently Jack Kerouac's Dharma Bums.) But when I saw these Rock of Ages Press matchbooks, I had to concede space to them. With phrases like "holy smoke" accompanied by an image of Guadalupe, or the likeness of Lakshmi next to wishes of "good karma", these matches add intention to the small task of lighting a flame.
It feels natural to bring the warmer scented candles out once summer has turned to fall... but what I love about Fresh's Sake candle is that it seems fitting year round. Bright and warm, it's both refreshing and relaxing.
I've been lighting this candle for years now - something I look forward to coming home to, now added to by the Joan of Arc "burn baby burn" matches. Slightly controversial? Eh, maybe. They're just matches.
