winter whites fit for a new year's fete

Winter whites + a dose of sparkle is the best recipe for that desirable balance of playful sophistication that holiday fetes call for. What better way to welcome the new year! I especially adore this A-line embellished dress / sparkly clutch / kate spade keds / erickson beamon earrings / luxeffects nail polish / mini lomography camera / lulu frost bracelet (on sale!) / sofia champagne 


farewell, 2012

A note: I feel blessed to work with such smart creative people, and feature those whom I have admired immensely in matchbook. What started out as an idea between friends has seen tremendous growth in 2012 and everyday your enthusiasm and support keeps it going. Thank you. I'm SO looking forward to sharing more exciting projects (including my own little apartment I have been hard at work on!) with you in 2013, and see what the year holds in store! I have a good feeling about it... xx

PPS. A little interview I did on Camille Styles for the holidays if you'd like to read more from me ;)

drink of choice


A champagne cocktail is my go-to – it's easily made and just right for any occasion. Here's to a wonderful New Year. Cheers!


new year, new...

Once December rolls around, I jump at the chance to spruce things up for the new year. From the essential buy of a new planner, to an update in personal stationery (adore these!), December is a crucial time to invest in a few key items for you and your closet :)
