Taking it to the Wedge of Reason: Matisse –Jessica

Ciao, a tutti!

She Walks in Beauty*
She walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that's best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes:
Thus mellow'd to that tender light
Which heaven to gaudy day denies.


One shade the more, one ray the less,
Had half impaired the nameless grace
Which waves in every raven tress,
Or softly lightens o'er her face;
Where thoughts serenely sweet express
How pure, how dear their dwelling-place.

 And on that cheek, and o'er that brow,
So soft, so calm, yet eloquent,
The smiles that win, the tints that glow,
But tell of days in goodness spent,
A mind at peace with all below,
A heart whose love is innocent!


Note Bene:
Do you remember when I told you my personal mantra when buying shoes? Buy the shoes and the outfit will come (My Shoe Mantra). Well, here is a perfect example. I bought these shoes because I loved the roped wrapped wooden wedge and of course, the stud detailing on the vamp. When I bought the dress I loved the tribal design…I had no idea the studded detailing on the empire waist would have matched it so beautifully…and both in that beautiful chocolate brown with brass studs…bonus!
