Fact #1: It's getting colder.
Fact #2: This means you'll be spending more time indoors.
When I think of spending time indoors for winter, I imagine a fire crackling, a big fur blanket wrapped around me, and a cup of some spiced cider in hand. Maybe there's a bearskin rug on the floor near the fire... But I live in an apartment in East Harlem, and it certainly doesn't have a fireplace, or a bearskin rug for that matter. I make due by filling my apartment with candles, lighting them seemingly earlier each day, as the sun sets earlier and earlier, and buying faux fur accents to toss around for added some added luxury.
This Lust List encompasses my love of candlelight, fuzzy things everywhere, and a cozy feeling even if a polar vortex is raging outside. The Lust items are a large format, super jumbo Diptyque Baies Candle in Noir that would pretty much break all the rules for how much one should reasonably spend on a single candle. It clocks in close to $300, but these other candles on the List (all of which I own andthereby can attest to their delicious smell) are luxe on a budget. Smaller formats, like the mini Baies candle, and mid-range brands offer lower prices. Going faux instead of vrais on the fur accessories, and subbing in less expensive textiles like mohair make getting fur crazy affordable. Check out the List above.
