Don't postpone joy -- or Joye Marino, for that matter. Hair colorist extraordinaire and collector of "alley art," Marino has an amazing ability to wear baubles and scarves in new and surprising ways. Today, a striking Art Deco brooch from Oh Said Rose in Hampden transforms her simple ensemble of a white turtleneck sweater and wool pants. Marino's flair is why friend and Rodgers Forge neighbor Judy Foshee nominated Marino for Candid Closet: "The thing about Joye that drew me to her sense of style was that she will have on one distinctive piece, for instance, a brooch, or earrings, or a ring; and everything else is background to showcase that."
