Love is in the air, but does that mean we need to run out and buy a new outfit? Valentine’s Day is all about bringing out the sexy, but who said sexy wasn’t already sitting in your closet, waiting to be discovered? For me, it appeared in a form of a flirty little black dress with a cutout heart feature on the back. Because wearing red on Valentine’s Day is soooooo overrated, I thought it would be fun to create a look by using a mix of other colors, however, sexy red lips on V-Day are a must.
Any occasion is a perfect excuse to get dolled up, and weather your plans involve dining out at a fancy restaurant, heading to the opera, meeting with your girlfriends, or having a movie date with your couch, I’m sure my outfit is versatile enough to cover any romantic evening my boo has planned for us. This LBD on it’s own has a bit of the wholesome cheerleader feel to it, but once I’ve added these super funky Jessica Simpson fishnet ‘fashion tights’, here, and topped (or bottomed) them with sky-high, flirty, jewel encrusted Betsey Johnson’s peep-toes, my dress had taken on a whole new sexy vibe, while still leaving something to the imagination.
To me, accessories help show off your personality in ways that clothing just can’t. I’ve always liked the contradiction between black and diamonds, and while most of my icing came from Lux, my diamond encrusted watch is by Fossil, here, and, of course, my beautiful heart shaped, long chained locket is by Origami Owl. Some of you might know of my love affair with this brand, and I can’t say enough about their beautiful, quality lockets and charms. I’ve already put in my order for this Valentine’s Day, and if you’d like to check ‘em out (or give the man in your life a hint), here’s a link: Origami Owl.
Every time I open a certain closet door, I’ve got to be ready to catch a few purses that come leaping my way … you could say I might have a slight addiction, but I’m not admitting to anything. One of the things I’ve dodged the other day was a travel retro print, double sided makeup bag, and because of it’s theme, I thought it would act as a great V-Day handbag.
Though I’m not nearly as crafty as my fabulous co-blogger Natasha, I do occasionally dab in super simple diys, and my Valentine’s hair clips are just that. Upon a visit to a local craft store, I’ve come across a small pouch of foam stickers. Though they are not meant to be used in hair, I thought they would tie in perfectly with my red lips and retro bag. What could be easier than ‘peel and stick’? You can quickly decorate your shoes, bags, jewelry or even your eye glasses with these easy to use foam hearts.
You may already have chosen that extra sexy Valentine’s lingerie, but chances are you’ll want to wear something over it. This Valentine’s Day I dare you to recycle something you already own and make it sizzle. Don’t have a dress with a heart cut-out?
