I haven't had a fashion post in a while, so I thought I'd do one about my Valentine's Day outfit. As you already know, I love getting dressed up. Considering how I was insanely sick all of last week, we ended up not being able to go on our planned Valentine's Weekend ski trip. It was a huge bummer, but I really needed the weekend to be able to get completely better. So, we re-scheduled our Valentine's Day dinner to fall on the actual day, and I was able to get decked out for the event! Yay!
On Valentine's Day, most people arm themselves with mounds of pinks and reds. But, surprisingly, I actually do not have even one red dress in my wardrobe! Black? Yes. Blue? Sure. Pepto bismol pink? Got it. But NO red. So, what's a girl to do? I decided to wear a beautiful white dress that was gifted to me by my mom about seven or eight months ago. I figured, when is the next time I'm going to pull this elegant little number out?
I paired the dress with a black belt, cute pink/purple leopard print pumps, and accessorized with sparkly jewelry, red nail polish, and some super red-hot lipstick to contribute to the Valentine's Day theme.
Now here's a secret: my hair is supposed to have a 'messy up- do' vibe to it. And it does, because I rolled out of bed yesterday morning and put my hair up into a messy bun just to get the day started. But when I looked in the mirror I decided that with a thin little headband and massive amounts of hairspray, it could actually look just right for the evening! (I even showered with my hair in the messy bun, trying my hardest to not get it wet. =D )
Valentine's day was really great and we had an amazing time! I know a lot of people dislike this holiday, but what's better than getting dressed up and spreading some love?!
Now for some pix....
Oh my, my! These shoes make my heart go pitter patter!
My bed-head 'do. :)
The full ensemble!
So, how was your Valentine's Day?
Did you do anything special?
