Date Night

When I get bored and want to decide what I should wear for certain events or nights out, I get on ShopStyle and spend hours putting together different outfits.  Since most of you will be on dates for Valentine's, I decided to throw together a few outfit options:

Cross My Heart
Cross My Heart
Jessica Simpson, Le Mystere, Topshop, Rachel Roy
The white dress fits and hugs perfectly, while allowing the red earrings to pop. Put a lacy pair on underneath for later...

I don't like super girl-y frocks.  I mean, I love a good dress, but I'd rather pair it with a blazer and some spiky heels, rather than a sweater and a pair of dainty platforms.  (Alas, I am trying to give myself a more retro, delicate look... it's going to take time.)  Anyway, I adore black with white because the white will pop and the black frames.  I added the heart earrings to be festive :) I threw the panties in for fun because it always makes people like me (at least) feel a tad more flirty when I have on some lacy underwear.  TMI.   And it's safe to say I'm obsessed with Jessica Simpson heels.  She makes a good pair of shoes!

Pick Me Up
Pick Me Up
Alvina, BCBG MAX AZRIA, JS by Jessica, Shape Fx
Pairing a bright satin mini dress with a pair of booties or pumps accentuates legs of any size; bring a shoulder-padded blazer to...

ADORE THIS DRESS and purse.  My mom sent me a box of her old purses that used to be my grandma's and I get more compliments on them than anything else I own!  So vintage.  Anyway, purples, pinks and reds are always in season for Valentine's, and this dress by BCBG drapes well but also shows off some leg.  I'd recommend if you show leg that you don't go overboard with cleavage, and vice versa.  You're not trying to pimp yourself out.  The blazer has the puffy shoulder pads (love) and the ring is my absolute fave -- incorporates hearts and skulls.  I prefer the booties to the open-toe heels, and the lingerie for underneath is different in that it provides cap sleeves, so you won't have to worry about your straps falling off!

For the Girls
Valentine's Casual
Fred Flare, Lejaby, Lauren Moshi, Wildfox Couture
Perfectly festive for a cozy dinner at home or girls night in.

Some of us may be spending the night with the best people of all -- our friends.  Or maybe you and the BF are laying low with a homemade dinner and a bunch of rom-coms.  Get festive with some of these comfy heart-inspired tees!  I own the Lauren Moshi "Love is a Battlefield" top and it's totally soft and flattering.  The Juicy Courture Ruffle top dresses things up a bit, and my favs have to be the Wildfox Heart tee (as seen on Taylor Swift) and the e.Vil jersey studded heart v-neck.  The lingerie is just for fun (or can be great if you're doing an exchange of sorts for a party) and the ring is actually candy!
