Valentine's Day Outfit Ideas

Alright ladies.  While your man (aka husband, boyfriend, significant other, friend, etc.) worries about where to take you out for a night on the town for Valentine's Day ORRRR if you're single you and your girlfriends are planning a glamourous night out on the town what you need to focus on is the big question: "What do I wear?!" Although many of us can agree that Valentine's Day is just a consumer holiday it is a great excuse to get all dressed up and go out! It also adds to the fun of telling your friends the juicy details of what you did, wore, and where you went!  So for this occasion I have put together a couple of Valentine's Day outfit ideas.


I absolutely love lace as it adds texture and sexyness to a dress.  I adore this red, Lace Loren Dress from Madewell (retails for $172.00, on sale $51.60 from Shopbop). It has a hidden zip closure on the side and also a slip dress lining. I actually ordered it for myself from but as word of caution, this dress runs big so I ordered two sizes down.  Also, as an added bonus, you can pair it with tights and booties if it’s cold out.

If you prefer a dress that hugs you in all the right places, you could opt for this red, Off the Shoulder Bandage Dress made by T by Tadashi (retails for $138 from Nordstrom). It also has a zipper closure which runs along the back.  A great thing about this dress is that you can also wear during the spring and summertime since it has short sleeves.

If you’re not a fan of dresses, you can opt for a blouse and leggings or dark colored jeans. This Cutout Studded A-Line Blouse from Forever 21 (retails $22.80) is sophisticated with gold color studded buttons. You can pair these with fierce leggings from BCBGMaxazria called Stephen Moto Leggings (retails $138).  Since the top is plain I would rock a gold cuff and with heels to pull the look together.

Bringing in the New Year

What a better way to start off the new year than with the launch of my new blog and a piece on New Year's Eve looks?  

Before the ball drops to bring in the new year we get one last fashion look of the year.  New Year's Eve is all about the glam, unlike other holiday's during the year.  This celebration calls for glitter, sequins, and metallics!

For a glam night out on the town I would go opt for a sparkly or sequin dress.  For some reason I always gravitate towards black clothing, maybe because it's sliming, and I am in love with this black Morris sequined cocktail dress from BCBGMAXAZRIA ($448).  For a more affordable dress, the Paillette Bodycon Dress from Forever 21 is a great option ($34.80).

For a dinner date or a night in with friends or family I would opt for a sweater dress paired with black tights and a pair of booties.  For new years I decided to rock the Keeley Zigzag Jacquard sweater dress from BCBGMAXAZRIA ($268).  As the dress was not sparkly or filled with sequins I paired this with big glamorous curls, a smokey eye, and nude lips.  I personally love sweater dresses as they are extremely comfortable but yet very stylish if paired with the right accessories.
