being a romantic
I love romantic things. Romantic movies capture my heart, romantic gestures make me swoon, and romantic dresses absolutely steal my soul. With that said, you can imagine how much I love Valentine's Day. I realize that this day is hated among many, but it is and always has been one of my favorite holidays. What's not to love about getting decked out in red and pink and giving candy and sweet little notes to everyone you know? Honestly, I think we should have Valentine's Day more often.
Though I get very excited about all the chocolate, getting dressed up for Valentine's Day is by far my favorite part of the day (besides spending time with my Valentine of course!) Normally I just use it as an excuse to wear a lot of red, but this year I decided to keep it a bit more subtle. I found this beautiful black 50's dress from Street Scene, and I am obsessed. I think I've tried it on almost every single day since I purchased it, and I am not ashamed in the least. I plan on pairing it with my leopard Anthropologie kitten heels (with which I am also obsessed) and a beautiful shade of matte red lipstick. And obviously some Lily Allen, because a little sass is always needed, even on the sweetest of days.
