Valentine’s Day: the holiday most people hate

Most people I know absolutely detest Valentine’s Day. Whether it’s the ridiculous excuse to demand another gift from your SO or the fact that you seem to be uncannily S-O-less every time Valentine’s Day rolls around, this holiday ranks right up there with a root canal or digging sharpened pencils into your palms.

BUT, why not love the colors of love?

Red, fuchsia, pink, merlot…. there are so many gorgeous shades of Valentine-worthy dresses out there to choose from.

Wear them with your Valentine. Wear them to find a Valentine. Or wear them to swear off any more Valentines with your best gal pals instead.

But don’t skip an opportunity to show off your bad self in one of these AB FAB colors for a night!

Daily Covet: Valentino Red for Valentine’s Day

Got big plans tonight?

While I am spending the evening making a nice dinner topped off with Red Velvet cupcakes for my three best boys, I do kind of wish I had elegant and romantic dinner plans with the tallest of the lot.

And if I did have elegant and romantic dinner plans, I’d want this elegant and romantic lace-drenched frock from Valentino Red.

Valentino’s signature color “red” reeks of glamour and passion all rolled into one, and his Red Collection isn’t far behind.  And the cost of this “less is more” little black dress won’t leave you reeling… that much.

Maybe somone else could put something like this to good use…

Daily Covet: Be Mine Skirt

Now that we’ve discussed what goes underneath, how about something fun that you can show off in public?

This cute J.Crew pleated heart throb skirt is just the thing.  I love how they tone it down with classic cashmere in a solid black.  But you could really pump it up with red or pink too!

Kitten heels or knee high boots are also possible, as is a red or hot pink scarf.

Advertise Valentine’s Day all day long in this versatile item, and why not all year too?
