play dress up.

what does your valentine’s day look like this year?

mine will be spent at the Fairmont Lake Louise with a room overlooking the iconic lake and mountains. sounds pretty romantic, right? it will only be made better by the three girlfriends i’m sharing it with, and the champagne we will be drinking while in our sweat pants.

i’ve never had a date for valentine’s day. never done the three course dinner, flowers, candy, cards and hearts thing. not sure i want to; not sure i don’t.

what i am sure of is if i had a valentine’s date this year, this is what i’d be wearing:


pleat sleeve dress, bcbgeneration
i’m a little-black-dress kind of girl and this beautifully blocked dress has confidence. it’s sexy without being slutty. the low back and sheer panels are balanced with high neck and delicately pleated sleeves.

bestie bobbi set,
to me, an outfit is never complete without a touch of whimsy. sexy will only go so far if you have no personality. these heart bobbi pins add a little love reminder, but aren’t tacky.

morfologi rose gold wavemaker, joseph nogucci
delicate and beautifully intricate, this wavemaker bracelet was designed to celebrate the strength and power of the modern woman. the rose gold is said to express inner passions and remind you of the fire that exists within you. if that doesn’t scream steamy valentine’s, i don’t know what does.

jubalen pump, marc fisher
i’m usually one for a dramatic shoe, but when your hosiery is calling the shots of the outfit, you don’t want a shoe that interferes. this simple and inexpensive pump compliments the line of the stockings and will help elongate the leg; just make sure they are a very similar shade of beige.

palomina tight, wolford
sexy, sexy. these tights make me drool, and they’ll have the same effect on your date. it’s an exciting combination: sheer tights with an elegant front seam topped by a worked-in ribbon of narrow stripes at stay-up height. the dotted panty part is another thrilling surprise just waiting to be discovered.

russian red, mac
i’d wear a red lip to bed with sweat pants – actually, i have. my poor pillow. – there is always, always, a need for a bold lip.

what will you be wearing on friday?
