Planning anything special for St Valentine’s Day? I hope so. I love this romantic holiday when people fall in love, make sweet confessions and give each other little gifts. I’ve always felt that Valentine’s day is a bit like a fairy-tale…
And so let me start with an outfit. No, this is NOT a look for your special day – this is yet to come. The clothes and accessories below are meant to get you noticed by somebody who may become THE ONE – you don’t want to tempt your fate and let it pass by you just because you didn’t fancy dressing up or went for a little black dress.
The Fashioned by Love rule #1: men like COLOUR and do have a natural ability to appreciate a girl who can wear it well.
I also believe that men notice a girl who looks beautiful, sexy (without going over board), chic and confident, and think this outfit will certainly make you stand out from the crowd – a bit of fuchsia, a bit of gold sparkle, classic trench that looks as velvety as the night when you step step outside.
It’s a party and you are a Princess. You look and feel fabulous. After some carefully planned meandering you meet him. Then you spend a couple of hours talking, laughing and flirting and feel a bit of “soul mate” vibe going on.
The party is over and it’s time to go. You step outside, into the darkness. He follows you, a true gentleman. He touches your shoulder, inhales your perfume, a delicate mix of fresh rose, magnolia and vanilla mixed with the cold night air, you turn around, he notices how a slightest move of your earrings creates a fireworks of tiny sparkles that land on your cheek like golden dust and… doesn’t want to let you go. Ever… because from now and on you are his princess.
