Valentine’s Day might be over, but I believe that celebrating romance is not just for February. Showing love and accepting love are all-year-round endeavors. Every couple has a different approach. If you celebrate romance over a cozy dinner, it is most alluring to dress a bit demurely, but all-out feminine. Think “Charlotte” of Sex & the City, if you will. This ensemble I’ve put together at Polyvore.com mixes textures—leather and suede, silk and cotton brocade. I love the idea of wafting in a somewhat vintage perfume like Arpège
. The red lace bra is the hint that later, the revels will continue. Happy Valentine’s Day, everyday!
Here are some highlights below. You can view the full ensemble at Polyvore.com.
