Rather than waiting for our significant others to present us with the perfect token of their idea of affection on this upcoming holiday of love, we thought we’d make a  wishlist here to offer up some suggestions.



Cashmere Short Robe

This sultry red robe is the epitome of lounging in style. It’s cut right at the knee, is 100% cashmere, features and self-tie belt and above all, is luxurious as it is comfortable. Whether you’re working from home on a snowy morning or unwinding with a cup of tea after a long day, this is the kind of robe that ushers in serenity and warmth.






Leather iPad Case

Let’s be honest, carrying around an iPad these days is like carrying a phone–it’s essential. Fashionable as it is functional, this leather iPad case from CaseCrown has a simple and classy design and offers great protection for your cherished iPad. The cover flips back to transform into a hands-free viewing stand. Best of all, it’s compact–so you can slip it into your handbag without the worry of carrying a bulky case.




Tom Ford bag3.

Tom Ford Natalia Bag

The Tom Ford bags have remained a bit under the radar (perhaps due to price points) but for wishlist appeal, this uber chic patent Natalia bag can’t be beat. The medium size is big enough to hold the essentials but still not too large to take to dinner. With a removable or convertible strap, it can go from shoulder bag to tailored hand bag to clutch in a nano second. And of course the signature hardware gives it its glam elan.




Opera Shawl4.

Taigan Opera Shawl

Accessories are always the easiest way to add a little dash to your wardrobe. So even if you wanted to wear your little black dress out for a romantic Valentine’s Day dinner, this smocked and ruffled Opera Shawl will add a little spice and warmth to the evening.

For those of you who have been diligent about shaping up after the holidays, you might just deserve a little reward. This stretch red leather skirt will show off your hard work in style. And because it’s so lightweight, it can take you right into the warmer weather that we can all hope is coming soon!

    I own that red robe and it makes one feel simply wonderful, Darling, wonderful. Thank you for reminding me again of a great idea.

    I love that WVFC is keeping the fashion bar HIGH! I for one love clothes and so enjoy reading Vogue and Bazaar and watching the runway (Alexander Wang’s parting collection was a gift). I full well know that I will more than likely not be purchasing at an elevated price point across the table, but a great ‘piece’ or two can refresh an entire wardrobe; certainly if you know how to work the high/low of style and design.

    As for Valentine’s Day-I think it’s a lovely holiday, and I am at present single. We are all so busy and over scheduled, a day that celebrates finding the one or a one for the moment is a good thing in my book.

    Well done on the red pieces picked-That Tom Ford bag is fabulous.

    Happy Valentines Day!

    I love the images that were chosen to celebrate Valentine Day reds. The writers who contribute to Fashion Friday have made our site a more vital and interesting one and their posts have greatly increased our traffic since many of us look forward to some fun at the end of our long work week.

    I am sympathetic to the comments made by the women who wrote about their individual responses to this holiday since many people are unsettled by the Valentine’s Day focus on frivolity and sensuality. We are all aware of cost these days and most shoppers use the ideas and images in Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar, along with the fashion columns in the New York Times to freshen up their wardrobe with a new piece that fits their budget, informed by the originals created by the designers who change how we think about clothes and how we may choose to look.

    However, I beg to differ about Valentine’s Day. It is not a little holiday, not to me and not to millions of others. It is a break in the winter doldrums that allows us to think about flirting and fun. And red is the color of S E X.

    I know that I will wear red all week and look forward to buying myself a small present. It won’t be chocolate because it is unhealthy and it won’t be roses because I know that the roses are flown in by airplanes that pollute our environment with carbon emissions and then die within days.

    I send my gratitude to the writers who contribute their time and talent to this site for free. I know that we have wonderful pieces to come: Dressing for Valentine’s Day, Fashion Show Trends, Winter Weather Chic…I can’t wait.

    Holy Smokes! what prices. I would like to know what Sylvia/Nicole would have to say. The handbag alone would fund several deserving charities IMHO.

    I agree with Suzanne. Too upscale for me. How about some nice red roses?

  • Suzanne MacAaron February 8, 2013 at 10:33 am

    Rather upscale for such a little holiday. I think a sweet card is enough—-maybe a little chocolate or a rose to accompany it.
