Happy Valentine’s Day! With Fall Fashion Week going on it kind of snuck up on us here at Style Files. If you are running just a bit behind like us, perhaps you still need to find that perfect V-Day dinner dress or maybe you are the gift giver and need a few last minute ideas!
Here is our list of last minutes preparations that will ensure you have a romantic day.
Not sure what to get your fashionista Valentine? A V-Day colored handbag of course! Kate Spade has the trendiest bags of the season in ‘maraschino’ and ‘pink champaign’… Seriously, are those not the most appropriate color names for today? Whether your lady likes a an edgy bow or a classic ladylike look you really can’t go wrong with one of these beautiful bags.
Is your lady a beauty junkie? This one can be a toughie, but that is why we call ourselves experts. Poppy King’s Look of Love Set will guarantee a few extra smooches tonight. The trio comes with Oxymoron Honest Politician, which can be worn on both lips and cheeks, Saint Pinky Nude for lips, and Butterfly Ball Smitten a shimmer topcoat for the lips.
Tiffyany & Co. jewelry for Valentine’s can be cliché but it doesn’t have to be. Skip the hearts (though they are cute) and buy something she wouldn’t expect… When she is asked where she got that amazing bracelet she’ll shock her friends by saying Tiffany. I am a huge fan of this simple, but super chic Twist Bangle… of course they are more fun if they come in a stack (hint, hint).
Not sure what to wear to that fancy dinner tonight? I say, forget the red dress (which also means you won’t match half the restaurant) and instead opt for a sexy lace dress. This Tadashi Shoji vintage-inspired textured lace dress in black and nude strikes the perfect balance between feminine and sexy.
If you and your beau have decided on more casual Valentine’s Day festivities then I take back my last comment about forgetting red… Wear your heart on your sleeve, or I guess flowers on your sweater to show just how in love you are. This Ted Baker London Kathi sweater will look great with a dark pair of skinnies and flats or heels depending on the context of your date. Wear your hair in a topknot and add a pair of statement earrings to make the look casual but special.
All of these stores can be found at Scottsdale Fashion Square… Good luck!
