What To Wear: Valentine’s Day

Camilla and Marc Adaptation Dress – $509.06

Happy month of love y’all! The big day is just around the corner and whether or not you’re expecting something or just letting yourself go and enjoying the moment, Valentine’s Day is a day where you should feel good about the way you look and for your significant other or whatever they call them these days. Typically, I prefer the red family – pink, coral, light red, etc. only because I don’t LOVE the color red. However, we’re gonna diverge a bit. Here are some of my favorite picks so if you don’t have anything special to wear yet, I guess you had better get on it…

What We’d Wear To Ring In The New Year 2012

With the holiday parties coming in before New Year’s Eve, we often times forget about what we’re going to wear to the big event. Well, we either forget or it turns out to be a last minute buy and for an event this big, it deserves our attention doesn’t it. Who am I kidding? Even this post is a little bit late because you’re going to be a little bit scrapped for time purchasing a dress now – but hey – I’m here for you. And I’m a hypocrite because I bought my New Year’s Eve dress last Sunday.

I’m sorry.

Let’s get started – we can’t waste anymore time.

What’s In A New Year’s Eve Dress?

When it comes to dresses, I am very particular. On my way to becoming what I like to call a “dress collector,” I believe in the importance of having the perfect dress for every occasion. New Year’s Eve has proven to be a challenge. I’ve never really had a FANTASTIC New Year’s. Sorry to the people I’ve spent it with in the past… you were all great company, but it wasn’t the event I thought it would be. Two years ago I was just sick and fell asleep on my couch before midnight. Last year, I roamed all over Capitol Hill in what I thought would be an appropriate New Year’s Eve dress. It was just a holiday dress.

So what MAKES a New Year’s Eve dress? Does it have to be sparkling? Sequins? Glitter? That’s never really been my style. I suppose that’s why I’m having a tricky time finding the right dress because I’ve always hated those dresses.

At first I thought I wanted a cutout. If only those didn’t go out of style two years ago…

Then I thought I wanted something flow-y and loose. Will that work in San Francisco?

Maybe I should try on a tight fitted body-con. There are way too many of those in the world.

I’ve been eyeing this lbd from LuLu’s all week. It is none of the above, but it’s much more me. I like the bubble detail, the weird faux looking lace that isn’t lace at the top and the cream belt that doesn’t come with the dress. That’s okay – I can find something for that.

Have any of you run into problems this year with finding the perfect dress to ring in the new year?
