Style Advice for Valentine’s Day

Love it or hate it, Valentine’s Day is coming! With the holiday looming and only 9 days away now, I feel that it’s time to make dressing for this occasion a priority. Especially if any of you all shop online- and who doesn’t?! Shopping right now will give you adequate time for shipping before the big day.

Before we start, I want to address those of you who may be dreading the holiday with disdain. My advice? Stop. Like everything else in this world, the perception of the event is all in how you look at it. Don’t be that crazy love-hating spinster or become anti-Hallmark for a month. Instead, let’s focus on the positive: delicious candy, chocolate readily available, and yet another excuse to dress your best. Plus, who said you need a significant other to enjoy the day? I’ve spent many-a-V’day neck-deep in bubble bath sipping champagne. Feel free to love yourself. In fact, I encourage it.

So whatever your plans may be, I’ll give you a run-down of a few things you may need.
