Valentine’s Day gets such a bad rap. But I like it. Sure, it’s fake, it’s cheesy but really, love is nothing if not a giant cliché! Plus winter needs as many little sunny spots as it can gather (I say that remembering how dreary winter can be in the Northern states). Who doesn’t need as much love as they can have in life? And who I ask doesn’t love red, pink and white?! Me for one!
In my mind I had thought about wearing this red dress (also worn here) over the top of the white shirt. Haven’t you seen a mannequin or two wearing something similar? On plastic perfection it looks cool and creative. It was really a no go for in real life. It looked like I was trying to be sexy with a strap-less dress but then got scared and added a shirt underneath. But I wanted to wearing the dress, so instead I wore it underneath!
Haven’t you seen those blurbs about going from work to date? Viola! I’m evening ready, all I have to do is take off the shirt! Unfortunately I don’t have exciting evening plans – it’s too crowded anyway – but I love how I get another red pencil skirt out of this dress!
