Hello loves! Happy Valentine’s month! I absolutely adore Valentine’s day. I love love so much, I actually dot my i’s with hearts. I cry every time I watch Love Actually (there have been MANY of times). Old people holding hands melts me into a pile of mush. I like to partially blame my mother, for my super sentimental ways. My mom was born on Valentine’s day. If there was ever a gal worthy of such a romantic birthday, it’s my mom. She is seriously the best, most loving lady on the planet. She takes time every single day to care for others. She is also my editor of this blog:)
Onto Valentine’s day attire! I’m a firm believer, in a special occasion dress. I have been pining for a Self-Portrait dress, for a hot minute. My darling monkey of a husband treated me to my first. Self-Portrait is an emerging London-based brand, that specializes in unique designs. The style is feminine, with lots of lace, embroidery, and unique gorgeousness. The label has created quick red carpet buzz, with celebs including Reese Witherspoon and Kate Middleton rocking the name. A dress that makes you feel extra special, is well worth the splurge. Self-Portrait dress from Intermix. Heels by Tamara Mellon.
