Gearing Up for Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day is just around the corner! Jen and I picked 4 outfits each for 4 scenarios we think you may encounter once the time comes.

  • Cute Brunch Date
  • Evening Outing
  • Single Mixer
  • Girls Night Out

We also have a special guest picked 4 outfits for guys. We will post them on our next blog. So stayed tuned!


Cute Brunch Date
For some mysterious reason going to a brunch is always cuter than going  to any other meal, doesn't matter it is a mini date or a happy friends get-together.

"Hope the deep sea blue and valentine red brightens your mood to start the day. Some cute accessories like the red flower hair piece adds some extra spice for the special day!"

Dress: tea and tulips boutique - one of a kind vintage. — a new year in love...
Coat: Unisex Wool Peacoat
Tights: American Apparel Crescent Pattern Fishnet
Shoes: Betsy Johnson Serenn Suede Booties With Scallop Ankle
Clutch: Hobo
Hairpin: Etsy 

"I enjoyed picking this set the most and loved the modern victorian look. My favorite thing about having a neutral outfit is adding color pop pieces such as the bright orange bag. The dress is pretty irresistible however, a chiffon skirt and blouse would also work with these accessories."

Hot Date
You've got a hot date taking you out for on a lovely evening. It is time to play dress up!

"The strapless skater dress will make you look sexy and sweet. It shows off your sexy collar bones with a sweetheart neckline. Match that with some sparkles from Swarovski. The tulip coat keeps you warm and follows the dress shape. The perfect length of the coat lets you show off your long legs too! Oh and to jazz things up a bit, a fun sparkle manicure always helps!"

Xiang's Hot Date Set

Dress: Asos Strapless Skater Dress With Sweetheart Neckline
Coat: Miu Miu Coat
Bag: BCBG Jenna Ruffled Minaudiere
Bangle: Swarovski Edith Bangle
Necklace: Swarovski Alana Clear Crystal Pendant
Earrings: Swarovski Alana Light Rose Pierced Earrings

Here is a nice tutorial on how to do a sparkle manicure.

"Let's face it, if you're going on a date with a guy, most likely all he will care about is how hot you look in a dress. I tried to pick a dress that would be flattering to all shapes and sizes but this dress carries the bonus of walking and flowing romantically as well. It also features a sexy back for a lovely surprise. A cropped jacket with this dress will make sure that the skirt gets the freedom it needs to move beautifully."

All That Glitter and Gold

Dress: Say You Will Dress
Coat: ALICE BY TEMPERLEY Libre Cropped Leather Jacket
Shoes: Gold Tara High Heel Shoes
Bag: Anya Hindmarch Valorie Glitter Clutch
Necklace: BCBG Stone Floral Necklace
Earrings: Kate Spade Petit Rouge Clip Earrings

Singles Mixer
No need to stay in on the special occasion even if you have not found your perfect one yet. Go to a fun single mixer, meet new people, enjoy the night, and maybe someone will get lucky!

"A casual pink/peachy dress is not too dressy but still cute and flirty. Pairing it with other bright color accessories makes you impossible to miss. Layer with wither a white coat or a white sweater to keep you warm on a cold February night and stick with a light color pallet."

Xiang's Single Mixer Set

"This sexy red dress will surely turn heads and the gold decal makes it extravagant enough to act in place of jewelry. Two of my favorite trends right now is the quilted hand bag and the trench coat so it made me happy that both happened to go very well with this outfit!"

"Asymmetrical silver sequin one-piece with the laic-back yet glamourous chain-and-feather headband definitely makes you stand out in a club! Show off your legs with back seam tights and patterned leather wedge booties. Add a bit color with a red clutch and gold manicure to become that cool and hot chick everyone is jealous of!"

And this outfit would be really complete with gold metallic manicure!

"What I love about this outfit is that nothing is hotter and more girly than hot pink however, the leather and the skulls give this outfit a bit of edge and let's everyone know that you're no ordinary sweet girl. You can also class up this look for a hot date with a blazer and a pair of nice pumps."
