Say what you will about Valentine's Day; it's commercialized, it's based on a massacre, why can't you show someone you love them everyday, yada, yada, yada. The redeeming qualities: chocolate (oh that's not enough!?), and a perfectly good reason to dress up and go somewhere. If you're anything like me, 2011 is a fresh year to save the most amount of money possible (I started walking to work and school thankyouverymuch!), a get out of jail free pass once in a blue moon is very welcome. Then there's the second dilemma - where do you start and what do you do?!
2. Easy peasy lemon squeezy! Check out Nally and Millie!
The brand has a collection perfect for any kind of fun you're up to partake in for Valentine's Day.
Look to the current trends appearing for Spring: ruffles, draping, pastel colors, medium length skirt (or even longer - knee length and a little bit longer is in right now).
If you're celebrating in a cold climate, remember that a pair of opaque tights do wonders for warmth and contrast. Black is great to lengthen legs and suck in problem areas, and work best with patterned and colorful getups. If your actual dress is black though, find a different color pair of tights, or a sheer black with a pattern.
