Some Valentine's Inspiration

With Valentine's Day coming up in a couple of weeks, I thought it might be a good time to share some images that will be inspiring my Valentine's look this year. It may seem cliché to go with pink or red, but they really are a pretty palette. And you know how I feel about red :)!

If you're looking for how to spice up a more simple dress, look at some of the images of tights I found; there are some really interesting designs out there that will instantly make your look cuter or sexier..depending on what you're going for. My personal favourite are the vintage style hosiery with the black seam up the back of the leg. If you're going for a cute look, ModCloth as a pair of adorable heart tights...but they are currently out of stock, unfortunately. Hopefully they will be getting more in soon! You can find them here.

Sheer or lace fabrics are an excellent choice, and you can dress them up or down to make it subtle or sexier. Add a little red lipstick and winged liner to give the look a more retro-glamorous appeal.

If you're still trying to find the perfect dress, there are quite a few beautiful red dresses I would consider on ModCloth's site. I would have bought the Lady Love Song dress, but I already found a beauty at my local thrift store awhile back for a steal.

Hope this inspiration gets you started on your own styling!
