A Little Valentine’s Day Story for you...
I picked up this awesome vintage red velvet dress at a resale boutique called Retro Reload. All the women are really nice and helpful there. There's something timeless and magical about old things. When I saw this Jessica Rabbit mermaid dress; it said to me, "I love you, please take me home and wear me for Valentine's Day." LOL These shoes are very comfortable (got them on Zappos.com) and sometimes I wear them out dancing because they have straps,so they won't fall off. Have you ever heard of the Varga Store? That's where I purchased this gorgeous pearl and rhinestone purse. What I really love about this purse is that the rhinestones hang like fringe on the bottom and swing when you move it...it sparkles when it dances:) It's this charming boutique in the South Bay in Southern California that sells new pin up style clothing and accessories. The boutique is decorated so girly, you won't want to leave. It feels like the bedroom you always dreamed of...you'll have to go see for yourself. I found this bib style "princess necklace" at H&M and it was the last one they had for only $30.00 need I say more, had to have it.
“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times”…a fitting quote by Charles Dickens about Valentine’s Day. Ahhh… Valentine's Day..it can be so bittersweet. Why? Because some years you may have a sweetheart and sometimes you may have no one:( That being said, we can all have a good Valentine’s Day if we choose to make it fun and surround ourselves by people we “Love” being around. Of course, having a BIG box of chocolates and wine doesn’t hurt either :)
So, I'd like to hear what you did for Valentine's Day....What did you do?...Where did you go?..Most importantly...What did you wear?
