I love me an LBD…and a great Giveaway! With Valentine’s Day just days away I decided to share a little ‘Date Night’ style with you all and guess what…I may actually a date for the special day (it may or may not be my adorable dog Charlie…guess you will all have to stay tuned to find out!) Anyway…in addition to sharing a fun and flirty look I am sharing a new Giveaway sponsored by Sparkle Republic Jewelry! Want to WIN a pair of statement earrings? Well continue reading to find out how you could get ‘lucky’ 😉 I am a firm believer that you could never go wrong with a chic LBD (little black dress) when it comes to a date night or any holiday. I’ve worn them for New Year’s, Christmas, parties and more. This sweetheart fit and flare dress is honestly my favorite because it fits me perfectly. To add a little extra something I opted to wear my pink shaggy coat (which is available on my Poshmark here) that keeps me super warm all night long!
Naturally in the spirit of Valentine’s Day, my shoes and bag had to be…you guessed it…pink (only suiting right)! My clutch is from GiGi NY (who would have guessed they are based right around the block from where I live!) + my shoes are Michael Kors (no longer available) I found two similar options here + here.
Want to win the earrings I am wearing? Well it’s your lucky day (or rather week) you have one week to enter to win these statement earrings from Sparkle Republic Jewelry below! Good Luck <3 PS if you missed out on my other Valentine’s Day Outfits + Gift Guides ::
With every negative comes a positive…so with the crazy snow storm NY is having comes a perfectly white backdrop that looks like something out of a movie…When I started editing photos for this post I was kinda in awe…me freezing my a** off was totally worth the beautiful outcome…I present to you a little Valentine’s Dayoutfit inspo part one!
I had to start thinking of something a little exciting in order to distract myself from this Snow Storm Juno…right now it’s 9:15 pm on 1.26 and the wind is howling, there is already a foot of snow on Long Island and I am stuck in my house till who knows when (I am simply praying it doesn’t mess up my flight to Disney on Friday). So while I am not going on a hot date for Valentine’s Day (unless cuddling with my pup Charlie qualifies as a hot date or if one of my Tinder dates becomes a success story)…that doesn’t mean I can’t feel all ‘lovey dovey‘ in a cute, festive outfit right?!
So let me break down the Valentine’s Day look: Obviously a red blouse is essential when you think ‘Valentine‘ so I found this cute top at Nordstrom Rack (similar blouses here + here). I paired it with a ‘red rose’ necklace because A) a rose for Melissa Rose (my middle name) + B) a rose necklace definitely lasts a bit longer than a bouquet of red roses! And of course a red lip is essential…
I love a feminine looking skirt…especially a little white on white action like this white faux leather skirt and white pointed toe pumps. I have been searching high and low for white pointed toe pumps everywhere and finally I found them here (for under $40)!
I fell in LOVE with this Rebecca Minkoff clutch when I spotted it at Nordstrom Rack, while I can’t seem to find links to it anywhere online, I found similar options below 🙂
Do you guys have plans for Valentine’s Day yet? If not…no worries you can still shop my look and look stylish with your gal pals sipping wine venting about dating (that’s what I may end up doing…minus the wine…a little fun fact about me…I’m turning 23 and honestly don’t like to drink…yes I am a freak of nature lol)| Click To Shop + Share My Look |
Nothing pulls a look together better than a great red lip! Whether your a lipstick kinda gal or you prefer a tinted gloss, a red lip can instantly transform your look and make your lips so much more kissable! Think about it, what is sexier than a woman applying lipstick or lip gloss, puckering up and having that feeling of satisfaction once she is finished…umm nothing!
As Valentines Day approaches, here is my roundup of my favorite Red lip colors coming in a variety of shades and prices…making the classic red lip and easy ‘Do’ for every gal this season! Whether it’s a girls night out or a hot date night, trust me you can never go wrong with a chic red lip!
While I’m not afraid to admit I tend to always go for a ‘nude’ or neutral gloss, every once in a while I feel inspired to spice things up with a shot of red. I’ve always been envious of the girls who had the confidence to pull of a red lip…I was constantly worried that red simply didn’t match with my skin tone or feared looking like a clown or an old lady, but the trick to a perfect red lip is easy…find what shade works best for you. It can be a 99 cent brand or a designer brand, doesn’t make a difference, not all reds look good on everyone…find what works for you!
My personal favorite is ‘Red Haute‘ from Ulta…just the name won me over and the shade suits me perfectly (the one I’m applying in the pictures 😉 )!
Check out some great shades of red below and spice up your girls night or date night! 🙂
A timeless classic that’ll never go out of style is wearing your birthstone. Since my birthday is this month, my birthstone happens to also double as my favorite color…amethyst! I personally wear my birthstone everyday in the form of this chic ring from Macy’s that I bought myself back in high school (yes, sometimes you need to treat yourself 😉 right ladies?)
I feel a birthstone is a piece of jewelry every fashionista should wear, it’s simple and understated. Whether you wear it as a necklace, a bracelet or even a ring, it’s bling that tells a little about you, or at least says when you were born! These pieces below are some of my favorites from the amethyst birthstone this month. #1..the David Yurman bracelet is on my ‘lust‘ list that needs to become a ‘must’ 😉 It’s a classic that I feel every gal needs to have in her jewelry rotation…and soon it’ll hopefully be in mine!
