Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and I am excited about it. I know we will all be getting dressed up and buying gifts for that special someone, whoever that person is, to show them how much we love them. I get excited about the outfits, the gifts and the activities. Today I am going to share the look that I am going with for that special day.
I picked up a black dress a few weeks ago and I have been saving it ever since for this day. I figured since most of my little black dresses no longer fits, it was about time I started replacing them. It was just right for that and this. Who said you can’t go black for Valentine’s Day? Probably the same person that said “to hell with Valentines Day”. I have never had a bad taste in my mouth when it comes on to Valentine’s Day. Most persons do not celebrate such day and some do and that’s totally fine, just do not ruin the day for someone else.
Little Black Dress | Boutique of Molly
The black dress I’ll be featuring today is from Boutique of Molly. I love Boutique of Molly, their clothing is good quality, they have unique styles; plus they have recently branched off into accessories such as bags and purses. When Molly reached out to me a few years ago, actually when I just started blogging, the magic didn’t happen then. I’m glad I was able to go back and make this purchase because it is long over due and I am happy with it. The package arrived super quick, they have an amazing service, the items are affordable and they ship worldwide. There were no reasons not to. They are generous too, because they are giving everyone 20% when you shop using code “DELAINE20”.
Now back to the look, as you will see, this is a knee length, body-con dress. I love knee length dresses because they are less revealing and more comfortable. This one is really sexy and trendy, the off the shoulder trend is still in and this dress can be worn off the shoulders. Shoulders are sexy, so show them. Another thing, I love about this dress, is the sexy cut out at the front. Not too revealing, but definitely eye catching and stylish. Since it is knee length, I didn’t want to look flat, so I picked up a pair of chunky high heels to go with it. Chunky heels are super comfortable, regardless of the heel length; plus the higher the heels the closer to God!…No…but seriously, you wouldn’t want to be wearing kitten heels in a dress like this one, especially not on Valentine’s day.
For those who are sticking to their red roots, I went bold red with the heels for me and you. They are strappy too, I cut the straps short enough to my ankles, again, with knee length dresses, you cannot go all gladiator with the shoe, it will just be too much. Not to take away from the outfit. I did my hair in high ponytail, which is still a stylish look. I completed the look with a pair of gold earrings and a gold choker.
Definitely get that makeup on. If you want to get it done professionally to show off that look, go right ahead! and don’t forget your bold red lipstick. Do hope you enjoyed this post. Share it! and Happy Valentine’s Day.
