Roses are red, violets are blue. I like pretty flowers and red lipstick too! Now I know Valentine’s Day is either an I love it or I hate it holiday because you’re either A.in a relationship posting lovey dovey insta pics (yahhh I love it) or B. a single lady drowning your single gal sorrows in a bottle of champagne and a pint of mint chocolate chip ice cream while watching “The Notebook.” (Ew, I hate it). I, however, have a soft spot for Valentine’s Day. Two years ago on February 14th, I had my first date with my now and forever boyfriend. It started with a bouquet of red roses at my desk and ended with dinner in the Lower East Side at a cute little restaurant called Sweet Chick. Last year, our second Valentine’s Day together, he bought me two dozen roses (not only because it was Valentine’s Day, but because it was my last day being 24) and took me to dinner in Williamsburg at the Meatball Shop-yum! So yes, I’m an I love it girl because I have a great guy who is a romantic and spoils me not only on this special day but every day. He doesn’t know this yet, but I’m dragging him to see 50 Shades Darker with me this Valentine’s Day..sorry babe!
So with the special date night right around the corner (t-minus 14 days), it’s time to start shopping for that special date night outfit. Instead of the typical red dress or heart patterned shirt, try something different this year like a red lipstick skater dress with a peter pan collar, black chunky booties, and tights to try to keep your legs semi-warm on the cold February nights. Don’t forget to complete the look with some red matte lipstick for smoochable lips.
