Happy Valentine’s Day Fashionistas! February is the season of love, giving us ladies the perfect excuse to get all dolled up. It’s time to feel glamorous ladies get ready! Whether you are going out on the town to mingle or grabbing a romantic dinner with your loved one I am here to help. Check out what’s in my closet and cupid’s arrow will be shot in your direction.

Going downtown with your girlfriends? You are in luck Fashionistas, backs are back! This mauve sparkly dress will give you that perfect subtle sexy. This dress not only hugs your curves but also is dipped in the back. Open backs are simply captivating, you can still seduce without wearing the bare all plunging neck line. The mauve color gives this seductive look the right amount of feminine elegance.

Trade in your patent leather pumps for some sheen and shine. What’s not to love about this stingray leather pattern sling slingback? This shoe is so versatile. Wear it with your going out dress or with a cute pair of boot cut jeans. The silver and gold luster print allows you to wear it with either gold or silver jewelry.  These Vince Camuto kicks truly give you more bang for your buck.

We all desire kissable lips especially on Valentine’s Day makeup artist Trish McEvoy has found the magic formula to leave you with luscious lips. Her sheer lip color gives your lips a pop with bold colors such as “passion fruit” which is one of my favorites. The lipstick is also infused with a collagen synthesizer boosting your smackers moisture and volume. One try and I was hooked. This holiday I want you looking great from head to toe, so why not start with this tube of perfection?

As much as I love Valentine’s Day I am not one a fan of the universal, Hallmark, somewhat gaudy symbol of the heart. I tend to find that if not executed in the most elegant manner hearts look rather childish and overused. However, I found these Marc by Marc Jacobs stud earrings absolutely charming. These earrings were love at first sight. I love the bigger heart shape and its size.  These golden delights are a perfect detail to any outfit you choose to wear.
