Valentine's Day is one of my favorite holidays. Like any observing holiday - like Mother's Day or Thanksgiving - for me, it's a day to celebrate my love for my family and the amazing people in my life.
Valentine's grumps, beware! Love is in the air!
this year I wanted to play with the style of "love" for a moment.
Since romantic is not a usual look I rock (I'm more of a modern minimalist) I was excited to have an excuse to put together something different, girly and fun.
Like I really needed an excuse though, right?
Whenever I play with a different style than my own, since it's temporary I go a less expensive route of course and hit up the Garment District, fabric shops and thrift stores. This time, I had a specific look in mind: a lovely hybrid between my minimalist ways and a whimsical, ultra romantic styling. I designed a lounge-like swing jacket made of deep navy lace and paired it with what else? Chic white gypsy pants. Whipped it all together fast for a Tiny glamour shoot!
jacket: Tiny Closet Collection / bandeau: Max Mara / pants: Tiny Closet Collection / lipstick: M.A.C. Ruby Woo
Feeling nostalgic - and needing a nicer bandeau than my trusty lycra ones, I grabbed the bandeau from my Max Mara wedding dress. I've been on a gypsy pant kick lately so I made another pair out of a gorgeous drapy material leftover from when I made this Summer dress.
I hope you all enjoy the spirit of tomorrow and if you have a special someone, it's fun to get a little sultry and glam.
Drunk In Loooooove!!!
