This weekend is Valentine's Day weekend. And even though Theo and my idea of a romantic time is watching The Flash on Hulu,
it doesn't mean I can't dress the part...
Yes, love is a many splendored thing but so is dressing for the occasion! I've been looking forward to staying indoors and out of the way of date-nighters, makeup-diners, first timers and the obligatory symbolism that this holiday can bring out and give a bad name.
Instead, I wanted to play with the other stereotype of Valentine's Day:
the look of it all!
Theo and I are romantic almost 365 days out of the year. Extremely romantic. I married a man who loves love and he married a woman who loves to be absolutely adored. It worked out. But what I don't usually take the opportunity to do is indulge in my bohemian-romance daydreams. And what better occasion is there to go all out? And now I am sharing my lil romantic style side with you.
This look was made up of random fabrics and remnants I had in my sewing cabinet. For a chic minimalist like I like to think I am, I sure do own a lot of frilly crazy textiles. I guess it's all in how you wear it though. Afterall, I am only wearing two items.
I look forward to once and for all, doing something with these wonderful fabrics. Stay tuned!
oh, and happiest of Valentine's Days to you, lovely readers :)
