Who’s got Valentine’s Day on their mind? I do! January is going by so fast you guys, it’s crazy! I don’t know about you but I’m always looking for an excuse to get dressed up. When it comes to Valentine’s Day you can wear whatever you like – but I think of red, black, pink, lace, and velvet specifically. I found this gorgeous dress that fit my criteria and instantly I thought of 2 events, one being a Valentine’s Day dinner and the other being a cocktail event we have coming up. From the moment I found this dress online I was totally on board. Not only do I love lace – and hello that’s so perfect for Valentine’s Day, but let’s talk about the sleeves! Did you check out those gorgeous sleeves? We all know statement sleeves are having a moment, pair that with a black lace dress that fits beautifully and is affordable and – sold!
What I specifically love about this dress, besides the off-the-shoulder and embellished sleeves that are so on trend right now, is the forgiveness of this dress! I ordered this dress before Christmas at my lower weight and due to unexpected life events I haven’t lost my Christmas weight yet and it still fits! Can we say this dress is stretchy and oh so forgiving? Isn’t that the best kind of dress?
I paired it with my trusty YSL clutch and Stuart Weitzman patent leather sandals and I’m loving the chic black on black look! This dress also comes in a slightly different look with a nude lining instead of a black, which is just as gorgeous. I seriously had a hard time choosing. The fit is true to size, and like I mentioned it’s on trend, plus comfortable! This cocktail dress will not torture you, I promise!!! I had so much fun wearing this dress for the photos, now I can’t wait to wear it out in real life!
If you’re having more of a casual Valentine’s Day, how about this cute top I posted about last week? The colors come in red, white, and pink, making it the perfect flirty date or Valentine’s Day top.
