Better Off Red: Our Valentine’s Day Shopping Guide

February 5, 2009 • Holiday

Valentines Layout

Bah humbug! I'm a girly girl, but have to admit, I have never gotten into the Hallmark holiday that is Valentine's Day. First, I really don't like the color red on me, I don't care for roses (love the smell though), I can't stand anything heart-shaped and resent paying more to go out for dinner on February 14th. It's usually a giant let-down. I do love Necco candy hearts, but has anybody else noticed there are less in the box this year? I digress.

I am learning to appreciate deep, ruby reds (which I am better able to pull off) and red accessories. I mean, who can resist dark red Louboutins? So maybe I am getting a little more into the 'holiday' spirit.

Shopping Guide:

1. Fendi Circle-Sleeve Gown, $805. This is just stunning. Love the drama of the sleeves.

2. Dior Christal Red Rubber Chronograph 38mm, $5,350. I wouldn't complain if my husband gave me this instead of roses.

3.  Diptyque Red Tubereuse Candle, $68. Enjoy the scent of roses all year!

4. Christian Louboutin Turbella Metallic Sandals, $995. Come on, at least the soles are red!

5. Valentino Petale Dome Bag, $2,495

6. Hunter Original Tall Wellington Boots, $115. Come April, a girl has to stay dry.

7. Lipstick Queen Sinner by Poppy King, $18. Her lipsticks are the best.

8. Christian Louboutin Orlan Double Platform T-Straps, $885. If I could walk in these without fear pof breaking my neck, I would own them.

9. Large Skull Notebook by Assouline, $90. This totally reflects my sentiment of the holiday.

10. La Perla Fringed Balconette Bra, $220. Boom chica boom!

11. 3.1 Phillip Lim Asymmetric Cadet Jacket, $595. Cadet jackets are no longer just for kids.

12.  Miu Miu Crinkle patent Shoulder Bag, $1,295. I would have problems carrying this bag either.

13. Jimmy Choo Eliza Patent Sandals, $585. Stunning!

14. Maison Martin Margiela Side-Layer Top, $875
