Let's Paint The Town Red

It's that time of year where you want to look your best whether heading out with your SO or grabbing some dinner with your friends. We came up with a few outfit ideas, casual or dressy depending on the occasion, that will help you out if you are in a style crunch. We also added a personal message in the video, which we've included a special gift to you all! Hope you enjoy =)


Top: Ella Moss $34, original $98
Bottom: Seven for all Mankind Jeans - $150
Necklace: Fresh water pearls
Bracelet: Fresh water pearls


I bought this top a couple months ago and haven't had a chance to wear it yet and thought this would be perfect to wear for a dressy yet casual look. I think it's so sexy when a woman shows her shoulder and loved the asymmetrical draping on the top that slightly reveals one shoulder. You can't tell from the picture but I'm wearing jeans to dress it down because this is one of those tops that could go either way if done right.

Cardigan: Forever 21 3/4 sleeves in red - ~$9.99
Top: Camisole top from BCBG over BR's tank top - ~$60 & $20 respectively
Bottom: AX dark-wash jeans - $99
Necklace: Tiffany's bow necklace - ~$125


I chose this outfit for my casual Vday wear with the obvious red theme going through it. It's a little dressy but pairing with nice jeans give it the casual feel. I went simple with jewelry and my Tiffany's bow necklace added a nice touch to the whole outfit.


Dress: F21 - $19.99
Belt: Vintage
Ring: F21 - $5.99
Necklace: Fresh water pearls
Watch: David Yurman


Since Vday usually involves red/pink I thought that this dress fit well for the occasion:) Again, I love the off the shoulder look on this outfit. I added a belt to cinch the waist a little, because the dress doesn't fit me as well as I'd like. This belt is actually my mom's that she wore back in the 70's. How great is that? I absolutely love the quirkiness to it. I've never bought F21 jewelry before until I saw this ring at the store. It's fun, bold, and CHEAP! Can't go wrong with that.

Cardigan: F21 3/4 sleeves in black ~$9.99
Dress: BCBG - ~$80
Necklace: Tiffany's bow necklace - $125


When I have nothing to wear for a special occasion, this dress is my go-to dress. It gives your body a nice sleek silhouette, but yet modest at the same time. Because of the prints on the dress, keeping your accessories simple is the key.

I hope this gives you a better idea on what to wear for Vday. Remember, this day is not just for couples, but for loved ones too so grab your friends or family and make it a great one!

Wish there were pics of an entire outfit. Curious to see how you girls paired those tops with jeans.
