Red is the New Black: Dresses, Purses and Shoes for Valentine's Day

Wednesday February 13, 2013 by Alexandra C.

While our all time love will always be a LBD, we think it might be time to shake things up and inject some colour into February. We're suggesting: Red (surprise). There's a reason that Little Red Riding Hood chose it as her signature hue. Red is hot. It's universally flattering and always makes a statement. Whether you're doing red as print, pattern or solid, it's an impactful colour and we think the perfect one for V-Day.

I'm loving the ChicWish Wrap Dress, the skirt looks like it's got a perfect amount of puff. And the Aldo Bernell Clutch is to die for! I love how it's shaped like an envelope, perfect to carry sweet notes around in.

Love the J Crew dress! So cute and flirty, prefect for a date night with your sweetheart!
I saw the Kate & Mel shoes at Town Shoes yesterday, they're pretty wild! The studs somewhat reminds me of those Candy Button sweets :)
