Retro Valentine

Hello there gorgeous people, 

Valentine's Day, is over-rated according to some, while others count days to this holiday. I'm not particularly a fan of it, but the reason I love it is because stores fill their racks with heart goodies and I get to pick up tons of them because I love hearts! Anyhow, I thought it was only fair that I do valentine posts for people who are celebrating it. I'll be showing you two looks that you can wear this valentine's day. Will be doing this over a series of two posts. This being the first one. 

Valentine's day is usually associated with red, hearts, roses and kisses. While I usually would wear something like that; I think this season you should do something radical and maybe not wear what everyone's wearing. If I was to go for a dinner date, or perhaps a formal valentine dinner with a bunch of friends, I'd wear something like this. 

What I've done for this look is: I've picked up a very retro-esque top with ruffles and pleats and to go with it I've gone for a side bun with a hint of curls in the front to frame my face. And the hair is also something very retro. To add to the elements, I've paired this black and white colour blocked top with white loafers. Wore my boot cut pants because I wanted to give this a back-in-time feel. Finished it with some valentine-y ness by adding the heart scarf and purple sling! And you're good to go. My theme was purple, black and white. You could even pick perhaps greens and blues and add white for a softer effect. 

For the face, like me you could just apply basic eye shadow and maybe some mascara to add to the flirtacious look. Don't forget to add some pink lips to finish your look. 

What do you think?
