With Valentine’s day quickly approaching, I thought I would put together a collections of hints that you may want to send to your Valentine (and if you are single, then treat yourself to something nice this V-day!).
I always look for an excuse to get new shoes, and Valentine’s day is no exception. I know that the red-soled Christian Louboutins are still all the rage, but I am growing more and more fond of Brian Atwood’s designs. His Maniac Pumps are super chic, surprisingly comfortable, and come in so many amazing colors. I love the neon pink, since it reminds me of Valentine’s day and is a super hot shade right now. See more colors here.
While it may be cliche to receive perfume on Valentine’s day, I couldn’t help but add this to my list because it smells so darn good! And the bottle is so gorgeous, it looks great just sitting on my vanity.
At first glance, I thought this was a Cartier Love bracelet, but it’s actually Michael Kors, and a lot less expensive I might add. It has the iconic bolts of the Cartier, and a great buckle detail. Find it here.
Where do I begin with this masterpiece of a ring? It may look like a funny growth to some, but I think it is one of YSL’s best creations. If you like really big statement rings, you will love this one. It comes in gold and silver, with many stones to choose from. Coral is a hot color for Spring, and is currently on pre-order here.
I am huge fan of clutches, especially the tiny box variety. It may not hold much, but I like to think of it more as a piece of jewelry that I hold rather than a bag. This DVF clutch is one of my favorites, and comes in so many colors and textures. I love the neon yellow (you may have noticed my obsession with neons), and it will look amazing against some brightly manicured nails. See the other colors here.
Of course, I have to include food since food is the way to my heart. I can’t think of anything that would put a smile on my face more quickly than a box of beautiful French macaroons. Not only are they delicious, but they are so pretty, you almost don’t want to mess up the box by eating one. You will soon get over that once you have one. (Oh, and they are naturally gluten-free!) My favorite spot in Houston is Maison Burdisso. Trust me, forget the chocolates this year, and order a box of these. Thank me later.
And finally, I’m not big on receiving clothing on Valentine’s day, but the one exception to that rule is cashmere. There is something so rich and romantic about cashmere. It’s also great for this time of year because it is light enough to wear in Spring, and warm enough to layer in the winter. I love J.Crew’s collection of Italian cashmere; it comes in many different style (short or long sleeve, button-down, crew-neck, or v-neck) and tons of beautiful colors. My favorite is this bright persimmon V-neck, but see the whole collection here.
Which of these gifts would you love to receive? What would you like that is not on the list?
I hope you all have an amazing Valentine’s day, and you spend it with the people you love. xoxo
