Ahhh, valentines day. You either love it or hate it. Honestly, I get both sides. I think celebrating love is a great thing, but I do think that we should focus on all kinds of love not just romantic love. It is a super commercialised holiday though and that’s where I don’t like it. Also, who says you have to celebrate on this one day? Any day can be valentines day, right?
Anyways, I thought we could use a cute date night outfit (in this case date night refers to anything with friends, family or a loved one!).
This is a bit of a throwback (hence the long hair). I wore this out to dinner with one of my friends to this delicious asian restaurant with the most amazing Kung Pao Chicken. I was a bit overdressed but honestly, I felt great in this outfit. The dress is by a brand called Shakuhachi (which unfortunately I don’t think exists anymore). It has beautiful elasticized bands which are very flattering. The shoes are Louboutin’s. The style is called Neotrente and I think they are perhaps one of my favourite shoes I own (I love heels with an ankle strap).
The bag is a Miss Dior and was a gift from my mother. After I finished school we went on a trip to Europe together to see the family. We had a couple week’s in both London and Paris. I had saved and saved for ages because I wanted to buy a beautiful bag in Paris by a french designer. Anyways when I got to Paris and saw the price of the bags I realized that there was no way in hell that I could afford anything! For a girl who worked in a cafe there was no chance of being able to buy most of the things in these stores (I probably could have bought a keychain). Anyways, she surprised me and Galeries Lafayette and bought me this Dior that I loved. It also has a beautiful strap which isn’t pictured here. I’ll have to share it with you guys some other time.
As I’m sure you can tell, this bag is very precious to me and always reminds me of my mum and that amazing holiday. Not to mention, it’s a perfect time to share this story being valentines day and all.
I hope you all spend the day with people and things you love!
Lots of Love,
