Rain & Romance

The sunny NorCal spring has come to a (temporary?) end -- today I awoke to grey drizzle, meaning I could only use the porch for a morning photo. The outfit I planned for Valentine's Day has just a touch of old-school (read: 1980s) romance. Nothing too obvious, no red or pink or hearts. Just a bit of RomantiGoth around the edges, plus it's comfy enough that I can wear it for the dinner at home my sweet hubby is making tonight.

What I'm wearing:
Floral print knit top, H&M
Black gauzey skirt, Rampage
Black elastic faux-corset belt, Torrid
Dark grey denim bell-sleeved blazer, Newport News
Black tights, Calvin Klein
Burgundy faux-suede boots, DSW
Chunky gunmetal & rhinestone choker, random accessory stor
Gunmetal hoop earrings, Icing
Sparkly gunmetal cocktail ring, Icing
Dark burgundy lipstick, Chanel "Vamp"

Do you dress for holidays?  Did you do anything specific for Valentine's Day?

notice that tablecloth? yep, it's the same type as the
cloth that I made a skirt out of!


  1. I wore heart-shaped silver dangly earrings and painted my nails red for this weekend :)

  2. We always get a heart-shaped pizza from Lou Malnati's. I have had it shipped since we moved away from Chicago, so we ate at home. I wore my Valentine's pjs.

  3. HollyElise - Ooo, I like that. Red nail polish is classic.

    LovleAnjel - Sounds yummy. I had authentic Chicago pizza once & looooooooved it :-)

  4. That is a beautiful outfit! The belt puts an edge on the romantic floral print.

    My only concession to V-Day was screaming pink nail polish.

  5. Laurie - Thanks! And you know I'm a big fan of screaming pink nails.

  6. Great outfit (love the belt).

    We celebrated on Saturday, so I dressed for that.

  7. I have fall in love with your corset >_<. You look gorgeous!

    My boyfriend has always said he doesn´t like Valentine´s Day, so we never do something special. But this year he sent me a lovely vampire valentine postcard ^_^. It was a very nice surprise.
