Romance is in the air! Yes ladies, it’s that time of year again when we celebrate our love for that special someone in our lives. It’s time to break out that haute dress, those sexy pumps and channel our inner vixen for a day of excitement and passion.
Valentine’s Day is synonymous with the color red, and the day is often surrounded by crimson-colored symbols such as hearts, red roses, and all types of decadent goodies that have come to signify this day of love. Red is also a very mysterious and alluring tone, and it definitely begs for attention in any setting. And although it’s a traditional hue for Heart-Day; this year I’m gonna “trust my instincts” and go bold in a color that screams passion… Purple!
And let me tell ya; I am a bit overdue on the bold. 🙂 I mean, the last time my look was teetering on “bold” was sometime during the late 80’s when I rocked this multi-tiered asymmetrical bob hairstyle, which made me look like the fourth (and forgotten) member of Salt-N-Pepa. And, unfortunately there’s an innumerable amount of photos floating amongst friends and family to validate my fashion faux pas from the “Push-It” years. 😛 But, not to worry divas, you won’t ever see me rockin the bob hairdo ever again. No ma’am! I’m aiming for more fierce, more daring, more passion this go ‘round, and I know just the look to pull it off.
I’m gonna start by letting my imagination run wild in this fierce (1.) “Marilyn” Short Convertible Dress by Monif C ($195). This original piece is super versatile not to mention super sexy, and can be tied in a variety of fabulous styles including a halter dress, dress with sleeves, skirt, baby doll top, and every other way you can imagine. Just think, you can get 20+ styles in one fabulous dress. What more can a diva ask for!?
Then I’m gonna turn up the heat in these (2.) Tribal Fluff leopard print earrings from Pritti Gemz ($25), that just ooze of sexiness!
Next, I will pair them with this huge (3.) Gold Cuff bracelet, also from Pritti Gemz ($8), and make a statement!
Last but not least, I will complete the look with these sultry (4.) “Sophiaa” pumps ($109.99) by Betsey Johnson.
Or I may get a lil frisky in these (5.) “Vise” leopard pumps ($124.99); also by Betsey Johnson.
Now, I can’t let all this hauteness go unnoticed, right? No, Lovelies…that’ll never do. I’ve gotta go out and flaunt this sexy new look around town. But where ever shall I go? Hmmm… Somewhere elegant, yet sexy, and uber-chic…
I’m thinking dinner at the luxurious Ellis Hotel in downtown Atlanta overlooking Peachtree Street atop the upscale Terrace Restaurant. Its enchanting ambiance is the consummate setting for an evening filled with romance. And speaking of which, I’d loved to cap off my night of passion in a deluxe suite at the Ellis Hotel, complete with a rose petal covered bed, decadent chocolates, and a glass of Merlot. A suite at the Ellis Hotel would definitely serve as the perfect backdrop with its boutique sophistication, hip décor, and trendy flair.
Well, now that I’m feeling all lovey-dovey and looking fab-o-licious;
it’s time to flaunt my stuff Salt-N-Pepa-style. “Ooo Baby Baby!!!”
