Valentine’s Day

For some Valentine’s day is the day of commerce – only there to fill the store’s cashbox. But for others it’s the day of love. I am torn between the two. Somehow I like the idea of a day for love but at the same time it gives me a chill when I see all this sob stuff in some stores sold for Valentine’s Day.
Thus to find some less kitschy things for Valentine’s Day was quite necessary for my taste conscience.

Things to wear:

left: dress by LP.BG, right: top by Lerario Beatriz via Amélie Boutique

And at last a very pinky suggestion
