What To Wear This Valentine's Day 2017 - Two Styles in Starlet & Sophisticate

Hi readers!
Here are my two recommendations for this February 14th~
Remember that men are born visual creatures...
Choose a red dress that compliments your skintone (warm/cool), and make sure that it shows off your waistline well. And a little skin. Not too much but enough to make him remember your femininity and perhaps vulnerability... 

LOOK NO.1 ::: THE STARLET 
This outfit is in part inspired by the YSL Fragrance *Parisienne* 
I tested this a week ago at the Hanoi Airport and it is a lovely chic fragrance.
The Starlet outfit is a perfect mix of an *urban young lady meets Gamine* feel~ 
The dress has a deep V neckline which is sexy with added black bows that makes the outfit totally unique. Keep your hair well coiffed in a casual romantic mood with a half up-do hair in curls.
For makeup, use shimmery glowy powders to give that rising star look~

Punch up the color palette with a satin bow clutch, perfect for any evening. Later you can wear it with your tuxedo style boyfriend jackets on weekends~~ ^_^
Shoes can be peep toe kitten heel sandals to round out your romantic dinner look. Keep your jewelry simple in gold and in keeping with your color palette. 

LOOK NO.2 ::: THE SOPHISTICATE 
This outfit for Valentine's Day Dinner Date was inspired by the YSL Fragrance Black Opium. I was looking for a more grown up perfume to wear with my floral dresses and this one turned out to be my top choice. =.) So this outfit is overall cosmopolitan and perfect for a fresh vibrant woman. 

First, her dress is red but with spaghetti straps that instantly screams *sexy and alluring* to a man. The waistline is lightly ruched and it even has crossover on the hem, revealing a bit of your thigh. So, all in all, it will be a very memorable image for your man. 

Hair is a natural but glamorous style with the upper part of the head kept slightly flat compared to the lower half of the hair being full-bodied curls. You want your hair to look coiffed and not beachy! The hair here is really important because it will frame your torso. 

Makeup is a red carpet type full on look, with precision given to laying down a flawless foundation and concealor base. If you feel like you are spending half on hour just on your base makeup, you're doing it right. Do not go overboard with your shimmers and highlights here; keep those well controlled just for defining your bone structure. This makeup look should feel like a fresh update of the 50s makeup but with a slightly more natural looking groomed eyebrows.

The shoes are the sexiest heels you can handle... Be sure to practice walking in them if you usually wear lower heels. Study your posture because if you slump this dress will not look right... ^^

Keep the clutch in a simple design and color. The jewelry needs one accent like a chunky bracelet as you are exposing quite a lot of your bare arms. Simple dangling earrings look great for a dinner date look. And every time you tilt your head a little bit, your eaarings will do some of the flirting FOR you!!

OK ladies. I sincerely hope you will have a magnificent evening out with your Dream Guy!
Bonne chance!

Love & Giggles,
