Dear Valentine

While the old adage “it’s what’s on the inside that counts” is recognised worldwide, what’s on the outside has undisputed merits-especially when it comes to the lover’s celebration of Valentine’s Day. Celebrated on 14th February, the day first became associated with romantic love within the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer in the 14th century, when the tradition of courtly love flourished.

In the 18th century, it involved into an occasion in which loved ones expressed their love for each other by presenting flowers, offering greeting cards, and buying gifts for one another. It became known as a romantic symbol and an invitation to unlock the lovers heart. Today, the holiday keeps its lovely tradition and is celebrated the same in modern society.

Love is in the air and while men are flocking to the stores to figure out what to get their loved ones. Let us reflect with knowing, the most romantic thing in the world is celebrating the love you have for someone every single day, instead of just once a year.

For the V-day edit, let’s celebrate everything Valentine (Rome wording) with red and pink being the most popular tones for this love letter. Our fascination with this romantic holiday and our equal fascination with setting fire to it with a huge celebration, explores our singularly fiery passion that burns bright. Some people get so excited about this day, they can’t seem to focus on much else and equally rush to impress.

Men and women feel a great deal of pressure, trying to get the right gift to surprise their significant other. So what is the best way to fix this constant anxiety? Believe it or not, women seem to harbour the most stress in recent studies. The best way to handle living up to the hype, is to write to Dear Valentine and we will take all the weight off of your shoulders.

Dear Valentine,

My name is Jessica, and I can’t seem to figure out the best thing to wear when I go out for my date with my husband. What is the best thing for me to do?

Dear Valentine’s Answer: Well Jessica, believe it or not a lot of women have this issue. Even though they have gone on many dates with their husband before, when it comes to a special holiday like love day. It seems your mind becomes rather blank and washed out. You start to ask yourself, what do I do? I have the answer for you today. Try The Bombshell Dress! You will feel like a fierce goddess in no time.

The Bombshell Dress- The foundation of date-ready style is a dress that’s sexy yet sophisticated. Go for red, since it is the colour of love and lust. 

Dear Valentine,

Hi I’m Bridgette and I have no idea what to do about my boyfriend’s V-Day lunch. He is working tonight and decided to take me on a celebrated love lunch and I don’t know what to wear on my lips. Any tone suggestions?

Dear Valentine’s Answer: Hi Bridgette, I love that your boyfriend still wishes to celebrate with you even though he must work at night. Many people are not sure if they should go with trends when it comes to a great lip colour. Let me tell you never do less. I know most makeup artists will tell you to wear less for day and go crazier at night. That beauty tip is far off course. Go for a bold and brilliant red lip! It is not only a classic colour but studies have shown that men prefer some women with a red lip because it resembles sex appeal, while still being classy and flawless.

Bold Lip- A ravishing bold red lip is always sexy. Whether day or night, you can rock this colour fresh faced during the day for lunch and go all out for night! Try Tom Ford’s matte red lip it is classy and demure. Don't be afraid to add a bit edge and have some fun. 

Dear Valentine,

I’m Olivia and I have my outfit all ready to go on a date my pals set me up with. My only issue is I’m very casual when it comes to my purses. I always have a tote at hand except it is super casual and sporty like me. How do I get the right bag to be a lot dressier please help?

Dear Valentine’s Answer: Olivia a lot of people think totes can go with you anywhere. Besides having lunch with girlfriends, or a day out shopping. A tote is a handy thing to have. I recommend everyone have at least one in your collection. When it comes to a more formal occasion, you defiantly need to invest in a more polished bag.

The Polished Bag- Don’t settle for less, turn up the volume with a glance of structured hotness in a grand, vibrant, and playful bag with a sassy shade. 

Dear Valentine,    

My name is David and I bought my fiancé a lovely necklace for Valentine’s Day. I’m just wanting to add to her gift with a pair of shoes but I honestly, don’t know the first thing about women’s shoes help me out.

Dear Valentine’s Answer: David as a man I’m sure your fiancé doesn’t expect you to be an expert when it comes to shoes. Don’t worry about the stress believe me the best thing you can do is get her a nice pair of knockout shoes.

The Knockout Shoe- A shoe can make you stand out of the crowd and make you look gorgeous. Go for details and textures that really show off your personal style.

Dear Valentine,

My name is Anna and I don’t know the best gift to get my man for V-Day. I’m kind of nervous because I want to make a solid impression. I got him a tie last year, this time around needs to be different. All my emotions are running high, what should I do?

Dear Valentine’s Answer: Anna if your emotions are running high, I recommend a good old fashioned cocktail. On a serious note, don’t pass out. I’m sure your man loves you for a reason and he will be equally just as in love, if you present him with a gift that is from the heart and has your loving signature attached. 

A Gift He Will Love- When you go for a romantic lunch or dinner date. Not only are you ready to have an amazing moment but you can defiantly put a smile on his face this Valentine’s Day with a hand-picked gift.

In new, spring-ready hues our, excitement is flourishing! We adore love day and don’t mind celebrating with a modern romance.

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone from Bauchle Fashion.
