Valentine’s Day Outfit: Pink vs. Red

It’s Valentine’s Day, darlings, and that means it’s time for an epic battle of love (right?). We styled two Valentine’s Day outfits for two kinds of gals – the Lady in Red or Pretty in Pink (a.k.a. 80’s Barbie). From sugar to spice, we’ve got that last minute VDay outfit inspiration you need.

P.S. I went a little crazy with a lavender hair toner to see what would happen, and had a little temporary lilac hue going when we did this shoot! This hair makeover is giving me LIFE these days. Once you go platinum white, you never go back… right?

Pretty in Pink

I felt like a cupcake in this dress – in the best way possible. All the girly vibes had me ready for an 80’s themed VDay party. I added my vegan leather jacket to edge up the look a bit, and a pair of new sunnies for that extra touch of glam. Don’t forget a locally made lipstick in hot pink!

Lady in Red

Silk = sexy. This silk DVF dress is SO va-va-voom, I was swooning as soon as it touched my skin. For the spicier gal, this dress is made to show off some curves, and light up the room in the crisp red hue. With a dress this sexy, keep the accessories simple and understated. I opted for a pair of tassel earrings by Pan&Tea, a classic (locally made) red lipstick, and a side swept ‘do to add a touch of elegance. And just because, threw my Anthropologie leather jacket over my shoulders again for that finishing statement piece.

    I’m obsessed with the pink …mostly because I’m obsessed with pink!! These looks are both STUNNING on you! And I wish I was brave enough/ cool enough to pull of fun hair colors like you! I love the silvery look!

      Thanks so much, girl! The pink was so girly and fun – I felt like a doll! It’s funny, because I never used to like pink until I went silver a few weeks ago. Now I want all the soft pinks and purples! 🙂
