Valentine's Day Colors

Valentine's Day is famous for pushing most women, both single and married to flock to the store and purchase a new dress; usually a red one. But, BEWARE!  Have you ever seen a group of women hanging out together all wearing red? If the outfit is ill fitting, or simply wrong for the woman's body it can get ugly fast. Red is a color that commands attention, so if you decide to go that route make sure whatever you are commanding attention to is impeccable.
Red is associated with desire, fire, love, and has been medically proven to affect blood pressure. Red is also the color Toreros use in bull fighting...

Red is just one of those colors that will get you noticed, but in the sea of dresses and choices on what to wear for this Valentine's Day, I propose something unexpected-say a turquoise blue or a playful pink.
Softness and femininity are the two adjectives that come to mind when choosing the images for the dresses below... I say dare to be different and stand out.

If you still feel you can't live without some VDAY symbols and red touches in your outfit, look for statement making accessories.

The cool thing about buying accessories for Valentine's Day is that you can pair them with a simple black or white dress & even wear them again next year with another outfit... There is no such thing as too many bracelets, necklaces or rings. Hint: Yes, I accept all of the above as Valentine's Day gifts ;)
