Black Velvet Cupid Dress

Shop the dress ↗

I’ve had my eye on this dress for a while and I think it is absolutely perfect for valentines day! Its romantic, off-the-shoulder silhouette paired with the most elegant velvet gloves will ensure that you’re completely on-brand for the festivities! If I were wearing this I’d pair it with opaque black tights and a killer patent-pointed court heels. Give them fashion!


Moonbag satin clutch

Shop the bag ↗

Even though mini bags are slowly being phased out, this one is definitely one to consider. A reimagined version of a clutch means it’s easy to hold as it has a top handle, but is small enough not to be considered overstated. Perfect for your necessities and can be worn during the day or night.

“Esme” Black Feather Trimed Oversize Blazer

Shop the blazer ↗

This feather blazer dress is so multipurpose it would be silly not to get it! Wear it alone, with cigarette pants underneath or even better, with black velvert thigh-high boots. Valentine’s day is basically your birthday part two so if you’re gonna step, step correct!


Crystal Bow Straps Mini Dress

Shop the dress ↗

This Area mini dress gives off the cutest baby doll vibes which will easily place you as the mascot of Soft Life FC. I really enjoy being cute, girly, and feminine when with my partner and love for it to be reflected in the way I dress too. The metallic reflective undertones give it the necessary edge to balance it out.

Open-toe Wedge Sandals

Shop the shoes ↗

I am obsessed with these heels! I’m so drawn to unusual silhouettes and these fit the bill. The hot pink color makes them the perfect statement and matches beautifully with the bag featured above.

“Mina” Black Structured Corset

Shop the top ↗

Since it’s valentines day, let’s turn the sexy up a notch! The neckline of this corset top is to die for and leaves enough space for the gorgeous jewellery you may be gifted on the day (hint hint). Pair with some cigarette pants, open toe sandals or black suede pointed heels to make a complete outfit.


“Millenia” Cocktail Ring

Shop the ring ↗

Cocktail rings are back in and are a great way to elevate any outfit. This green crystal ring from Swaroski is the perfect addition to any outfit you intend to wear to that swanky upscale restaurant.

Serafia Dress Coca

The gworls who follow me know that the chartreuse version of this dress (unfortunately) sold out in minutes after my try on haul on in my stories but I’ll do you one better! Here it is in brown. This dress is so dreamy and has the perfect balance of sexy, sultry, and stylish elements to it. I think the brown is equally as gorgeous as the chartreuse colour and would go perfectly with some nude sandal heels. 

Rene Caovilla

Cleo Leather Sandals

Shop the shoes ↗

I’m starting to feel like bronze metallic heels are the new nude (trust me, it makes sense) and you’ll be headed in the right direction with these Rene Caovilla strappy sandals. I think every girl needs a pair of these as they look great on absolutely everyone! They elongate the leg so beautifully and look great with trousers too. These won’t just be for valentines day they’ll be for life!
