Be My Valentine?

A lot of my friends at school were bitter about Valentine's Day today. I know that its commercial and it was created by the Halmark people or whatever, but really? I've never been bitter about the holiday, single or not; I just never saw the point in being negative. Its like being mad at President's day because the majority of us are not the president. As far as I am concerned, Valentine's day is just an excuse to wear pink or red or white or purple or all of the above!

I am actually in awe that I own this dress. I remember seeing it in Teen Vogue years ago- in their annual prom issue- and I'd always remembered it. Truly its stunning. Phillip Lim always makes the prettiest little dresses. I wish I could meet him, or at least talk to him. I'd love to know how he thinks up these beauties.

3.1 Phillip Lim zipper dress, Mr. Kate starburst earrings, American Apparel nail polish, MAC lipstick in Chili.

I totally agree with you. It's a day about expressing your love! The only reason it's become commercialised is because we've made it that way.

I loooooove your dress!

I owned the same issue of Teen Vogue because from the moment I saw a glimpse of this post, I was racking my mind, trying to figure out where I had seen it before!

What a wonderful dress. And those earrings, and your nails all pastel, seems like the perfect day to me!

I can't help but wonder where you found it?

Mr. Kate said...

GORG!!!

Nicole said...

LOVE the earrings! If they were maybe red or yellow they would look like one of those comic book "Pow!"s.

Chelsea said...

You are so lucky to have that dress! I still constantly look back in awe at that teen vogue spread!
And I adore your nail polish

LUCHER said...

The moment I saw your earrings I couldn't avoid thinking about a cartoon my sister and I used to watch when we were young. Maybe you know it:

For what I remember the earrings did some kind of magic :) I guess the color of your dress and your nails helped with the association I made between you and Jem haha

hope u had a great st valentine's day!

i NEED TO KNOW where you got that nail polish! it is so fantastic. i'm a bit obsessed with nail polish, i have to say.

Anonymous said...

The dress is lovely, and you look fantastic. Remember to dress a bit more modestly, especially at your age - you'll have time to dress more scantily once you're old.

I love your outfit!

Why would you want to dress scantily when you're old? Nobody wants to look at old ladies dressing like 16 year olds. I think the dress is amazing.
Especially the hooks and eyes on shoulders.
Thanks S.W, I love you!

I completely agree about the 'commercialized' tidbit. I mean, how many people honestly celebrate Christmas solely for religious or family reasons? Not that many, which is why Christmas is the most bankable holiday for major corporations. It's the same for every holiday.

this is seriously the ugliest effin dress i've ever seen.
