What To Wear For Valentines Day

50 Is Not Old | Valentine's Day 2016What do you wear for Valentine’s Day? Do you go out, or just stay at home? I think this dress would be perfect for a date night out on the town. This year though, I think we are staying home, and I am going to cook my husband a nice dinner. I will not be wearing this dress while I cook. LOL! 50 Is Not Old | Valentine's Day 2016I bought this dress in Orlando at the White House Black Market outlet store. This was on the clearance rack, (I always check the clearance rack) for only 9.99. SCORE!!! I wan’t sure how I would like the ribbed section around my middle. I wanted to show you how the dress looked with no jacket or belt. I added a vintage seed pearl necklace (one of my favorites), a vintage seed pearl bracelet, and a vintage purse. I am rocking it “old style.” Haha50 Is Not Old | Valentine's Day 2016I just had to show you a close-up of this necklace, it is so beautiful. This is as close to my necklace as I could find. You can’t see through my hair, but I have on a pair of Chloe & Isabel earrings. I was putting these on the other morning, and I dropped one of them onto my tile floor. I was devastated when I looked down, and the long crystal had broken. I took both parts to work, and one of my friends glued it back for me. You can’t even see where it was broken.  50 Is Not Old | Valentine's Day 2016I should have taken a picture of the back of these hose, they have the old-timey seam up the back. I put on my Michael Kors black pumps, and that completed my outfit. When I came through to take my picture, my husband wanted to know where I was going. I think he thought I was a little overdressed for work. Haha50 Is Not Old | Valentine's Day 2016I took my picture, then threw on this short Joan Rivers jacket. The pearl details are wonderful on this jacket. I have only worn this a few times. It seems to over shadow everything I put it on with, and I end up taking if off. However, I love it with this dress. I think I might try it with a pair of jeans and a tucked in shirt next time.50 Is Not Old | Valentine's Day 2016It even looks good with the vintage pearl jewelry. Look closely at the bracelet. I bought it at the vintage fashion show, after I had to enter into a bidding war, and I love it. Look at the clasp in the picture above and below. 50 Is Not Old | Valentine's Day 2016This is the closure. I like that it looks great on both sides, sometimes bracelets tend to turn around on my arm. This one would look great no matter what side was showing.50 Is Not Old | Valentine's Day 2016I changed the pumps for these Marc Fisher ankle boots. I have worn these boots all fall and winter, I have definitely gotten my money’s worth. There is actually a term for this, it is called cost-per-wear. You take the price you paid for an item, and divided that by the number of times it has been worn. 50 Is Not Old | Valentine's Day 2016Now we are down to what I wore to work. I kept on the dress (to my husbands shock), but took off the pearls. I thought the pumps and the ankle boots were just a little too dressy for the lumber company. So, I added my black micro-suede over the knee boots. Don’t get me wrong, the others were sharper looking, but these were more practical for the 25 degree weather we are having. Here is a nice pair, and here is a more price friendly pair.50 Is Not Old | Valentine's Day 2016I bought this snow leopard coat years ago, but I could count on one hand the number of times it has been worn. I like the coat, but it is too light for an outside type coat, and too heavy for a wear-all-day coat. I took the plunge and wore the coat over the dress all day, and I only had ONE hot flash. I am going to blame that on the coat and not my age. Haha  Here is a similar coat from Dollhouse, and here is a poncho that is perfect.

    You look beautiful in red. The different pairings of shoes, jackets, and accessories all compliment the dress, but I especially like the snow leopard coat with the suede boots.
    I, too, read your blog post while I drink my coffee; it’s a good way to begin my day.
    Enjoy your weekend, Tania!

      Thanks Coco. The coat and OTK boots were very warm and comfortable, especially for work.

    I love that dress and the color of course. I have so much trouble finding a dress because I have small shoulders. I just love the dress with the accessories and the jackets you styled it with. I like the booties best. Well, we are having a Valentine’s Party and my husband is really into it. He went out and actually bought more decorations. Sweet! So I am going to finish this post and figure out what I am going to wear. I have lots of red so I just have to put an outfit together. Wear that dress to church on Sunday! Wish I had time to tell you about my strange pets. My Mom was raised on a farm and she LOVES animals so we had all kinds of critters even in the city,

      I am thinking about wearing the dress to church this Sunday. I was hoping to wear the booties with it, but if it keeps up this snow it will be the OTK boots again. I hope you have fun at your Valentine’s Party. ??
