Valentine’s Day Red Dress

Valentine’s Day Red Lace Dress

With Valentine’s Day quickly approaching, I thought it would be good to share with you two different outfits that I’ve put together for the romantic celebration. This is the first, featuring this TOBI Callie Ruffle Lace Skater Dress in Red, and the second will be in a few days time! I went for something romantic and feminine with this combination, and the other one is a bit more sexy and night time appropriate, so they’re quite different from each other.

I rarely ever wear dresses, but when I saw this gorgeous red one on Tobi, I thought it would look amazing paired with my Christian Louboutin Pigalle in Black and my BVLGARI LVCEA Watch to add some sophistication. It turned out really pretty and as far as dresses go, I think this one is really feminine and flattering, especially in red. I think it could be worn both for the daytime and the evening though as it’s that perfect mix of in-between lengths for either occasion.

For Valentine’s Day in the previous years, I remember mostly opting for pink as well as burgundy sometimes, so I’m glad to change it up and do something different this time around. Yes it was absolutely freezing when we shot these photos (it was on Friday) and I almost couldn’t handle the bitter wind, but Adam and I persevered and we got them done. I think the photos turned out quite nice. What do you think? And stay tuned for the second look coming soon! What are your Valentine’s Day plans? Lorna xx.

P.S. – I have a very exciting Ormonde Jayne Candle giveaway happening right now on Facebook! All you have to do is follow both pages and comment on the entry photo, it’s really easy! The scent we’re giving away is Montabaco with notes of suede and wood – it’s gorgeous! Click here to enter.

    Nice bright red colour, perfectly designed, looking very pretty in it, nice deep neck, amazing way to show natural beauty, nice ceramic watch, and shine in your eyes, making me fall in love with you.

    Goog luck Lorna.

      Thanks! No party for me either, maybe on the weekend we will watch some movies!

    A genuinely well-designed dress: it dips just low enough at the neckline, and rises just high enough above the knee. Anything more in either direction might be construed as overdoing it. The simple but effective court shoes complete the look. πŸ™‚

    I love the pretty red lace! Are you wearing bird earrings? They’re cute. Last Friday I posted a black and white dress date night outfit on my blog. As far as Valentine’s Day, my husband and I will probably do something at home together in the evening.

    Always ignored Valentine’s Day because it is a commercial exercise. You’ve made me reappraise that view!

    This red dress as a suggestion for Valentine’s day is fantastic, dear Lorna! And the Louboutin shoes are perfect to match it! I also loved the watch and you look really, really amazing, so feminine and gorgeous! I am in a mad moment down here, but I always think of your lovely words – hope soon I will be in a better way! Hope you have a beautiful day! Hugs!

    My Valentine’s Day plans? Ignore it… LOL πŸ˜‰

    Seriously though, this is a lovely dress. Well done for braving the cold weather to show it to us. That is such a bright red and you’re certainly brightening up that country lane. πŸ™‚ I also really like the simple elegance of your watch.

    This is a beautiful red dress. The color is just lovely and it suits you. Love how you kept your accessories simple and let the dress do all the talking. We don’t have any Valentine’s Day planned. The hubs and I never really got into it. We appreciate the thought of love and spending time together but we like it on a daily basis instead of a said holiday. With that said, we will be staying in and enjoying a home cooked meal with a drink or two. πŸ˜€

    Wow! What a colour! I think the cut of this dress is quite perfect too, and for anyone actually close up and chatting with you, the belt-style pattern under your bodice and across your waste really adds heaps. And looking closely, the intricate pattern in your dress is really nice too. Five stars for you and your very lucky man!

    This dress looks so flattering on you! I am about to buy it in the yellow shade and I was wondering what size you purchased yours in because our body types look very similar!

Thanks for your comments =) I read & reply every one =)
