A lot of my friends seem to ask me: "What is all the fuss about valentines day?" Most of them don't see them don't see the point in it or use the same excuse: "Why use one day of the year to show someone you love them? It should be all year round." My answer is simple - I find Valentines day fun, exciting and really, a chance to dress up...and I'm not speaking kinky. I'm an old school romantic. I believe in sending love letters regularly, saying I love you before hanging up the phone, kissing in the streets and doing all the things that most people seem to moan about. Valentines day isn't an excuse to say I love you, we say that enough already, but it's an excuse to pretend you have only just started dating and you have the puppy love feeling all over again. If you could go back to your first date, would you change the outfit you was wearing? Have a different hair colour? In the image above, I have compiled my perfect Valentines outfit. Due to a spending ban, unfortunately I wont be buying anything, but a girl can definitely dream.

1: The Dress
Figure enhancing, cleavage exposing and pin up girl-esque, this dress is simply to die for. I love the way the dress pattern focuses on the slimmest part of your stomach, whilst the horizontal lines emphasize those curves.
Available from: needthatstyle.com £99

2: Kandee Shoes
These red and gold Cherry lace Kandees will add an elegant touch to the outfit and a small bit of sparkle. You can't go wrong with a pair of trust Kandees - from my own personal experience, they are comfortable, reliable and make your legs look fierce. I've been longing for those shoes for so long, if only the shoe fairies would come visit me sometime soon.

3: The Necklace
The dress and shoes have such a vintage feel, so it would only be right to team the outfit up with a wonderful vintage style necklace. This Zara Taylor design is classic, sophisticated and would go with any outfit. Added to this dress, it would evoke a sense of old Hollywood glamour and I'm sure Liz Taylor herself would have been happy to wear such an elegant neck chain. The best thing about this item is the fabulously low price of £20.

4: The Clutch
At £35 this Aldo Gooder Jewelled Box Clutch bag is the perfect finishing touch to the outfit. The gold embellishments tie in nicely with the gold on the shoes, the necklace and goes fabulously with the red dress. The cream colour is subtle and does not overpower the outfit. I think the clutch is very charming, feminine and something that I would love to own. The nude colour would go with so many different outfits for many different occasions.
