Dresses For Valentine's Day

Obviously, people who have dates tonight should already have their outfits all planned out. But hey, I'll use any opportunity to ooh and ahh at pretty dresses. Here are a bunch of dresses I love and at least one should suit your different personalities, (unless we have very different taste; you're very quirky, hard to please, or very slutty.)

If you're a very simple girl and your date is during daytime, or you just like being casual, this tie-back dresses by Lux (from Urban Outfitters) is for you.

Since it is winter, long-sleeved dresses would be a good choice. Here are two classic LBDs -I really like the one by Marios Schwab for Top Shop (left), and the one on the right (by Top Shop) is just really nice and simple.

V-neck, empire-ish dresses are def the fun and sexy way to go. Go for a sophisticated one by Laundry by Sheli Segal (left) or go for a shocking pink one by Badgley Mischka (right).

Cute cocktail dresses, both by Mara Hoffman. Personally I like the black dress better -it's simple in a not-too-boring-way, young and can totally be reused in the future. But the red bubble dress is more suitable for semi-formal dinners.

If you want something pretty and delicate-looking, go for something like the Sue Wong dress (left) here. If you want something sleek and contemporary, I love this Graham & Spencer silk jersey dress (right).

And of course we have the lovely wrapdresses, which Lorelai wears all the time in Gilmore Girls. The dress on the left is by Diane von Furstenburg. For something less, err, wrapped up, this Catherine Malandrino bustier dress (right) is sexy without being trashy.

And finally, onto the expensive dresses. I absolutely love this version of the LBD by Marc Jacobs. It's fashionable, chic and flattering on the body, plus think of all those occasions you can wear it to. And that Vera Wang Lavender dress (right) is just divine. We can dream, can't we?

And yes, it is more than ok not to wear a dress to your date. Afterall, we are in the 21st century. Happy Valentine's Day people!

I am loving the Mara Hoffman black dress with the grey tights. It looks sooo cute!

And the Marc Jacobs LBD is definitely something different. Very chic.

The Vera Wang dress is killer. Sexy but not trying too hard.

I chose to boycott the holiday and wear all black: http://gogoglamour.blogspot.com.

I've been lurking around your blog forever, but finally decided it was time to post.

Love love love your taste in dresses. I could use some fashion advice. I need a great feminine dress that is casual for a high-stakes date. New boyfriend, ya know? We are going to see a band, so I don't want to be wearing a cocktail ensemble though. Cool, casual, sexy not slutty. Any links to ideas would be welcome!!

All women have one thing in common and that is they all want to look good and feel good about their appearance, they all love to be admired and complemented on the way they look, I tell you the fashion dresses, clothes people chose to wear to this event amazed me. Out of the two hundred people that were in attendance about half were appropriately dressed for the occasion. http://new-fashion-designers-current-trends.blogspot.com
