A classic black dress is the obvious choice for a Valentine’s Day outfit, some might say a cliche even, but the LBD will never let you down. This Clements en August dress is a little bit different in that it has an unusual style of belt…it has those plastic clips that you find on backpacks and child seats – quirky huh? The belt feeds through loops on the drapey section to keep it in place. I bought the dress a few years ago in one of the Outnet’s legendary flash sales, which is where I also scored the Charlotte Olympia heels (although not at the same time). The heels are called “Wild at Heart” which makes me love them even more! They are perfect for Valentine’s Day, not just because they are so gorgeous, but because by the end of the evening you’ll want to be swept off your feet…these shoes may look pretty but they are definitely not for walking in!
I don’t wear big heels very often these days, but I’ll make an exception for shoes this beautiful every once in a while. I’d normally restrict myself to just one statement piece in an outfit but as it’s Valentine’s Day I’m pulling out all the stops and wearing my Angel Jackson bag. I love the bright colours and the chic chain handle!
