If there’s one thing I’ve learnt about this very commercialised day, it’s that it’s no use for us single ladies to be resentful; I mean, why waste our energy on that when we can just treat ourselves to the things we really love, like a bit of Dolce and Valentino? (Especially Valentino because the name is just really suited to the cause)
This year though, I’ve gone the step further and actually got myself a hot date.
Yep, that’s right. This V-day I’ll be rolling in gifts and enjoying a nice meal with someone I love.
I mean, not romantically though.
Valentine’s day is a day to celebrate love, and although traditionally people celebrate courtly love, that doesn’t mean you can’t show your love for your family or friends, right?
So this year, my valentine is my niece. Throughout our whole lives we’ve lived so far away from each other, and once every year or so, one of us would make the trip interstate to see each other, and during those short few days, we’d have to re-connect and get to know each other again. Now, she has finally moved to Melbourne and we’re getting to know each other properly; she’s like my fourth sister and I love her.
So, if you’re like me and don’t normally give two shits about Valentine’s Day, maybe this year you should just embrace the day and show the people that you love how you feel.
Then again, though, there’s no shame in revelling in the material things you love too, so feel free to tick something off of my LUST LIST
“Who would not be flattered to have an entire Jay-Z track named after them? I mean, come on, it’s pretty rare that something like that happens,”
“It’s a kind of validation of one’s work, as it means that one has really penetrated and made an impact on popular culture.”

This collection is based solely on what I have put together from either experience or based on something that I would love to wear and want to persevere to buy for myself! These are probably some of my best sets to date!
Turn super casual into super chic with t-shirt dresses and denim jackets!
I actually love this look, this is something you can wear out on a lunch date and even turn it into a ‘i’m going to work but i’m going to look fabulous’ type of outfit!
Mixing things like the dresse’s jersey material with a denim jacket, with classy sunglasses, bags and jewellery, you can make a statement, which would probably be ‘I look fab and i’m really comfortable, you mad?’
Finish off the look with a expounding shade of lipstick and a show-stopper necklace and ta-da! You have turned something so simple into something incredibly stylish!
