I love Valentine's Day for two reasons: it celebrates my favorite color combo, red and pink, and makes ample use of my favorite shape, hearts, duh. Once it's over, all that red and pink heart-filled stuff goes on clearance, and I go shopping. It's also a great time, no matter what your relationship status, to pamper the hell out of yourself. Done and Done.
Despite my love of red and pink this February I seem to be craving bits of blue (a rarity for me), like the black and denim Blank NYC jacket I tried on over the weekend and can't stop thinking about (picture does it no justice, seriously). I have been obsessed with the bkr bottles ever since my best friend got one for Christmas (hey Marie and Hillary), and love this sea glass colored one not just for its color but that it packs a dual-philanthropic punch. Of course, I couldn't resist a few Valentine's Day goodies as well, hello cashmere tap pants in ballerina pink!
