Fanshawe Fashionista: A passion for fashion
Personally, even when I am single, I love dressing up for the occasion. It is the only holiday infused with cheesy passion. It's okay to eat lots of chocolate, and even buy yourself flowers if you need to.
If you are lacking a romantic teammate on this day, get together with your friends, dress your best (armed with sexy red luscious lips of course) and head out to find one. Chances are, you're not the only one feeling sorry for your single self, so hook up with someone cupid-style and make the day count.
If you are in a wonderful, loving relationship like myself, turn it up a notch. I suggest starting from the inside and working your way out. Sexy undergarments are a must, especially on this day. Yeah, they might cost a bit more than the typical, comfy cotton panties but the racier and skimpier, the better. Consider it a great investment — he will be sure to pay you back in either chocolate, roses or if you're really lucky, diamonds; and in that case, spring for sexy new heels too!
Signature Valentine's Day colours are a must, but just remember to wear everything in moderation. If you're going to bust out a cute pink sweater, don't over do it with copious amounts of heart shaped accessories. You don't want to seem like you're trying too hard, but instead that you acknowledge the holiday on the outside, and you're armed and ready with what's under the sweater.
I'm not sure if an opportunity to get racy and lacy and do crazy things with rose pedals and chocolate is what the original Saint Valentine had in mind — I don't think saints can do that kind of stuff — so for all of you traditionalists out there who want to stay wholesome and conservative, try dinner and a movie. But if you want him to remember that night, order take-in and make a movie.
