Valentine’s Day can be such a cliche. Red roses should be exiled to The Bachelor and chocolates are more cheesy than sweet. Being that this holiday is a double whammy for me, it’s also my bday!, I’ve culled together the best gifts to give. I’ve had plenty of years of experience with this, so have no fear, there will be no heart-shaped necklaces, earrings or bracelets here.
1. Madewell V-Neck (there’s something sexy about a simple T) / 2. Amber Sceats Roller Earrings / 3. Janessa Leone Amelia hat (I saw this hat in a boutique and fell in love) / 4. Karen Walker Number One Crazy Tort Sunglasses / 5. J. Crew Slim Broken-In Boyfriend Jean in Michel Wash / 6. Aerin Waterlily Sun Perfume / 7. Jonathan Adler Victorian Love Needlepoint Throw Pillow / 8. Art & Sole by Jane Weitzman (it’s the key to a shoe addict’s soul) / 9. Fifty Shades of Grey Inspired Lingerie by Cosmopolitan Lingerie Exclusively at JCPenney (I couldn’t resist sharing that JCPenney has created an intimates collection based on the movie, which comes out Feb. 13th. P.S. If you’re a 50 Shades fan, who isn’t?!, check out this makeup).
P.P.S. If you’re looking for nail inspiration, I love this manicure. It’s edgy, sweet, and perfect for the holiday.
