The Skinny Confidential talks Valentine's Day.

The Skinny Confidential talks Valentine's Day.

I don’t know about you, but I think Valentine’s Day is fun whether you’re single & flirty or taken & sexy.

Either way it’s the kinda holiday to wear bright pink lipstick, a sassy dress, & a high ponytail.

So duh, I’m in.

These are some of my staples for V-day. All of these cuties are already in my closet/cupboard so I don’t have to spend a dime ( << Michael? You got that covered, right babe? Can’t wait what to see what you have in store!!! ** blushing Emoji x 10 ** (( LOL sending him a gentle reminder! )) ).

Ok, let’s get all lovey-dovey:

♡ number 1: sassy heart bra ( don’t spend 4 million dollars on over-priced bras until you check out Forever 21’s selection. They always get it right ).

♡ number 2: cutie, delicious tea ( looking for a V-day cocktail? I got ya covered. Just check this baby out. These tins are only avail at Target in-store though! ).

♡ number 3: sex kitten red skirt ( everyone needs a skirt like this to whip during any festive holiday. I like this one because it’s priced right & a total staple ).

♡ number 4: floral flats ( I DIED WHEN I FOUND THESE ONLINE. They’re under $25 bucks & soooo damn chic. Perf to celebrate the day of lovaaaaas ).

♡ number 5: hottie red lips ( I just talked about my obsession with Urban Decay’s ‘Bang’ lipstick in my latest YouTube tutorial. It’s no surprise this is one of my favorite colors for a steamy date night.

♡ number 6: little white dress ( it’s all about the little white dress lately. This one hugs my curves in all the right spots. Plus it looks cute from day to night ).

♡ number 7: v-day daytime sweater ( it’s sad how obsessed I am with this sweater!! I DIE FOR IT! Cute, right? ).

♡ number 8: strappy nude heels ( instead of spending 3502598 dollars on high end shoes, check these nudie Steve Maddens out & thank me later. RAWR!

 ♡ number 9: dainty gold rings ( if you know me you know I HEART my dainty gold rings. These are the ones I’ll be rocking for Valentine’s.

What’s your favorite Valentine’s Day staple? I don’t care if you’re single, taken, married, etc. SPILL! Send me any links you guys like…I kinda wanna get my shop on tonight ( or send multiple links to Michael because IT’S VALENTINE’S DAYYYYYYY! ).

  1. LOVE your picks!

    I’m deciding between those strappy Steve Maddens or a high pointed-toe heel:

    Thoughts? Planning on wearing this dress:

    With this lippy:

    Would love to hear what you think!

    xxo, Kristen

    1. I like BOTH!! Such a hard pick : ( I would probably go with the ones you picked out because you can wear them with ANYTHING!! LOVE the lip and dress. So chic.

      The lipstick color is the second one in to the left. It’s the same link you just have to click the different colors. The one I like is called ‘BANG.’ : ) Happy Valentine’s Kristen! xx

  2. Love your picks and your blog. I have those Steve Maddens in the nude and black, they are such a great staple, look good with everything.
    I need that sweater 🙂

  3. I love that you pick affordable items also, and not super expensive things that the normal person can’t afford. Those flats (and nude heels) are gorg.


  4. Bandage dresses! So hawt. French Connection makes amazing versions that are waaaay cheaper than Herve. I have 2, and I love that their sizes are small enough for me (I have a hard time with that). I also got a cheapo hot black sleeveless bandage number from F21 several years ago. Sometimes I even wear a garter belt with stockings underneath for an extra surprise. 🙂 I have this one, and a boatneck that’s sadly no longer made. Tell me it is not the sexiest thing you have ever seen!!! I adore the pink-hued champagne shade.

    P.S. Bloomingdale’s has a coral:
    And Zappo’s has silver:

  5. I love #8! I definitely agree that paying $700+ for sexy heels that have just two thin straps is pretty insane. This is why I have always loved Steve Madden.
