Get your Valentine’s Day on with these love-inspired fashion items

I must admit that it is somewhat odd that I chose to write about anything related to Valentine’s Day. When most people think of the “holiday of love,” images of delicate, pink, paper heart doilies often come to mind.  Anyone who knows me well, knows that I have a  personal dislike of light pink, hearts, bows, and ruffles (among any other girly imagery you can conjure up).

With that said, I am all about a holiday that can beckon a box of chocolate covered strawberries (preferably from Romolo chocolates) into my belly. So I kept an entirely open mind when I went on a hunt for some fun, fashionable, (and sometimes flirty), V-Day purchases.

So whether you’re shopping for your BFF, love of your life, or yourself, I hope you come across something on my list that makes your heart skip a beat.
