Valentine’s Day!  I’m such a fool for love…a sucker for chivalrous gestures, rom-coms, Jane Austen novels…you name it.  Tyler & I decided on going to a nice restaurant in The Loop & then onto a show for our special night.  I also previously wore this outfit for a Christmas Party so I love how versatile the pieces are.


For my look, I naturally wanted something really romantic but also timeless as I’m aiming to build a more classic wardrobe.  I found myself most inspired by two leading ladies: Audrey Hepburn & Taylor Swift.  I have at times been told that Audrey & I share the same petite features so I thought it would be fun to really embrace her 50’s style.  On the other hand, love love love the multitude of red lips Taylor has been rocking lately.  “I got that red lip, classic thing that you like.” 😉  She always seems to wear the right shades so I did some research & picked up CoverGirl Hot that she’s been known to sport.  It can be a scary thing trying out your first red lipstick but I’m so glad I did.  Tyler, on the other hand, still disapproves of the messy substance. 😛

Last, I just have to bring attention to the article I had just read in Vogue on the Palais Garnier.  I’ll admit…I was unaware of the palace before but I was blown away flipping through the pages of opulent gold baroque interiors.  I someday hope to visit & to attend a ballet performance.  Little fact: The Phantom of the Opera came about due to events at the palace.  An underground lake was hit during construction which inspired the Phantom’s lair & the grand chandelier actually did fall & kill an audience member.  I think I may just have to watch the movie again now.  Anyway, ballerinas are always breathtaking & the spread in Vogue sparked my imagination.
