When it comes to dressing for the most tender of holidays, I like to wear black. Don't get me wrong, I'm plenty romantic and have the truest of love in my life, but black is just the best for evening dates. Also, this time of year doesn't inspire a lot of color. Chic and classic and easy to dress up or down, black does the trick. For Valentine's Day, I love a simple and flirty dress—preferably one with sleeves, given the horrendous winter we're having! Paired with a lively clutch and well-fitted motorcycle jacket, a black dress makes me feel like myself, but dressed up and grown up! My husband Curtis and I have been married for ten years. We're usually very casual for holidays, but this year we're planning on a lovely dinner out to commemorate a decade's worth of loyal valentine-ing.
