On one of our recent perusals around the virtual emporium known as Net-A-Porter, we found plenty of romance inspired items to feast our eyes on. Instead of simply writing a list of things we’d like to receive from our loved ones for Valentine’s Day, we thought we’d have a little fun. Take a look below and see whether you find yourself drawn to the whimsical or the vampish. And be sure to forward this post with a knowing wink and clear instructions about what you’d like from Mr Right!
Well, it wouldn’t be a blog piece without us if we didn’t find something a bit bridal! Choose between the Marique velvet and georgette flower crown headband or its slightly more film noir-ish sister, the Lolita floral embellished headpiece, both by Eugenia Kim.
Do you find yourself lusting after the Charlotte Olympia Love Me heart-appliqued suede pumps? Or will Mr Louboutin remain your one true love with these sexy patent leather sandals?
We reckon the Cutesy Cupids out there will love a splash of Ilia’s Neon Angel whilst the Valentines Vamps will be all about the Blood Roses lipstick from Kevyn Aucoin.
Say it simple or say it bold? Jennifer Meyer’s much imitated but never duplicated mini heart 19-karat gold ring is love in its purest form, whereas the Arme De L’Amour gold-plated chevron ring is a fierce statement of passion.
When it comes to lingerie, your choice of garment is a testimony to your personality. Will you choose Rosamosario’s Amore Senza Confini silk-lace and embroidered tulle chemise with its exquisite etherealness? Or are you going straight for the uncompromisingly sexy Belisa lace-trimmed basque from Agent Provocateur?
Sweaters may not be sexy but they sure can speak your love language! The hearts and stars cashmere jumper from Chinti and Parker is a perfectly sweet sartorial sonnet, whilst their monochrome Love-intarsia sweater is brassy, bold and brilliant.
Finally, when it comes to arm candy you can either go soft and simple withAnya Hindmarch’s I Love You leather pouch in a delightful hot pink, or opt for the sultry satin red clutch from Bottega Veneta with their trademark knot on top which not only screams style but could just be a metaphor for your love.
However you choose to say I Love You this Valentine’s Day, be it cutesy or vampish, make sure you say it in style!
