Let me paint a picture for you. At around noon on Wednesday, February 12th, the bottom falls out of the sky and in less than 2 hours, the ground is completely covered in snow. With sub-freezing temperatures, closed businesses, countless winter weather horror stories on the news, the possibility of following through on Valentine's day plans (dinner and a movie) were bleak. On Thursday evening, a young, stylish couple head out to test out the road conditions and pick up some snacks, only to see that most grocery stores and even shopping-mecca Target (!) were still closed. Luckily they found one open grocery store and made the decision to pick up a few items for an at-home V-Day celebration-- wine, chocolate cake, dinner, and chocolate-dipped strawberries. Reservations are postponed, perfectly styled outfits are put back into the closet, and the YouTube searches for V-Day appropriate make-up looks are aborted. Valentine's Day comes, and while there is still snow on the ground, the weather takes an unexpected change for the better. By early afternoon, the sun is shining brightly and temperatures are pushing 60 degrees. What? Needless to say, by Saturday everything was back to normal and despite delaying their official Valentine's date plans for a week, the couple were pressed to leave the house...which brings me to my OOTD:
This was not the original outfit I had planned, but with a change in plans comes a change in style. I had invisioned a romantic, vintage-inspired look for dinner, but an impromptu trip to the bar provided an opportunity to serve bombshell fierceness and try out this dark Wet-N-Wild lipstick in "Cherry Bomb."
