LOVE.

LOVE.

Valentine’s Day is literally around the corner, so I wanted to share one last look inspired by romance and flirtiness.

sweater dress and pumps

This weekend on Chinese New Year, the sun peaked out and it was beautiful. I wore this mauve-coloured sweater dress and pleather peplum belt c/o Nowistyle, along with graphic grey sweater tights from Wonderbra,  leather gloves made in Italy from Marshalls, ankle strap stiletto shoes by Joe Fresh, a fox fur collar by Danier and last, but not least, my new favourite carry-all, the trapeze satchel c/o Nowistyle.

love belt forever 21 detail

To top the look off, and add a romantic touch, I am wearing a thin waistbelt from Forever 21 emblazoned with gold letters spelling, LOVE. No doubt it was inpired by the MOSCHINO gold letter belts, I almost prefer this one because I don’t have a brand name around my waist. I’d rather promote “love” than an Italian fashion brand most famously favoured by the least successful Kardashian. Ringing in under $8, it was a guilt-free way to add a touch of romance and pick up on the other gold details in my look.

3.1 phillip lim pashli satchel

I am in love with this large trapeze satchel that was sent to me by the Japanese fast-fashion brand. The bag had a strong plastic smell at first, but after it got some air, it has become a handy carry-all that can carry all my makeup, notebooks (I’m always taking notes on the go for stories) and snacks. I’ve gotten used to wearing a small bag, but now, I’ve totally fallen in love with this roomy tote. Styled after 3.1 Phillip Lim’s infamous Pashli satchel, it is a modern classic. A perfect (and vegan) 3.1 Phillip Lim satchel replica! The bag can even be extended if you undo the zippers while the gold detailing also add a luxe touch to the fast-fashion bag.

mauve dress and black accessories

Picking up on these gold accents, I’m wearing my new favourite stilettos from Joe Fresh. Featuring a gold metal cap toe and ankle strap, they are trendy and sexy. I can wear any slouchy outfit, throw on this pair of shoes and they instantly glam up my look. A perfect pick at under $20 (and 75 per cent off).

long gloves with bows and fox fur scarf

I’ve been dying to wear my newest winter accessories, but a heavy storm dumped a lot of snow and brought wet weather. My new Italian leather gloves are as soft as butter and fit… well, like a glove. I instantly fell in love with this pair from Marshalls when I saw the darling bows. The feminine detail adds interest to the long gloves, and I love the peekaboo of skin or whatever you’re wearing underneath. My fur collar scarf is from Danier. Made of fox fur, the piece is very warm and practical. I love the soft taupe colour, which goes with every sweater and coat in my wardrobe.

mauve sweater dress and peplum belt

The sweater dress I’m wearing is simple and extremely warm. Perfect for a winter stroll, the dress has a fleece-like fabric and is very comfortable. What I love about this look is the way the pleather peplum belt adds shape and femininity to an otherwise straight-forward bodycon dress. Worn at my natural waist, it highlights my shape and camouflages broader hips. I find peplums are romantic and flirty, a perfect combination a day before Valentine’s day.

fox fur collar and black satchel

I hope you enjoyed my Valentine’s Day themed outfit posts, and whether you wear red, black or a sexy silhouette, you can never go wrong by getting in the spirit with a flirty pair of red lace knickers. Even if you’re single, everyone deserves a little spice (and many sweets) on the 14th of February.
