Caviar Soireé || Valentine's Day with Petrossian



Rendezvous for Two!  

I met my valentine in the park for a fancy Petrossian Caviar soiree!  I would highly suggest this idea as a date option, as there is something so exciting about bringing the highest of opulence to a stunning public arena.  If you live in New York, be sure to pull up your table-for-two to a 1911 Beaux-Arts landmark as we have done. ;)   Your checklist: Ossetra caviar, a gourmet savory, assorted chocolates, and heart-shaped balloons of course!

Red Roses || Valentine's Day with The Pretty Dress Co



Lately I've been struck by the breathtaking beauty of the dead of winter.  I never really realized it before, but there is something alluring about the bare branches all around New York.  They're especially picturesque as a backdrop to one of our many historical fountains, which also holds a mysterious beauty in it's own very still, wintry state.  This scene is made even better with dramatic red roses, like the beautiful print on my new "Sorrento" dress from The Pretty Dress Company.  How perfectly romantic is this design for Valentine's Day?

Daily Commute || TPDC Black Tartan at Municipal Subway



The daily commute looks quite different depending on where you live!  My early adulthood began on the west coast, and I remember the days of sitting in car traffic.  Now, I squeeze into crowded trains.  Neither is exceptionally pleasant, but at least the trains cover a lot of miles in a very short amount of time... and the subway stations are often found beneath beautiful historical buildings such as this!

I would consider The Pretty Dress Company's Hourglass Tartan dress to be the perfect piece for everyday glamour.  You can style it very simply or more accessorized, and is a joy to wear pretty much anywhere... simply chic!
