Let’s celebrate love and friendship every day!

Valentine's Day is just another day to celebrate love. Love comes in many forms, shapes, and opportunities 365 days a year, 24/7. The red hearts make us feel like love and happiness is all around, but Valentine's Day should be every day! Every day you should show your love and appreciation for each other in some way. An extra-long hug, a cup of tea/coffee, a smile, a phone call to say "I love you"… the list is endless. These little things go a long way and usually make your heart smile. That's how you keep romance alive. And, you should wear more than often the color of love: RED! Red is the colour of a heart & also roses - it signifies warmth & love. Throughout history, red has been the color of passion and romance. Red lips and blushed cheeks stimulate admiration and arousal. A red dress attracts attention and captures the imagination. 

I'm personally wearing very often red: earrings, dresses, cardigans, lipsticks, my nails are usually red and I love to add an interesting RED hat/fascinator to the whole outfit.

For the first outfit I decided to wear the Hearted-Cherry Fascinator by Jazzafine Pieces Full of Verve from Germany.

Hairstyle/Make-up by me

Yummy! And opulent ... A heart-shaped hat with love Allerlei: cherries, various springs in leaf green and poppy red, a double velvet bow from orig. Velvet ribbon from the 1960's.
A Fascinator, which could be premiered on Valentine's Day, but this reminds you every day or for other special occasions at one of the finest and most important things in life ...

The next one headpiece is called: Chapeaulina!

The names of the ChapeauLinas are the songs of Billie Holiday. And this here is "big stuff": Pure passion - Night Black and Burgundy Red. A lush fabric rose with a freshwater pearl in the middle, with elegant fine feathers. 
Fine veil - birdcage - in black, with dots - on a black flat fascinator. Attachment with comb.

And...the last one is Valentins Camelia Set 3 Roses called "Billies goes Jazzafine":

Valentine's Edition: made from special satin! 

The flowers of Billie Holiday in juicy colors! 

Delicate & very elegant. Opulent flowers in hair - beautiful in the bun or loose hair. The camellia, Billie Hoidays wore it so often.

As simple as it is, this flower suits almost all the dresses - whether tulle, lace, crepe or satin.

It is a masterpiece in every sense of the word; it takes hours to produce the intricate detail of this exclusive stocking. The Black welt has a fine Ivory Picot around the top, the black foot and diamond backseam contrast with Beige or Grey leg made of 15 denier ultra sheer nylon - Add our super soft finish and Dita's world famous logo and you have a fully fashioned stocking like no other.

I've been wearing these stockings all day and they haven't fallen down, laddered or disappointed me in anyway. Fully fashioned nylons are so sensual.

 I wear vintage, fully fashioned, seamed stockings every single day. I usually wear an open bottom girdle to hold them up but if I'm dressing more casual, I'll wear a garter belt instead. For me, though, "casual" means a summer dress or skirt and blouse.

When you want to look sexy - or feel sexy - I think stockings add just that right touch...

3rd stockings: Dita Glamour French Heel

This stocking is Dita's personal favorite and she wears this style at every opportunity. The Dita Glamour, with its contrasting colors, makes this Full Fashion stocking truly .. Glamorous! The Welt and foot are black with either a grey leg or beige leg. The French Heel treatment and Dita imprint on the welt add to the authentic nostalgic details.
