How do you usually celebrate Valentine’s Day? For us it’s mostly a low-key affair of a dinner-out at our favourite Greek restaurant and a chilly walk back home. Sometimes, if we feel adventurous, we stop somewhere for an extra glass of wine, or just rush home to enjoy the rest of the night chatting away about old times and listening to Miles Davis on vinyl.
The one special thing I do every single Valentine’s Day is treat Balazs to a box of his favourite handmade chocolates, and I order a new set of saucy underwear for myself. Years ago, I realised that wearing fancy knickers makes me feel foxy even if I have chocolate smudges all over my dress. So nowadays, I usually opt for beautifully understated dresses and pair them up with something special underneath. Try it! Fancy intimates are like a secret weapon that only you know about…
Anyway, since many of you asked about my usual (go-to) dinner-date look, here it is:
Flapper-style black dress - H&M's tights with tiny hearts - Comfy flats (mine are from Dune London) - Pink lips and Rosy cheeks with the help of MAC's 'well dressed' blush - My go-to triangle and dot necklace - My newest crush, Panty by Post French undies: Santolina and Sinfully Yours. You can order just one pair or treat yourself to an underwear mail for 3, 6 or 12 months. Brilliant!
P.S: The perfect Valentine's Day hairdo.
P.P.S: Coeur a la crème = yummy!
