Valentine’s Day. It’s essentially a capitalist ploy to sell thousands of Hershey’s Kisses (for drowning your sorrows or just blessin’ your boo). My general thoughts are: it’s a very ridiculous day for everyone, but I like telling people that I love them & I am a sucker for any sort of themed dressing. I’m not sure why, but I love the “challenge” of dressing thematically for any given holiday. This year it won’t be as literal as it’s been in years past (see: Cupid’s arrow through my head) but I’m jonesing for several of these Cupid-esque pieces. FYI: they’d be cute on you any day of the year.
Um… because plaid? Whether it’s a solo V-day, a party with pals or some sort of romantic soiree with a lover (or lovers), I’m pressed to find an occasion where plaid is not apropo. If plaid isn’t appropriate for Valentine’s, I don’t want any part in it.
This is not for the faint of heart. Sweeter than sweet, this co-ord set is absolutely on brand for Cupid Fanatics. Sweet-tarts not included.
Along the lines of Kaelyn’s palazzo love, I’m leaning towards a more relaxed leg this spring. Polka dot culottes are both fun to say and fun to wear, Valentine’s or not.
I love novelty socks. Like, a lot. So, these really get me going. You could wear them with anything!
These are gratuitous, a touch ludicrous even, but if matching phone cases is a thing that you and your partners are into, go for it. Even if it’s just you and your 3 iPhones.
I have a thing for frivolous accessories and these definitely fit the bill. Oh the places we’ll go!
I like milk and cookies. I like my crush. I definitely
like want this tee.
I don’t have a real reason for including this except that it is a “Britney Spears” bra and that makes me think that it will come with an accompanying snake. I cannot confirm or deny whether it comes with a snake. I still love Britney.
There you have it kids: a bevy of V-Day goodies to bookmark for you or your bae. Excuse me while I order some nipple tassels!
Oh Lydia, were I brave enough to rock that two piece outfit. Also I’m fully with you on embracing the challenge of themed dressing. Love a good themed holiday.
I’m a big fan of ASOS in general, and these are all basically the cutest. Those phone cases, oh dear.
“I’m pressed to find an occasion where plaid is not apropo”
the socks! i love silly socks. and also all of this.
Wait does this mean Autostraddle has an ASOS affiliate now? Because I already give a disturbing amount of money to them… Might as well funnel some your way!
