Galentine’s with Joanie Clothing

Up until recent years I think it was pretty widely accepted that most people are one of two things: Valentine’s Day enthusiasts, or completely apathetic to the entire thing.

Now, though, there’s a third approach to Valentine’s Day, and I must say, it’s my favourite: Galentine’s Day! As a woman who doesn’t care about the day in a romantic sense but loves to use it as an excuse to get together with my best friend, wear something sexy and luxuriant while consuming a truly indulgent three course meal together, Galentine’s Day is definitely my thing.

Typically I wear all black, not as some sort of anti-romance protest against the idea that I should want to spend the day with a man, but more as the opposite. All black slinky outfits make me feel the most sexy and sassy, and what better way to feel when living it up with one of your most loved companions? Thanks to Joanie Clothing, this year I’ve dreamt up another All Black Ensemble that ticks all my Galentine’s boxes, and would even work for those of you who do want to spend it with your Significant Other.

Valentine’s Outfit Picks

Valentine’s day is still a of couple weeks away, which might seem too soon to some of you to buy your special date outfit already (whether for your partner or a night spent with friends,) but being that we pinups often order our clothes internationally I wanted to get my favourite Valentine’s outfit picks up in time for ladies to get them ordered and delivered internationally. I’ve not only covered both American and English brands, but both ‘spend’ and ‘splurge’ budgets. For the sake of making the budget categorisations easiest I set £45 as the budget option price limit, and the splurge option as £45+. I’ve picked red dresses, pink dresses, and dresses in other colourways or prints (‘I Ain’t No Cliché’) for ladies who want to step out of the usual love colour schemes for the holiday. There’s wiggle and swing dresses covered, plain colours as well as prints and patterns. Continue reading
