Valentine Empire

I never have been one to get into Valentine’s Day. My relationships never aligned with the holiday until I was 24 and even then, I was not very spirited. Even after the first two years of our relationship, of which my husband and I were long distance, Valentine’s Day has not been a priority. Our respective office hours tend to run later and with the holiday on a weekday, who has time?



I bought this dress at the beginning of this past autumn. It is also available in black and lilac and looking back, I wish I had purchased the latter color for spring as well. The dress comes in tall. #rejoice

The cardigan is from the L’Wren Scott x Banana Republic collaboration of 2013. It, too, was offered in tall, likely because L’Wren (RIP) was a fellow tall female. Along with the rich purple, the tall sequin cardigan came in red. I bought both, as well as three of the dresses and a scarf from the collection. Despite how long I have had the items, I still refuse to give away or sell any of them; they are just too darn classic.
