Valentine’s Day is fast approaching and Cupid is dusting down his arrows, ready to spread some L-O-V-E across the world. Maybe you’re currently outfit planning for the big date night your other half has planned. Perhaps you’re both heading away for a spa-breakaway like I did recently. Or, like me, you’re a single pringle and plan on celebrating being a fierce, independent woman with your Galentines. I have teamed up with Femme Luxe Finery to help you with a dress for both eventualities.
When in Doubt, Wear the Red Dress..
First up, I chose this Red Belted Bodycon Dress. I think this would be an absolutely gorgeous option for a Valentine’s dinner with your other half. It’s super sexy yet sophisticated and the red colour is so rich. You have the choice to wear it slightly off the shoulders, like I did. Or it can be worn up a bit higher on the shoulders to create a deep-V neckline.
Femme Luxe have tonnes of bodycon dresses on their website. But this one stands out to me as I love the puff sleeve which is very trendy right now. There’s not much stretch in the material but I find this helps to hug the curves in the right places. It’s a versatile dress that looks just as good on the model, wearing a size 8, as it does on me, in a size 14.
This red bodycon dress is available in UK sizes 6 – 14 and with 6 colour options to choose from. I’m completely blown away by the price also. It’s currently reduced by 51% to just €20.95 so get on this bargain quick gals! To be totally honest, the quality is not compensated for the price either, it’s fantastic.
Dress Up and Grab the Gals for Cocktails…
…in this stunning Emerald One Shoulder Dress. This is a super sexy number, worthy of a night on the town. So get on to your group WhatsApp, round up the girls and head to the most notion-filled Cocktail Bar you can get a table in. In this slinky one shoulder dress, you can dance the night away in comfort. You’re also sure to turn an eye or two!
There are so many ways you could style this one shoulder dress; with nude sandals and gold accessories, as I did. Or go super chic with patent black court heels and a killer clutch bag. There are 7 colours to choose from in this style and again, the size range is from 6 – 14. I find it is a generous fit, because the material is so stretchy. I could go down a size and it would fit like a glove.
The ruched detail on the one shoulder dress is eternally forgiving and there is a waisted belt on it also. I chose to tie it to the back of the dress but you can see how it ties to the front on the Femme Luxe Finery website. Again, I’m in love with how affordable this gúna is also. You can get a massive 54% off it right now, meaning it’s reduced to just €21.95. Honestly girls, if I thought the quality was poor, I would say it straight out, but each dress is so well finished. The material is excellent and I feel super comfortable and confident in this one shoulder dress. It’s not a style I usually try but how could I say no to this beauty?
That’s just a flavour of the styles they have available on Femme Luxe Finery. Make sure to pop on to their website the next time you have an occasion coming up or even if you just want to treat yourself – you know you’re worth it!! The prices are incredible and the standard delivery to Ireland was just shy of a week. Students can nab an extra 10% off, (lucky divils!) and they update the site with newness regularly.
Whatever you plan to do this Valentine’s day, whether you’re married, in a relationship or a single pringle, I hope you enjoy it. Don’t get bogged down with ‘days’ or labels! Spend some time doing something YOU absolutely love this Friday and remember to love yourself first!
In the interest of being fully open & honest here, this is a collab with Femme Luxe Finery. Both dresses were kindly gifted to me by the brand, which I really appreciate. This is not an ad – I haven’t received payment for this blog post. All my thoughts above are 100% my own.
