Valentine's Day 2012. =)

Hi Girls. So this is the month I promised myself I would blog every day but what do you know, my lap-top decided to break on me. =P Technically the lap-top is not broken (thankfully), it is just the charger. We ordered a new one and should get it by Thursday at the latest. Until then I have been and will still use my work computer (shshh... don't tell) to give you some new posts and hopefully new outfits worth looking at.

I know you "were dying to see" what I wore this year for Valentine's Day. After all, during an earlier post last week I mentioned a certain pale pink mini-dress. So, today here you have my Valentine's Day outfit in all its glory. =) It is one of the fewest Valentines I did not wear Red (so expected and also SO MY COLOR!!) However I proceeded wearing something Red for the next 3 days in a row. I guess I celebrated Valentine's all week long. LOL And speaking of the day of Love, I received a gorgeous silver & pearl necklace (you will see in future posts) as well as a beautiful bouquet of flowers featuring 10 perfect red roses, one perfect white rose, some lilacs, some greenery and some baby breaths. =) I love My Man and he loves me too. Doesn't he look elegant and sharp, below, as well?!

So, the two of us met another couple (friends of ours) to have a fabulous 5-course dinner at a fancy Steakhouse Restaurant. Dinner was great but the dessert was greater: My Favorite Creme Caramel. The company however was THE GREATEST! Below in the photo you will see my tall and beautiful friend in her elegant Valentine's Day wear, as well.
Satin-Silk, Soft Baby Pink Layered Dress with Lace Inserts: Armani X.
Python-Print Purple, Red, Fuschia & Orange Clutch: Nine West.
Violet, Suede, T-Strap Mary Jane Wedges: Old Navy (they look incredible and quite expensive for Old Navy.)
Hot Pink Flower Pin for My Hair: Fred's Jewelry.
Long Dangly Earrings w/ Orange, Red, Yellow & Purple Stones: A Gift to Myself for Valentine's Day.
Double-Breasted, 3/4 Length, Gray Wool Coat: Bebe.
Soft Pink, Wool Scarf: A Boutique in Tirana.

My Friend's Outfit:
Navy, Banded, Short, One-Shouldered, Cocktail Dress: Dress Barn.
Navy Shrug: Purchased in Tirana, Albania.
Black Patent Leather Pumps: Target.
Silver Necklace & Matching Earrings w/ small Circle Iridescent Stones: Gifted to Her from Me for Valentine's Day (by Fred's Jewelry.)

P.S. As you can tell besides the fact that the four of us had a great time, the place was so pretty too. This lovely restaurant is inside a gorgeous place very well-known in Tirana called "Tajvani". They have another restaurant there too (Italian), a beautiful large bar-cafe, a night lounge, a huge bowling area, a casino, as well as beautiful stairs surrounded by many pieces of art among other pretty things.
