Eat Pray Wear Love: Valentine's Day: Not Just Another Red or Pink Dress

Valentine's Day: Not Just Another Red or Pink Dress

It's no secret that I'm a sucker for an open back. They add an element of sexy to any look. Today, I'm back with another Valentine's Day look, but this time, I'm steering clear of all things pink and red. I get it, not everyone wants to be covered in color and hearts and bows from head to toe. I totally used to be that girl. As I mentioned before, I've been stepping out of the box lately, and trying outfits I normally wouldn't, but there's something to be said for sticking to your classic style. This dress, is quintessential Leah. 

The long sleeve and rounded neckline make create modesty, but the plunging V along that backline dips low enough to show off your sexy side.  Best of all, there's a hidden bar in the back, so the V rests with structure and maintains its form. The best part of a plain black dress like this, is that it works for so many occasions, and the long sleeves make it work for many seasons here in Colorado.
If you are looking for ways to slowly incorporate color into your wardrobe, especially around holidays like this, start by adding red or pink accessories. A colored clutch (maybe even covered in hearts!) can really pull the look together, and show your love for love-day. If you're comfortable enough, a bold lip can do the same thing, and is definitely my preferred pop of color. 

Do you have any plans for Valentine's Day? What about Galentine's Day? Cupid may have to come visit us in our pjs on sunday, because a day in with my love is sounding best, at this point. We'll see though. Sending hugs and kisses your way! xoxo

  6. Smokin hot, Leah!! Love this dress and how you styled it with that cape. Just stunning. My Valentine's Day plans include trying out the new "singles blizzard" at DQ, putting on my sexiest lingerie, and eating it in bed while watching Breaking Bad or something equally unromantic ;) haha j/k I'm going snowshoeing with an equally single girlfriend.

  35. How to Get Your Ex Back After a Breakup or Divorce.! Am giving this testimony cos am so happy, I want to thank Dr Frank Ojo for the great thing he has done in my life , he brought happiness to my life .! A very big problem occurred in my Marriage seven months ago,between me and my husband .so terrible that he took the case to court for a divorce. he said that he never wanted to stay with me again,and that he didn't love me anymore.So he packed out of the house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get him back,after much begging,but all to no avail.and he confirmed it that he has made his decision,and he never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my husband .So i explained every thing to him,so he told me that the only way i can get my husband back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for him too.So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow his advice. Then he gave me the email address of the spell caster whom he visited. TEMPLEOFLOVEANDPROSPERITY@GMAIL.COM. So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address he gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my husband back the next day. What an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me, and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my husband who didn't call me for the past 7 months, gave me a call to inform me that he was coming back. So Amazing!! So that was how he came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and he apologized for his mistake,and for the pain he caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster. So, i will advice you out there if you have any problem contact Dr Frank Ojo, i give you 100% guarantee that he will help you.. Email Him @: Templeofloveandprosperity@gmail.com .
