My Perfect Valentine's Day Dress

It's Valentine's Day, the perfect excuse to wear red or pink (or both) and shower your loved ones with kisses. Chapin and the pugs will surely be getting a lot of attention tonight.

I am just a little in love with today's dress. It's not only the perfect Valentine's Day dress, but it has so many of my favorites features:

  1. Puffed sleeves
  2. Nipped in waist accented by a belt
  3. Square neckline
  4. Fun polka dot pattern

Outfit Details

DressRebecca Vallance Midnight Kiss Midi Dress

I'm wearing my first dress from the Rebecca Vallance brand. It's not an American brand, so be careful with the sizing. I'm wearing a Size 6, which is a US Size 2. Many European brands run small, so I was worried about the dress not fitting, but it's pretty perfect. 

You can find the dress on the Rebecca Vallance website and the My Theresa website.

The dress comes in other versions as well. There is a version that I would not wear to work and a long sleeved version with a shorter and tighter skirt and a deep v-neck. I felt the version I chose, the midi-dress, could work for a variety of occasions and would not make me feel uncomfortable. 

I really love the belt on this dress and I'm excited that belted dresses seem to be making a comeback. They were heavily featured in Carolina Herrera's recent runway show (2023 Fall Ready to Wear), for example. I was in awe of that collection.
