I’ve never been a huge Valentine’s Day person as I’ve mentioned here before. BUT there are some things about Valentine’s Day that I really love. I like red, arrows, candy hearts, chocolate, kitschy decorations, cinnamon hearts, vintage Valentine’s Day cards, not vintage Valentine’s Day cards, cupids, anatomical hearts, regular hearts and the letter V in general.
That pretty much just leaves out red roses and slutty underwear made out of unnatural fibres.
I’ve gathered up a few things that I think you should think about buying now if you plan to have them delivered to either yourself or your loved one, or yourself … by February 14th.
Starting with this absolutely great stitched, vintage inspired Valentine’s Day card.

Nothing says Happy Valentine’s Day to ME like a pair of red, gently worn, size 8.5 genuine,
CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN heels.
