Christian Audigier has sure captured Valentine in all its beauty with this sexy red dress! What do you think?
Buenas tardes compadres! Your Miss Lopez Language Consultant Victoria Gomez here, enjoying the fruits of a hard labor day, alongside her chocolates which she received from a secret admirer today (whoever you are, gracias, you are the best!).
While Miss Lopez is away on corporate speed dating, I thought I would bring you some fun facts about Valentine’s Day. You know, today is not just a commercial day for chocolate factories and flower shops, nor is it just a time for cute couples to manifest their hapiness to the world (as beautiful as I truly think it is). No, 14th of Februrary or Valentine’s Day is originally an annual commemoration of a Christian Martyr named Valentinus (in Latin) who lived somewhere around 200 A.C, and who was rumoured to have been in love with the prison guard’s daughter. It was however not until the Middle Ages that this day became associated with the theme of Love, and that couples started giving each other chocolates and flowers.
Since then, a lot of things have happened as (Saint) Valentine’s Day has become an internationally acclaimed official holiday for the demostration of love (both intimate and platonic). But how many roses do we cut on this day? And who buys the most gifts, women or men?
Here are 5 fun facts about Valentine’s Day that will share some light on this matter and make you ”love-lier” at the same time:
- 73% of people who buy flowers for Valentine’s Day are men, while only 27 percent are women. (guys do like flowers alright)
- The Italian city of Verona, where Shakespeare’s lovers Romeo and Juliet lived, receives about 1,000 letters addressed to Juliet every Valentine’s Day.
- On Valentine’s Day, the first guy’s name you read in the paper or hear on the TV or radio will be the name of the man you will marry.
- If you see a goldfinch on Valentine’s Day, you will marry a millionaire. (If you see a sparrow on the other hand, the reverse will happen)
- Worldwide, over 50 million roses are given for Valentine’s Day each year.
Sweet loving everyone! La vida es un enamoramiento en si, remember that!;-)
Hello there! Miss Lopez here with my tip nummer 2 about your outfit for your San Valentine date. Myself as I am single, right now I have no plans for San Valentine so let´s see if there are good surprises!
Anyway you can actually choose a more cute style for the day time date or a more glamorous for the night. You choose! If you and your partner have decided to celebrate Valentine’s Day with a daytime appointment with a meal or going to the cinema, my tip is that you can choose a more naïve style, a romantic blend of Lolita and yourself. I love it by the way!
In the firs picture a blouse in pink from Mango and sailor-style jacket with pink ribbon from Kling . Green shoes and socks in crude tone flounce of American Apparel. Cool!
All know for this day lingerie plays an important role so I propose this outfit in white tulle broken. Romantic!
For the great event probably at night on the other hand, I propose a wine-colored dress with asymmetrical draping and black male blazer from Topshop , laced sandals with heels of Zara and handbag of Miu Miu. Nice!
About jewelry, choose a collar with stones to match the dress like this one. Oh my God so nice! I love it too!
Be yourself and dress like the one you want to be. Cute or sensual? You choose and Feelgood!
