My last look inspired by Valentine's Day. This one is a bit more edgy, but still girly with the pink top. I purchased this skirt the other day at our local Salvation army for only 4 bucks. I loved that the stripes were vertical at the top for a slimming effect and  horizontal at the bottom to make it more visually interesting. I can totally see myself wearing this skirt with a graphic tee and a pair of bright red pumps, or a simple silky black tank top, and strappy gold heels. Topped off with a red lip of course. I love when I find a piece of clothing at the thrift store and it becomes a staple in my closet. 

This Valentine's look would be perfect for a dinner in the city. I actually envisioned my self wearing this in New York right now for New York Fashion Week. I called it my New York look. Dramatic and chic all in one :)

I hope you all have an amazing Valentine's day! Have fun with whoever you are spending it with! And I hope these Valentine's looks have inspired you to look fab tonight!
