Valentine's Day - Pinup Style

Oh, Valentine's Day. One of the most commercialised holidays known to the west. And yet, we can't resist you!

My husband and I have a routine when we go out on dates - we get delicious noms at Grill'd, we see a movie, and then we go home. We love that routine, and it works perfectly for us. However, Valentine's Day is normally the day we break out of our mould and do something different. It gives me the chance to don my sexiest dress and be properly wined and dined and romanced, and it gives him a chance to, well, enjoy the fabulous lingerie I pick out to wear for him. Boom. Win win. So, even though we try our best to fight normalcy, Valentine's Day is a holiday that we wholeheartedly embrace.

I managed to get my outfit sorted nice and early this year. I scored an amazing deal on two Wheels and Dollbaby dresses, which has excited me to no end. I can't find this one on their website anymore, but swap and sell groups and ebay always have past collections floating around.






I don't know about you, but wholehearted embrace calls for some fabulous outfits, so here are the brands that I am lusting after at the moment:
  
There is so much from Micheline Pitt's Vixen line that would go well for Valentine's Day, but if I had to choose just one, it would be the Troublemaker Dress in red. Don't take my word for it though - have a browse yourself! Check it out here. 


What Katie Did is already dedicated to pretty, classic lingerie, so what better place to look for a Valentine's Day after outfit than here? The Ruby set is my favourite, but you can browse several other options. Check it out here.




Pinup Girl Clothing has a whole "Oh La La" section up at the moment, dedicated to naughty things for Valentines Day. The pearl handcuffs are particularly adorable. Check it out here.


They also have a whole range of Valentine's Day inspired outfits in their Coming Soon section, with my personal favourite being the Cherie Dress. So be sure to keep an eye on their Coming Soon section. Check it out here.


If you are in Australia, Bras n Things has whipped up some very sexy lingerie options. I'm actually just going to put a picture of the back of the one I favour (and maybe bought, haha), because I am well aware my parents read my blog from time to time. Just keeping it respectful like only a southern girl can. There's matching panties too, and they are even better. There's a whole section dedicated to Valentine's Day lingerie. Check it out here.


Even naughtier is Honey Birdette - but they always have a vast array of things to spice up. This gorgeous red "dress" is my favourite, but their whole website is full of pretty temptations. Check it out here.

Doll Deluxe has several pretty options for Valentine's Day, including this "Lover" Top that they designed just for the day. Other options include their wiggle dresses in everything from leopard print to black satin. Check it out here. 

 If you had to choose one stop for Valentine's Day accessories, I would make it Unique Vintage. They have a whole section for Valentine's Day outfits too. Check it out here. 


 Whatever your plans are - going all out or keeping it low key at home - make sure you pick something to wear that will astound your partner. And if you're single? For heaven's sake, put on something sexy anyway! Go out with your girlfriends for a Galentine's day or night, and have some champagne.
