This midi dress might just be my outfit for our Valentine’s Day date night with hubby. I love the floral texture on the dress! It “feminizes” the heavy fabric which by the way makes this dress so perfect to wear on a cold February night. I wanted to play up the v-neck cuts both on the front and back with the lace top underneath. The statement belt nicely accentuates the waist, whereas I think that this dress works with a thin belt just as nicely.

By the way, Valentine’s Day! Did you know these facts about the day of romance?

Approximately 150 million Valentine’s Day cards are exchanged annually, making Valentine’s Day the second most popular card-sending holiday after Christmas.

About 8 billion conversation, candy hearts will be produced this year; that’s enough candy to stretch from Rome, Italy to Valentine, Arizona 20 times and back again.

Verona, Italy, receives around 1,000 letters addressed to Juliet (of Shakespeare) every Valentine’s Day. This city is where Shakespeare’s lovers Romeo and Juliet lived.

In Japan men receive more Valentine’s Day gifts than women as a result of a marketing campaign carried out by a famous chocolate manufacturer.

Almost 3% of pet owners (which are around 9 million people) prefer to give Valentine gifts to their pets, as they appear to be more grateful than humans.
