This time tomorrow...

I'm actually referring to the Kinks song that is stuck in my head right now--I'm not that cheesy!

Or am I? Because this time tomorrow, what I am excited about is going out to my boyf's and my "place," sneaking a little wine with my saag paneer, and shopping for turtles, while wearing one of my absolute favorite dresses.

I think I must be a huge fan of necklines. This one features a tulle detail that made me think of Beauty and The Beast. I was sold.


Now, in no way do I want to exclude the Valentineless, there are so many fun things to do when you are single! I recommend throwing an Anti-Valentine party, which I did last year, or having a date with your closest friends, or watching Annie Hall by yourself because it's the best romantic comedy ever for the romantically ambivalent. So what are you doing? And almost as importantly, what are you wearing?

Oooooh I like the dress and shoes. I'm staying in with my friend for Valentine's day and we're having a Project Runway marathon :]

Joanna Goddard said...

yes, my friend and i were just talking about how annie hall is always billed as a date movie but actually it's pretty anti-romance. they are basically broken up or in the process of breaking up through the whole movie. i love it, though!

ps. SUCH a pretty dress and neckline.

Jill said...

I am probably as boring as they get, because I will be spending V-day, working to finish before deadlines. I have no clue what I'm wearing but I will try to incorporate some pink or red.

Also I'm glad you liked Beckerman, and that you have somewhere nearby to purchase their items. I hope it's not too expensive because the prices weren't listed on the site.

Jelenie said...

Love those shoes and the pink on the dress is perfect.

My bf and I will just have dinner at home tonight and probably watch Jumper. We're saving the special dinner on some other night when it's not too busy. Have a happy V-day!

enc said...

You're going to look like a sweetheart! My plans for tomorrow are so boring, I'll spare you the eye-glazing tale.

Have fun with your boyfriend!

I love that song, and every time I am about to enter a new country or a new city here in Europe I play that song!!!

the iron chic said...

I'll wear something that a baby can't destroy.
My boy is away so I'll be hangin' with my niece and nephew...

Season 1 of Dexter with the flu in full force here. Alternatively, if I decide to personify a cliche, then it'll be a bottle of cheap wine and bridget jones.

Isabel said...

Have a sweet V-day! I like the concept of an anti-Valentine's day, but I am too in love to piss on romance for one day.

Wendy said...

Cute! I love the dress, such a sweet color and neckline details. I don't have anything planned for tomorrow, but I have a feeling the boyfriend will do a surprise.

amanda said...

Mmm... saag paneer.

My boy and I were planning on at least going out to dinner -- sadly, no Indian where we are -- but now it looks like I'm going spend the night studying.

Natasha said...

That dress is so lovely! Have a great time.

My boy has to work, so I am actually going out with my old roommate whose boyfriend goes to another school.

Actually, the best Valentine's Day I ever had was a few years ago when several single friends and I went out dressed to the nines and went out to dinner.

Secretista said...

I'll probably be doing lots and lots of work. This spring semester is jammed packed with so much! I though about calling a dinner with my new close friends on campus, but why do that when I would rather binge on chocolate while I read about modern chinese literature! woooooo!

Have fun with your beau. Don't be too naughty ;].

Thea Orange said...

I will be in a bikini in the Maldives with a Long Island ice tea and hanging out with a very handsome man, the love of my life perhaps. Or if that doesn't work out Annie Hall and PJs. Have a lovely evening in your beautiful dress.

Tru said...

going out to dinner with my bf...wearing a red mini dresss, black tights and black flats thought I'd love to wear my tulle skirt but I'm going straight from class and don't have time to change

Miss Woo said...

The dress is so pretty in pink! Gorgeous. I might just paint my nails pink today as a brief celebration..

Imelda said...

That dress is super cute!

LBIC said...

AsianCajuns said...

I love that dress - it's perfect for valentine's.

Unfortunately I'm in bed sick, but I'm wearing a pink turtleneck and hot pink sweatpants to kind of celebrate the day. My bf is going to come over a make me some chicken soup!

Cee-Cee said...

great outfit combination..:)

The Clothes Horse said...

That dress and those shoes, so perfect. I adore Annie Hall. Have you seen "Everyone Says I Love You" by Woody Allen, a really great movie for V-day (or any day).

jayne said...

oo sounds fun!


like your annie hall idea hehe

well the seniors handed out valentines all day and i basically ate my bodyweight in candy, i still manged to fit into my red skinny jeans and black blazer

Belle said...

i had a predictably uneventful Valentines Day--I got a bunch of carnations from guys at my school and chocolate at my doorstep from a secret admirer and apparently $50 from one of my more persistent courters....so yes. I ended up looking like an asian hippy with all the carnations because I put some in my hair.

That dress is adorable, it does remind me of a disney princess. I loved Anastasia the most (maybe because the true story is so dark.) I hope you had a good VDay!

Debbie Shiamay said...

The dress looks sweeat and cute. Totally love that shade of pink.

bronwyn said...

The dress looks beautiful, I also very much like the outfit below - nice wardrobe mixing!

Aisha said...

Hope you had a great time with your boyfriend!

I love the dress, it really looks like the Beauty's one!

Jello on Springs said...

Such a pretty dress! And I did nothing for V-Day, went to school and overheard other peoples plans, how sad.

In Yr Fshn said...

I wore this adorable cranberry hued mitten dress by alula with a pair of tan wedges. And I had a nerve wracking meeting with my new boss, so by the time BF and I were gonna settle in for a romantic night, all I could do was beg for take out sushi and put on flannel PJs!

In Yr Fshn said...

And of course I cut myself off here! I love your dress, very cute sweetheart style neckline! (Did you know that is the most universally flattering neckline? Why are more pieces of clothing not with this?)

dusk&summer said...

That dress is fantastic!

N/OutofFashion said...

I LOVED the Alice books.

AFitz said...

Omigosh.
I was just lurking random blogs when I saw the title of this post and got so excited. That Kinks song has been on repeat on my ipod for the last month straight, no joke. Have you seen the Darjeeling Limited yet? Go watch it if you haven't.
And I love Annie Hall.

Nadine said...

Great dress - and even greater shoes!

Unwise Pedestrian said...

I love those flats!
