Valentine's Day Styling for the Northern Hemisphere

Valentine's Day is almost upon us!  Did it sneak up on you like it did for me?  Well we don't have all the time in the world to sew up Valentine's Day outfits, but thanks to polyvore a girl can have a fun time making collages of them. I've taken the liberty of designing 4 ensembles around the Bluegingerdoll patterns for those of us in the middle of winter.  

Ensemble #1 - Flower Garden Billie Jean.  

Billie Jean is a classic design and would look smashing sewn up as the quintessential little black dress.  For Valentines day pair it with a fun floral cardigan and hair band.  Finish off with a little pink lippy and you're ready for that special dinner date.

Ensemble #2 - Sweetly Tough Mae.

Just because Mae is ladylike doesn't mean that she doesn't have a little edge.  Sewn up in a bold print this blouse would go great with bright jeans and a moto jacket.  Pair with some cute flats and red lips for a cool cruising the town outfit.

Peggy knows how to get things done without losing her feminine side.  She especially looks fantastic sew in a bright solid...say hot pink. (I might have done this already.)  Pair the "lips" waistband with bow accessories and a tweedy blazer. You'll be ready for those cocktails after work.

Ensemble #4 - Flirty Fun Stella.

Stella is a great garment to wear either by it's self or with layers.  Sewn in a solid or print it would pair well with a short flirty skirt and a cardigan. Finish off the look with patterned tights and some bright accessories.  A super cute outfit for your movie date.

Happy dreaming and maybe frenzied sewing. ;)
