Valentines day is almost upon us once again! I know that a lot of people think its just a silly way for businesses to make extra money, but you can apply that to just about any holiday nowadays! Even though its commercialized, I like it. I'm single this year but i'm still celebrating it. Why? Well, the holiday is about "love" and I love myself so why not! I think its important to love yourself and everyone should treat themselves a little now and then. So while gentlemen are off buying fancy jewelery and nice gifts for their lady friends, i'll be treating myself to a manicure and pair of new shoes.
Valentines Day will only be lonely if you let it be. You don't need to be in a relationship to celebrate the holiday, surround yourself with the ones you love and enjoy their company and don't focus on what you don't have. I like to remind myself that while I may be single this Valentines Day and possibly the next one too, it won't be for ever.
With that said, I have been browsing lots of online stores and there is so many pretty red dresses out there right now, I just had to share them. Maybe if you are looking for a little V-Day inspiration this will help! Unfortunately plus sized retailers are slacking in the "pretty red dresses for Valentines Day" this year so all of these come from regular stores. Can't you just imagine wearing #4 on a romantic picnic, or #5 to a fancy cocktail bar..

If I had a boyfriend and we had something special planned, I would probably wear the outfit below. I never really look at Religion clothing but this dress is very much "me". The soft, draping fabric and tie waist belt make for a dreamy dress!
