How to Dress up for Valentines Day!
Sass N Style with Amy Salinger
Daly Style Tips-www.sassnstyle.com
Amy: Hello and welcome to this episode of Sass N Style with me Amy Salinger. Today, we are doing a Valentine’s Day episode. I’m lucky enough to have my married friends come and help me out on this episode. I’m going to do outfits for each of them. They actually volunteered. Everybody wants to be in Sass N Style and don’t forget I will have tips right up and tell them all different styles every single day at Sass N Style.com so let’s put together some outfits.
Valentine’s Day Couple’s Style
Amy: So here we are with my lovely couple of friends. Hi! They what are what I like to call casual home bodies, they like to be relaxed, they like to be easy going so they’re not necessarily dressing up in a fufu gown everyday of their lives. Are you guys ready to show the world the outfits that we went together?
Jay: Yes, we are.
Amy: Alright Jake you’re first up, are you ready Jack?
Jay I’m ready.
Amy: Well you’re obviously ready because you’re halfway into the outfit.
Okay, how was your shopping experience with me? Remember I’m standing right here when you answer.
Loehmann’s Discount Clothing: www.loehman’s.com
Jay: The shopping experience was the easiest shopping experience I have ever had. I am not kidding we just went in and she just ran around the racks and was like oh look at this, look at this boom and then we got this, easy and cheap too.
Amy: We’ll leave easy and cheap alone and say that it only has to do with the shopping, thank you very much Jack.
Jay: Only the shopping.
Amy: Everybody wants to look good men, women it doesn’t matter. Men just have a lot more trouble focusing for a long period of time on putting together an outfit so put it all together for you to make it as easy as possible.
We needed something that was more like I’m going on a dinner date so the first thing I got was these darker pair of jeans. If you can lift this up, thank you. We just show— we don’t have things hanging out. Your fly is open Jay [Laughs].
We have this great jean. They’re properly fitted, guys stop wearing jeans that are too loose on you. Your clothes should fit you properly. The other thing that we wanted was I wanted to get him a fun button down and in this situation all that means is now you got to buy one belt to go with the fine shirt.
We got him what I refer to as a cool belt. I was like Jay, “What belts do you have?” And he’s like, “Oh I got these.” And I’m like, “Yeah those are work belts.” You know the difference by the buckle and by the leather to be a little bit distress if it’s just your typical you know square rectangular buckle it’s probably not a cool belt by Amy Salinger’s standards.
The velvet blazer is very in this season for men, because I kept it basic in the color I was able to make the shirt a little bit more fun and pick more feminine colors such as eggplant. Hold’s on to your cuffs because this will be important right now. Pull the cuff a little bit longer and have it coming out just a little bit then— don’t you love how you get to pull everything off. Pull out the collar. I like that it’s a hard bold collar. I love it. It’s kind of a slick black shoe and what I did by tying in two pieces of black items. The shoes and the belt, I made it appropriate to wear with brown. Are we ready to get Tammy dressed up.
Jay: Yeah, let’s make her ready.
Amy: Let’s bring her in.
What was the terminology you used my dear for your style?
Tammy: I call it conservative schick.
Amy: Conservative schick. A lot of turtlenecks, you’re very comfortable like that and that’s totally fine, but Tammy has this great curvy cute little body and it’s like Valentine’s Day. Let’s give Jay something to look at. Obviously we still have a turtle neck going on here so she’s still in her comfort zone but it’s a sexy turtleneck dress. It’s made out of satin material. It’s form fitting where did you get it?
Tammy: I got it at the outlet.
Amy: And how much was it originally?
Tammy: It’s a little over $200 and only paid $40 for it.
Amy: Got to love a good deal.
There’s a lot of people out there who don’t even realize at a certain point that they could actually look better if they tailored things a little bit more appropriately. This dress is a pencil-style dress. It’s meant to be more fitted. It needs to be pegged in the middle and more specifically it needs to be the proper length. The tailoring actually I know is about $60. Factor it in, its part of the dresses cost right at the beginning.
I’ve added, instead of doing a classic heel, I got it an opaque tight and sleek black pointed toe boot. Number one, because she own both of them but also keeps the bottom a lot sleeker and a lot more vampy. This is a— belt. It’s absolutely beautiful, it’s great leather. It’s a pop of funk in the middle of her outfit.
Forever 21 www.forever21.com
I had this little cardigan it’s actually from Forever 21. I have had it for like 3 years and I love it. Gold woven into it to pull out the gold in the belt and most important thing it’s croft at the waist. You don’t want ever to have too many different lengths going on around your waist because then you’re not getting this nice curvy womanly feel.
She was a little bit hesitant to buy these but I still strongly stand by the, it’s a little— because you can’t have it be too big with the turtle neck collar. I purposely put her hair in a high pony with a little puff at the top. The final thing is that my beautiful Satrine Antique ring. I am going to lend this too her because I have complete faith in her.
Tammy: I’m going to keep it.
Amy: She claims that I’m not going to get it back but it is a beautiful real Satrine ring and she has a great engagement ring and wedding bound that Jay gave her. He’s such a wonderful husband. Let’s see if I ever get any of this back. She’s claiming she’s taking the ring from me. We’ll find out.
