Happy Valentine’s Day all! Given my love for pink and red, I figured we’d celebrate this Hallmark holiday with an outfit that celebrates the colors of love. While we all know I’m no stranger to color, it’s always a little more fun when it involves things like polka dots and a big sparkly bow – wouldn’t you agree?

A few weeks ago I attended an Accessories Council tweet-up where the crowd had a chance to win one of two Lena Erziak handbags. Now, if you ask anyone that knows me, I am not usually a lucky one. My sister tends to take the cake when it comes to being a winner. So we can say I was VERY surprised when I was the first name called to win this beau of a handbag that you see above. Well the name of the bag is John – so I guess we can say was a match made in heaven since that’s the husband’s name (minus the H).

Where does one carry a bright red handbag adorned with giant gold bow? Anywhere she very well pleases in my opinion. He’s made a few appearances during fashion week and definitely plans on being part of this year’s Valentine’s ensemble.

How do you make your ensembles feel extra special?
