From the designer clothing range I like the BCBGMAXAZRIA Short Strapless Dress. This short strapless, striped organza dress in pure silk has a sweetheart neckline, banded, beaded empire waist and a gorgeous pleated skirt with side boning at the bodice and clear grip strip for extra hold. It's fully lined and priced at $318. Easily dress this chic number up with heels, a clutch and some basic jewelry.

The Tory Burch Bombe Reva clutch in distressed metallic leather, shown in the picture below would be just perfect. This fully lined metallic clutch has a removable chain shoulder strap with a 9" drop from shoulder and front flap with concealed magnetic closure. It measures 12"W x 6.5"H x .5"D and has double interior zip pockets.

The Rebecca Taylor zebra strapless dress priced at $295 is also cute. It's made in cotton/silk and as shown in the second picture features a tonal zebra print. I love the Lupine color! This strapless dress has a sweetheart neckline and inverted pleating under its empire waist. By the way I love the heels in this picture, don't you?

From the designer handbags I just love the Kooba Women's Ryder Tote (see the very first picture above). In particular, I love the color and style of this handbag. Made from Italian leather, the Kooba Ryder shoulder tote measures 14"H x 15.75"W x 5.25"D and has eye-catching zipper details. It has double flat shoulder straps with an 8.5" drop from the shoulder and features shiny nickel hardware. It also has one large zip pocket and two cell phone pockets. This handbag is available in Pink, Yellow and Black but I'll have it in Pink thank you! Priced at $595 before the discount, the fully lined Kooba Ryder tote is a must see handbag.

About Bruno Magli: Bruno Magli was founded in Bologna, Italy in the 1930’s when three siblings, Marino, Maria and Bruno Magli were taught the art of shoemaking by their grandfather in a small basement. Having outgrown the basement, in 1936, they moved the business into a factory, otherwise known as The Magli Shoe Factory (Calzaturifico Magli). Propelled by the "Made in Italy" craze, Bruno Magli quickly became a leader in design, fabrication and commercialization of high-quality fashion shoes and became a major competitor in the Italian footwear market.

Headed by the second generation of the Magli family, in 1968, Bruno Magli moved to its current headquarters in Bologna and has since successfully maintained its position as a leader in the footwear industry by retaining the traditional values that have made it the prestigious Italian luxury brand since the 1930's.

You may recall that Bruno Magli shoes were in the spotlight during the O.J. Simpson trial when FBI expert William Bodziak testified that the famous bloody shoe prints at the scene of the double murder of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman had been left by a size-12 pair of $160 "Lorenzo" model Bruno Magli shoes. O.J. denied that he ever owned them and called the Brunos "ugly ass shoes" however, photos were later shown to the jury of Simpson at a September 1993 football game, wearing shoes positively identified by Bodziak as size 12, Lorenzo-style Bruno Maglis. The actual shoes used during the crime have not been recovered and because of the increased brand recognition, the O.J. Simpson trial led to increased sales of Bruno Magli shoes.

Valentine's Day Gift Ideas

When you think of Valentine's Day or Saint Valentine's Day do you think of the Valentine's Day Massacre, one of the most publicized incident of gang war slaying in history that occurred on St Valentine's Day, February 14, 1929, when Al Capone finally established himself as Chicago's boss of organized crime? This infamous massacre became the subject of the 1959 movie Some Like it Hot and Roger Corman's famous 1967 film The St. Valentine's Day Massacre.

Saint | Valentine's Day | Massacre

Of course us normal folks know that rather than thinking about the gangster murders, St. Valentine's Day, February 14th, is celebrated as a day of love and romance. On Valentine's Day, lovers, friends and family members exchange Valentine gifts as tokens of love. Lovers celebrate Valentine's Day by expressing love to their sweethearts with an exchange of love notes and simple gifts such as flowers. Couples also plan out romantic getaways or Valentine parties to celebrate Valentine's Day romantically. So it's more a day of arrows, hearts, cupid, roses and chocolates.

Valentine's Day Gifts

Most commonly observed Valentine's Day tradition and custom is expressing one's love with an exchange of cards, flowers and gifts. Popular gifts exchanged on the day include cards, fresh flowers- mainly rose, chocolates and candy. These days, people also complement these with other gifts of love to express affection and love. Stores and boutiques big and small run Valentine's Day specials and sales. Here are some special finds :)

For $59.99 you'll receive one white candle in a red, heart decorated holder, a small bottle of chocolate body frosting, a heart shaped lollipop, a garter belt (choose between three) and a pair of stockings.
