Dear Fashion Friend:

The good people of www.aleyacollections.com  on Instagram recently wrote: “Let’s get Valentine’s going.” This red sequined party dress matches those sentiments for a captivating February 14th quite well! Isn’t it exquisite? Its spaghetti straps form to meet as a racer back, contributing to the loveliness of the dress. Its use of disk-shaped beads provides for an enchanting design pattern! I love it!

Aleya’s website offers some great accessories to go with this dress. I would suggest one of the beautiful assortments of cashmere/wool pashmina scarves on display. Or a gorgeous neckpiece made from opal stone beads (listed on Aleya’s website as “Opals Stone Beads Chokers Necklace”). They would all look stunning with the presented clothing!

Last time, we envisioned our model and her beloved having a lunch date at the Red Hawk Bar and Grill in Ann Arbor, Michigan. I can see her heart skipping a beat when she read on the card: “You're not just my life; you're my everything.” Afterward, her beloved surprised her with dinner plans at Sava’s and – for later – watching at home one of her favorite Charlie Chaplin movies: Limelight. St. Valentine’s Day reminds us always to remember this thought by George Sand: “There is only one happiness in life: to love and to be loved.”

I hope that your visit to www.aleyacollections.com was an enchanting one!
