Style Glossary: Wrap Yourself in Luxe Fabrics This V-Day

We’ve been so caught up in the frenzy of Fashion Week (Read: Obsessively clicking through slideshows and posting our favorite pics on Tumblr), we almost didn’t realize one of our favorite holidays, Valentine’s Day, is just around the corner! Do you plan to get all glam this Val Day? If you like to feel fancy, style runway-ready looks, and learn about fashion history as much as we do, take a cue from ModCloth’s own Martha, Molly, and Julie!

This Valentine’s Day, like the nine Valentine’s Days before it, Martha and her husband will revel in their favorite holiday tradition: “Cheese pizza and the nicest bottle of wine we can afford!”

Social Media Editor Martha is dressed to the nines in a fabulous frock from one of our favorite retro-inspired designers, Pinup Couture. For accessories, the Cocktail Reception Headband and the Button Me Uptown Heel only add to the vintage feel of this picturesque satin ensemble. If you follow @ModCloth, Martha is the lovely lady you’ve been chatting with!

“I’m a sucker for watching old movies,” admits Molly. “It Happened One Night and Bringing Up Baby are my favorites for Valentine’s Day.”

Molly, a Fashion Writer who writes copy for Latest Looks as well as product descriptions, dazzles in the ‘won-tulle-ful’ Stellar System Dress, layered underneath the cropped Sweet Assortment Top and the Heart Songs Necklace. Rhinestone-adorned tights and Jeffrey Campbell heels round out this playful guise!

“The perfect Valentine’s evening to me is a night at home, some Indian food delivery, a bottle of red wine, the cat, and snuggling up with a ridiculously good bad movie or some British comedy shows. Oh yes, my boyfriend should be there, too!” said Julie.

Julie, an Advertising Writer who spends her days writing cute, concise copy, is wearing the textural Cause for Celebration Dress in Sapphire and a pair of versatile peep toes, both of which embody romance, whimsy, and all of those other lovey-dovey feelings associated with Valentine’s Day.

What are you doing to celebrate on Monday? More importantly, what do you plan on wearing?
