I swear I had no intention of jumping right off the Christmas and New Year springboard into the disgustingly sweet pool of all things Valentine’s Day. But then I stumbled upon these adorable vintage-inspired party dresses from D-Daydress and I kind of couldn’t help myself. I mean, seriously, what is better than a vintage-inspired dress made of lace and tulle and appliqué with the cutest full skirt for extra flirtiness and sass? Not much, in my opinion! I would totally don one of these beauties for a date night with the sole intention of turning some heads and proving to everyone that I will wear what I damn well please! I don’t care if I am 43, these dresses are screaming to my inner beauty queen and I really kind of want one…or six.

As I am sharing these dresses with Valentine’s Day in mind, I have to admit that I have never been a fan of Valentine’s Day at all and what it represents. The mass consumerism around it always seemed so silly to me. Also, I do not believe in celebrating your love more intensely on one designated day of the year. I want to celebrate it every day!
But the one special day that I would love to celebrate is our wedding anniversary, however, this has been a challenge since the very first one! January 23 will mark 8 years of marriage for me and my soldier. And this year will be the 6th anniversary that we cannot spend together due to military obligations! It has sort of become a joke to us now. Every January, he has to travel somewhere…whether it be overseas on deployment or somewhere stateside for training, we have only been able to spend 2 out of 8 anniversaries together and one of those two, I was enormously pregnant so we enjoyed a quiet dinner at home that was prepared by our best friend.
As we are tracking right now, the same thing will happen next year on our wedding anniversary. But then, my husband will retire and we are looking forward to our 10th anniversary and the possibility that we can actually spend the day together. I am thinking something super special needs to happen in celebration of that day! I should start planning now. And I would love your suggestions!
So I guess I might also need one of these pretty dresses to put away for that special day!
I would love to hear from you in the comments…which is your favorite of these dresses? Would you wear a fancy party dress like this to celebrate Valentine’s Day? And what fabulous ideas do you have for me to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary (even though it is 2 years away)?
I have not ordered yet from D-Daydress, but most of their dresses can be customized with size and color specifications. Because the orders are custom-made, you need to allow time for the tailoring and processing of your dress, so order now if you have Valentine’s Day in mind! They do ship to most countries worldwide. I hope you enjoyed this post. Happy shopping!
