Sealed with a Kiss

Nothing says Be Mine like reds, pinks, ruffles and lace. This Valentine’s Day reveals a hidden romance as intense as her ruffled dress

Stolen glances from across the room or the lingering aroma of an irresistible scent, he can never get her off his mind. But why should he? She is the woman he has always wished for. A powerhouse, strong and empowered, listing off her favorite authors one day as she keeps her heart on her bag with a pink ANYA HINDMARCH Key Chain. But sultry the next day as she wears her favorite text, “Casino Royale” by Ian Fleming as an OLYMPIA LE-TAN book clutch, which safely carries his love notes while she’s out on the town. You chase after a girl like that. One bat of her blue, doey eyes at him and he is hers forever. A love like this deserves bold moves, which she takes as she covers herself in white feathers from her SONIA RYKIEL Feather Detail Top. But their love is hidden, a secret best kept between each other. Valentine’s Day is their day to celebrate their passionate love affair with just as intense scintillating sparkle and rich reds. They don’t dare to leave their suite, alone together they can read, laugh and drink wine. Their dramatic romance is ignited with candlelight that subtly creates a rainbow sparkle from the rhinestones on her SAINT LAURENT Mini Skirt. Her red lipstick leaves a mark on the wine glass and it matches her STELLA MCCARTNEY lip iPhone case. They mark their favorite pages as they read through a book of poems. As she reads to him, she kicks her feet up, he notices the straps of her ALEXANDRE BIRMAN Lolita Sandals are tied ever so softly. Ruffles as big as his heart grace her shoulders in a ROSIE ASSOULIN Ruffle Blouse and lace from her GIVENCHY Ruffle Detail Dress are as delicate as when he whispers sweet nothings in her ear. Wishing for this night to never end and morning to never come. They don’t dare finish the bottle of wine or close that book.
