LIFESTYLE | GRACE ORMONDE’S ROMANCE INSPIRED VALENTINE’S DAY PICKS

Happy Valentine’s Day! While February 14th may be dedicated to romantic date nights, roses, and chocolatey gifts for love birds, we believe love and romance should be celebrated year-round. Keep that spark going for the rest of 2018 with Grace Ormonde’s romance inspired Valentine’s Day picks.

The Ensemble

From a lavish night of wining and dining, to an elegant wedding rehearsal dinner, Maison Schiaparelli’s pink evening gown with a heart-shaped bodice is the perfect embodiment of the Valentine’s Day spirit. Pair it with Schiaparelli’s “Pierced Heart” necklace (1) – a silver-gilt set with an iridescent gradient of Swarovski crystals – for the ultimate accessory statement.

The Engagement Ring

Valentine’s Day marks the peak of engagement season, and the Tu Duality engagement ring from Cadar (2 & 3) was made for the bride-to-be who loves bold, unique pieces. Handcrafted in polished 18K gold, this moving ring set opens to reveal a classic one-carat solitaire diamond in a platinum setting.

The Reading List

For you literary lovers out there, the Love Poems Book Band Set from Juniper Books (4) is a gorgeous collection of love-filled anthologies. With poems and personal letters from some of history’s most iconic writers, romance will grace your tabletop, nightstand, or bookshelves for years to come.

My love, we will go, we will go, I and you,
And away in the woods we will scatter the dew;
And the salmon behold, and the ousel too,
My love, we will hear, I and you, we will hear,
The calling afar of the doe and the deer.
And the bird in the branches will cry for us clear,
And the cuckoo unseen in his festival mood;
And death, oh my fair one, will never come near
In the bosom afar of the fragrant wood.

-William Butler Yeats

The Shoe Candy

You could be wearing an all-black outfit and still embrace the Valentine’s Day vibe with Roger Vivier’s red mule heels (5).

The Lingerie

Of course, no date night or honeymoon is complete without some gorgeously luxe lingerie. Matching sets with waspies and slinky robes by La Perla will always set the mood.

The Romantic Getaway

Feeling the need for some extended quality time together? Escape to the UAE and stay at the luxurious Bulgari Resort Dubai for the ultimate romantic getaway filled with pampering and relaxation.
