Canada Fashion Jobs – The Single Girl’s Guide To V-Day







Call it a crusade for the single ladies – this year, I am banishing my woeful single Valentine’s Days of the past in lieu of a celebratory holiday for none other than myself. I am even going to insist upon calling it “V for VALERIE Day.” And how do I intend on marking such a commemorative occasion, you may ask? By indulging in the finer things in life, of course. This includes serious retail therapy, decadent treats and some R & R. No boys and no drama allowed!

1, 2. Paint the town red with some girly accessories. Aldo “Cyphert” Handbag ($45) and Jeffrey Campbell “Meeker” Booties (Approx. $160), at Solestruck.

3, 4. You don’t need a man to buy you jewellery – it’s all about you, baby! CC Skye “Femme Fatale” Earrings (Approx. $220) and Rachel Leigh “Fitz” Bangle (Approx. $200), available at Sophie’s Closet.

5. Indulge in a soothing bath with Booty Parlor’s Bath Kitten Kit ($59). This package even comes with a massaging mitt – the perfect way to relax. Available at Beautymark.

6. Unwind with a scented candle. My current favourite is the Library Collection by Paddywax ($25).

7. The only man you need on V-Day is Thomas Haas. Check out the Thomas Haas Patisserie-Chocolate and Cafes in Vancouver or shop online for delectable treats.

8. Girly lit and chick flicks are my guilty pleasures – minus the boy drama. I like my entertainment full of inspiring women and great fashion. Trade your copy of He’s Just Not That Into You for Jeanne Beker’s new book, Strutting It!, from Amazon.
