So Grishley is coming through in the clutch (with time to prepare) to make sure that no matter what kind of message you will be sending this Valentine’s Day, you look smashing doing it. Not to mention a fashion treat or two for numero uno that are much better than chocolates!
The Big V-Day usually breaks down into three categories style wise;
1. The -Date Night Look.
2. The-You best be taking me on a date tonight Day Look.
3. The- I’m gonna look better than your Valentine anyways Look.

The Date Night Look
The key to the date night look, is that it is a date night. It might be the first time that you and your main squeeze have made it out of the old routine of rent a movie and ordering in, so you might as well try to break the fashion bank on this one (notice Grishley didn’t say budget). Without breaking the rules of the comfort and style cocktail, this look is an excellent choice for a night out on the town… even if that night ends up being a movie and midnight pancakes at your favorite diner.
Lets begin with the staple piece the dress! Grishley has wrangled up a few options for you to make your date night extra special
All three of these looks are available at bannanarepublic.gap.com . All looks are available online and will set you back no more than about $60.
These looks are great to purchase for a date night, because they can easily be accessorized for the office, or a lunch date with your girlfriends. When it comes to making an investment in a single piece like a cocktail dress, always look at the price vs. usage idea. If you can get away with it under a cardigan every third Wednesday at the office, then it is probably a good buy!
If you don’t own a pair of black tights by now get on it! They are available virtually everywhere and won’t break the bank! Another rule at Girshley is to invest one piece at a time. If you go to wallet-town on a cocktail dress, don’t buy new shoes. If you follow this rule and play your cards right you can splurge just a little bit on these tasty accessories!
All of these earrings are from Grishley favorite Modcloth.com. All of these dangles are date worthy, and none of them will set you back more then about $20.
The- You best best be taking me on a date tonight look
Now this look is for the ladies, that may not be so spoken for as those who have a date on lock down for V-Day. This look is for the ladies who wanna plant the date seed into the shamelessly handsome noggin of the guy in class/on the bus/ in the office/maybe even at church.
Now ladies the key to this look is innocent hinting, we’re not going to channel Fatal Attraction on this one, or ever for that matter.
Grishley has pulled some great skirts for your come hither hinting pleasure, all of which are from the fashion favorite ModCloth, and at prices all under $75, these skirts will not ony allow you to treat yourself, but also serve you well in the coming warm months!
There are a few great things about all three of these skirts, First off their length makes them ultra versatile. They would all pair nicely with a knee high boot, or even a maryjane. They are also great picks because they offer the -to tuck or not to tuck- option, all having a gentle taper to make their styling possibilities endless. Let’s face it ladies, If he can’t figure it out with one of these skirts, some pumps and a smile… you might as well move on.
The- I’m gonna look better than your Valentine anyways Look.
So it is probably a safe assumtion to note that at one V-Day or another we have all been the woman scourned. Either by the fact that we don’t have an arm to show us off that night, or for the sheer fact that somewhere out there, there is a not so nice lady on the arm you used to be on. We have all had those visions of keying the side of his car Carrie Underwood style…but really in the end we all know that there is only one rational way to truly get back at an Ex…Shoes. These shoes require some healthy planning budget wise, but they are sure to profit you in more ways than one.
All three of these options offer sky high confidence infused with a cute and spicy knack for your feet. Spanning the shoe spectrum from high, mighty and risky, to more demure business with a wink.
Need Grishley say more? All of these looks are from Nordstrom.com and they are destined to make you feel like a million bucks.
When it comes to love and life, Don’t hate the player, Don’t hate the game.
Just have phenomenal shoes.
Happy Valentine’s Day- Love Grishley
