all you need is love - but a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt

Blazer from F21  Blouse from Kenzie  Pants from Parasuco  Boots from Steve Madden  Sunglasses from H&M

One February 13th, some years ago, I found myself in a chocolate store. Naturally of course. As I'm searching through the boxes, two young guys are furiously - almost - yelling at the sales associate. "What do you mean you don't have the low fat ones? How could they sell out? I can't buy regular chocolate... I have to protect my investment!" Needless to say I wasn't sure if I should laugh, or cry, or kick him. Instead I kept my fingers crossed for the poor gall. 

Happy Valentines Day lovely ladies and gents! May you never receive low fat chocolate (unless that's your thing..I'm not judging)

That is a funny (and slightly disturbing) story! Glad I'm not his girl! Love the mix of the red blazer and olive blouse. Gorgeous boots, too! ~Stopping by through EBEW~

I really love these photos!

Katya said...

Katya said...

ahha I think I would throw the low fat chocolates back at him. You look great in that red blazer! Happy V-day!

Katya said...

That is such a fantastic red blazer! And also a pretty amazing Valentines day story :)

Katya said...

The guy in your story sounds like something that starts with a "d" and ends in "ouche." And I can't believe you got that blazer at F21, it's awesome! Was it a recent purchase?

Katya said...

Tell me about it! I was *this close* to saying something.

As for the blazer, I bought it just a week or two ago, so it should definitely still be in stores :) There was the same one, in a gorgeous fuchsia color, that I'm debating buying...When something works why fix it right?

Katya said...

Eeww, what an ass! Also, that jacket is so gorgeous - I love the blazer selection at F21.

Agreed! I would have taken them one by one and chucked them as hard as possible. What an evil boy - he still had so much to learn ;)

Katya said...

great valentine's day story! i love your red blazer, especially paired with olive green. great color idea!

Katya said...

Oh no! That's horrible! Love the the red with the green for Valentine's Day. It doesn't look Christmas-ish as all, but rather classic and chic :)

Katya said...

Love this outfit!!

Katya said...

I love that pop of olive with the blouse!

lace, etc.

Katya said...

That story is too funny though I'm a little appalled at the "protecting their investment" speak, major eyeroll at those guys. Love your bright red blazer! Happy Valentine's Day! :)

I'm kind of in love with this jacket. The red is a great color on you.
But OMG 'protect my investment?' What a jag-off. Just buy her roses instead. ;)

Katya said...

Oh damn. It's funny... as long as it isn't your man!
Love your fabulous red blazer!

Katya said...

red is certainly your color! love this red blazer!! happy v-day!

I have the exact same boyfriend blazer! It's seriously my fave as I can wear it witha whole bunch of different colors and textures. Haven't tried it with olive-drab before. Will do soon. Thanks for the idea! Happy V'Day! xo Dee from www.stringsandbuttons.com
