This year, get your sweets at sugarfina where you can customize an upscale bento box of the finest candies – no more dissecting many chocolate-fruit crèmes to find the one chocolate caramel you’d actually want. Make a box of all your faves for you and your sweetie! Or if you really want to go for the gold, get 24k gold champagne marshmallows!

I feel no Valentine’s date is complete without a classic sexy dress.

We love the Kiyonna “Bianca Dress”  for a glam night out. The sexy cut out shoulder detail and ruched body is the perfect dress for a great date.

The fluted sleeve also means that this dusky pink dress is not only in the colour of the season, but the exaggerated sleeve is also the silhouette to have your eye on in SS17.

Is your style, really avant garde?
