Attention shoppers: February 14th is fast approaching. Rather than leave your shopping until the last minute, start strategically purchasing now, with a selection of gifts in a palette of perfectly romantic reds and pinks. Look beyond on the makeup counter for a perfume with a unique formula, such as Frédéric Malle’s Portrait of a Lady, which mixes rose essence with a patchouli. For a classic piece that still feels modern, one can’t go wrong with a Saint Laurent’s monogram Kate clutch, and lingerie-wise, La Perla is a staple for a reason. And then there is jewelry–with so many stunning, sparkling options out there, look beyond diamond studs this season, either with Spinelli’s dark pink sapphires, a Poiret heart-adorned ring, or an enchanting carnelian bracelet from Cartier.
