Stylin' Series Sews & Shops for Valentine's Day

It's not too early for Valentine's Day if you need to sew and order accessories.

If time & money were no concern, I'd dress like this for dinner:

las frambuesas mexican cocoa ruby dangle earrings from etsy seller jennifermorrisbeads. I featured her earrings previously here where a whole outfit was planned around the earrings, they inspired me so. Someday, I will bite and buy. The jewelry and descriptions are drool-worthy. It hurts to look at what's sold, knowing others own these beauties. Check her store out. It goes without saying, this outfit started with the earrings, then I shopped for fabric ...

... and found rayon jersey in deep red at Gorgeous Fabrics. Looks like Chianti, Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon ... pick your favorite red ... romantic and yummmmmmmmmm!

Sew it into a drapey top with Jalie's Knit Scarf-Collar Top, with sleeves or sleeveless. So you don't need a necklace. Let those earrings shine. And the scarf will play up the vertical drop of the earrings.

Wear it with a black skirt or pants you already own.

Add an antique gold clutch from Nordstrom to hold lipstick so you're ready for Valentine kisses, and Elie Tahari old gold sandals from Zappos.
