Instant Gratification: Top 5 Selfish Gifts for V-Day
February 4, 2010
Just because Valentine’s Day is fast-approaching, give yourself a little love, no matter what your relationship status. If you’re unattached, celebrate the fact that you don’t have to partake in boyfriend gift giving, and treat yourself with a little something indulgent. We’ve found 5 girly gifts under $100 to give you some ideas.
1. Luscious Red Lipstick
This spring is all about the statement lipstick. Nothing perks up an outfit quite like a brilliant red pout. We’ve found the ultimate red lipstick with Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupté. At $32 it may seem a bit pricey, but we swear that once you try it, you’ll never go back to your old red shades again.
2. Asymmetrical Dress
The 2010 red carpets have been full of stars like Taylor Swift in beautiful one-shoulder dresses. Get in on this trend with a sexy red asymmetrical number by Victoria’s Secret, $78.
3. Mascara Sampler
The best makeup tool of all is mascara, and you really can never have enough of it. We’re obsessed with Sephora’s LashStash Mascara Deluxe Sampler with 10 different brands of mascara it’s valued at $104, but only costs $39. You’ll have a new mascara for each day of the week, and then some.
4. Studded Platform Heels
Nothing is quite as empowering as a fabulous pair of high heels. Throw in some punk rock studs, like on these Colin Stuart sandals for $75, and you’ve got heels that are made from some serious fun.
5. “It” Bag
Every girl needs a stylish staple bag for daily use. A leather satchel will not only hold all your miscellaneous necessities, but is also a timeless wardrobe addition. This studded purple bag by Urban Expressions matches most every occasion and has killer attitude.
