There are so many puppies in need of a loving home.  Every day, new puppies arrive on the doorsteps of the growing number of No-Kill shelters throughout the city. Even though the city just built a new $5 million dollar shelter for abandoned pets, there still isn’t enough room to house the overwhelming population.

So why not share the true meaning of Valentines Day with your significant other or, if you’re single like me, share it with yourself.  Go out today and save a life and give yourself the greatest companion there is to humans- A Dog.

What to Wear This Valentine’s Day

Now that the holidays are past us and Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, the question on many a woman’s mind is “What am I going to wear?” Most women are looking for something sexy and more glam than their usual out-on-the-town outfit. There are endless possibilities when it comes to putting together a trend-setting outfit. Be creative with your style. The most romantic date night of the year should celebrate your individual style. Don’t be afraid to drape yourself in decadence with fabulous accessories and detailed dresses. From sequins to silk, from leather to denim, have fun with your style this Valentine’s Day.

A super-popular old-school look is the good-old fit-and-flare style for dresses. Popular in casual and dressy styles, this look stems from the “skater chic” that was so popular in the fall. As we entrench ourselves into the cold months of winter, hems have become a bit longer. To really exaggerate this hourglass silhouetted, try a crinoline slip.

If pants are more to your liking, the popular choice this season is skinny, skinny, skinny. If that look isn’t for you, however, try a 1970s-influenced bell bottom boot cut pant.

Check out the items below for some specific outfit ideas:

Start with this adorable textured black mini skirt. This classic style is also fun and flirty. Pair it with a sexy top and strappy sandals if you are in warmer climes. If its winter temperatures you’ll be dealing with, however, tights—try some with a little shimmer—and high-heeled boots will keep you warm while still looking sexy. Or try some textured tights and an ankle boot for something a little edgier!

A patterned, silky skirt will offer you plenty of variety in terms of tops and shoes you can pair it with. With a sexy tank top, you’ll be ready for a night on the town. Add a camisole and jacket, and this skirt will take you to the office in style.
