5 Valentine's Dresses (that aren't red!) for Under $50

Clockwise: Lace / Pleats / Chiffon / Draped / Peter Pan

I love a festive frock but sometimes it's fun to be subdued. Here's a little roundup of some flowy and flirty dresses that say (not scream) sweet, charming, and lovable each under fifty bones! And if you're looking for something a little more obvious and still on trend, well here's your girl! Curious, do you dress for the occasion or think it's cheesy?

Speaking of V.day...Did you know that in Finland Valentine's Day is called Ystävänpäivä which translates into "Friend's day"? It's what I've been saying all along!

  1. I like the magenta one! We don't go out on the actual V-Day. I'm anti fighting the crowds when we can go out in the city anytime, but we are seeing American Idiot and having dinner that following Saturday. Hubs says that's our V-Day celebration. I do wear red or bright pink to work that day though.

  2. My wedding anniversary is Feb 25 so we sort of stopped celebrating V day and do one big combo celebration closer to the end of the month...but I would love to wear any of these dresses for that!
