In my 20 some years of life, I'm nearly certain this is the first time I've worn red on Valentine's Day.

Annnnnd, I have an invite code for all of you. It's for my site TagLoudly, which lets you host your blog photos at high quality, tag them with useful captions and links (ie the online store where you bought the item, location info, brands, etc), share photos via short URLs, and let your readers like your blog photos on your blog. We've just launched in private beta, and we're eager to hear your feedback, so here's the invite code: SOPHIA


H&M sweater, vintage velvet dress, Salvatore Ferragamo Vara shoes, YesStyle bag

You've created a fantastic program - you should be super proud of yourself! Congrats Sophia.

you look beautiful in a spot of red and I've been loving the tag.loudly since dylana shared her code. really amazing idea sophia!

love the relaxed sweater with the elbow patches!!


You do look great! I love your ferragamos!!

your site is a huge success (many of the blogs I follow use the tag.loudly program)! what i love about this blog post is the use of the word curmudgeon, the beautiful crimson shade of your dress, and the second image of this post (very urban outfitters-esque). happy valentine's day sophia!

I just signed up! Weee. I think this is the bestest idea everr. Can't wait to use it.

I love the unicorns. Haha. :D

Love the simplicity in this look. But the colors make it special, though!

NICE!!! :)

What an easy yet stylish look, it is such a great daytime look taking over the city. I love the combination of the sweater and the velvet skirt. Especially the details on the sweater makes is a lot more interesting. Your Ferragamo flats are elegant and perfect for the outfit. I always love a big bag, you can wear it on any occasion. So you did fabulous.

The red velvet looks awesome. I like how you've knotted your sweater in the first photo. Also, I've signed up for tag.loudly. It's such a great idea!

Well I hate V-Day, but somehow I wore a bright red beanie with my yesterday's outfit... :o))


i have also been afraid of red in the past but now beginning to love it.

You look awesome!

Thank you! The site is awesome :)

Super cute outfit dear! <3

Love this look. It's so simple yet so chic. Gorgeous color on the skirt :D

i love the way you tied your sweater around your waist.

Absolutely love this idea. Definitely going to sign up.

Great pics, I see you're taking advantage of the slight increase in temp here. Thanks for taking a look at my work and for the compliments. I just got my web girl to put in the tag loudly code. I'm gonna give it a try soon. It really is a great idea. Thanks for the post.

love the idea of wearing a dress as a skirt in the winter time, I do it all the time :) and I love your red velvet cupcake color you added to vday!

love, live & wear

Thank you! I love this system, and I was wondering how to do it. As for that Wang bag... my god, why must he keep coming out with such lust-worthy accessories?!

Brilliant idea. Will attempt my hand at it tomorrow (post major dentist visit, I am sure to have lots of time to recoup!!). Congrats!
