What’s Hot for Valentine’s Day


All right, ladies, it’s that time of year again – and before we get into singles versus couples and the Great Valentine’s Day Debate (i.e. who you’re going to share it with), let’s step back and consider this: whether you have your date planned or reservations made for a night out with the girls, this Valentine’s Day remember you’re worth spoiling, and you’re absolutely capable of doing that yourself. So check out what’s red-hot this month, whether you’re treating yourself or dropping a few well-placed hints.


With Mardi Gras right around the corner, we have a lot of reasons to dress up this season, and with pieces like these Sennod vignette chains, a lot of opportunities to change up your look. Diverse and unique, these chains from FeBe Clothing in Metairie allow you to create several different looks by interchanging different pieces – at home, at the office or out on the town.
