True Love

Happy Valentine's Day, everybody! What's everyone wearing? Every year I want to buckle down and come up with a really jaw-dropping, romance-inspiring masterpiece of an outfit, but the closest I've ever come to this was in 2nd grade when I got my mom to make me a vest out of fabric printed in cartoon hearts. (Sadly, I do not have a photo.) However, I still dream:

My dream involves frothy chiffon, luxe fabrics like satin and velvet, and roses, roses everywhere!

Do you think wearing a couture gown IRL would be embarrassing, like getting an oversized bouquet of roses at work? Or would it just be awesome?
