It may have not been a romantic Valentine’s Day in the sense of love, but my Valentine’s Day was certainly romantic in many other senses of the word.

I was romanced as I walked into the Downtown Los Angeles Theatre, my eyes taking to the heavens as I beheld a gold-gilded foyer. The space was historic and grandiose, kissed by columns, adorned by crystal chandeliers.

It was filled with hundreds of people dressed to the nines–anything from bejeweled ballgowns to retro tuxedos. I was in love, and most excited to celebrate love by watching Roman Holiday on the retro theater’s big screen. And isn’t that what Valentine’s Day is all about?

I was among the attendees in my evening ensemble: a color-blocked, tuxedo-hued garment with a low-cut halter top. The skirt flared out in the fifties fashion as my clear strapped heels swept across the damask carpet of the theater.

The dress was married with a thick black belt and embraced with a black Louis Vuitton shawl. For added retro glamour, I wore my hair in loose curls, with a deep side part pinned the Vivienne Leigh way. Last but not least, I sealed my look with a ruby-kissed lip.

Besides the fairytale of it all, I enjoyed attending the magical event with some of my best friends. Galentine’s day, if I may say so, was quite a success!
