D surprised me couple months ago telling me that he snagged us tickets to Couture Fashion Week! Unfortunately, our Valentine's Day was spent traveling back from Florida, so we used this opportunity as a belated Valentine's Day date and had an amazing time. 

We saw African designer Allex Kangala's menswear collection and those suits were ohmigosh, so stunning. From patterned and textured material, to flowered, geometric and coordinating lapels, and gorgeous tailoring, the tradition suit is getting a serious upgrade. Ladies, you better up the ante, 'cause your guy is totally gonna steal the center of attention in one of those dashing numbers.

Those sweaters were anything but boring as well. Decorated with fun pockets, interesting weaving and texture and embellishments such as leather trim and ribbon throughout, they almost have me wishing
that I could wear them now...almost.

I was lucky enough to be able to take a few pics with the models and D got some amazing behind-the-scenes snaps in hair and makeup. We followed up the show with an amazing dinner at Va Bene on the Upper East Side...that place is delicious and never disappoints.

Thanks for such a great date night, D!
