Get Ready for Galentine’s Day!
Let’s face it – Valentine’s Day can be stressful. If you’re in a relationship, there are so many expectations built up around creating a perfect date. If you don’t have a significant other, you’re inundated with media messaging about how supremely important romance is supposed to be in our lives. How did it all get so complicated?
Remember when we were in grade school, and we used to give out Valentine’s cards? They were handwritten and sweet, and we all gave one to everyone in the classroom.
Let’s get back to celebrating friendship. Get ready to celebrate Galentine’s Day!
Did you know?
We did some homework, and learned that the Galentine’s Day tradition originated in 2010 in an episode of Parks and Recreation. The show’s lead character, played by Amy Poehler, throws her annual "Galentine's Day" party for her female friends. This festive event takes place on the day before Valentine's Day, and is all about celebrating the unique bonds between women.
How do I celebrate?
Make a plan to celebrate the fabulous women in your life.
We lean on our female friends, because we know we can. These are the ladies who are there for you through every crisis, every celebration, every upheaval, everything! Think back to some off the best times in your life, and we’ll bet that your girlfriends were involved in more than a few.
On February 13, gather your besties and enjoy the laughter and joy of an epic girls’ outing.
What should I wear?
A night out is more fun when you all primp and prep and sparkle! Choose a Cherry Velvet dress with flowers or hearts, like our Brigitte dress in Sacred Heart, for a themed look.
We’re having a Studio Shop on Friday, January 25, 2pm-7pm, and on Saturday, January 26, 11am-5pm – bring your friends and find the perfect outfits for your Galentine’s Day celebration.
