xoxo {with love, from the realreal}



Scene: It's 1995, a gas station in Los Angeles.

Thief: Give me your phone. [holds gun to woman's head]
Cher: [hands cell phone over to thief]
Thief: OK, now get down on the ground.
Cher: Oh no, [as she unbuttons her feather trimmed coat to show thief her dress] this is an Alaïa
Thief: [with a bewildered look o his face, now scanning the parking lot to see if anyone is looking at them] It's an A-whata?
Cher: [now rolling her eyes, emphasizing each word] It's like, a totally important designer.
Thief: And I will totally shoot you in the head. [cocking gun]
Cher: [groans and gets down on the ground]

And ever since then (probably much like other girls born between 1980 and 1986 who were obsessed with Clueless) I've pretty much wanted an Alaïa dress. Not so much for the "please rob me" appeal (God forbid), but more so for the timeless sexiness of each piece. So when my go-to designer consignment site, The RealReal asked me to style a look for my "dream Valentine's Day date" I immediately started stalking all the Alaïa dresses I could find on site. I like to think this particular one that I snagged would be perfect for a night of dinner, drinks and plenty of dancing (the twirl appeal is undeniable!). 

As for my dream Valentine's Day date? Let's just say if both Stephen Colbert and Tom Hardy asked me out on February 14th, would I panic about the double booking and say no? As if! Luckily, Valentine's Day falls on a Sunday, so there's always February 13th as well. ;)

Enough of my rambling though, here are a few other Alaïa favorites, all available via The RealReal now. Which would you wear and who would be your dream Valentine's Day date?
