Will You Be My Lockdown Valentine? 10 Dresses To Heat Things Up

Let's be real, we're all fed up of 2021, and it's only been two weeks. The world is falling to pieces, covid-19 is sadly raging on, Kimye is no more, and Trump somehow still hasn't been impeached? If news of the vaccine hadn't popped up, we'd really be grasping at straws.

It feels like a nightmare with no end in sight, and all hope does seem to be waning, doesn't it? While it couldn't possibly get worse (*nervously touches wood*), most immediate plans for setting foot out the door seem to have been shelved. BUT, and I stress, B U T - there's no reason to get creative? And since when did they cancel dressing up? I didn't get the memo!

If you haven't noticed, we've become knowledgeable experts, oracles of expression, what have you may by now - given we've spent almost a year in and out of lockdown. Birthdays, anniversaries, festive seasons, etc have all been spent in grim lockdown. Zoom and WhatsApp video calls have become godsends, and well, we've have had to make do with the living room as source of all socialising. What I'm trying to say is, we can't cancel Valentine's Day! Sure, we can't paint the town red and book a table for 2 at the fanciest, most intimate and incredibly low-lit restaurants, but we can recreate a magical evening at home - even if you're date isn't in your bubble, haven't you heard of Zoom dates? They're totally a thing now.
