--By Jules Newmark

So the big day of love is coming up in about a week - you excited yet? Well I am going to Las Vegas with my boyfriend and a group of friends and I'm definitely excited - I mean, what's not to love in the city of sin? My biggest fear of the trip? What the heck am I going to wear??? Well, I recently discovered a new designer that might just quiet my clothing nightmares... Dana-Maxx, which I covered back in November to feature her new fall line.

This designer not only interned for Betsey Johnson and still came out with her own style, she also freelanced for Marc Jacobs, which has given her a solid background for the business as well as the fashion side of the industry. The philosophy behind the contemporary line is "ultra-sexy, flirty, sophisticated and feminine pieces that can be worn alone or coordinated." Can I say, perfect for my trip or everyday life? For this occasion, I'm thinking of the "Love me Knot" dress or the "Pucker Up Skirt" with a cute cardigan. I think any boyfriend would totally approve! Check out your new outfit at

Now for the shoes to match... this could be a follow up nightmare if I didn't do some homework. But luckily, my study skills are still intact. Have you seen It's the perfect site to identify amazing shoes you want but can't figure out the brand. When you're watching a red carpet event and see some flashy Balenciaga shoes, sometimes you're just not sure if that's the brand, so how will you ever implement them into your life? Well Shoe Bunny does the work for you. I'm going to go with the python Jimmy Choo "Glenys" model... the hot zip-up strappy sandal you might have seen in the Jimmy Choo ad where a model is posed in a bath tub and the heels are the only thing that pops out. Of course, in green animal skin - they're fabulous! The best part of this shoe finder is that it identifies where to buy the shoes, what model they are and of course what celebrity is wearing them at the moment. For this Valentine's Day, I'm all set with Dana-Maxx and shoes for days... what are you going to wear?!
