What to do and Wear in New York City
With 100s of amazing restaurants to choose from in Manhattan, its hard to go wrong. But if you want a place truly special and romantic, we recommend Freemans. Tucked (literally) at the back of an alleyway off the Bowery and serving up elevated American fare since 2004, it truly is one of a kind. Make a night of it by starting off with some of the modern art in the area. Take in the Daiga Granita exhibit at the New Museum or go gallery hopping. If youre looking for more to do after dinner, hail a cab to go to Pier 17 for cocktails and ice skating on a heart-shaped rink with views of the Brooklyn Bridge.
This Valentines Day outfit allows you to be comfortable while taking in art without being underdressed for dinner. The v-neck dress and micro fishnet tights add just the right amount of sexy for a romantic date. And the pink jewelry and crossbody add a feminine, Valentines touch.

What to do and Wear in Los Angeles
This Valentines Day if youre in LA, grab dinner and a show. Start at Tar & Roses, voted as one of the most romantic restaurants in Los Angeles. Then see Casablanca in the original 35mm format.

And if youre not ready to end the night after watching the romance of the 20th century, you can always explore the Santa Monica pier with your date.
For this night of romance, take a hint from Casablanca star, Ingrid Bergman. This Valentines Day outfit is inspired by her classic style in the film. Its been updated for the 21st century though, with a slit in the maxi skirt and heels that are made to move in.
