Valentine Look No. 3

 
Oscar de la Renta Spring 2016
 

There's six days to Valentine's Day and my next inspiration for a Valentine look is by the great Oscar de la Renta. This gown from his Spring 2016 may be a bit to ritzy for say, a date at The Olive Garden, (btw I hope your date is taking you to a far better place than The Olive Garden) but I believe pink and black lace is a great combo for a romantic date. 

I'm quite obsessed with this pink! I simply mixed quinacridone magenta and titanium opaque white. It's beautiful! I then thought of playing around with texture and added some salt to the wet paint. I learned this technique in my second year of college. I wasn't too fond of it then cause I couldn't see using it with my style, but I guess things change. So here this lady is, shimmering in pink. And I hope you shimmer in pink or red (or whatever romantic color seems fit) this Valentine's Day.
