15 Best Looks for Valentine’s Day
Valentine’s Day is a celebration of love. Historically, Valentine’s Day began as early as the 15th century. It wasn’t until two hundred years later that the tradition of gifting fresh flowers was added to the holiday.
The French King Henry IV held an extravagant ball for his daughter on Valentine’s Day. The gentlemen in attendance each gave a bouquet of flowers to the lady of their choice (kind of like The Bachelor no?). In this way, ancient Italy, France and England, carried on the tradition for centuries. So on February 14th of every year, we get to whisper sweet nothings to our loved ones over candle-lit dinners.
