Well Beauties, Welcome to the new decade!
We hope your festive season was filled with fun, gifts, food and yes - love!
It's that time of year when our thoughts start turning towards that heart-filled day - Valentine's Day! At B&C HQ we all enjoy a saccharin sweetness on Feb 14th, and we've got a fabulous range of cupid struck outfit ideas for you! Whether you're coupled-up or revelling in Singledom!
Maybe you're not into the smushy stuff, or you'd rather celebrate the glorious women in your life with Galentine's Day? Or maybe you're a rockin fella looking for some loved-up alternative inspiration? Don't worries, Beauties! Read on, because Bow & Crossbones has you covered.
Looking forward to a night in with your other half? We know not every celebration means a wild night. Stay in and stay comfortably stylish in this little number - team our new Beau Dangle Bakelite Reproduction Heart Brooch in Dusty Pink, with matching Elsie earrings & bangles with a splash of Maisie in Pearl! If you want the best of both worlds, why not eat dinner at home - but go out for drinks and dessert. Forget the reservations and the meal on the town! Cook a delicious, romantic meal together at home. Head over to a nice bar for dessert! You'll be styled and ready to go.
If you're just not into celebrating with a meal at all, why not look for free or inexpensive entertainment? You can find quality entertainment for two on the cheap and who doesn't love any chance to dress up?! Museums, local theatre companies, art galleries, and food and wine tastings can all be both entertaining and inexpensive.
This Freddies of Pinewood top is perfect for wandering the town, arm-in-arm with your beloved! Build a romantic stack of Krystal Prystal, Elsie and Black Imogen bangles. Then finish your look with our all-new Beau Heart Earrings and Belinda Bakelite Reproduction Love Heart Brooch for pinup perfect style!
Then there's the date itself! (Or even finding a date!) Valentine’s Day might officially fall on February 14th, but why not consider celebrating the following day... when restaurant bookings, flowers, and cards will probably be a little lighter on the pocket. Better yet, if you want to celebrate ALL the love in your life - celebrate Galentine's Day on February 13th! Grab your besties, get your glam on and honour your stylish gal pals.
Our Beau Dangle Bakelite Reproduction Heart Brooch also comes in a rich black shade which really POPS against this top by Freddies, and matches perfectly with our Imogen and Elsie bangles - plus our bestselling Iris Fakelite Hoops! We've included our Lulu Drawstring Bag to make sure you can stash all your goodies for the evening. Roomy enough to store you phone, tissues, makeup topups and credits cards, just in case! That said - you might not need too much cash! Many restaurants now offer discounts to groups of Galentines going out. A quick Google search in your area could well pull up drinks specials for single friends celebrating together!
Obviously you can wear your heart on your sleeve year round. There's no need to keep all your love for just one day of the year! No matter how bleak the world may seem, any excuse to celebrate love -- whether romantic or platonic -- is a good thing. With so many wearable pieces in our Valentine Collection, you'll be looking lovely whenever you want!
Our Bonnie Arrow Pin Brooch can be bought singularly or as a set of three. Style it up or down or mix and match with the other brooches in our range! This kind of versatile piece is the perfect addition to your accessories stash.
Whether you're celebrating the Big V-Day, Galentine's Day or just treating yourself to a spa day - we wish you nothing but LOVE! In fact, keep your eye on your inbox, Beauties... we'll be announcing our very special Love is Love Follow Along very soon. A fantastic chance to win some B&C goodies!
