February is certainly earning its membership in the winter club. I am sitting here typing in my neon cashmere wrist warmers! They are proving to be the epitome of practical style. My fingers are free to type and indeed are actually able do so due to my hands and wrists being warm. I know a lot of people, myself included, feel fingerless gloves are somewhat ironic and defeat the object of wearing gloves but, as I found out recently, if your wrists are warm so are your fingers… If you don’t believe me, feel free to buy some of our eye catching neon tipped pairs to find out!
February is also synonymous with Valentine’s Day. A phenomenon that just keeps on growing; well, in other households so I believe! The pressure to buy something ‘just right’ for your loved one can make the art of gifting a minefield for an old romantic. Judging the price (can the monetary value be translated in to the strength of my love?), the content (staying on the right side of ‘romantic’ that is not too cliché) and, of course, choosing something that they might actually like can make even the bravest run for the hills.
Our solution to this? Put together a wish list of our lust worthy knits and share it. Clearly not a very subtle approach but effective nonetheless!
If pink and red be the colours of love, we have it covered. From bright pillar box red, through rich morello cherry to soft baby pink there is something for every ‘Pink Lady’ or ‘Lady in Red’. Or for those of you /us who err towards the denim and grey hues, fear not, we have a fab array of these too. We all come in our own unique shaped package and we should celebrate this in our choice of clothes; something that is clearly illustrated below in our top Valentine picks as chosen by the girls here at Cove.
When we think of love, we always think of others rather than ourselves and our ‘self’ falls to the bottom of what seems a never-ending list. It is just as important and healthy for us to love ourselves, including our bodies, and learn to dress to love our shape and to find pieces that flatter our very own figure. Here at Cove we strongly believe our collection celebrates and embraces our differences; offering a variety of designs to suit us all.
Maybe we should just cut out the ‘middle man’ and buy our own Valentine present…..
