And if you happen to be flying solo this evening, and are a made to feel sad about it when you see anything with the tag-line "a diamond is forever", keep in mind that you will soon meet someone special, since love appears when you least expect it, and then you will no-longer have any awesome alone-time when you can wear crappy PJ's all day, and watch Rock of Love marathons without feeling guilty.
So make the most of this night! . . . go to dinner with a funny friend, eat a big cupcake, do a tacky arts & crafts project, redecorate your living room, just whatever you do, DO NOT listen to Last Night I Dreamt Somebody Loved Me by The Smiths, because that will just lead to sobbing, boozing and gothic-teenager-esque melodramatic thoughts of offing yourself (I know this firsthand). If you're going to listen to music, listen to Stevie Nicks, or Marianne Faithfull, who are both smart, smokin' sexy, single broads, who are totally content and empowered by the fact that their most enduring relationships have been with their art. Or read online about awesome sculptress Beatrice Wood (Aka; the Mama of Dada), who preferred not to be tied down by marriage, and had young lovers up until the ripe ol' age of 105!
My list of perfect movies to watch on Valentine's eve:

P.S. Don't forget to check out the two new photo galleries I posted (right column) of Anna Sui's last two collections. At the recent Fall 2008 collection, stylesight.com snapped a photo of me in my favorite leopard coat and '40s tilt-hat, alongside my gorgeous friend Christina Caruso (the fabulous jewelry designer), which you can see here.
XO's + heart shaped boxes to everyone!
