Wear Your Heart on your Sleeve...

The first Valentine was sent in England during the 18th century. Alongside the sentiment and postage, this event culminated in the establishment of not only the greeting card industry but also the ideas and sentiments behind the modern day interpretation of Valentine's Day. It has become the fashion, over the past few centuries, to proudly and ornately express your feelings of courtly love to whomsoever you are dating in a very public, very tangible way. These days celebrations of love exist all around us. And one of the most popular ways of expressing said love is by wearing it. Literally putting your heart on your sleeve. That's why people dress up for special occasions - to make the best effort to look good and Valentine's Day is no different!
