  3. Galentines for sure ! But both are pretty

  4. While I love the valentines skirt/crop combo I'm definitely not as brave as you so I'd say Galentines for sure - that and I'm a closet goth so pink is WAY out of my comfort zone. You, of course, look stunnin' in both!

  5. I'm celebrated both this year! Do I have to pick a fave? I've never been a Valentine's hater. I love pink and flowers and candy, what can I say. Really enjoying your blog.

  6. This is the first year I get to celebrate Valentine's with someone I love, in the past it's always been the end of a relationship, between relationships or long-distance, so this year it's Valentine's, but nothing fancy! Normally definitely a Galentine's girl :-)

  7. I love Galentine's! There's less pressure than gifting for/surprising a significant other for Valentine's Day, and it's nice to thank your girlfriends for being there for ya, and avoid taking 'em for granted.
    Congrats on 500! I'm one of the new additions to your followers and am enjoying your blog and sewing style! Thanks for being a fun source of inspiration. :)

  14. I'm too lazy to celebrate either, heh!

  15. Galentine's is my favorite. It usually involves a lot of sour beers, delicious nosh, and a funny movie!

  16. I reckon Galentines sounds like a better holiday, but I don't really celebrate either - I asked a few of my gal pals and they aren't celebrating either. Maybe we're just sad people, but hey what can you do :-)

    ReplyDelete
  17. I've never thought to do a galentine's, but it sounds fun! My tradition is to buy my partner a cheeky card - none of that mushy poetry stuff here!

  18. I like the gifts of Valentine's and the idea of Galentine's

  25. I love both of these looks! I prefer Valentine's, but only because it's my birthday and I get double presents from my hubby ;)

    ReplyDelete
  26. I keep seeing your pink coat on social media so I had to come see what all the fuss was about :-) Consider me here to stay!

  32. P.S. - congratulations on reaching 500 followers, you have a great blog and make really beautiful things, so I'm not surprised :)

  33. I'm having a hearts and crafts party, so I'll go with galentines

  34. Having never, ever had a date (or even a special someone!) on Valentine's, and being very, very single right now, I think I'm gonna have to go with Galentine's ;)

    ReplyDelete
  35. The best thing about either is the sweets and cake, so it doesn't matter!

  38. my husband is always away for valentines so galentines is the winner for me!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Has to be galentines, I've never been a fan of valentines and my husbands the same. In the 10 years we've been together we've made a point of celebrating the dates that matter to us, not the arbitrary ones. Having said that back when I was a student I always used to celebrate with my friends and had a great time.

  40. I'm more partial to valentine's day...though I do love my gals!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I like Galentine's Day (and-or Palentine's for mixed b&g! Though it's a little similar to Palestine in name). However, this is the third and final year of being across an ocean from my fellow, so next year I might change my mind. : ) Though if we're picking an outfit, Galentine's all the way!!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I love Valentines Day! We don't celebrate our wedding anniversary as it is 2 weeks either side of both mine and my husbands birthdays. So we use Valentines as our surrogate wedding anniversary. But I also love to shower my friends with love so I am adopting galentines for next year. I had never heard of it till this year!
