The month for love has officially arrived and we couldn’t be more excited to celebrate Valentine’s Day in the Magic City! This month, we’ve teamed up with two fabulous Homewood boutiques, SOCA and Ambiance, to pull together nine lovely looks for wherever the holiday takes you. And what better backdrop is there than the dreamy and dramatic Alabama Theatre?!

Today’s gorgeous and talented models, Yifan Zhou, Kathleen Costello and Hillary Tidman are three of the Alabama Symphony Orchestra’s female musicians. It was such a treat to get all dolled up with these inspiring ladies! They’re rocking style suggestions for upcoming events, Fleetwood Mac at the BJCC, Casablanca at the Alabama Theatre and the Alabama Symphony Orchestra’s presentation of Prokofiev’s Romeo & Juliet — all of which are the ideal romantic night for you and your sweetheart.

Happy Valentine’s Day, y’all! Now, let’s get to styling.
