Be My Vintage Valentine

Happy Valentine's day. If you're not the type for romantic plans, I hope you at least enjoy some chocolate or the fact that it's Friday. Today, we're taking a stroll through the past fashion of Valentine's day from the cards to the magazine covers to the pin-ups to the advertisements (after all, what's Valentine's day without ads).
