if you were a pill...

I'd take a handful at my will
And I'd knock you back with something sweet and strong
Plenty of time you wake up
In February makeup
Like the moon and the morning star you're gone
Tonight makes love to all your kind
Tomorrow's making Valentines

--the Replacements

Even if you feel nothing but angst and cynicism about the upcoming lovey-dovey Hallmark holiday, you can still get cheered by vintage clothing in shades of pink and red--especially clothing that will help keep you cozy during these last gray and cold days of winter. (Because--no great surprise to those of us in the snowy Great Lakes--the groundhog saw his shadow yesterday.)

Oh and hey: I like you! You're my Valentine all year-round.
