5 Pretty Red Valentine’s Day Dresses for Under $50

red dressI like the idea of dressing up for Valentine's Day. I find myself wearing the usual rotation of skinny jeans (or leggings) on a daily basis, so it's nice to break out of my rut for a special day -- even if we are just staying home and eating pizza after the baby goes to sleep.

But at the same time, I don't want to break the bank on a "special occasion" dress since I'll likely only wear it once or twice a year. I want stylish and cheap. Is that so much to ask?

Turns out, no! There are plenty of pretty red "Valentine's Day" dresses out there. Here are 5 Valentine's Day dresses for under $50. Score!
