It seems like January lasted much longer than it did, considering the hectic events that took place in just 31 days. As we plow on, we say hello to February, the last month of winter and the poster month for love. Valentine’s Day is mistakingly elitist in its connotations— thought to be reserved only for romance and lovers. In reality, in can merely signify an appreciation for life and the people you hold near and dear. For this reason, let this month be the one where we all embrace the love we find within ourselves and our community. 303 Magazine is here to assist you with a list of style events that will stir the passion one can only find within the excitement of fashion.
