Dream lover -- This cool but cozy cami and pant pajama set by Loungerie, $128.95, gets a little warmer with a pair of Ugg Scuffettes, $60.95, from Earthsavers (5501 Magazine St., 899-8555; Lakeside Shopping Center, 3301 Veterans Memorial Blvd., Metairie, 835-0225; The Premier Center, 3414 Hwy. 190, Mandeville, 985-674-1133;
Cupid call -- Got a secret crush? Send a subtle message of admiration with a pair of bow-and-arrow earrings, $25, in gold or silver from Sorella (2036 Magazine St., 309-6256).
Sash with panache -- With a headband that acts as an anchor, this colorful and clever hair accessory, $14, makes wearing a head sash -- even the slippery, silky kind -- much less complicated, from Gae-tana's (7732 Maple St., 865-9625).
Classic red -- Be sure to give her this one before she gets dressed for the big date night: a below-the-knee Watters & Watters silk dress, $288, with spaghetti straps from Pearl's Place (3114 Severn Ave., Metairie, 885-9213;
Cuff love -- For the woman who dares to dazzle, an oversize, ultra-sparkly costume cuff, $30, is an excellent choice. For a luscious lady who's a bit more low-key, opt for a charmed slide bracelet, $36; both from Fifi Mahony's (934 Royal St., 525-4343;
Sentimental service -- When serving separately, you might not notice the message being conveyed in silver-plate and stainless steel. But together, this three-piece Michael Aramis "I Love U" serving set, $150, says it all, from Thomas Mann Gallery I/O (1810 Magazine St., 581-2113;
