St. Valentine falls on Carnaval. Or what (and who) falls on who (and what)?

Yet another 'compare & contrast' visual exercise & the continuation of the previous post on the double-faced nature of all of us.
So in the past few weeks I have been feeling, quite a-typically for me, like the white angel on the left. The femme fatale days wrapped in black lace seemed to be the thing of the past.
Still, old habits die hard & I felt uneasy admitting that I was going to Paris for St. Valentine's. Now, the trip wasn't planned for that reason but since I was going I wanted to stay longer and extending my trip ...extended it all the way to the romantic day.
Luckily for me though this year St. Valentine's coincides with Carnaval.
Last year I was in Rio - Carnaval in Rio, by the way, contrary to the New Year in Rio which is hugely overrated, is something that everyone should experience at least once in their lifetime!!!
This year I will be back to the 'origins' - Parisian Carnaval, and its theme is "Improbable couples"...
So February 14th you will see me not in white lace but in black lace, back in my cruel seduction mode (huge exaggeration on my part here, be warned!)
Wearing a mask and all that... only to hide my face that has changed becoming more sweet, for if before I was pretty much all 'black' inside, now I am made of pure white lace but I am still trying to fight this new feeling....
The Battle of Love & Chastity. Let the Chastity win (for once in my life) & the Love will follow!
