Regardless of how you feel about this holiday, it is always a great time to show your love to those you care about! We want to help you make this Valentine's Day one that is truly about love, from loving the people in your lives to loving those who made the products you are wearing or gifts you are giving. Below is a dress and gift guide for the ethically-conscious couple!

Ladies

I have pulled together two outfits; one is a completely new ensemble, and the other is from a site called ThredUp (get $20 off with this link) which is an online consignment store. There is only one of each item, so if they are no longer available, feel free to keep searching!

Dress: Everlane Silk Tank Dress $88

Shoes: Nisolo Mollie Heel Smoke $248

Necklace: Raven + Lily Petra Geometric Pendant Necklace $88

Dress: Nicole Miller Silk Dress $36.49

Shoes: Nude Tahari Heels $31.49

Clutch: BCBGMAXAZRIA Clutch $41.49

Gentlemen 

Shirt: Navy Oxford Shirt $94

Pants: Everlane Slim Pant $68

Shoes: Taylor Wingtip Walnut $198

Sorry, guys, there's no consignment look for you. There used to be this really awesome site that had menswear, but they decided to shut down and join eBay Valet. Until something like that comes back around, head to your local thrift store!

Gifts

Looking for a creative gift this year? We've created some awesome Pinterest boards (Gifts for her, Gifts for him, Home goods) to help you with all your gift giving needs! If you are looking for more of a typical holiday gift, we have a list of those as well.
