We are coming up on the New Year, which means its time to think about what we want to get out of the next 365 days. There are so many different goals to work towards, whether it means helping yourself or others, and resolving to make better ethical choices is a great way to go; but you don’t have to wait until January 1 to be a more conscious consumer . That’s why we’ve made a list of some gorgeous, ethically made dresses for you to wear to your holiday parties this season – and for you to inspire others while you celebrate.
