So, sit back, check out our must-have picks, and make sure you stay true to the core beliefs of being your own Valentine: love yourself, cherish yourself, and buy yourself something nice.
Quilted Amalia Lambskin Shoulder Bag ($1,980) by Lanvin
Why we like it: It is hard to say no to such a luxe bag. The quilted leather and chain strap give it a timeless twist, but the pink hue and the bow make it feel oh-so modern.
Goddess Dress ($88) by Free People
Why we like it: Nothing is better than a dress that transitions from day to night. Plus, how can you resist a dress that can be dressed up with heels and jewels or dressed down with sandals and a beach bag?
Dahlia Noir Eau de Parfum ($90 – $110) by Givenchy
Why we like it: With notes of mandarin, pink pepper, mimosa, vanilla, and tonka bean, this fragrance is as intoxicating as it sounds. The floral notes make it perfect for spring, while the warmer notes give it plenty of depth.
Geometric Gold-Plated Ring ($80) by Isharya
Why we like it: This is the type of ring you can wear every day and every night. It is low-key enough to go with your workwear, but glam enough to spice up your next party ensemble.
Chiffon Dress ($63) by TFNC
Why we like it: We love the flirty, feminine vibe of this dress, not to mention how versatile it is. We would pair it with a cropped leather jacket and black pumps for a glam girls’ night out.
Just-Au-Corps Wool-Blend Duffle Coat ($895) by Vivienne Westwood Anglomania
Why we like it: Firstly, this is guaranteed to bring life to your winter wardrobe. Secondly, the draped handkerchief hem and duffle toggles give an otherwise classic coat a playful and unexpected touch, and who can say no to that?
Nail Lacquer in Rose Among Thorns ($7) by China Glaze
Why we like it: Red is such a classic choice when it comes to nail polish. We particularly like how vibrant this hue is—it has an almost-orange tint to it, which makes it perfect for the coming spring season.
Overlap Dress ($650) by Jenni Kayne
Why we like it: This dress feels really fresh, thanks in part to the fashion-forward silhouette and in part to the bold pink hue. When paired with delicate silver sandals, this dress makes a major style statement.
