Cute Vegan Lace Up Shoes Alert: American Rag Lila Ghillie Wedge Sandal

Once you swear off buying new leather shoes and bags, you still get pangs of longing when looking at higher end shoes, since 99.99% of them are made of leather or suede. BUT, I have to think of the animals and how they wouldn't appreciate my wearing their skin. So I won't. One of the problems you come across when buying non-leather shoes is the cheapie-look factor. So when you...

AMOUR VERT Brand: Sophisticated Style for the Conscious Fashion Girl

Amour Vert (Green Love in French) is a sophisticated contemporary fashion brand out of San Francisco. Using non-toxic dyes, sustainable fibers and fabrics, this line is committed to a zero waste design philosophy. They say you are what you wear, not just what you eat. Also, for each Amour Vert tee you buy, they plan a tree. Their collections remind me a bit of Marc by Marc Jacobs combined with...

THE REFORMATION: Sexily Reforming the Idea of Sustainable Fashion

Say "sustainable fashion" and most people think it's an oxymoron. It's either a shapeless sack sewn together by some hippies who live on the outskirts of Portland or something in a bright tribal print made by village women in some village on another continent (not that there's anything wrong with that).  Enter REFORMATION, an L.A. based line chic and fashion forward, and with clean, sexy lines. The site explains: We make...

What To Do With Old Leather Clothes & Shoes?

When you decide to stop buying leather, what to do with your fabulous leather jackets and shoes? I decided to stop buying leather about nine months ago, which is pretty recently. Why? Well, it just goes back to being aware of where clothes and shoes come from, and in the case of leather, they're animal skin -- mainly cow, but some lamb, pig, and even mis-marked dog and cat leather...

Lustworthy: Arden Wohl x Cri de Coeur Ethical Designer Shoes

  It's not super easy to find non-leather shoes that don't look like cheap hooker heels worn by strippers for a month before the heel breaks off. Luckily, I just discovered Cri de Coeur, an ethical accessory line that produces some pretty amazing footwear that looks high-end and straight off the runway at NYFW. Add to the mix a their collab last year with Arden Wohl, It-girl philanthropist, filmmaker and activist,...

GETTING (GEM)STONED: using crystals to enhance your life

When you think about crystals and their enthusiasts, you usually envision a woman wearing a flowy skirt and too-long hair in dire need of layers from 1969. Well, dearies, crystal aficionados run the gamut from 1969 woman to modern 2015 fashion girls. I discovered crystals a few years ago and they've been helpful to me in loads of ways. And a lot of my hip friends have copped to carrying crystals...

OMworthy VEGAN BAG ALERT: Matt & Nat

Soooo, one of the hardest parts of going cruelty-free is the handbag issue. For many women, a designer bag is like a security blanket of sorts, albeit an expensive one. But skipping over handbags like Chanel's iconic quilted lambskin and Yves Saint Laurent's Muse patent leather, and consciously choosing something guilt-free, yet still uber-stylish, has been made more palatable by brands like Matt & Nat. I recently bagged (hehe) their...
