Vegan Versions / Iridescent

1 May

STELLA MCCARTNEY // Iridescent Sequined Top$877.48

Though we’re still pretty early into spring, one big trend you can expect to see a lot of this season is iridescent. Iridescent doesn’t necessarily mean sequins and shimmer, but more of a holographic type look which if you ask me is WAY cool!

Vegan’s don’t have to miss out on all the fun. Here’s some of my favorite pieces out in stores that are vegan friendly and rock this trend HARD. Even vegan designer hero Stella McCartney has several items in her spring line which make being vegan and on-trend totally lust worthy.  I kinda want every piece in her shoe collection right now.

Here’s some great high and low budget items to work the trend.

FOREVER 21 // Iridescent Crescent Necklace $6.80

CHARLOTTE RUSSE // Clear Heel Iridescent Lace-Up Bootie $54.50

TOUCH UPS // Tammy Loafer  $37.99

BCBGENERATION // Rockie Dress Sandals $89.00

STELLA MCCARTNEY // Mirror Prism Pump $760

STELLA MCCARTNEY // Faux-Snake Flat Ankle-Wrap Sandal $445

STELLA MCCARTNEY //  Silver Irridescent Snake Print Ballet $395

What do you think of the iridescent trend?


Vegan Fashion Night Out

4 Sep

This Vegan Fashion Night Out post originally appeared last week on my column Vegan Vogue I write for I Eat Grass. If you haven’t stopped by I Eat Grass yet, be sure to do so! 

It’s the time of year fashion fans around the world wait for, New York Fashion Week!

As part of the NYFW events every September there’s  Fashion’s Night Out.  FNO is basically a huge shopping event that happens in cities around the world the week of fashion week.  Mashable has a great explanation on the history of the event, as well as how social media played a roll leading into last year’s event.

Even if you don’t want to buy anything, it’s still a great party to attend.  Most brands have free refreshments and big name entertainment on hand to entice fashionistas into their stores.  It’s also a great place to network and meet people who love the same styles, brands and fashions you love.

I took a quick look at the event schedule for this year’s FNO, which will be on September 6th, for some vegan friendly stops.  All of these picks are within walking distance or a very short cab ride of each other, so it’s easy to make your own vegan friendly FNO event tour.



78 Orchard Street New York, NY 10002

7:00 pm

If there is only one FNO event you can attend this year, be sure it’s the MooShoes event.  I attended this one last year and can personally attest to how awesome it is.  All of your favorite vegan fashion brands including Cri de Coeur, Vaute Couture, Brave Gentleman, and more along with vegan treats from Blossom and Vegan Vine make this an event not to miss!


Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics

174 Ludlow Street New York, NY 10002

6:00 pm to 11:00 pm

Obsessive Compulsive is an entirely vegan makeup brand with a huge following.  I first sampled their products at last years MooShoes event, and their lip tars are pretty amazing.  Highly pigmented, bright, and fun!  They’ll be doing a preview of their Fall 2012 collection, and have vegan cocktails and hors d’oeuvres on hand while you get glammed up.


Free People

99 Spring Street New York , NY 10012

6:00pm to 11:00pm

Free People has been making some waves in the vegan fashion community for their awesome vegan leather collection.  If faux leather is your thing, Free People has some amazing options for you.  They also very recently started carrying vegan Doc Martens and Cri de Coeur.

The first 50 fans to get photographed in their ‘Catch a Dream’ photo booth will receive a Free People iPhone case! Special Free People tote bags + goodies from Mox Botanicals will be given out with every purchase, while supplies last.  I’m not sure if Mox Botanicals products are vegan/cruelty-free so be sure to ask a representative while there.


Stella McCartney

112 Green Street New York, NY 10012

7:00 pm to 10:00 pm

Stella has been a lifelong vegetarian and does not design using any fur or leather.  She’s also a supporter of PETA and has recently done a great campaign on the long-term environmental impacts of leather production.

Stella’s shoes and handbags are to die for, and you can check them out in person at their FNO event this year.  You’ll get to sip on “Eco Mojitos” and enjoy DJ sets from Spencer Product. Guests also get to take their best glamour shots in their custom photo booth, and can also design their very own Stella McCartney hand bag, for one night only!

With so many great vegan-friendly options this FNO, which one will you be going to?
