Because vegetarians can be beautiful. And fashionistas can care.

Oh la la!

Vegan pleather buckle boots from I saw a pair like these in Teen Vogue, but had given up on them, as they were leather. Et, volia! I found these, almost exactly alike! $49.95
Sorry about the fuzziness! Vegan pleather wedge boots from These are by far the best I've come across. I love the detail, the cut, everything! And the price isn't bad at $39.95

Women's Dress Boot, from Aren't this boots cool? Not the best I've seen, but they're OK. At $99, I've seen cheaper...

Guidelines 4 Shopping 4 Veggies

So, I want to save the animals, but I have no money. It's pretty easy when you have the know-how to create fabulous fashionable vegetarian outfits. Here are my tips:

  • You can still shop high-street. I do. Simply buy bags made of cloth and avoid leather. Simple!
  • So, shoes are SLIGHTLY trickier. I've been hunting for a few months for some meat-free shoes, that I could actually afford and were't hideous. Then I cam across and, both of which are just as afforable as high street shops, and totally cute. Oh, yeah, and veggie.
  • PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, don't give vegetarian fashionistas a bad name by wearing T-Shirts with slogans about animal rights and tofu. I find those soooo annoying.
  • OK, it totally SUCKS that all major big fashion names make their bags out of leather. But I've noticed that most high street shops make their bags out of cloth, as it's cheaper. There: two incentives!

Suma Kashi told me about these FABULOUS shoes from As a girl who's been <3ing Converses forever, I love these even more! They're the same style, but GET THIS, they are: vegan and sweatshop free. Hmm, somehow I like No Sweat even more then Converses!

Stay Ahead of the Game

Haven't you always wanted to be one of those people who wear the fashionable stuff before everyone else? Well, http:// is definitely a good place to start. Seeing as it's actually for fashion designers, you'll be ohso cool. Here are some ways to get the looks that will be big, according to them, on a budget:
*Let's pretend I'm Coco
If you bought a trench coat over the summer, or even a belted mac, you can use that for this look. Just pair it with Coco Chanel-esque hat, and jeans, and you're on your way. (Also in style are tuxedos, also Chanel-esque. But don't wear those, you'll dump them.)
*Geisha Girl
Once again, Asian looks are HOT. Instead of buying a kimono, buy an Asian styled scarf, and swing it around your hips.
*Folk grunge
This is such a easy look to carry off, and is perfect for when you just can't be bothered. Just wear a long cardigan, a fringy scarf, and some jeans, and you've got it!

Vegetarian Fashionista #2

Alicia Silverstone

Clueless star, Alicia Silverstone didn't just make her stamp on movie history, she's also a vegan! Also the voice behind Braceface, the adorable cartoon. And what a coincidence, Sharon (the lead character) is a vegetarian! Did we mention she was the executive-producer for it?! She also featured in Scooby Doo 2. (surprise, surprise, another animal film!)

I totally adore this cute outfit. Hey, she wasn't picked as a vegetarian fashionista for nothing! I <3>All in all, Alicia DEFINITELY deserves the title "Vegetarian Fashionista"!

Vegetarian Fashionista

So, I've decided to feature vegetarian fashionistas on my blog.
Vegetarian Fashionista #1: Pink

Now, Pink is not my fashion icon. But, she has developed a style all of her own. She puts outfits together very well, and (the main reason): she's a vegetarian! (Vegan, actually.) Also, have you seen that jacket?! Very cool. So, that is way Pink is my first Vegetarian Fashionista.


Ever since she refused to perform for Prince Harry of England, because he hunted, Pink has been known as a vegan. I heartily agree with her work with PETA. Let's hope we see more of her! (Also, she writes and sings totally great songs!)

I didn't even know that EXISTED. What not many people know is that nail polish contains all sort of animal ingredients (I won't go into them), so I just decided to use up my nail polish collection, and then not buy any more. Then I found THESE. Again, from

The search for meat-free boots

I didn't actually think cute, meat-free boots existed, but I found THESE little beauties:

I am so in love with them. They're quite expensive, but I soooo want them.

Does anyone know of some cool, affordable meat-free boots? And if anyone says the PETA website, I'll scream. The stuff there is hideous.

Sometimes, to be a vegetarian fashionista

One must forgo typical beauty, and make her own. As in, "WHY can't I find anything that I can use?! Egad, I'll have to make my own.". Does anyone even know what egad means? Anyway, here are a few things that you can use for beauty uses:
*olive oil
Wonderful. Can be used as make-up remover, hot oil treatment for hair (put some in a glass, and put in a bowl of boiling water for ten minutes. Put in hair and wash out after half an hour), and mosturizer for hands and feet.
Mash it up and use for a face or hair mask.
In my bid to fulfill my new years resolution (yes, I'm still working on it. I haven't given up. Though I probably should.) I have started eating yogurt for a healthier breakfast. But, it also soaks up oil from your face. If you don't have an oily face, it mosturizes. Hmm, multi-tasking.


Just because I can never find clothes that fit doesn't mean I don't love fashion. It just makes me long for when I can afford to hire a tailor...
But anyway, here are a few things I've noticed that will be big:
*long denim skirts
are in fashion, big time. Look for ones like the Marc By Marc Jacobs ones. Outta my budget big time, but easy to find on the high street.
*Granny bags.
Mary Poppins style. I've seen them everywhere.
*Trench coats
Whether you choose plain or patterned, these are IN.
Everywhere. Just buy some.
Now, with high street shops, they will only have stuff in fashion, so it helps to know what will be there, so you can work it into your own, funky style...

Veggie Beauty Pick

Lush "Helping Hands" Hand Cream.
*silver star*
I adore Lush. They use no animal ingredients, no animal testing, and they're the most affordable vegetarian beauty company I've come across. I adore this handcream. I have very dry hands, and I'm allergic to lanolin, so of course I love this! My hands are now tres soft. This was my first Lush product, and now I'm addicted!

The Search for Lip Gloss

I found lipgloss! I have yet to buy it, but look! It's the same people behind Lush, my favourite beauty company. Isn't it gorgeous! And the pots!!!!! It is quite expensive (£6.50), but I'm in love! No animal testing, no animal products, and cute. Plus, there's shea butter, which is great for softening lips, in it. I am so ordering it!
