This is the Stockholm dress by Jay McCarroll, whose online store is open for business today!
Jay McCarroll is the absolute awesomest, his work with colors and shapes is so subtly brilliant. Plus he’s vegetarian, plus his documentary was freaking great, plus he’s from Philly, plus his designs are so affordably priced you can buy multiple pieces and still have money left over for delicious snacks (always save enough money for snacks).
Seriously, his clothes are so pretty and sharp and fun and if I could I’d be buying the hell out of them right now (dear mister jesus, please help me find a job). Color! Cotton! Fashion! I LOVE YOU.

Free People’s vegan leather line! »
Free People makes clothes for the neo-hippie with money. Who else to do vegan leather? Refinery 29 has their lookbook, and on Free People’s site they have an adorable little video with some of their veg designers talking about why they love their vegan leather and how super-duper excited they are to wear it.
Man I am super-duper excited about vegan leather, too. Leather looks cool, leather clothes look really good, except they’re made of death and bad for the environment and that sucks. But vegan leather is the best of both worlds! If you have enough money you can do anything. Look at this dress!
I want to wear it! A lot! Everywhere! With boots and a bright cardigan! Thanks, Free People, like I didn’t have enough of a shopping problem already.
Today only: Matt & Nat on super-sale! »
They have 26 bags—including some adorable wristlets, Megan Rascal’s favorite!—and five wallets on sale and if you have bag-buying money, you should BUY ONE. The sale only lasts one day!
Ideeli is one of those join-to-get-deals sites, so here is a referral from Vegansaurus to you. Don’t say we never did anything for you. Like encouraged rampant consumerism.
Vegan Cuts: discounts for the vegan folk! »
Vegan Cuts launched today with 40 percent off a vegan skin care kit from Moxie Organix! Vegan Cuts is kind of like Groupon but just for vegan stuff. And I know you vegans are some poor mofos! Every good vegan loves a deal, and every girl band deserves funding. Two Universal Truths.
From the company:
Vegan Cuts makes it easy and fun for their members to discover new vegan companies and shop vegan. Member receive weekly emails featuring exclusive deals from vegan companies. Most deals will be open to people living in the U.S., but some will also be extended to Canada or online shoppers.
Vegan Cuts is run by a vegan couple, John and Jill, who want to see more people shopping with vegan ethics. They feel a commitment to buying vegan food is a great start, but know people can also make a positive difference by choosing vegan options when purchasing clothing, shoes, accessories, body care products and everyday household items. This is why Vegan Cuts will feature a range of vegan products and encourage members to shop vegan by promoting opportunities to save money while eschewing animal cruelty.
Vegan Cuts has a referral campaign that encourages new members to sign up and share a referral link with their friends on Facebook and Twitter. The three people who refer the most new members by Apr. 24, 2011 will be eligible to win a gift certificate from Susan Nichole Handbags, a Texas Treat Tower from Nacho Mom’s Vegan Queso and a Coconut Bliss prize pack. For more on the Vegan Cuts referral campaign, read the Vegan Cuts blog post: Refer Friends & Win Awesome Prizes.
Sounds like a good opportunity to BUY BUY BUY while supporting vegan companies. I’m pretty excited! I hope they get SHOES. Maybe they will expand and be a barbershop/coupon website. Because that logo could totally work for a vegan barbershop. Am I right? Or maybe like a vegan plastic surgeon.
Vegan creme eggs, y’all! Of course, not everything is wonderful because they’re in England and currently unavailable but I suggest you bookmark that page and refresh the living hell out of it. At least that’s what I’m gonna do from now until Easter but I’m a freelancer so I ain’t got nothing but time, baby! In completely unrelated news: PLEASE HIRE ME.
In the event that the eggs never available for purchase (I’ve got a bad feeling about this), you can always make your own. Good luck with that, Martha.
UPDATE: Oh snap, they might not actually be filled with creme. I can’t tell! Oh well, I did find where you can actually buy some (and lots of other vegan easter candy, too!) OH and someone posted on the Facebook wall, here are some for real vegan creme eggs to order! From the UK, too. Man, they’ve got that shit on lockdown.
Product review: Food for Lovers Vegan Queso! »
Holy Guacamole*! Food for Lovers vegan cheese in a jar is fucking delicious! It tastes JUST like that bright yellow nacho cheese sauce you get at the movies** but it doesn’t make you throw up after you binge on it! It is a miracle of food science! We live in a truly blessed time, fellow vegans.
The creators of this marvelous product are from Texas (get a rope! sorry, it’s a reflexive reaction brought on by being raised by a television in the ’80s) and so you know they know what’s up when it comes to all things fatty and tasty. Except this shit isn’t really that fatty, but it tastes so rich and creamy! I would buy several jars so you can experiment with nachos, burritos, nachos, enchiladas, spicy mac ‘n’ cheese, and more nachos.
MAKE MEGA NACHOS. How you do this is: you get a cookie sheet, you dump one to two bags of tortilla chips on it, you cover that in a shit-ton of beans, vegan burger crumbles, jalapeños, chopped tomatoes, whatever. Then pour say, several jars of this queso on it and bake at 400 F for 10 to 15 minutes. Remove from oven and dump on buckets of vegan sour cream and guacamole (or just slice entire avocados on it if you’re rich, you rich fucker!) and then eat it all and feel both proud and disgusted (the best combination of feelings). MEGA NACHOS!
Those are not my MEGA NACHOS but I want them very badly.
*I feel like this is something Megan Rascal would adorably say.
**And I imagine state and county fairs and all that good wholesome Amurrican shit but I don’t know, I’ve never been because my parents hate me/America.
Good Housekeeping’s vegan cookbook has ARRIVED! »
Remember how excited we were? Well, NOTHING HAS CHANGED. Except that it’s here and you can order it! Now, go forward and get it for every grandma, grandaunt, great dame, great great grandma, and great grandcousin in your life TODAY. Point is, they should be old. Actually, I’m interested in cooking out of it because I’m dying to make a vegan Broiled Steak with Parsley Butter and serve it in a Jello mold. BAM!
Groupon’s now offering $7 for $15 worth of handmade vegan marshmallows and treats from Sweet & Sara. There’s a limited quantity of Groupons available, too, so you better get on it! You can either pick them up from their store in Queens or have them shipped directly to your ass via your mouth.
YOU GUYS. This means S’MORES! And STRAWBERRY MARSHMALLOWS! and ROCKY ROAD BARK! and VEGAN RICE KRISPY TREATS! and SO MUCH MORE!
