Cri de Coeur and 7 For All Mankind together? Vegan fashion dreams do come true! »
Look what I just saw on Cri de Coeur’s FB page! This bag:
With this announcement:
CRI DE COEUR for 7 For All Mankind sustainable vegan cross body bag launches this month!!!!
The bag is ethically sourced and produced using high quality Italian vegan leather, will be sold exclusively at the 7 For all Mankind flagship stores starting mid October. Since both parties wanted to create an affordable sustainable timeless item, the retail price will be under $100.
OMG the heavens are aligning! There HAS to be a 7 For All Mankind flagship store in NY, right? Sustainable and less than $100 (seriously, under $100 from these people?!)? Yes please!
Side note: who is your dream vegan fashion+regular fashion label pairing? I’m thinking Pucci and Beyond Skin. That would blow my mind.
You want fancy shoes? Refinery29 has a deal for you! Through April 3rd, a $100 credit at Cri de Coeur online will cost you $50! THAT IS 50 PERCENT OFF YOUR SHOES. It is an excellent deal!
Cri de Coeur spring ‘12 line! »
I’ve been waiting for this for months (I’m a very busy girl)! The Hearts of Darkness by Cri de Coeur spring 2012 line is here. There’s a lot of cork, leopard and lace. I’m definitely always a fan of leopard print and the lace is lovely in this collection. As you can see from the bootie (ha) above, which I love, they did a similar thing with the lace as they did with crochet last year. The heels in the collection are HIGH but luckily there’s a lot of flats. You know I get cranky in any heel over two inches. And you wouldn’t like me when I’m cranky! Bonus!: all Cri de Coeur shoes are eco-friendly and ethically produced. Huzzah!

That’s right! From Monday, Nov. 14 to Sunday, Nov. 20, enter the coupon code “VEGANSAURUS” and get 20 percent off your order at Compassion Couture! I personally have my eye on the Cri de Coeur bag below. Shiz is hot!
I recently got to meet Jill and Tracey at Vegan Drinks here in NYC and they are even more adorbs in person. We struck up a convo and negotiated this little deal for you guys! I love “VEGANSAURUS” coupon codes, it’s like we’re famous! First, they name a coupon code after you, then a sandwich, then a whole country! I’m shooting for something near the equator. I do enjoy the sun.
Vegan summer-sandal round-up at Ecouterre! My favorite are these booties by Cri de Coeur; they’d keep your feet cool and far away from the filthy pavement, plus walking on big wooden heels makes you feel tall and powerful.
These are all women’s sandals because no one wants to see a dude’s feet. Put your toes away! Also put away your flip-flops, everyone, they are indoor-only. “But they’re so comfortable and rubber shoes are totally vegan!” They are also tacky and lazy.* Plus there are lots of comfortable shoes out there that you would never wear in a hostel shower. COME ON. What about these flats from Big Buddha? They’re nice and uncomplicated and million times better than a grody flip-flop.
What’s your favorite summer shoe?
*My other strict fashion rules include: no pajamas/workout clothes outside of the home/gym (even the OnePiece!); no Birkenstocks outside the home; no visible undergarments (no one ever died from wearing a slip goddamn it). Unless of course you’re at home, in which case, wear all the flip-flops and see-through blouses you want, you vulgar darlings.
Flats, bitch! Alternative title: Vegan shoes, flats edition »
I can’t recall who, but some reader was like, “Damn, Megan Rascal! Why you always trying to make me wear high heels?! You KNOW my feet are delicate!” So here, dear reader, a flats round-up! These are totally Cally-approved. I swear to your mom.
Cally calls these Cri de Coeur crochet flats “super beautiful.”
They are sweet and pretty, right? Sorry dudes, couldn’t get a bigger picture. I think these are elegant and super summery.
Next, these nice dress shoes from Madden Girl. Cally says, “Pretty cute I don’t love the color.” What she lacks in brevity, she makes up for in punctuation. FYI, they also come in tan, they just don’t picture them on Mooshoes.
From olsenHaus, some nice sandals.
Cally likes these a lot: “Cute!!” That’s TWO exclamation points. I can’t stress the importance of that enough. I’m pretty into these too, I might buy them so leave a size 7.5 for your homegirl.
Now some Beyond Skin jawns. The sizes available are limited on this one. Cally’s reaction: “Pretty I like the low vamp.” I say, “Hey Cally, what’s the vamp?” “The vamp is how far the shoe comes up, so a normal loafer has a higher vamp than the grey ones. A really low vamp is like a shoe that shows lots of toe cleavage.” The more you know, the more you grow!
Lastly, the BoBo Estelle from Bourgeois Boheme.
Cally approved these but she don’t love them. I think they are SHARP! Cally’s official opinion: “pretty OK.” But really, that is a high rating! There’s, “OMG I love it!” Then, “pretty OK.” Then several levels of, “uggo” that I don’t subject you to.
Flats round-up complete! Booyah!
Five vegan heels I’d wear if I hated my ankles »
Alternative title: I get cranky in high heels. But dang it, sometimes I just want to dress like a stripper. Every time I try though, I become a total asshole. A taller, hotter asshole but still, you can’t go around being a jerk just because your feet hurt. But if I were capable of tolerating them, these are the crazy high heels I would wear!
I enlisted the help of my kid sister Cally as she knows everything about fashion (and very little about anything else!). She’s such a dear, the poor girl. Ever since I found the “gmail this” bookmarklet, she gets gaggles of emails asking for her opinion on every vegan shoe from here to outer space. She’s always nice when she responds and tells me all the shoes I like are ugly. Now you too can benefit from her fashion expertise as all these shoes are Cally-approved! Let’s start this party:
Sea Peep-toe Pump from olsenHaus. I actually managed to pick this pair out myself! Cally’s thoughts: “I LOVE these ones. Totes cutes. You could wear them with tons of stuff and they would even be cute with tights in the winter.” Totes.
Galaxy Hokkaido Foster Glitter Pumps from Stella McCartney. These are the hotness, or as Cally phrased it, “they are like wham bam.” Wham bam, indeed.
Glamour Pump from Hearts of Darkness by Cri de Coeur at Mooshoes. This pair I picked out too though it’s hard to go wrong with a black pump. But these are hella tall! And with the amount of whiskey I drink, anything over two inches is just irresponsible. Cally’s thoughts: “They are be-a-utiful. Love a good black pump.”
GoMax Ashland 13 from Lulu’s. Now these shoes are only $31 which normally I would think is a great thing but I feel like that means you will DEFINITELY break your ankle. Cally’s thoughts on these: “Pretty shape.” Word.
Nashira from Neuaura at Mooshoes. OK, these are not approved! They are my wild card that Cally officially rejected: “I don’t like the weird colors.” But they remind me of Mondrian and that’s dope. I’d be walking all around like, Check me out, jerks! What? I can’t hear you over how hot I am! Everyone would really like that.
That’s all for today! Let’s all thank Cally for dropping some knowledge.
