Tell Intermix to stop selling fur! »
Intermix is a fancypants line of boutique that carries fancypants fashions, including clothing with fur. Grody. Jessica Schlueter and Amy Rebecca of Fur Free Los Angeles are coordinating a campaign to get Intermix to stop carrying fur.
These ladies are talented! They’ve already run three successful campaigns to get Planet Blue, Urban Outfitters, and LF Stores to stop selling fur, which is amazing. So far, their petition at Change.org has over 33,000 signatures, but Intermix is still totally ignoring them. Moreover, it’s New York Fashion Week, when buyers decide on the clothing their stores will carry in the coming fall/winter season. Intermix needs to commit to stop selling fur ASAP.
You can help by (duh) signing the petition. If Intermix considers how many customers the company will lose by continuing to sell fur clothing — as opposed to the massive amount of goodwill dropping fur inspires — maybe this fall/winter season at Intermix stores will look a lot more animal-friendly.
So come on already, sign the petition! And nag all your friends and relations and colleagues and acquaintances to sign it, too! Fur really is the goddamn worst.
I must own these. And these. And these. I have
unique amazing taste in footwear and I think these are the fucking cutest and can’t nobody say boo to me about it. But, uh, Cally, what you think? Vi? Opinions? Meave?
Oh, and there made in Tel Aviv! So cool! And are purposefully vegan because they love animals! AND FREE SHIPPING. Goodbye, monies! It was nice knowing you!
Plantmade: New vegan fashion blog! »
Vegansaurus regular, very fashionable lady, and apparel design student focusing on all things vegan Vi Zahajszky started Plantmade, a blog that’s all about the ins and outs of being vegan and not looking like a scrub. I know you’re incredibly good-looking and well put together but I have two modes: baby hooker, or the bird lady after she’s been electrocuted. Anyway, she’s planning on having guest posts from minds behind the biz, cute and ethical fashion tips, and just generally stylish shit. Check it out! And buy me these for when I want to rock the electrocuted bird lady and baby hooker at the same time:
Time Out New York goes (a bit) vegan! »
Time Out New York has a vegan shopping guide among their many pleasures! It includes MooShoes and Vaute Couture so it’s cool by me. Plus! They have a discount code for many of the shops! Just mention “TONY” and you’re in. “TONY,” get it? Time Out New York! I didn’t get it. That’s why I tell you. Anyway, get on it and buy all the cute vegan stuff in the world and know that your consumerism makes you a better person. True. ish.
Pretty, sustainable vegan shoes with Olsenhaus! »
On Thursday night at “Vegan Glamour in Designers of the Future,”* Olsenhaus presented a brand-new shoe to add to the label. Why a party for just one shoe? Because the designer, Pratt Institute student William Cherwin, won a challenge to create a shoe for Olsenhaus! And isn’t it gorgeous?
Yes, it is lovely, and totally on-point for spring ‘11. Man I love an ankle strap, but we do not all of us have the narrowest ankles, making a thinner ankle strap unfortunately enthicken the ankle it is strapping. A nice thick ankle wrap, like this one here, however, neatly covers all ankles thick and thin, so whether you’re bothered by your ankles or not—and for your sweet sanity’s sake JUST ACCEPT YOUR ANKLES AND MOVE ON, IGNORE MY INSANITY**—these will be terribly flattering shoes. Also, obviously, these shoes are completely vegan, made of sustainable materials, and part of the profits of their sales will be donated to Farm Sanctuary! Can’t argue with any of that. Not one bit of it.
We’ll be able to get our feet into these pretty pretty shoesies when Elizabeth Olsen releases her upcoming collection.
*Why don’t our parties have such good titles? I bet we could get 100 people to attend the dullest party ever if we named it really well.
**Please! All this ridiculousness about ankles! Thank the eras when ladies’ dresses stopped at the neck, wrists, and ankles, and gentlemen were forced to focus their ogling on very small areas of real estate. We should’ve all just been wearing unisex rompers the entire time, then at least we could’ve had equal-opportunity staring.

Cute-ass flyer for Vaute Couture’s hotness in SF next weekend. That’s right, they’ll be in town trying to make San Francisco fashionable. Let it not be in vain, people. I won’t make another sad, sad joke about what messes we all are but damn, let’s at least try. FOR THE CHILDREN. AND OTHER PEOPLE WITH EYES.
So yes! Book an appointment! Get super adorable at a discount! Oh and they’re serving up free cupcakes and tea? Yes, please! Getting hotter and fatter, that’s what we’re all about.
These hella fresh vegan bags are $93 & 30% off when you use the code, “LUCKYBREAKS12” or wait, it might be luckybreak12 (no “s”). Or 15, not 12. One of those. Fancy Nancy reported this breaking news straight from the streets so get on it before they’re all gone. Actually, I have no clue if there are a limited amount, probably not. But it is cute, buy me one? PLEASE?
