VEGAN PUMAS, bitch!* According to Ecoterre, “The ‘Re-Suede,’ which debuted on Friday, is a retooled version that comprises 100 percent recycled materials and a new outsole derived from rice husks.” Environmentally sound fucking Pumas. Let’s rejoice and dance in the streets and shit, for it’s a beautiful day!
I can’t tell where you can buy them, because the press release doesn’t talk about that because, as usual, it’s a useless waste of internet space. Press releases, why you so jankety!? Can anyone find them? I searched “Re-Suede” on the Puma site and came up with jack and that’s about the extent of work that I’m willing to put into this.
*Imagine me saying that like Jesse Pinkman, bitch!
Vegan watch round-up: the omnivore favs! »
You know how the omnivores are always like, “OMG, it must be so hard being vegan!” When really, I’m like, “dude, those greasy potato chips you are enjoying are totally vegan.” Yeah, the omnivores are always doing vegan stuff and they don’t even know it! Like yesterday, I’m sitting around with some omnis when I notice they are all wearing vegan watches! Of course I had to tell them about this!
Ok, maybe people don’t think about watches when they think of things to avoid as a vegan but if you don’t want one of those giant, clunky silver ones, it can be hard finding a watch with a non-leather band. Sure, you can buy a Hello Kitty Swatch or something, but I’m talking grown-up watches! Of course the watch search is also doubly difficult for me because I can barely read analog watches, so I stay strictly digital. I finally solved my problem when I got this beautiful gold (-colored!) Timex from my sister last Christmas.
So digital, baby! Oh, an do not fear, my pals, that is not my hairy arm. I let my friend Kev borrow my watch because he, like all the omnivores, is always sweating my style, and I am as charitable as I am fashionable.
So Kev was wearing my vegan watch but then I look over and my friend Lizzy is wearing this piece of dopeness by Puma (left).
I have to tell you, if Lizzy weren’t 10 times stronger than me, this bad boy would be all over my wrist right now. Shew!
Lizzy’s is by far my favorite but my friend Jessica was sporting this sweet little Casio number (right).
Pretty cute, right? And very smart.
I also had lunch with my brother yesterday when I notice even he’s got a lovely vegan watch! It’s this baby from J. Crew, except his has an army-green strap. It’s pretty hot and simple. He’s stylish like his little sister! He also makes a mean vegan pizza. He’s the best!
I’ve also seen some sweet all-metal vintage watches. I don’t know why they aren’t as popular nowadays, but there are some superfly vintage gold watches out there. And you know me, I love the gold! Gold, gold-colored, I like it all. Go on eBay—ever heard of it?—they’ve got lots of nice gold vegan watches just waiting to caress your wrists! Freaky. But for real, keep an eye out for vegan watches! I love telling the omnis when they’re doing vegan stuff, it gives them some perspective!
