This week only: Vaute Couture shirts on sale at Vegan Cuts! »
What time is it? SHOPPING TIME. And as a thoughtful, stylish vegan consumer, you want to give presents that your friends and family will cherish forever. Or, you want to buy yourself stuff because you’re tired and it’s only Tuesday but it’s almost December, where does the time go, you deserve a present.
Vegan Cuts to the rescue! This week only, they’re selling two Vaute Couture tees for 25 percent off! One style is brand new! They are both adorable, made of sustainable, fair-trade materials, and really the biggest problem here is deciding which one you want, because you’re limited to one per person.
Maybe get your friend to buy one and you buy the other and you can share them! Or convince your relations that they should buy one of each style and give them both to you! Or, you know, buy one as a gift for someone you love, because now is the season of being less selfish.
The deal expires this weekend, so get to Vegan Cuts and buy a shirt! Only if you like deals and shirts, though. Maybe saving money and putting fabric on your body aren’t your things. That just means more awesome clothes for the rest of us.
Vaute Couture at Loving Eco! »
Loving Eco, a site I am currently addicted to, is having a special on this super-cute Vaute Couture tank! I have a similar one and it is totes sexy.
You know I love Leanne and Vaute Couture so I had to share the good news. I’m also seriously obsessed with Loving Eco. It’s like Gilt Group for vegans!
The new Vaute Couture collection is here and it rules! All the new coats are available for preorder right now BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE: they are 45% off until the first! Holy cannoli. That’s a good fracking deal. I just ordered the Belden because I wanted one before but they were sold out. But they made more! Happy day!
Yes, it’s August. But you will need a coat eventually. Unless you are a total thug and do the t-shirt in winter thing. Get down with your bad self, you cold-hearted bastard.
BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE! I got this email from Jenith at VC just as I was finishing this post:
Today I am specifically writing to you about Vaute Couture and their their upcoming A/W 2011 Collection: North American Grand Tour. The super sweet Leanne Mai-ly Hilgart, founder, is setting up one on one appointments and pop-up shops across the country for pre-viewing and to preorder this seasons coats, at special tour SALEprices!!
This is one of few times the public gets to view the entire collection first hand, be offered awesome sale prices AND meet Leanne.
Vaute Couture is coming to : LA, San Francisco, Portland, NYC, Chicago, Toronto, and Montreal.
Vaute Couture is coming to San Francisco* to show us their fantastic, adorable, sustainable new coats! Specifically, they’ll be at VegNews fancy and gorgeous new headquarters and there will be champagne, sparkling cider, and Fat Bottom Bakery cupcakes! So delightful!! You have to make an appointment for a 20 minute slot on either September 2nd or 3rd, so get on it before all the good times are taken and you’re left out in the cold with NO BEAUTIFUL WARM COAT TO KEEP YOU WARM. Don’t worry, when you’re appointment is done, you can eat more cupcakes and drink more champagne on VegNews beautiful sunny roof and toast your good fortune! We’re all so lucky and pretty! Yay us!
*They’re also going to Los Angeles and Portland on their west coast tour so if you live somewhere else (that’s L.A. or Portland), despair not!
Top 10 links of the week: an extravagant dance through veganism! »
[Hilarious picture my grandpa sent me, from his friend: “People living in Colorado Springs wondered why their rainwater barrel was almost empty every day. They set up a couple of cameras and look what they caught on film”]
I meant to post this a while ago: an interview with the lovely Leanne from Vaute Couture!
FitSugar has a list of five books to help you go vegan. Did your favorite make the list?
I stumbled upon this site, Keep it Wild, that has a great article about what to do instead of going to the zoo. Let’s go do this stuff!
Time's take on this bullshit about banning undercover filming at factory farms.
Did you “like” my Megans United to Save Megan the Lab Chimp page yet? You don’t have to be a Megan. Let’s start a revolution!
Did you see this shit about arsenic in chicken? What. The fuck.
My discussion topic of the week: Did you see this piece in HuffPo about why veganism makes non-vegans so angry? Why do you think they get so angry? I think they are bitter because we are morally superior! In my humble opinion.
This Dish is Veg responded to the HuffPo piece by defending the omnis. What do you think?
WTF. This resort in Singapore captured a bunch of dolphins to entertain guests. It’s super sad. Two have already died. Sign this petition! Because that’s bullshit.
Care2 has an article on butterfly first aid! Did you ever imagine such a thing?!
For the grown, sexy and vegan: new tanks and tank dress from Vaute Couture! »
Yay Vaute Couture! They added this new tank “dress” to the line! I think they are using the term “dress” loosely but if you are daring, you can do it. I believe in you! There’s some new tanks too. I actually own one of the heather racerback tanks and it is damn sexy. I accidentally wore it to work the other day (I get dressed in the dark) and it basically caused a riot. A riot of disapproving looks! Just kidding, I had them drooling. You know how I do!
I had the pleasure of meeting Leanne Mai-ly Hilgart, founder of Vaute Couture, at the prom this past weekend. The girl can dance! Actually, dancing with her is the last thing I remember from the prom. After that, it’s pretty fuzzy. You know how I do!
Vaute Couture is having a BIG sale! Get up on that, fools. Coat season is coming to an end in New York but I hear it’s über-cold in SF! Besides, they got some jackets for us non-West Coasters and hey, it wouldn’t kill you to plan ahead! If history is any indication, winter will be cold.
Organic milk isn’t organic, Vick is a hero and cats wear sweaters, all in this week’s link-o-rama! »
It’s 108 cats in sweaters! And one in a poncho. Let the cat-abuse comments commence!
Over at Pinnacle, read about a study that shows fur is NOT green! Hey Cananda, ADOY!
Michael Vick is getting a “Community Inspiration Award” from some organization in Virginia. I don’t want to talk about it.
Make sure you check out Victoria Moran’s Huffington Post piece about vegan fashion and how far it’s come. She mentions Pinnacle, Vaute Couture and OlsenHaus! Vegan fashion in full effect!
Head over to Grist to read just how organic Horizon milk isn’t. You can’t green-wash the devil!
On Meet The Shannons, you will find this super cool recipe for vegan fried pickles, a necessary part of your vegan Fat Tuesday celebration! What? You weren’t planning a vegan Fat Tuesday celebration?! DO YOU HATE JESUS?! AND BOOZE?! Get to planning!
Here’s a Q & A with Manifest Vegan from Vegan Consultant! I like the way she says this: “I see veganism as not just a diet, but a rejection to any non-human animal use.” Phrased like that, we don’t have to hear any BS challenges about women’s breast milk!
CNN writes all about a screening of Forks Over Knives in Atlanta. It’s a pretty boring read. Why can’t everyone be as funny and entertaining as I am?! But guess what! Dr. Esselstyn was there! I’m so jealous! He did a Q&A after the film and spoke a little about the intentional absence of the v-word. If you recall, Chow Down avoided it, too. Hey! We’re here! We’re vegan! Get used to it!
Have you been keeping up to date on the dead bottlenose dolphins washing ashore in the Gulf of Mexico? It’s up to 80 now, half of them newborns or stillbirths. WTF! Is it connected to the BP oil spill? It’s difficult to say. In my opinion, the answer is very simple: IT’S ALL BP’S FAULT AND THEY CAN GO DIE!
Let’s end on a high note! The Humane Society is having a “Dogs of Valor" competition! Go read some super awesome stories of dogs rescuing people and vote for your favorite! Honestly, I can’t decide. And I feel this will be the most important decision I make all day. Le sigh.
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.
Matt & Nat, Vaute Couture on sale at Pure Citizen! »
Pure Citizen, which is like Gilt Groupe for eco/humane/fair-trade/etc. companies, is featuring vegan products! Every week they choose a nonprofit to highlight, and this week’s is Peta, so all their merchandise is vegan. Vaute Couture stuff is on sale until tomorrow; Matt and Nat until Friday, Feb. 11 (the sales last 72 hours). They also have a sale on cool vegan perfume company A Perfume Organic—I’m into their graphic design.
You have to register to even look at the stuff but it’s super-simple, you just have to put in your name. Bam! Easier than spotting a beard in Williamsburg. Still annoying but they say that’s the only way they can offer these LOW, LOW PRICES! So just register already, GOD.
