Shop Like You Give A Damn - A Fashionably Vegan Blog: Times They Are a Changin'

This month our vegan fashion maven, Marcia Masulla, shares another fabulous cruelty-free company with us.  Wait until you see these shoes!  There's at least one pair in my very near future.   Marcia proves once again that being vegan doesn't mean you have to sacrifice your sense of style. Did the snowy slush lose its luster awhile back for you too?

O-V-E-R it.

Mother Nature is just another moody broad so by now, most of us fail to be shocked by school closings due to ice one week and sun-kissed walks at Shelby Bottoms the next.  On March 13, daylight savings time will help us spring forward with a bit of momentum so that we may shed the layers of heavy fabrics and all that pent up energy too!

Here is my splendid sustainable style flavor of the month that will surely have you motivated to truly make an impact with your choices.

WARNING: It is very probable you will be overwhelmed with giddy excitement! Just sayin’.

How about ordering up some Cri De Coeur with a side of SALE items?

Parsons New School of Design alumni Gina Ferraraccio and Julie Dicterow joined forces to form Cri De Coeur (French expression that translates literally to “cry from the heart”) a completely animal free company that is committed to educating people about a vegan lifestyle.  This affirmation in the brand’s mission statement couldn’t make a better point:

“There is a shift in attitude about how we define 'style', with a growing awareness in the increase of pollution, deforestation, global warming, and resource depletion that is rapidly destroying the planet. The simplest way to help reverse these devastating statistics is by adopting a vegan lifestyle.”

The sexy Lorena is comprised of faux suede and studs which offer up visual interest without the cruelty! Originally priced at $280, move fast and you can scoop them up for $140. These vampy little kicks can take you from a luxe dinner to a late night of flirting with the band…

The Spring collection for Hearts of Darkness include the Shag Fringe Slouch Boot which is available in 3 gorgeous shades: umber, eggshell, and classic black too!

These are made to look already broken-in with soft faux suede and vegan leather upper.  At a very affordable $155, even Nancy Sinatra would be proud.

Classic round toes mean your tootsies won’t be in a pinch in this high contrast version that will always get you noticed… and who doesn’t like to be noticed? There is no excuse to pass on these especially with a 50% off price tag!  Original price: $310 and priced to move at $150.

X to the O! Marcia
