**Q&A Friday on a Wednesday? What! Have we lost our minds? Don't worry, we will be back to our regular posting schedule next week. Truth is, I am still working on my handbag post for this week and the Q&A was more fun. So here goes:
Q: If you ever come across some sexy, fashionable vegan shoes, let me know, as it's pretty hard to find a pair that don't make me look like a hippy earth mama.
A: It's no picnic trying to find fashionable shoes if you are Vegan. Choosing an ethical and eco-friendly lifestyle, Vegans do not consume or use animal products of any kind. Not only do you need to find shoes made without ANY animal products, you also have to consider the environmental impact right down to the manufacturing of those shoes. When I think Vegan shoes, I think Earth brand as pictured above. I think hemp, flip flops, and gargantuan sandal foot. I don't think style, sex appeal or fashionable, but I have found hope.
If you want stylish, sexy vegan shoes without compromise, look no further than the collection at te casan, designed by Natalie Portman. They are not cheap, but are attainable at $200-$300 a pair. Plus, they are limited edition pieces and the proceeds go to animal rights non-profit groups. How about the strappy red heels to the right? Timeless Style + Sinister Red + Hand Crafted Satin = Sexy Vegan indeed.
If you are not keen on spending that kind of cash, other affordable options include:
Faux Seude Platform at Vegetarian Shoes and Bags on sale for $30.96. If they had my size available, I would buy these in a second.
Sexy Stacked Heel Sandal available at MooShoes, a vegan-owned boutique that sells an assortment of cruelty-free footwear, for $95. Four inch platforms mean serious business.
D'orsay Pump at Vegetarian Shoes and Bags on sale for $32.90. A cutesy retro look.
So there you go. Sexy. Vegan. Shoes. and some new shopping alternatives. And if any of my readers have some advice on Vegan shopping, please drop me a comment!
