Friday Fashion: The Vegan Edition

As promised, here is the post about beautiful vegan shoes from the Web site Vegan Chic. A big thanks to Anderburf for turning me on to the site in the comments of the previous "Friday Fashion!" According to the site, "You don't have to wear somebody else's skin to be in style!" I am definitely a meat eater (albeit picky about what type), but I appreciate Vegan Chic's ambition and their promise that they "donate a generous portion of [their] profits to multiple animal charities!" So, my friends, revel in the beauty that is accessories!

I know this is primarily a shoe-themed post today, but I absolutely could not pass up including this bag. It is sooooo cute. I am seriously contemplating buying this. At $34.90, I wouldn't feel too bad about purchasing this Vegan Crescent Satchel. It also comes in dark brown and black (which looks silver in the picture)...I know I should pick a more neutral color, but there is just something about this deep, soft red! I'm in love, for serious.I wanted to include something a little different today also, a fashion shout-out to my male readers. These OG Vegan Sneakers by Punk Rose are $42.50. They are so deliciously geek and could easily be dressed down with a pair of jeans and sweatshirt or dressed up with some khakis and a polo. I know Husband could pull these off with nothing else on...mmm...'scuse me, I need a moment...
I kind of hate that I think these $34.99 Vegan Decorative Flats are adorable. They're exceptionally frou frou (not to be confused with the artists formerly known as). But I just don't think I could "Let Go" of these sweet flats. Ha. See what I did there? I used the band Frou Frou's best known song to describe shoes that I think are also frou frou. Oh, I guess explaining what I did kind of negates the cleverness...Moving on...
I had a difficult time deciding whether or not to include this pair of Vegan Sling-Back Wedges, on sale for $18.25, but I finally decided that the detailing was too intricate not to include them. Again, I am not normally a fan of the faux-wood wedge look (although I am wearing a pair today...whoops...), but I love the olive green color and the braiding and weaving and criss-cross texture.
I have a sad, sad penchant for Mary Janes (the shoes, not the pot or girlfriend of Spiderman), especially these $35.99 Mid-Heel Vegan Mary Jane Pumps. Look at the kitten heel! The soft rounded toe! The button-secured strap! Plus, dudes, they totally match that kick-ass bag that I have almost talked myself into buying...
You probably think that these $58.99 Corduroy Vegan Boots are my final fashion faux-pas of the post, but, no, those are coming right up next. I actually think these are kind of adorable, in a Frodo the Hobbit meets the Green Giant kind of way. They look warm (for winter, of course, nothing to do with yesterday's "Shoes that would make my ankles sweat" post) and would provide a nice pop of color during the cold, gray months. Plus, no heels. I have a difficult time understanding heels on boots, because I would buy boots to wear in the snow...and ice seems to negate gravity when one is wearing heels. But I digress: Cute.

Finally, the fashion faux-pas. Every site has them. Vegans are no different. At least I have a sneaking suspicion that no one else really likes these Vegan Pleather Mules either, because they are on sale for $16.00. There is just nothing more unflattering than that wide, flat-ended toe box (or the word "Mules"). They look like flesh-colored flippers. These. shoes. disgust. me. Your thoughts?
