Vegan Shoes Out of an Old Movie from the Good Guys Spring Collection, and Musings about my Raw Foodism

an imagined vegan banquet

Hello Hello.

I have two great great posts coming up. Two interviews with some awesome vegan people. I know you will enjoy….

In the meantime, I am home on a Friday night, browsing the net to see what the latest happenings in the vegan shoe world are. Despite all the great companies that make great “intentionally vegan” shoes and all the cheap shoes that are “unintentionally vegan”, I still am often frustrated by the slim pickings in the vegan shoe world. You see so many cool leather shoes, and so few cool NON LEATHER shoes. I hope one day, much nearer in the future than we think, that reverses.

I have completed 1 week of raw vegan food, by the way. It was such a great experience. I now I am eating healthy foods primarily, for maybe the first time in my life, even though I have always considered myself a very healthy eater. I am really eating fruits and vegetables now as the staple of my diet. I love it. I feel like I gained so much knowledge in the last two weeks of what nutrition really comes down too. Natalie’s advice was spot on–Victoria Boutenko and Ani Phyo. Get their books. They are the best!

Ok on to more exciting news. Well, I don’t want to sound like an advertisement for any company, but I really like the Good Guys shoes. I like their whole menswear, quirky, vintage movie, aesthetic. I was, no joke, so excited when I saw their new spring line coming out. It is so cute. See for yourself.

If you are a reader from way back, you know I love my vegan saddle shoes. I wear mine all the time. I wish all vegans could be recognized by the fact that they only wore saddle shoes, lol, jk.

My favorite of the collection has to be those pink shoes! I love them. I love cotton candy pink.

They also have colored loafers, my other shoe staple. But my favorite is the white loafer. This is really a Woody Allen, vintage movie kind of shoe. Love it.

Ok well, I could go on. But get ‘yer vegan shoe loving butts over to their website and check it out yourselves, if you so desire.

Hope you all have a happy weekend. I think there is some big vegan bake-off in NYC this Sunday. Anyone planning to attend?

Vegan Cambridge School Satchel

Hello Everyone,

Over on my Facebook  Page I posted a pic of a vegan bag that I have always wanted that I now own.

A faux leather, vegan Cambridge Satchel.

I got it at H&M for $29. It is great quality–well it looks nice at least.

They have them in all different colors including polka dots, but I usually go for the classic look.

Just a little tip for you all if you’re into it.

These non leather school girl satchels remind me of the post I did on Saddle Shoes.

It also reminds me of this amazing PBS tv show I saw called Frontier House where they made families go back in time to a log cabin on the Frontier, like Little House on the Prairie. Highly recommend it!

Happy Monday to you all!
