Since I became a vegetarian last year, I decided to transform my lifestyle not only internally but in reality as well. I have recently started purchasing purses that I know are good for the environment but also animal and cruelty free aka vegan. I want to make sure that the beauty products, home purchases and my fashion correlates with how I feel about the planet and animals. I am so glad that I came across a few stores after doing some intense research for vegan purses. I didn't even know vegan purses existed! I thought you could either get animal based purses or just plastic but was I wrong... There is something called vegan leather, cork, woven, etc that is used to create purses as well.
Two stores that I have recently purchased from before are Melie Bianco & Pixie Mood.
Melie Bianco is a store based in LA and had so many different options as far as purses go but I decided to purchase a purse called the Irene Black Bambo Crossbody that consisted of wood and luxury vegan leather. I literally had a cart full of bags because I couldn't decide. My purchase was said to arrive within 4-10 business days. But, I feel like it came fast to me personally. The purse is unbelievably beautiful and I love that I am able to feel like I can do something good for the planet and still look fashionable. The purse is a great size for an everyday purse and let me tell you this bag -- can actually be mistaken for leather. It looks like a leather purse but girlfriend it isn't! I will definitely be ordering in the future and have a closet full of these crossbody purses as time goes on.
***By the way, when you sign up with Melie Bianco as a member you get 50% off their purses forever or if you sign up as subscriber to their store they automatically send you a 50% off coupon. Its all your choice!
The second store that I purchased from was called Pixie Mood which is a store based in Canada and I purchased a pouch called the Nicole Small Pouch that consisted of cork and luxury vegan leather. The purchase arrived within 3 weeks because of the company having so many orders and a delay in shipping. The purse is very nice and I love that I am able to feel like I can run around with a small wristlet and still look fashionable. The store has a discount just by subscribing and that made me even more excited to get the purse! This wristlet was so needed because of how sometimes I don't want to always carry a purse if I am doing grocery shopping or traveling.
The options of colors and styles from these two stores makes me feel like I can transition without feeling that huge change of switching out from beauty and fashion that I see in everyday stores. I wanted to show my readers that just because you are changing a lifestyle you can still make purchases but just in alternative ways. I have a slight purse obsession lol and it was great to realize that I can find alternative purse stores that are vegan and cruelty free. These purchases were well worth it!
