I had lunch with one of my friends today and we were discussing how much the “Vegan life,” has grown over the last couple of years. Going green is now a total lifestyle and some people don’t even know that they are wearing it.

Like TOMS, some of their shoes are 100% vegan; which means that they are all “sustainable” materials that contain recycled, natural fiber and/or organically grown components that are grown or manufactured using processes that minimize negative impact on the environment. (Picture Shown Below)

I love these very tropical and colorful TOMS, they look great with dark or even light denim skinny jeans and a casual cotton top. I would even pair these shoes with a pair of denim shorts and a colorful boho top!

New Free People Resized

Another popular boutique that carries vegan clothing is Free People. The first Free People boutique opened back in 1970 and when owner, Dick Hayne decided to open his second location he changed the name to Urban Outfitter. Then in 1984 customers wanted something more feminine, so Hayne decided to get back to his roots and open various Free People boutiques around the U.S.

These Black Laser Hem Vegan Shorts are one of their most popular “vegan” pieces of their collection. I love them because they can transition from day to night with just a change of shoes from flats to stilettos.

I am completely obsessed with this Nude Double Breasted Vegan Leather Jacket, even though I live in Arizona and rarely need to wear a jacket, it is light enough where I will feel comfortable wearing it in this 100 degree weather. I would pair this jacket with a floral dress and a pair of Vegan TOMS!

Are you vegan inspired yet? If not keep reading…… 🙂

I love this Mata Traders Aztec Skirt, that almost looks like a skirt that I already have in a different color (I wonder if it is a vegan skirt?). This summer you will see a lot of Aztec prints; it’s been really popular in the East Coast and now making it’s way to Arizona. I like to pair my aztec prints with solid colors; for example, if you are wearing an aztec top, I would then pair it with a solid color on the bottom because your don’t want to over do it.

I hope all of you enjoyed my blog post today on Vegan Fashion…special thanks to my friend January for putting this idea in my head!

Style On Peeps!

    HI Rochelle,
    I love you your blog! I’m graduated last year from high school and figured I’d take the year off to model but while doing that I realized what I really want to do is be a stylist.
    Is there anyway I can shadow you for a couple projects or intern for you? Hope to hear back from you, have a great day!
    -Allison
