Better late then never!

Here’s some great Navajo inspired cruelty free fashion items that are prefect for the Spring/Summer 2011 season. I totally dig the use of natural earth tones mixed in with bright bold colours. I love the Melie Bianco bucket bag!

Lauren Eglee Vintage Earrings
I personally own about four pairs of these stunning handmade earrings from Lauren Eglee. Lauren’s use of vintage illustrations, goldfill & coloured plastics really do make each pair of earrings in her VI collection one of a kind.
Alexander Campaz’s bold geometric poly cotton fleece sweaters embody two of my fav things comfort & style. I think they’d be perfect for any chic vegan lady or gent to sport on a cool spring/summer eve.

Both head crafter of softspoken Rachael & her fabulous cruelty free knit accessories are très adorable. I’m coveting her brand spanking new bold cotton chevron design necklaces. Softspoken is not a 100% vegan shop so you know the drill read each items materials before making a purchase. All the items featured below are cruelty free.
The Ruffle Shoe
Raleigh Black Vegan Platform Pump • Kobiee Black Vegan Platform Pump • Kizzler Black Vegan Platform Pump

These Fixed Geared Bike Necklaces from Galibardy are utterly the epitome of hiptastic! ‘Nuff said.

Originally Cloches were made from felt which we all know is not very vegan friendly. However, fear not I found a milliner on etsy that makes a few of them out of linen (with vintage buckles!). So if like me you’ve been longing to own a vegan version of this swell hat then just head on over to Bonnies Knitting to see what she has listed. The red linen one featured below is the cat’s pajamas!
