Cute Bags Without the Baggage

Last Thursday was Fashion’s Night Out. Maybe you were lucky enough to get to get down to MooShoes in Lower Manhattan and check out the pop up shop of Cri De Coeur and Vaute Couture as well as the shop’s great everyday inventory of vegan shoes and accessories.

I’m happy I was able to. I splurged on a cute piece of vegan arm candy, left, at 15% off and got a free lip tar from Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics with purchase. In addition, I got the chance to chat with Vaute Couture’s newest intern, Patricia, about eco conscious fashions and the challenges of making ethical decisions in this economy.

If you couldn’t make it to MooShoes, check out their selection of shoes, wallets, belts, handbags, shirts, jackets, books online.

If you’re not the biggest fan of online shopping, the store offers two shoe brands, Madden Girl and Saucony that are readily available at large chain and department stores like DSW. Before you buy, prepare yourself and check the box, please.

Animal-friendly may be easier to find than you think, like this adorable purse, right, from Rampage I spotted at TJMAXX.
