Post-5-3Vegan’s En Vogue at Mizado Well the New Year has started out on one crazy busy note & I’m just beat! With so many things going on, I forgot about dinner plans with one of my besties.  We’d planned on grabbing a bite last Thursday at a mutual DEAR friend’s new restaurant Mizado Cocina. So I quickly pulled out my not so old faithful Blank Vegan flares.  On top I wore my blush American Eagle ruffled sweater.  It was off the charts cold in New Orleans last week, so I wore my faux fur leopard coat & there ya go!  I had the cutest, easiest go-to outfit!  As I’m leaving, I realized I was dressed in head-to-toe “Compassionate Clothing.”  It got me thinking-it’s really just as easy to look fabulous while wearing Vegan garb than it is to wear the real deal.  And there’s no guilt! LOOOOOVE that!  We had the BEST dinner & not only did I feel great in my Vegan flares & faux fur, I didn’t feel guilty about having on my real leather pants or my real leopard coat (which I admit I have both)… There are so many options out there these days, that if you are Vegan (or if you just want to try to be more fashionably responsible) you can totally do it without sacrificing style.  Which poses some questions to my followers-How do you feel about the “Vegan” fashion trend?  Will you be wearing your “investment” leather pieces this year, or the Vegan alternative?  Or both?  Is it about price?  Or about something else?  I would love some feedback, so write me back on my contact page!:)
