Did you know there are tons of vegan leather handbags available from mainstream designers? My tote bag is from Steve Madden! This one is sold out but I linked a similar one. I’m so happy to see so many vegan fashion brands popping up all over the world. However, they’re still a bit difficult to find, especially if you don’t know where to look. I’m going to be introducing a whole lot of these brands here soon but in the meantime, you can find lots of vegan handbags and faux leather shoes from brands like Steve Madden and Forever 21. Even Topshop has cute vegan pieces. My sweater looks like it’s wool and it’s super warm but it’s 100% wool-free, which means it’s also cruelty-free, yay! Let me know in the comments what vegan and cruelty-free pieces you’d like to see and I’ll add them to my list to share soon. Also, make sure to sign up for my newsletter for updates on fresh new vegan fashion brands and giveaways!
We’re still in Utah and it’s been pretty chilly the past few days. I was looking forward to the cooler weather so I packed these over the knee boots and this cozy, knit cardigan. You guys, these boots are THE best. If you’re like me and have a really hard time finding over-the-knee boots because you have gigantic calves, then these are the boots for you. They stretch a lot but aren’t loose at the top and the half zipper on the back makes them super easy to put on. These are hands down my favorite boots. I also love the thick heel, they give you a little more support and makes them quite comfortable.
Last week, when we shot this look, the chill of winter had yet to set in. I was warm and cozy with my knit tunic and cable knit scarf. These days, I’ll definitely be throwing on a coat over this. Freezing temperatures make me want for nothing more than to curl up with a good book and a warm drink- this was the inspiration behind this look. You guys won’t believe it but I found this book purse clutch at Marshall’s for $7, for realz. I pop into Marshall’s every now and then just to browse. About 95% of the time find something I really love. I get a large portion of my kitchenware from there as well as home decor finds, clothing, and accessories, of course. These MIH jeans are also a Marshall’s find! I’m new to MIH but have found the extra long length (5′ 10″ and wearing 5″ heels!) and curve-hugging stretchy-ness of these jeans amazing. I’ve been perusing MIH online to grab a couple more styles.
The past few days have just flown by! New projects, furniture shopping, and work have me feeling dizzy! While it’s exhausting me to pieces, it’s also quite exciting. I can’t wait to share some fun new things I’m working on from some of my favorite Etsy shops, it’s going to be so good! We shot these images this past Saturday and I wasn’t able to get them up until now because I’ve been planning and shopping for the house. I’m hosting Thanksgiving this year so I have one month to fill my new house with furniture, decorate it, and tackle the ever increasing chaotic mess that is my home office; all while maintaining my current work flow. The anxiety is kicking in just thinking about it. Getting back to these images, it was late in the day when we decided to shoot these. We were so stretched for time but were able to get a bit of light as the sun was setting. That’s why the first image looks so different from the rest. Even though we were so pressed for time, I just had to shoot these shoes. I found them on Poshmark. They’re by Yves Saint Laurent, one of my favorite designers. These little gems are my new obsession and I can’t wait to style them again.

Los últimos días han volado! Nuevos proyectos, comprando muebles, y el trabajo me tienen mareada! A pesar de que me está agotando tanto, es también muy emocionante. No puedo esperar para compartir algunas cosas nuevas divertidas en cuales estoy trabajando. Son cosas que vienen de algunas de mis tiendas favoritas de Etsy, les van a encantar! Capturamos estas imágenes el pasado sábado y no via sido capaz de publicarlas hasta ahora porque he estado planeando y comprando cosas para la casa. Este año, yo so el anfitrión del dia de Acción de Gracias, así que tengo un mes para llenar mi nueva casa con muebles, decorar, y poner en orden el desastre que crece cada dia en mi oficina. Aparte de todo eso tengo que mentener mi flujo de trabajo actual. Me da ansiedad en sólo pensar en ello. Volviendo a estas imágenes, era tarde en el día cuando decidimos fotografiar este atuendo. Estábamos muy cortos de tiempo, pero pudimos conseguir un poco de luz un poco antes de que el sol se fue. Es por eso que la primera imagen se ve tan diferente del resto. A pesar de que estábamos tan cortos con el tiempo, tenía que fotografiar estos zapatos. Los encontré en Poshmark. Son de Yves Saint Laurent, uno de mis diseñadores favoritos. Estas zapatillas son mi nueva obsesión y no puedo esperar para fotografiar las de nuevo.
