Vegan Fashion Line Vaute Couture

Vaute Couture vegan fashion

Vaute Couture “spelled for Haute Couture with a V for vegan, but said like VOTE” is an awesome vegan fashion label founded by former Ford model, Leanne Mai-ly Hilgart in the summer of 2009.

Leanne has had a passion for animals and the environment since she was 10 years old and became vegan when she was 17. This girl cares!! In addition to using faux fur and leather, she also uses organic, recycled and high-tech fabrics. Her mission is to take animals out of the fashion equation and she was the first all vegan line to show at New York fashion week.

The line has a little vintage/hipster vibe and consists of tees, sweat-shirts and really chic jackets for the Fall/Winter. Definitely what the brand is known for!  Check out a few of my faves below and you can shop the site as well.

My Little Green Shop Vegan

My Little Green Shop is a hip, vegan fashion e-boutique geared for eco-conscious families.”

They carry tons of products for the entire family and everything is eco-friendly but since we’re talking about fashion, let me just say the kiddie clothes are adorable and reasonably priced! They have a nice variety of shoes and accessories as well!  Based out of Vancouver, Canada they are a small family owned and operated e-store that takes a lot of pride in the products they carry, as every new brand is thoroughly checked out to make sure that they have as little impact on the environment as possible. They also donate a percentage of their sales to local charities.  They will ship anywhere in North America. Check them out online. I personally love buying from stores like this. You can feel the love!



Vegan Fashion: Soul Flower “Cool threads for kind heads”

soul flower vegan-friendly clothing line

A true hippie vegan fashion company right here… Soul Flower is an online retailer that offers eco-friendly threads for the whole family.  

The company was started in 1999 by “Mike & Peggy in the form of a small shop on Grand Avenue in Saint Paul, MN where college students and locals could hang out and find cool bohemian and eco-friendly threads.” The duo could also be found vending at local music festivals, spreading the vibe wherever they went.”  What I love is that they have a strong focus on giving back and work with several different organizations which focus on everything from feeding to the poor to raising awareness on our diminishing environment. I specifically couldn’t help but notice the cute outfits for your little ones so that’s what I grabbed some pics of…can’t feel bad about shopping on this site for sure! Positive vibes all the way!! 🙂

Ellie Goulding
Sexy Fit Vegan of the Month July 2015

Ellie Goulding Sexy Fit Vegan of the Month July 2015

The Amazing Ellie Goulding Named Sexy Fit Vegan of the Month!

July’s Sexy Fit Vegan of the month is one of my favorite artists from the music industry, my girl Ellie Goulding, who became a vegan at the beginning of 2014. I fell in love with Ellie over four years ago when I first heard her song Guns & Horses. There is just something about her music that I truly connect with. Her lyrics are honest and raw and while they are deep, mostly dealing with the ups and down of love, there is always a positive vibe to them. In a way, it’s almost like her songs represent how dramatic and insane us girls can be when we are in love and while they can make you cry, they also make you laugh at yourself. Her songs have been a HUGE inspiration for me and I am such a big fan! Learning more about her as a person, only solidified this fact as she is truly awesome all around! So here are the reasons why I chose Ellie…

1. She gives back. Ellie constantly partners and contributes to multiple charities including, Free The Children, Band Aid 30 and the British Heart Foundation. She not only donates her money, but also her time which can be even more valuable sometimes.

2. She’s super active. Like myself, she loves running and her goal is run at least 6mi a day and she runs several charity races throughout the year. She’s pretty fast too! She would definitely give me a run for my money as she finished a half-marathon recently in 1:41…I think my best time is 1:45  so she’s got me beat! She also practices yoga and trains with professional boxers which is so sick!

3. She’s got amazing style. Ellie is always dressed to kill even when she’s in chill mode. She’s effortlessly cool and has her own look that she owns! I always love seeing what she’s wearing on the red carpet but also when she’s on stage. She’s not afraid to show off her amazing bod but does it in a way that comes across as sexy and confident.

4. She’s down to earth. While Ellie has accomplished so many amazing things in her short career including performing at the reception of Prince William, she maintains a quirkiness, realness, and friendliness that makes her seem like she’s just like the rest of us. She comes across as being very approachable and seems like she would be so much fun to hang out with, which is why I believe her fans are so loyal.

Calico Dragon Vegan Bags

Calico Dragon Vegan Bags



Calico Dragon is a super cool line of vegan bags and the best part it was started with the sole purpose of benefiting animals.

Not only does the brand donate a portion of their sales to various animal charities, but they also have cruelty-free messages incorporated into the designs. According to their website, the “bags are completely vegan and constructed from up-cycled materials. Since we order such a small number of bags, the fabric used to make our bags is purchased from factories out of their “scrap” material, which would otherwise end up in a landfill. Heavy duty construction along with a bold message presented in an artistic fashion make these bags truly unique!”  Love it!!  The bags are such a bargain as well! Priced from as little as $15.00. Check out these cool bags on their website!



Freedom of Animals

Freedom of Animals Vegan Handbags

Freedom of Animals is another brand I found through Peta…they make high-end luxury handbags that are animal free and made in the USA.

What I love about them is that they are partnered with the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Kenya to which they donate a portion of their sales and also encourage their customers to donate and they name most of their bags after orphaned elephants that are rescued from the wild because their mothers were killed by poachers and taken to the Sheldrick Foundation. A gentle reminder of how precious all of our animals our to our world and how important it is for us to take care of them. The bags are sleek, timeless and classic in design which can easily go from the office to a night on the town. Check out their website.

Stella McCartney: Vegan Fashion Line

Stella-McCartney vegan fashion

I’ve been a fan of Stella McCartney since she launched her brand back in the early 2000’s and now even more after discovering that her line can be considered vegan fashion!

I had no idea…while her line might be a bit on the pricey side, I definitely think it’s worth the investment to snag at least a couple of her pieces for your closet. Her designs are timeless, colorful and super chic. I’ve put a couple of outfits together with peices from her newest ready-to-wear collection? You can shop them on her site. You can read more about Stella and her achievements in the fashion industry HERE.
