Welcome to The Chic Veggie! I am so excited. I just became a vegan, and while giving up milk was a challenge (more on that later) I have found my biggest challenges are at the mall, not the grocery store. Although leather and wool are starting to creep me out, I still find myself wondering through stores obsessively checking labels and wondering why more designers can't wake up to the virtues of cruelty free products, wishing that all my favorite pre-vegan purchases would magically become manmade.
And that is why I am here. I want to find the cutest, kindest clothing and accessories so we can be chic and guilt free.
So let's get started. First question - What to do with all the not so vegan things you acquired prior to taking the vegan vow? Giveaway? Wear with caution? Sell to carnivores? I want to know, because this is something I am dealing with right now. I am still having trouble parting with some objects (dumb, I know, but my navy blue patent wedding shoes hold a very special place in my heart for obvious reasons). I try telling myself is it "green" to keep some things and use them until they wear themselves out, but I feel like that is a bit of a cop out. Obviously, I am still learning and figuring this out. Please share!
PS - The A-DORABLE photo above is of our kittens, Jasmine and Cece. I am introducing you now because you will get to know them well. They say hi (or more accurately, meow).
