Camel Coated

Camel Coat Trend Street Style


There is nothing sleeker nor sexier than being draped in a camel-colored coat.  Camel seems to be the magic color that looks good on just about everybody.  In a coat: it's classic, timeless, and gives you the kind of glow only seen in the halos of Renaissance-era angels.

Comforting Hot Cacao

Hot Cacao Recipe

Okay. I know, I know, I know, I said I wouldn't post any food or drink recipes.. but this one, I just couldn't resist! The perfect pick-me-up for a cold, late afternoon in December, hot cacao was exactly what I needed today to lift my spirits...and lift my spirits, it did! This recipe, which I adapted from Valentina Zelyaeva's blog (who has tons of great juice and smoothie recipes) was WAY too good to keep all to myself.

Gift Guide for Her

Holiday Gift Guide for Vegan Fashionista
A few no-fail gifts for the vegan or animal-conscious, fashion lover in your life. 

Gifts! gifts! and more gifts! Shopping for loved ones can be hard and by hard, I mean trying to avoid the inevitable, 'you go shopping with the intention of buying other people gifts, yet just end up buying more stuff for yourself' syndrome. My theory is that you're more likely to come out successful if you go in with some sort of plan of what you'd like to get those on your list. Before I go christmas shopping, I like to make a list of everyone I need to get gifts for, what I'd like to get them, and the stores I'd most likely find those gifts at...at least this way, you're more focused, less stressed, and there's a bit more hope for you coming home with something to put under the tree this year. And if this sounds like a post about what I'm planning to give other people this year, I've deceived you. It's actually, quite ironically, a list of all of my favorite and most desired items on my wish list this year. Yep, and now I've gone full circle. All the way back to buying gifts for myself.

The Liebster Award!


miss america vintage

Horray, The Vegan Voguette has been nominated for the Liebster Award! 

The Liebster Award is a way for small bloggers (200 followers or less on bloglovin) to promote one another, attract attention to their blogs, and make friends in the blogging community. I love this idea (new friends and followers...I mean, who wouldn't?) and am so happy to have been nominated by Lulu's Sister

Currently Craving: Color Me Red



For most of my life, lipstick was about as interesting to me as the score of any major league football game. Not one to take much of a fancy to football, I could also care less about the subtleties behind the statement-making power of a bold, red lip or the confidence it instilled upon the person behind it. Of course, I always appreciated it on other women whom I saw sporting the hue, yet never actually considered wearing the color myself until recently. For me, red lipstick seemed to be a lot of trouble for something that at a moment's notice may just as well decide to turn on you, leaving you with the unforgivable, red gooey residue plastered across the forefront of your teeth, which might as well be a billboard advertising your cosmetic "newb-ness."

Cara Delevingne, The Man Repeller, and Lady Gaga: What They All Have in Common


Cara Delevingne The Key to Success is Being Yourself Leandra Medine The Man Repeller The Key to Success is Being Yourself Lady Gaga The Key to Success is Being Yourself

I came to thinking today about some of the big names right now in pop culture--you know, the people I and countless others sometimes live our lives vicariously through on Instagram-- people like Leandra Medine of The Man Repeller, the notoriously "bad-gal ri ri" (Rihanna), supermodel Cara Delevingne, costume queen Lady Gaga...and I couldn't help but wonder, what is it that makes someone interesting enough to garner such cult-like followings? I mean, after all, people are just people and have you seen the number of Instagram accounts dedicated to Delevingne?

A Vegan's Right to Snickers: Three Delicious Halloween Treats Everyone Can Enjoy

Halloween circa early 1990s. That's me on the far left. 

As a kid, for me the real joy of Halloween wasn't in dressing up like famous figures or Hollywood movie stars, nor was it rush of adrenaline received while being spooked by neighbors who took the holiday all too seriously. No, it was none of these things. For me, Halloween was about one thing and one thing only: the candy.

Worth the Wait: Black Vegan Leather Skirt

I know, I know, I'm a little late to jump on the bandwagon here, but the truth is, I've been craving a cool, black, vegan leather skirt for quite some time now. I just haven't been able to find the right one. I love the look of these sleek, high-waisted skirts above--a basic, black, vegan leather skirt can pretty much be considered a wardrobe staple, as it can be dressed up or down and goes great with nearly anything. So, you can see why I was in no hurry to buy one that I wasn't quite sure I'd love till death do us part. 

Well, good news! The wait is finally over! A whole new, slew of adorable vegan leather skirts miraculously popped up on the market this week and just in time for fall. Yippee! I decided upon this one, and can't wait to get it in the mail so I can start experimenting with all the varieties of what I can pair it with. For now, I'm thinking basic tees, sweaters and crop tops... 

Similar ones here, here, and here

Currently Craving: The Plaid Skirt





Ever since this red plaid mini caught my eye on Instagram the other day, I have not been able to get it out of my head! I absolutely adore this look on fashion blogger Aimee Song of Song of Style. Her skillful mix of prints and addition of a black biker jacket toughen up the school-girl plaid, while the delicate, heeled ankle boots add a touch of femininity. In my eyes, this look is perfection--the perfect mix of sophisticated-chic and cool-girl punk.

Juicing, A to Z


I don't usually post about food or juicing since I originally intended for this blog to be strictly about vegan fashion, however, I recently found this article in the Wall Street Journal and thought it was too good to not share. So for those interested in juicing, this is a great read on how to take your juices to the next level (not to mention some cool new cocktail concoctions!)

Right now, I'm currently craving a pair of classic, black ankle booties for the chillier months of Fall and Winter. Personally, I like low-heeled versions best because I find they are easier to wear and can be dressed up or down to fit nearly any occasion (not to mention, your feet will thank you too!) 

Here are some of my favorite vegan finds:
