I’ve got some amazing news for all you veganistas out there. Free People, the ultimate boho-chic, girly-yet-edge-y clothing line (and one of my personal faves), has just introduced an entire collection of something I can’t get enough of … vegan leather. [Insert happy dance here!]

As a fan of both cruelty-free fashion and Free People, this announcement was as exciting as finding out one of your fave celebs has gone veg, or when you discover a vegan version of something you used to love eating. Discovering that someone (or some brand) you love also loves animals is pretty much the best feeling ever, am I right?

Their compassionate collection makes sense seeing as how a lot of their designers are also vegetarian. After all, loving animals means not eating OR wearing them. Using vegan leather also reduces their carbon footprint so double kudos to them! Take a peek at their vegan leather-licious clothes and hear what the designers have to say about cruelty-free fashion and vegetarianism:

Not gonna lie, I’m probably gonna have to get myself that jacket. 😉 Which vegan leather piece are you lovin’?

    Honestly? It doesn’t seem fair, that VEGAN, means EXTREMELY EXPENSIVE!!!!
    WHY IS IT MORE EXPENSIVE THAN REAL LEATHER? Yes I’m vegan, but it seems to me like these designers are trying to take advantage of fellow vegans by charging “an arm & a leg” for something that’s supposed TO HELP SAVE LIVES!! It isn’t necessary because the fabrics and materials used in making these clothes & shoes is NOT expensive! I know! BECAUSE I’M A DESIGNER WHO DOESN’T OVERCHARGE FELLOW VEGANS!

    “Although the leather is vegan, the hood lining for the jacket does contain wool.”

    Not completely vegan jacket = very sad activist.

I love fast food, glass blowing, making solar sensitive paper prints, ceramics, making friendship bracelets, tie dying, decorating my room, shopping online and off (but mostly online), cuddling with my Cockapoo named Mickey,eating candy, making things, fashion, & going to the mall.

Halloween is my favourite holiday. I’m addicted to playing Kardashian on my Ipod and using Instagram. I want to travel a ton one day, learn German, drive and lifeguard, and be an elementary school art teacher. I collect international stamps, coins, postcards, Betty and Veronica Archie Comics, kawaii stuff, cameos, *stickers*, and trinkets (I pick things off the ground, I’m a klepto like that). I write in a diary everyday. I hate candy corn. I have two cactus plants. I have Facebook, Snapchat, Tumblr and Instagram, so HMU if you want my usernames. I believe loosely in karma, fate, kismet, déjà vu, reincarnation, dreams, destiny & fate. I love for stores: Etsy, Hot Topic, Francesca's, & Claire’s. People say I look like Brenton Thwaites.

What I expect from a pen pal is LGBTQA respect and a consistency to correspondence. But I seriously love meeting new people with different interests and writing to them.

    As a kid, I was and am still curious about the great big world we live in, and I thought nothing of animal abuse. But for some or no completely good reasons, I was getting sicker and weaker. Then one day I heard about PETA while I was on the internet. I got a little curious, and I went veg after finding out meat was one of the reasons I was sicker. Right now, I'm still trying to give up meat for my health. But I'm getting there!
