Boutique of the week – vegan accessories from Compassion Couture
An internet gem for anyone who appreciates fashion forward items that are 100% cruelty free and eco-friendly, Compassion Couture was thoughtfully started by the Spiritus sisters who set out to make a difference in peoples lives, the animals, and the world that surrounds them. Jill and Tracey band together to hand pick each item and share the beauty of fashion by not compromising quality or style.
“We take a fashion-forward approach towards living an ethical lifestyle. All of our shoes, bags & accessories are 100% animal friendly, vegan and produced by labels that incorporate sustainability into their practices. Our mission is to find a balance between our values and our passion for style,” reveals co-founder Jill.
Here are some of our top picks for Spring/Summer 2013:
Cornelia Guest – Peri Messenger Handbag: The Peri is a classy and cruelty-free way to rock this season’s color-blocking trend. Simple and sophisticated, this messenger is perfect to tote all your essentials around town hands-free.
Olsenhaus – Nirvana Sandals: Looking for an everyday sandal with a little something different this season? This simple, flat style in a neutral tan can be worn with almost anything, but the striped beading around the heel adds texture and make these pop just enough. Pair these sandals with any shorts for daytime or a cute skirt or dress for night.
Krže Studio – Clair Vegan Suede Fringe Bag: NEW VEGAN BRAND ALERT!! Wanderlust and free-spirited ‘Clair’ is essential when day tripping down route 66.

A portion of the proceeds from this bag will be donated to Mercy For Animals.
