Pixie Mood - Whimsy meets Style!
Last year, my sister gave me a fun little gold bag from a design company called "Pixie Mood." It was a great discovery.
Unlike the other companies featured on my site, Pixie Mood is a completely vegan, cruelty-free, PETA-approved boutique company featuring vegan bags and wallets. They create their bags in poly urethane (PU-leather) which has much less harmful impact on the planet than vinyl or PVC. It is also a lot softer and does not crack in the harsh winter weather like other synthetic leathers would. It does feel really nice.
I love to browse the Pixie Mood website and all their designs. Their styles are so contemporary and fun. The prices are a little high for my budget, but I could definitely imagine splurging on a Pixie Mood bag. It's a company worth supporting.
My SKECHERS Spring / Summer Wish List
After so many years of searching, to find athletic shoes without leather is something to celebrate. Thank you, Skechers!
The Skechers brand seems to be expanding constantly. They are now making so many fun styles in playful colors and fabrics for men, children, and women. I highly suggest perusing their website. You will be amazed at all the choices. (www.skechers.com)
I already own three pairs of Skechers: a pair of light green cross trainers which I wear to the gym, a pair of casual shoes for errands around town and days off, and a pair of black mary-janes with rubber soles that I wear to work in bad weather. I am looking forward to trying their sandals.
If you have not bought Skechers before, a few things to be aware of. Firstly, read the descriptions carefully. Some styles do have leather, but many don't. Secondly, foam footbeds and cloth uppers, while incredibly comfortable, do not always provide much arch and ankle support. Like most shoes, they are not for every foot type.
