Vegging Out

CC is delighted to dedicate today’s vegan, cruelty-free post to a fabulous local chain of shops: Homeward Bound! CC recently picked up this gorgeous Matt and Nat clutch at Homeward Bound in West Hartford, CT. Loving the zipper details, the crinkly patent pleather finish, and the sleek envelope style!
Furthermore, Matt & Nat bags have lots of useful compartments, including an inner zippered pouch and cell phone pocket ~ so chic! The lining is faux suede, made from recycled bottles – how cool is that? To get your fantastic Matt & Nat vegan handbag, call (860) 233-9500 or visit one of the four Homeward Bound locations in Massachusetts and Connecticut.
Be sure to check out the Homeward Bound website, homewardboundstyle.com, for more amazing pieces for you and your home! Also, Homeward Bound is on Facebook ~ CC is a fan!

Fashion is going green! I have been a vegetarian for 8 years now (I was vegan for 3 of them)...It is great to find cruelty-free products that actually look stylish. I love the Stella McCartney gromet tote, as well as the Paul & Joe pleather dress. Your Matt & Nat is gorgeous and so chic. I have some of Homeward Bound's Cathedral candles and paper notebook. They are phenomenal.

WendyB said...

I like the leopard trench the best.
