Cutest Vegan Bags for Spring 2015: We’ve got a little something for every budget!
I know that we’re in the dead of winter—that dreary homestretch towards the first blooms of spring. And I know that my beloved friends in the Northeast were just hit with a serious snow storm—but I’m thinking about spring. I can’t help it. No matter where I’m living—whether that’s Pennsylvania or South Texas—I always get a bit of premature Spring Fever.
Maybe this isn’t a bad thing. The thought of spring is like a sprinkle of lemon zest for the soul—energizing and refreshing, a recipe for mid-week, mid-winter joy.
So let’s talk bags. (That was a natural transition, right?) Let’s talk beautiful, cruelty-free, très chic bags that will get you excited about cherry blossoms, daffodils, flirty breezes, and spring.
Reminiscent of the chic designs of Céline, Freedom of Animals bags are crafted with eco-friendly, vegan leather in green factories. With minimalist lines and luxe hues, a high-end Freedom of Animals bag is the perfect home for your cell phone, sunnies, and new, dewy lipstick (rose is in this spring/summer season!). Raise your hand if this dusty blue backpack makes your heart beat a little faster.
