Mel’s Ankle Bow Rain Boots…My Hot Pick!

As you know, I am a big fan of Melissa’s shoes. I was delighted to spot these adorable ankle bow wellies by Mel in Lord and Taylor’s department store yesterday. They are extremely comfortable and very flattering on the foot. I know that I will really enjoy them on rainy, slushy or snowy days in the upcoming fall and winter. I think that they would look great with skinny jeans, leggings, or even a skirt. Luckily, they were on sale for $46.76 (not including tax). You can buy them online at Lord and Taylor or on Mel’s website.

On my way out of the store, I spotted some beautiful Big Buddha handbags on display. This one was my favorite…

In addition to the new line of Cornelia Guest handbags, I am a big fan of the Big Buddha handbags. Interestingly, I get many more compliments on these handbags than on some of the high end designer bags I used to buy. Here are a couple of my favorites…

You can purchase the Big Buddha bags on their website or at Lord and Taylor’s. Just for the record, I have been getting many compliments on this handbag and wallet from Vieta. The handbag can be worn as a cross-body bag or as a clutch. The wallet is a great size and I have been enjoying it for many months now. The bag and wallet can be purchased on Vieta’s website and they usually have good sale items to choose from.

As you can see, it is not too hard replacing your old leather handbags, wallets and shoes with really cute cruelty-free ones if you decide to do so. You don’t have to break the bank either. I hope you found these fashion tips useful and enjoyed a little peek into some of my favorite accessories. Happy shopping!






  1. You’re so interesting! I don’t suppose I have read anything like this before.
    So nice to discover someone with some unique thoughts on this issue.
    Seriously.. thank you for starting this up.

    This website is something that is needed on the internet, someone
    with a little originality!

    • Thank you so much! I have been a strict vegan for almost 3 years. I feel that I’ve acquired so much useful information and I really want to share it with anyone who may be interested. Thanks again!

  2. I believe everything posted was very logical. But, what about this?
    what if you were to create a killer headline? I mean, I don’t want to tell you how to run your website, but suppose you added a headline that makes people desire more? I mean Mel

    • Do you mean a killer headline for a blog post title? I’ve actually been thinking about taking that route, but I’m not sure if sensationalism is the way I want to proceed. I’d rather be authentic, but we’ll see. Is that what you mean?

  3. An interesting discussion is definitely worth comment. I do think that you should publish more about this topic, it
    may not be a taboo subject but typically people
    don’t talk about these topics. To the next! Best wishes!!

    • I strongly disagree with you and the proof is in the pudding. I have been receiving many thank-yous from vegans who are trying to find fashionable affordable clothes, shoes and boots. What is unimportant to you may be important to many others who want to live a cruelty-free lifestyle in every possible way!

  4. Hi there! Someone in my Facebook group shared this site with us so I came to look it over.
    I’m definitely enjoying the information. I’m book-marking

  5. Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know a few of the pictures aren’t loading properly. I’m
    not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different browsers and both show the same results.

  6. This site certainly has all the information and facts I wanted concerning this
    subject and didn’t know who to ask.

  7. WOW just what I was searching for. Came here by searching
    for consumer product safety commission

  8. Hey there I am so grateful I found your site, I
    really found you by mistake, while I was researching on Aol for something else, Nonetheless I am here now and
    would just like to say thanks a lot for a tremendous post and a all round interesting blog (I also love the theme/design), I don’t have time
    to look over it all at the moment but I have book-marked it and also added in
    your RSS feeds, so when I have time I will be back to read much more, Please do keep up the fantastic jo.

  9. Great post. I was checking continuously this weblog and I’m inspired! Very useful info particularly the closing phase 🙂 I handle such information a lot. I was seeking this certain info for a very long time. Thanks and good luck.

  10. Very good info. Lucky me I recently found your website by chance (stumbleupon).
    I’ve saved as a favorite for later!
