so… what’s the deal with Like To Know It?

Like to Know It is wonderful and easy, but also misunderstood. My readers want to know what it is, how it works, why they need it, what’s in it for me. I get it!  I’ll try my best to explain.

Basically, Like to Know It is here to save you tons time and to help you shop my looks from Instagram!  Once registered, you only have to ‘like’ my IG photos, and Like to Know It will send you an email within minutes with the links to every item I am wearing!

(Recent development:  Like To Know It now has an APP!  Y’all, it’s amazing. When you like or screenshot any of my looks (or looks of other influencers, too!), you can shop the full looks in the app, and can browse for more as well.)

 

1. Go to www.liketoknow.it to get started!  There is a tutorial there for you to watch, as well, to further explain how it all works.

2. Register (takes 1 minute, and it is free)

3. Go to my Instagram and ‘like’ one of my photos. Within minutes you will have an email that has all of the outfit details in it!  And if you do decide to download the app as well, you can shop it there within literally one minute. Either way, there will be photos of the items that, when clicked on, will send you straight to online store where I got it so you can see more about the item and shop it! (Note: my clothing, accessories, beauty products, etc. are ALWAYS vegan and cruelty-free!)

4. If I don’t have the exact item I’m wearing linked in the Like To Know It app/email, it is because the store where I got it isn’t contracted with rewardStyle. This does happen sometimes with me since I like to support small businesses, boutiques, and fair trade brands.  In that case, the brand will most likely be tagged in my IG photo or linked on my blog, BUT it you have any questions you can always reach out to me!  Via Like To Know It, I will also always link similar items for you that I love, if for some reason the exact one is not available.

5. Once you’ve registered, you can also shop directly from the app OR the LiketoKnow.It website itself! You can keep track of everything you have liked on Instagram under the ‘My Likes’ tab;  that way, you never forget to shop or lose the outfit!  You can also shop all of your favorite bloggers’ posts by adding their Instagram handle at the end of the URL (as long as the blogger works with Like To Know It) . For example, you can shop all of my posts here: www.liketoknow.it/fashionveggie

Get excited… Shopping just got a whole lot easier!

mothers’ day with banyan tree essentials

What to get the mother who is hard to shop for? I wanted to branch out from just sending her to the spa every single year, and she is very particular about what clothing or jewelry she’ll wear.  And let’s face it… Flowers die in a few days, plus she has a boyfriend who sends her those.  SO,  this year, I tried something a little different, and kicked off Mothers’ Day a bit early with a fun dinner + drinks date and a SPA IN A BOX! We ended up with a two box combo (c/o the cruelty-free, 98% vegan spa based in Singapore, Banyan Tree) and it was perfect!  I really feel like this would be a great gift idea for the chic mom, the overworked mom, the high OR low maintenance mom, the long-distance mom… Your mom!

(Sidenote… For those of you who have lost your mothers and for whom this holiday is particularly hard… I am thinking of you, and hope that this post doesn’t make you feel sad. If you ever want to talk, I am here!)  This blog post also applies to yourself if YOU are a mother– heck, even a dog mother! Treat yo’self.

(Before I forget– I have a discount code for y’all!  Enter in MOLLY20 at checkout for 20% off anything you buy on the site. YAYYYYY!)

The packaging was ultra-luxe AND eco-friendly.  My mother was so excited to hold on to beautiful boxes for future gifting.  She started by opening up the Mum To Be box. Inside, there was a spa-quality, eco-friendly, matching slippers + robe combo; jasmine rice night cream, ultra-moisturizing hand cream, and body lotion.  The creams and lotion smelled heavenly, and she was already very excited. But then, we opened box #2, which was the Nest Maker. Inside, there was a beautiful, hand-crafted, ceramic oil burner, 3 divine-scented essential oils (lavender– which is my fave, litsea, and peppermint), and a relaxing spa music CD!  Essentially, she will be able to create a spa-like experience/ambience whenever she wants to, while in the comfort of her own home.  I would definitely recommend ethically responsible Banyan Tree to anyone in search for a way to pamper their mom this holiday.

[ von holzhausen ] new luxury handbag alert

“Introducing the best leather bag… It’s not made of leather.” – Von Holzhausen

Hi, friends.  So, brands like Malibu-based Von Holzhausen are why I wanted to be a vegan fashion blogger when I first started out 2.5 years ago.  What we have here is a high end, specialty, beautifully-constructed handbag line– who has always used leather in all of their designs– who now sees the way in which the world is changing and has made the decision to change right along with it.

Luxurious brand Von Holzhausen is pioneering the use of  future-forward “Technik-Leather,” traditionally used in automobiles, in fashion.  Their latest collection of uber-chic shopper bags and pouches are made in the USA with no toxic byproducts or harsh chemicals, no waste factor, and no animal products.  Their bags are substantial yet surprisingly lightweight, and look just like buttery leather… Except no animals were harmed!  On the inside of the bag, you’ll find sustainable suede substitute, “Technik-Suede.”

From experience, I can tell you that this bag is perfection.  I LOVE the shape, quality, and lightweight portability.  It is truly beauty-meets-functionality.  I love putting my laptop in this bag every day on my way out of the door to work, knowing that it was USA made with sustainable practices, and EVERY time I come home after receiving at least 5 compliments on the unique look.  Do yourself a favor and check this brand out!!!!! Let’s support companies who are making strides to improve the way they create fashion.

xoxo

vegan fashion for men … a shopping guide for caring men and those who love them

First comes love.  Then comes marriage.  Then comes a little baby in a carriage.

OR, you’re us.  In which case, first comes a period of fun and passionate dating, then comes Molly going hardcore vegan overnight while her bewildered boyfriend tries to figure out what happened to their perfectly normal life, then come minor disagreements-turned-larger-resentments over half of the things that used to go blissfully undiscussed.  Such as a carton of eggs.  Or Neutrogena face wash.  Or his clothing. I would hug him in his favorite cashmere sweater, and suddenly I’d feel ill.  I couldn’t help it, I just knew too much about what happened to the poor bunnies.

NOTE:  Matt and I are GREAT now!  We’ve pretty much got it figured out.  Hence, we can now help you navigate the complicated (but not-so-much once you learn the ropes) world of vegan fashion for men.

ALSO NOTE: My lovah, God bless him, is a bonafide clotheshorse.  Everything I’m listing on here is Matt-approved and good lookin’. No hemp Birkenstocks for this guy!

Alright, lets get this party started.

shop for the animals; shop tristin! (online boutique)

shop tristin, vegan fashion, fashionveggie molly tuttle

shop tristin, vegan fashion, fashion veggie molly

top: tristin ($22!) / skirt: tristin ($32!) For reference, I am wearing a size small // wooden necklace: savvie studio

I love this set so much, I couldn’t even wait long enough get it hemmed to wear it around town and to put it on the blog (hence the “ombre” look at the bottom of the skirt)!   Oh, the challenges of being 5’3″!  I love that the pieces can be worn separately– I wore this skirt to brunch, for instance, with a low v-neck, cotton, cropped tank.   The material makes this appear MUCH more luxe and expensive than it actually is (the whole thing is only $54!), and it is extremely flattering on.  I like to dress it down for daytime with an earthy wooden + cotton necklace, but I also look forward to having an occasion where I can dress it up; it would be perfect for a gala or holiday party!  The biggest reason I choose to shop at Tristin— aside from the super reasonable price point and the fact that I love supporting a small biz– is that they donate 10% of their proceeds to animal charities, and everything is 100% vegan!

Some of my favorites from their site (ALL of which are very affordable):

“I started Pashmina Collection in 2013, because I couldn’t find the right thing to wear to my Friday night meals. I wanted a dress that was chic, comfortable, warm, and modest; one that I could wear when hosting friends and family, but that was comfy enough to snuggle on the couch and read books to my three beautiful kids. When I couldn’t find it, I simply decided to make my own.” -Connie Wolf, CEO

***

Hey guys, happy Friday!  So, you wouldn’t believe how many compliments I get on this dress.  And I get it.  It fits like a glove, so flattering, has eye-catching colors, and is perfect for work, home, or play.  Plus- it is super, super comfy, and is now on sale for $35 down from $169!!  For reference, I am 5’3″ and wearing a size small. As you all probably know, I love shopping small and supporting companies who produce here in the USA with fair working conditions… Pashmina Collection is produced in Brooklyn, and can be found in boutiques across the nation plus Canada, London, and Israel.  I’ll post more of my favorite Pashmina pieces below!  Happy Friday, friends.
