    Tamara the Turkey

    Beware vegans who offer to bring the turkey to the Thanksgiving party…

    Meet Tamara (as in Sister, Sister‘s Tia and Tamara, obviously), my contribution to the annual “Friendsgiving” celebration.  Pinterest fail or success, you decide; regardless, I will now provide the how-to:

    Get a melon and slice the bottom off so that it has a stable base

    Attach a Bartlett pear with a skewer to the melon as a head; then with toothpicks, attach a slice of carrot as the nose, and a slice of red pepper as the snood.

    Attach peppers as the feet with toothpicks.

    Add fruit of your choice, kabob-style, to skewers and add to the melon as feathers.

    VOILA!  You have now effectively created fun controversy at your omnivore friend’s Thanksgiving party.  You are welcome.

    Book Club

    Don’t judge this book by its… Title. Regardless of any social/romantic choices you’ve made, you need to go online and order!  After clearly outlining in the intro all the reasons to go vegan (health, animals, environment), the book serves as a fun, informative road map to a kind and vital lifestyle.

    Shirt: Vintage concert tee.

    Gold canvas clutch with black grosgrain ribbon: Clare Vivier.

    Baby B

    Meet Brinkley, a beautiful dog to whom I was introduced today while volunteering at a Texas Humane Legislation Network event for the Humane Society.  Brinkley was rescued from her shelter’s gas chamber just in time, and is the sweetest baby ever.  In case anyone is looking at anything besides gorgeous Brinkley (I don’t blame you if you aren’t):  you can get the houndstooth coat shown here for $158.

    Worship-Worthy

    I’ve decided that I must have this vegan suede and faux fur coat by Sanctus.  I love the dramatic, borderline-gothic appeal of the “blood red” oversized hood.  I thought this was very cool:  the designer, Lucinda Sinclair, makes each piece by hand in her studio in North London.  There are only 50 of each design produced (each garment is labeled 1-50), so not to worry about any accidental “twinning.”  Her creations are inspired by religious symbolism.   Order yours here.

    Kicked Back with Sydney

    Après date nightcap, wearing my favorite vegan leather Sydney Brown booties.  Made in LA, the entire pared-down but funky line is made with recycled, eco-friendly materials.  I am wearing the platform boot in plum, $200.  Side note:  I love the idiosyncrasies in the wood, and the fact that each pair is handmade and one-of-a-kind.
