Impress your friends with your cruelty free shoe collection this spring and summer and show them that fashion can easily be compassionate. It’s all about choices and we make it simple for you to wear the latest styles without the guilt of leather. One of our favorite vegan sandals this season is the Haarp Vegan Wedge by Madden Girl. An intricate geometric laser cut design makes these fashion forward sandals pop. You’ll love the faux wood wedge heel with faux leather cap and the gorgeous cognac color makes these vegan sandals the perfect versatile pair. They’ll look stunning with a bold colored mini dress or your favorite pair of cut off jeans and a simple tank.

It’s not all about height with these adorable flat vegan sandals. The Mel Fresh IV Black Vegan Flats combine comfort and unique style for the ultimate slip on summer shoe. A trendy d’orsay design is completed with a perfect red vinyl heart and the peep toe will show off your favorite shade of cruelty free nail polish. We think these vegan sandals would look smart dressed up or down and will look sweet with those heart shaped sunnies you’ve been dying to wear.

Cork is eco friendly, light weight and a great choice of material for this semi-dressy wedge. The Nautic Natural Vegan Wedge Sandals offer a simple design with lots of texture for a fun look. We love the criss cross macrame straps and the gold tone studs are the perfect accent. So easy to slip off for a quick dip in the pool. Pair these darlings with a simple sundress and an over sized straw hat.

I recently discovered a fun little Korean Bistro in my neighborhood and I wanted to share it with you. They have quite a few vegan options and the food is fairly healthy and a little more upscale then your typical order-at-the-counter place.  It’s called CHAM Korean Bistro and if you are looking for a fun little modern place to have some interesting vegan Korean food, this is the place to go.  I blew it and didn’t get a list of all the vegan options, but the staff is very knowledgeable and they seem to have access to all the ingredients, so you can just ask. Here is a link to the menu and most of the items are self explanatory (but of course there can be hidden animal ingredients, so it’s always good to ask).  I shared a couple of dishes and the food really surprised me.

We started with the Tofu Crouton Salad. There are not actual croutons in the salad, but little fried squares of tofu that were perfectly fried.  It included butter lettuce, a small amount of sautéed kale, spicy sunflower seeds and a black sesame vinaigrette.

We then had the Sizzling Hot Bibimbap with seared tofu which came with white or brown rice perfectly seared on the bottom of the cast iron skillet. It was a really large portion and would be a huge meal for just one person (although we all know that vegans can EAT!). The food was fresh and prepared well and even though I was full, it was hard to stop eating.

The other plus to this restaurant is that they offer wine and beer. Gotta love that. So, next time you are in Pasadena and looking for something a little bit different than your “usual”, try CHAM.
