Faux Leather Favorites


{Outfit details: Fauxgerty Red Jacket, Forever 21 top, Kent Stetson custom bag, ASOS Ridley High Waist Skinny Jeans, Karen Walker ‘Number One’ 50mm Sunglass, Rimmel The Only 1 Lipstick, Caption Nail Polish}


During Fashion Week, I hosted an event with Alive Magazine for Fauxgerty, a St. Louis based vegan leather jacket and hoodie line. While I’m not a vegan, I’ve been a vegetarian since I was 8 years old and always want to support animal kindness whenever I can. Plus their stuff is so hot!!! Also on the faux leather front, I’m so excited about my custom Pretty Connected bag by Kent Stenson!!! With the New York City skyline at the bottom and the sketch Henri Bendel artist, Izak Zenou did of me at an event — and of course my social media handle, @prettyconnected at the topic — it’s perfect! They have an amazing assortment of cool bags or you can make your own. kent-stenson-bagWith Coachella on my mind I’ve been living on ASOS and Forever 21’s website for inspiration. The top I just picked up from the Forever21 music festival collection and the jeans are from ASOS mega sale they had going on a few weeks ago (they just arrived!).

Rich, beautiful pigment and they are so moisturizing. I’ve also started to break out the spring shades. The blue I’m wearing is from Caption Polish and ultra gel-like shiny and give a nice pop of color!

Here are some more looks from my event with Fauxgerty where I interchange The Echo (first photo) and the Light Headed [Heavy] Intention jacket which featured the hand-painted work of Meg(an) Ebaugh-Faris.
