The first quickly over-crowded event was at Mooshoes - for Vegan's Fashion's Night Out. It filled up within oh, 4 minutes but luckily I got there early and saw everyone's stuff before it was wall-to-wall vegans. Since I've already written about Vaute Couture, Cri de Coeur, Neuaura and Matt & Nat before, I'll just focus on what I thought was the star of the evening - Love is Mighty.
At first I was all, "Oh, I love a metallic flat." And then I found out they are made out of candy wrappers. (!) Not to diss the arts-n-craftsy re-use contingent but there is nothing attractive to me about woven 1/2" strips of Capri Sun wrappers. These, however, are f'n covert recycling and look like cute shoes that people who wear cute shoes wear.
Here are the heels on the truly kickass gams of
vegan marshmallow legend Sara (of Sweet & Sara):
On to the second event.

I missed the Sea Shepard and Textile Arts Center events because there was just no way to make them all in the same evening but I'm glad there were so many great options this year. If anyone sees reviews of either of those events, please comment. I would love to see some recaps and live vicariously through others.
