I must stop shopping online!

I'm not normally that into online shopping, but lately I can't stop. I recently decided that after months of hating them, that I had to have a pair of brogues and it took me ages, but I finally found this beautiful pair from Bettes that are vegan and cheap ($40), who knew that one pair of shoes could make me so damn happy?
The laces are even velvet like and they actually look sturdy and they are even prettier in person.

And I think I may have blogged about this before, but if I have then it needs to be blogged about again. Feminist etsy seller Km Stitchery sells recycled t-shirts with feminist icons printed on them. Like this cute t-shirt of Charolette Bronte:

But I was squealing in exictement about their new feminst featured on clothing- Kathleen Hanna from Bikini Kill and Le Tigre:
If I can combine the previous style with Kathleen's print than I don't think I will be able to control myself. Did I mention that the seller is vegan too?

My other latest obsession is looking at vegan coats, in preparation for our freezing trip to the UK in December because I know that my crappy thin coats won't help me. I lovvvvvvvvvvvvvvvve this blue one from ModCloth that is currently sold out:

But if I had money I would so get one of the Vaute Couture wind resistant/snow resistant coats like this one. Unfortunately they are well out of my prize range.

I must have that Kathleen Hanna t-shirt!! My hardest thing about being vegan is the shoes - I miss being able to buy pretty shoes in any shop.

I love those brogues! And I had all but given up on my hunt for a non-wool-but-wool-like warm winter coat ... maybe I can afford them next year if I start saving!
