It’s Friday and I’ve really started to like compiling little lists of things I love. Thanks for bearing with this self-indulgent streak, boos. Since last week was so fox-crazed, I figured this week’s “Friday’s Foxy Finds” should still be foxy sans the foxes (it can be done!).
Lately, I’ve been pretty bonkers about neutrals and neons, specifically neon lime and bright blue. Throw in some natural wood, black, neutral beiges, and ethical construction, production, and cruelty-free goodness and you’ve got my neutral-neon vegan paradise (which, Jimmy Buffet never sang about).
All of these finds are perfect for now, but will still be lovely as the weather chills down. I love it when that happens.
I hope you’re soaking up these remaining days of summer, and eagerly awaiting autumn. I know I am.
Friday’s Foxy Finds: Neutrals + Neons
1) SUITOR GRAPHITE STRIPED LOVESEAT BY CB2 – $1199.00
I get the CB2 catalog all the time, and I literally gasped when I saw this creative, yet contained loveseat. Covered in 100% cotton with a frame of sustainable wood and soy-based foam, this little seat is a vegan’s dreamiest spot to curl up in front of the window with a good book.
2) NEON WOOD PLATE IN YELLOW BY NICOLE PORTER ON FAB – $42.00
I’m always dreaming up dinner parties and making up excuses to whip up a lush cake or extravagant meal. These plates would definitely qualify as an excuse. Whether you’re using them tray-style to serve fruity adult beverages or as a vessel for a one-woman-meal of avocado toast, these plates are dreamy.
3) CRI DE COEUR BOUNTY WEDGES IN GREY FAUX SNAKESKIN ON COMPASSION COUTURE – $99.00
Item #1: Compassion Couture is having a sale (wallets beware, you’re about to get used). Item #2: These shoes are hot. Sturdy enough to rock the rest of your summer and classic enough to pair with opaque tights and flannel dresses in the fall. #happening.
4) IN CHARGE EYELINER BY LUSH – $18.95
Who doesn’t want a little extra dose of badassery in their day? This eyeliner is a brilliant blue that will make your party nights and cat eyes even more fun.
There are few words that express the awesomeness of this necklace. Beachy enough to throw on with a swimsuit, coverup, and sandals for a little pop now, but architectural enough to make your black party dress scream “I’m hip as shit, son” when the weather turns frosty.
6) SMALL NUDE + SILVER GOLD METALLIC TOTE BY CANNA – ~ $119.00
Canna is a Brazilian brand of ethically-made, bespoke (as in, not everyone has one), all-vegan handbags. And what’s more? These bags actually look like the kind of style I want to carry. No bizarre, Palm-Beach-retiree embellishments that make you look like a 75 year old kook. Just sleek lines, classic shapes, and color combos that look serene and gorgeous. The website is a little tough for we English-speakers who want to seal the deal (the prices are quoted in Brazilian Reals), but the Paypal-ing and currency-converting is worth it. Canna handbags are truly lush.
Remember when people were like, “Neon is so dated”? Well, those suckers were wrong. Neon is awesome in the summer, and this bright green would be equally badass in the winter as a cheery pop of color amidst your nude slouchy sweaters and black leggings. Put it on your toes for an extra fun feeling of a secret fiesta going on in your shoes (and I’m not talking foot fungus, okay).
