I believe that one should always dress up when protesting, especially if it’s a high end store like #INTERMIX.
They need to know they lost a potential customer. It’s also a great way to showcase vegan fashion. My new “I’m a vegan” sign was a great edition, but it didn’t completely eradicate those pesky “Your shoes are leather!” comments. No they’re not. They’re faux leather and fabulous.
Here’s my outfit from yesterday’s Fur Free LA protest in Beverly Hills
1⃣ Millau Dress - LF Stores
2⃣ Millau Happy Face crop top -LF Stores
3⃣ Purse by Cri De Coeur
4⃣ Boots by Big Buddha
5⃣ Vintage white Ray-Bans.
I’m a big fan of Herbivore Clothing Company. I got this “I’m a Vegan and I ❤ You” tee from them along with my “Bacon Had a Mom” shirt. I’m also rocking my silver compassion bunny necklace that my lovely and amazing friend Brenda designed for the Love Infinitely Project in honor of my fur free organization Fur Free LA. http://instagr.am/p/Isri5_xIa6/
Sorry my friend D.j. is being a dick about you being a vegan. Personally, I think it's awesome you're a vegan. I probably would be, except that I was just brought up this way and it's such a big part of my life now to cut out. But good for you for making a nice decision. <3
I’ve been a vegan since I was 15. None of my family was. In fact, my dad was a butcher’s son. He grew up eating lamb chop for breakfast. But unlike most kids in LA, I had pet chickens. When I first adopted them I immediately made the connection that my pets were also other people’s dinner. I couldn’t live with myself knowing that my diet was killing animals that I called pets so I stopped eating chicken. A few years later I went vegetarian. It wasn’t until I saw “Meet Your Meat” in a workshop class in high school that I finally went vegan. You’d think more people would have supported my decision not to partake in the slaughter of 50 billion animals for human consumption annually, but it wasn’t like that…
My parent’s supported me. They even went vegetarian. Yup. My dad, the butcher’s son, will not eat meat anymore. I don’t know what I would have done growing up without their support because I was harassed and bullied all throughout high school for being a vegan. Kids would slip me notes in class with pictures of dead animals. I would get prank calls from other kids threatening to kill my pets. There are a lot of cruel people out there who attacked me because my lifestyle is somehow a threat to them.
My “Bacon Had a Mom” t-shirt from Herbivore Clothing Company arrived today! I love it.
Pigs are friends, not food. I don’t eat my friends.
