Did you get something for you mom for Mother’s Day? My mother had been looking for a simple, medium-sized crossbody bag for the longest time, so I just got her one, albeit a little bigger than what she wanted. She also wanted the bag to come with an external pocket at the back, but I couldn’t find one with that in time, sorry mom.

And then I chanced upon this good-looking Palette cross-body bag by Angela & Roi. How did this manage to escape my radar? This vegan leather handbag is actually perfect, size-wise and feature-wise (it has a little pocket at the back).  I love the Palette Wine cross-body!

This bag comes in many pretty colors. Each color represents support for different cause, e.g. blue for colon cancer, so when customers purchase a blue handbag, five dollars will automatically be donated to Colon Cancer Alliance.

They also have other types of bags, also in quality vegan leather, such as this square tote bag. The Square Plum Tote, $148, is another one that caught my attention.

TOMS Wrap Boots

I would like to buy me some lady boots but I’ve always had a problem with them. My feet are small but my calves are huge! I always end up with one in a size too large, or those that cut around the biggest part of the calves.  These vegan-friendly wrap boots from TOMS seem to have a workaround (get it?) to this problem.

Since you can control how you wrap the fabric around the calves,  they can accommodate any size calves, including my tree-trunk like ones. Not only that, with every pair of shoes you purchase, TOMS will give a pair of new shoes to a child in need, so it seems like a win-win situation for all. (I can’t buy from site using my credit card but the boots can be bought from Amazon and some in the collection cost slightly cheaper there. )

If you have one of these, I am curious – does it look okay when wrapped loosely? So far I’ve only seen pictures of them worn bandage-snug. Please leave a comment!
