Leather-free, fashion forward

My sister Lindsey, a staunch vegetarian, doesn't wear or carry leather. When she first made the decision to give up the material, I benefited - as did a bunch of her friends - when we received her cast-off, oft-expensive and barely used collection of leather bags.

Once my sister made the decision to forgo leather, her search for stylish, non-leather goods began. One of the first lines she discovered was, coincidentally, one she found at Trocadero: Gwen Stefani's Harajuku Lovers. This line of fun, frivolous and fashionable bags includes lots of non-leather options that are also long on style. Below are just a few of the covet-able ones in the store now.
