Dress and bracelet: Thrifted — Sandals: 6pm.com (Dansko) — Socks: Sock Dreams (Bastia Comfort Top Crew in Sage) — Earrings: Hand-me-down — Ring: Nervous System
I have something to confess: sometime last year I referred to these Danskos as vegan leather, and I think I was mistaken in that assessment.
They’re no longer available on 6pm.com where I got them, so I can’t reference the exact listing, but I think where I got tripped up is that some listings on other websites refer to them as “veg tan leather.” Not being a leather aficionada myself, I assumed that meant that the leather itself was vegetarian or vegan–AKA fake leather. After a tiny smidgen of research today, though, apparently vegetable-tanning is one method of tanning animal leathers, which are decidedly not vegan.
Who knew! (Not me, obviously.)
So I’m sorry if I led any of you folks astray with my misunderstanding. Dietary and material restrictions can be tricky enough without misinformation being spread around! This bracelet is also leather, by the way–presumably animal. I got it at the thrift store, so the details are a little up in the air. If anyone out there happens to be postcognitive, let me know!
