MASKS + SOCIAL DISTANCING MAY STILL BE IN PLACE FOR MANY - BUT WITH COVID LOCKDOWNS IN AUSTRALIA COMING TO A CLOSE (BETTER LATE THAN NEVER, MELBOURNE), IT'S TIME FOR A PARTY. DUST OFF THE CHAMPAGNE FLUTES, TURN THE TUNES UP, SLIP ON SOMETHING SPECIAL + LET'S CELEBRATE BEING TOGETHER, IN CRUELTY FREE STYLE.
Whilst we can’t be there to nurse your post event sore head, or put bandaids on your blistered feet, we can suggest cruelty free handbag options that will help you feel better about the impact you're having on animals + the planet. Here are some of our favourite treasures, to consider as your 'plus one' at your festive soiree.
Crossbody bags are our style of choice this event season. Why worry about having to juggle your cocktail, canapé + your clutch? A vegan crossbody bag says you're a carefree creature who doesn't have to clutch a fashionable receptacle + limit your hands-on activities.
Here are our top vegan crossbody bag styles for events season, or even if you just feel like taking your outfit to the next level because you're excited at the prospect of seeing friends + family again:
The Long Lunch Mini Tote has become a firm favourite amongst our community + it’s not hard to see why. With modern + sleek design, it’s an easy to wear piece - the moulded handle and extended top zip give an edge of 'relaxed glamour', a welcome addition to any party.
The Long Lunch is also a clever choice for your daytime engagement. We called it a 'mini tote' as it’s a little bigger than our other vegan crossbody bag styles, which means it will easily fit extra essentials such as sunglasses + case, SPF moisturiser (or hand sanitiser perhaps?) + a power bank to keep you going from day to night.
New for this season is the High Road Mini, an excellent companion for daytime or evening soirees. Its elongated shape brings a distinctly elegant mood, and it has has a separate pocket designed for easy access to your phone - so you can grab all those pics with friends you've been missing. Given that it’s light, the High Road Mini is perfect for after 5 events where you just want to dance the night away. Pop in your phone, lipstick, cards, keys + voila! - you’re party ready.
We couldn’t overlook our signature crossbody style in the party wrap up - The Reader Satchel. With its vintage inspired luggage handle + boxy shape it’s got a 'modern meets nostalgic' mood, and its multiple gussets + compartments are perfect for fitting your phone, keys, cards, makeup + more.
The Reader always makes a statement + is a fun addition to any event. It now comes in more colourways + fabrications than ever, so it suits any style. If you're a Sans Beast aficionado + already familiar with our signature collection, check out all the current tones + textures here.
Don't Forget the Strap: For those seeking a bolder, more opinionated look, all our vegan crossbody bags can be customised with our range of bag straps. There's the added benefit of buying a (full priced) bag + a strap, and saving 10% on your total purchase.
A final note from us: There are so many events we’re excited about after such a challenging period for all of us, and we can’t wait to toast to being amongst our friends + family again, however there is one event we won’t be participating in + that’s the Spring Racing Carnival.
We know race days look glamorous (been there, done that), but we can’t deny horse racing exists to use animals for human profit, and when profit is the main driver, exploitation exists. Horses deserve better from us. We stand with the horses, past + present, who are pushed to triumph for humans + if they’re deemed surplus are sent to a grim + terrifying death.
This year more than ever we believe we can find another reason to get together + celebrate. So we’ll be saying Nup To The Cup.
A toast, to being around the ones we love + celebrating this events season - be well + stay safe beautiful beasts, we so appreciate you being here.
