White Lace + LB Vegan Fest 2016

Dress: Maison Jules    Sunglasses: Stella McCartney     Shoes: BP    Bag: 88       Bracelet: Kristine Lily ℅    Ring: Kristine Lily ℅     Hat: Farmer's market find (similar)

This weekend, I was so happy to attend the Long Beach Vegan Festival.  I was invited by one of my favorite vegan fashion companies, 88 Vegan Handbags, to come visit their booth and explore the festivities.  The festival included tons of booths for food and drinks, fashion, beauty products, healthy, wellness, and more.  So many amazing companies were there and I really enjoyed the event!

88 Vegan Handbags

My first stop of course was the 88 Vegan Handbags booth, where I met the founder.  The team was so kind and they had such a great setup with gorgeous bags, including the new summer collection!  I was carrying my Zoe bag that day, and I got so many compliments from other festival-goers! 

In the middle of it all!
Happy Cow
I couldn't resist posing with Happy Cow- the mascot of HappyCow Restaurant Guide.  Happy Cow is a website where you can search for vegan or vegan-friendly restaurants and stores in you area by typing in your city.  I always use it when traveling!

I stopped by Vegetaryn's booth and bought a super cute tank top from her collection.  Mine reads "#VeganAF", and honestly, I don't think that could describe me more ;-)   I also got a picture with Taryn herself, who is SO sweet and gorgeous in person.  Her vegan story was one that inspired me a lot in my transition, and I was really excited to get the chance to meet her.

Happy Healthy Vegan
I also got to meet one of my favorite YouTuber couples, Anji and Ryan of Happy Healthy Vegan. Their channel was one that helped educate me on veganism and make the switch this spring, and I was really happy to meet them in person!  They were selling their vegan shirts and accessories, and I got the "Keep it carbed, baby!" tee.  

I'll definitely be going to next year's LB Vegan Fest as well as LA VegFest, which I had to miss this year.  It's so fun to be around likeminded people and be introduced to awesome brands and companies.  Oh, and THE FOOD.  I found myself at the Sambazon Acai and EatPops booths multiple times, and I also loved sampling some vegan food products that aren't on the market yet!  It was such a great experience and I can't wait to attend next year's festival.
