An Offer You Can't Refuse from Vegan Boutique Compassion Couture


Admittedly, I have a bit of an affinity for Jill and Tracey Spiritus.

Not only are they entrepreneurs of my generation who created online vegan boutique Compassion Couture, but they’re Long Island gals. (I was raised on the island.) It’s always fun to meet cool, like-minded people from your neck of the woods!

The sister duo created Compassion Couture after they went vegan several years ago, realizing how difficult it was to find stylish, cruelty-free fashion. They hand-select all of the items, which include women’s shoes, jewelry, handbags, hats and scarves.

The online boutique carries a number of well-known brands we love including  Neuaura Shoes, Cornelia Guest’s vegan handbags, Beyond Skin, Matt & Nat, and olsenHaus.
