Vegan Look: Japanese Jacket | Matt&Nat and Bahatika

Hey guys!
As you may know already, I lived in Japan for six months during my third year of university as an exchange programme. To be honest, I remember didn’t mind so much where I went, as long as it was in Tokyo! I came back to Europe totally in love with that place, and every spring I see the cherry blossom season and I just die a little inside because it’s so beautiful it makes me want to cry! (I know, I know, cheesy as it can get but, come on, aren’t cherry trees stunning?)
So this is what this jacket reminds me of. It’s got the sakura flowers, the green, the black, and I’m so proud every time I wear it because it reminds me of all the efforts I made a long time ago to learn Japanese and now being able to more or less speak it makes me so happy!

These shots were taken in Parc, a tube stop in Brussels very close to the Royal Palace, if you’ve ever been. If you haven’t been to Brussels then please come, you’re missing out on the best chips of your life! But regardless of greasy topics, I can confidently say that I have fallen also in love with this little Matt&Nat bag and these Bahatika trainers.

I already spoke about Bahatika in this article, so I’m not going to go into too much detail. I will just say that I have been wearing them non stop because they are so comfortable and they go with so many outfits!

Vegan Look: Black Chic | LaBante, Bourgeois Boheme, Votch

Photography by Noémie K

Hi guys!

So in case you haven’t noticed, I quite like black. I mean… I love black. No need to explain, I think we all know why. It slimming, it goes with everything, and it just looks cool!

As I was changing outfits for the photoshoot I did with my dear friend Noémie, I just had a simple pair of skinny jeans, my favourite LaBante bag, and my favourite Bourgeois Boheme shoes. Turns out that we both loved this outfit – which was just an in-between outfit – and the result is quite pretty in my humble opinion.

Couldn’t post an outfit without my Votch watch, in black and gold. You can find it hereI recently became a brand ambassador, meaning that my role is to represent the brand as much as possible. I do honestly love every single watch of that shop, so don’t be surprised if I talk about it all the time!
Votch is a vegan leather watch company, that sells watches made without animal skins or derived materials. While aiming at delivering high quality watches and timeless pieces, Votch is becoming the number one vegan watch company out there, receiving lots of attention from many retailers and even winning the PETA award for best vegan watch company only six months after it launched last year. I’m beyond amazed by Laura Stageman‘s hard work with her company, and I always try to do my bit in helping out, as I am convinced that they are suitable for both vegans and non-vegans, because the style of the watches is simply stunning. Have a look for yourself!

I can’t count how many outfits I’ve worn with my Olivia loafers from Bourgeois Boheme… Please don’t mind me! I just think that they are ever so stylish and they just give that stylish ‘oomph’ to any outfit! Bourgeois Boheme is probably amongst my top 5 favourite vegan shoe companies out there. These loafers are 100% leather-free, eco-friendly and ethically handmade, and they have been produced in sunny Portugal. With super comfortable natural latex insole, they are lined with breathable and biodegradable plant-based bio-polyoils.


As I have mentioned in the past,  LaBante is a PETA certified bag and accessories brand that focuses on producing vegan, ethical and environmentally friendly fashion for all women. All their materials are ethically sourced with no animal cruelty, and the linings of the bags are made of recycled polyester. Dust bags and tags are also made with recycled materials, and on top of all this, 10% of the profits go to charity! I already have the Serin Quilted Bag, as I showed you in this blog post, but honestly, I just love their ethical but luxurious handbags. I’m wearing the Demi bag in this outfit post.

A cheeky hello from me! I hope you’re all having a fabulous day. 

Please do let me know what you think about this outfit in the comments down below, and I will see you all very soon!

Vegan Look: Khaki Suede | Bourgeois Boheme, Votch, Matt&Nat

Photography by Noémie K.
Hey guys!
Hope you’re all having a good week so far. I’ve been quite busy over here, so I know that it’s boiling out here in London but I still want to show you these gorgeous shots taken by my talented friend Noémie.

I was back in Belgium recently, and called her to shoot a couple of vegan outfits for the blog. We’ve actually worked together several times in the past, but I couldn’t help but brag about her incredible photography skills… She gave me some serious equipment-envy (can you blame me though?)

So I decided to wear this khaki faux-suede jacket from Zara (I’ve seen a couple of people with the same jacket and it drives me crazy! I hate seeing people with the same stuff as me), along with a grey denim shirt that I got in Japan three years ago, skinny black jeans and some vegan accessories.
I’ve already wore by Bourgeois Boheme Grace boots in this and this blog posts. Bourgeois Boheme is a Peta-approved vegan brand that specialises in innovative, cruelty-free and environmentally-friendly shoes. These boots are made with microfibre PU (the best kind of eco vegan leather), breathable seed-based linings and comfortable latex insoles. On top of it all, they are handmade in Portugal and they are super stylish!
You will also have noticed my Matt&Natt Scarlett cross-body bag. I also wore it here, but I love it for the weekends! I tend to choose hold-all kind of bags, since I love carrying all my stuff in one place, but this one is perfect for the little bits and bobs when you pop into the grocery store. Matt & Nat make vegan and eco-friendly bags. All of their bags have recycled plastic bottle linings and I can confidently say that every vegan has at least one bag of them in their closet!
I absolutely love my Votch watch too. This one is the classic model in black and gold, but they have so many other colours as well. Whatever your heart desires!
Hoping you all liked this outfit, I wish you a gorgeous day!

Vegan Look: White on White | Bourgeois Boheme, Votch, LaBante

Hi guys!
I really hope you’re enjoying the new pictures lately, I want to share every single shot that Simon Way shot during the Votch New Collection photoshoot campaign. They’re honestly so good I wish every picture on my Instagram (@marta_canga) and my blog had pictures this good.
I’m back with another vegan and cruelty-free outfit, head to toe. This time, I combined my white trousers from my previous post, with a white jumper, and black accesories. I honeslty really like how they turned out, and it’s particularly appropriate for this time of the year. Of course you can add more colour to it, but I’m quite minimalistic and I feel more confident when I actually don’t wear bright colours. But hey! At least I’ve got the flowers in the background to give these shots a bit of life! 😉
For this outfit, my accessories are what makes it all vegan and PETA-certified. I have been wearing the LaBante Demi bag non-stop since I got it, as it’s got so many little compartments, zippers and pockets which makes it perfect for me. Call me Mary Poppins if you wish, but I love to have everything I need in my bag, and it has to be super organised. Otherwise it drives me crazy (If you have a little OCD with neatness like me, please make yourself known, I don’t want to be the only one!). I already talked about LaBante here and here actually, so have a look at these blogposts to see other ways I styled it!
Then for shoes, I’m wearing my trusty Bourgeois Boheme Jessica oxfords. I got them last year during Black Friday and I spoke about them in this article, and styled them differently in this other article. Bourgeois Boheme is 
Finally, you’ll see I’m wearing a vegan watch from Votch, a brand that is very close to my heart as I consider Laura Stageman a dear friend since I met her and she’s quite possibly one the nicest and kindest people I have ever met. I talked fully about my story with Votch here, which you should read for a heart-to-heart type of blogpost.

What do you think of this outfit? Let me know if you’d wear a full-on white look!

Vegan Look: Green Blazer

Hi guys!

I am a big fan of green as you may have noticed from previous posts. On my recent trip to Manchester, my friend Nora and I picked up this same blazer at Zara and I have, since then, been wanting to show it to you. It’s a gorgeous deep green, with three buttons on each side and slightly long. Perfect for those of us who like to dress androgynous sometimes.

What’s best about it? It’s made from Tencel or also called Lyocell. This is a natural and sustainable fibre is made out of wood (crazy, huh?), is biodegradable and hence environmentally friendly.

Speaking of new things, I also want to show you my new LaBante bag, that I purchased after showing you my vegan bag wishlist a couple of weeks ago. The first time I saw it it reminded me of those Céline bags you see everywhere on Pinterest, but considering that this one is vegan and much more affordable, I think I hit the jackpot! 😉

LaBante is a PETA certified bag and accessories brand that focuses on producing vegan, ethical and environmentally friendly fashion for all women. All their materials are ethically sourced with no animal cruelty, and the linings of the bags are made of recycled polyester. Dust bags and tags are also made with recycled materials, and on top of all this, 10% of the profits go to charity! I already have the Serin Quilted Bag, as I showed you in this blog post, but honestly, I just love their ethical but luxurious handbags.
Finally, I will not let go of my vegan Olivia loafers from Bourgeois Boheme! These 100% leather-free, eco-friendly and ethically handmade beauties have been produced in Portugal. With super comfortable natural latex insole, they are lined with breathable and biodegradable plant-based bio-polyoils.

I cannot wait to wear these again in another outfit. Perhaps with some vegan burgundy lipstick and a bun?

Thank you for reading this blog post, and see you all very soon!

Vegan Look: Purple Perfecto

Hey guys! I recently went to Manchester, a city I had never been to before, to spend a day with one of my best friends. As you may know already if you have been following me for a while, is that I used to live in the North of England for a little while until recently, where I moved back down to London.

To spend the day, I decided to wear a very romantic shirt from Zara, that is white with embroidery and a cute Victorian black ribbon at the neck. I paired it with a purple perfecto from Warehouse (which I sold via my Vinted account. I regularly sell clothes up there so don’t forget to check out the account here). To finish off, some black skinny jeans and my old boots from Kurt Geiger with a mirrored heel, and cruelty-free of course, and some dutch braids.

My bag is a vegan bag from Urban Outfitters, which I talked about in this article.

For lunch, we went out for a vegan pizza at a restaurant called Dough. I had the wild mushroom pizza with vegan cheese and truffle oil. Needless to say, it was delicious!

And yes, my hair did fall by the end of the day. It’s a cute hairstyle but it was ruined by the end of the day… In any case, I will see you very soon with another blog post very soon! I try to post on Wednesdays and Sundays 🙂

Vegan Look: Pyjama Shirt and Matt&Nat bag

Hi guys!

I am publishing this blog post all the way from Spain, where I am originally from and spending some time with my big family. I have to admit that I took these pictures a little while ago, but I’ve got so much content it’s hard to schedule everything sometimes! (#thestruggleisreal). If you want to see some daily uploading, don’t forget to check out my Instagram at @marta_canga.

Here is a flash blog post from an outfit I recently wore in Belgium. As you may know already, I was actually born and raised there and so my parents live there. I try to travel back to Brussels once a month. I love going back though, as I’m always welcomed by my small room where this blog started, my lovely family dog, and very enthusiastic parents that I am incredibly grateful for having (Apart from the fact that I love hearing the strong Belgian accent that I miss from time to time!).
This time, I was super happy to go to Brussels for an entire week, so I had a little more time to spend perfecting blog posts, images, trying skincare products, and obviously… To walk around in the sunshine! 
Spring has finally sprung.

Say hello to my new Matt&Nat bag, that I showed you in my vegan bag wishlist here. Matt&Nat is a brand that I discovered when I was transitioning into a vegan closet. They have many resellers in the UK, but I must admit that buying online is the best option for me, as they have so many different models and colours…! This is the Scarlett model, and it’s an eco-friendly and vegan bag, and its lining is made out of 100% recycled plastic bottles.

I wore it with my beloved Olivia loafers from Bourgeois Boheme, which I talked about here and here, and an all-black everything outfit, that may have been a little too hot for the day!

I hope you like this outfit, and see you on Wednesday for another blogpost!
