Friendly Fashion

Next time you head over to the Grand Lake to catch a matinee, head over to Santa Clara Ave to Micio Mambo. Run by Ursula Calderon, the most conscientious shop owner you'll ever meet, MM is a sweet shoe and accessory shop that is entirely vegan. 

Even though the shop is quite small, Ursula carries a lovely selection of shoes - and all of them are non-leather and cruelty free! Check out these sexy red wedges from Chinese Laundry:

She also carries a selection of men's shoes for those vegan hunks in your life. And while they're looking at the shoes you can check out the beautiful jewelry by Nashelle, made from recycled gold and sterling silver.

And if you're looking for great beauty products that haven't been tested on our animal friends, try out her make-up selection by Zuzu Luxe, which is lead-free and made from all natural ingredients. MM also has a great selection of lotions and balms by Earthly Body, earth-friendly products made from hemp.

Even the displays and decor in this sweet little shop are made from recycled materials, from the full-length mirror made from an old door to the carpet made from recycled coke bottles. Ursula's store is so earth-friendly that she's just been nominated for a Veggie Award for Best Vegan Storefront in VegNews. Don't forget to vote for Micio Mambo!
