When I think of the perfect purse, three words come to mind: cute, functional, and durable. Luckily for me when I tried Pixie Mood’s vegan-leather handbags and coin purses, my mind didn’t have to wander too much.
Their style is trendy and fun, using PU leather and cork which are vegan approved and are more durable than the usual pleather or vinyl handbags you’re probably used to. Pixie Mood has plenty of handbags and backpacks with a variety of prints and styles to choose from.
1. Choose a purse with plenty of storage and zippered compartments.
The Janine Crossbody has plenty of storage, with a soft lining and zippered top. It’s a good size to wear as an everyday purse as it can hold many items, but it’s also small enough so that you’re not getting lost in it.

2. Carry oversize bags only when needed.
Because I’m usually baby-in-tow, I don’t carry anything but a purse-turned-diaperbag and a wristlet. If you’re one of those cute, stylish moms a regular diaper bag won’t do. Opt for Pixie Mood’s Rachel Ombre Tote or the Amy Weekender as they will hold everything you need for the day.
3. Use a wristlet for carrying the essentials — your ID, some cash, a debit card, and a lipstick or two.
I particularly like the Cameron Key Wristlet in the floral cork print. It’s lightweight and has internal compartments for holding receipts or business cards.
4. Get conscious about what you wear and eat. Opt for cruelty-free fashion.
Many women swear by big designer brands that indulge in the animal-leather trade, but may not be aware of the harm it causes animals including cows, pigs, goats, and sheep. We won’t go into details here, but if you want the dirt on the leather industry, check out PETA’s article on the trade. Find a company like Pixie Mood that provides cruelty-free fashion.
Ask yourself, does an animal need to go through pain for you to wear a stylish purse? No, of course not! This is why brands like Pixie Mood are a great alternative for cruelty-free fashion. Pixie Mood is based in Toronto Canada and was started in 2010 by a cool couple, Kelvin & Chloe.
