VIP Shopping for The Trendy Vegan

By Yonni @vegandthecity
Facebook has it's perks for many reasons, but perhaps most importantly, for reconnecting you with people you last track of over the years.  In this case, it's connecting you to new ones!  My old friend, Becky, posted a link to the website she designed for her cousin, Karen Parker O'Brien, and I loved what I read about Karen's business.  She provides VIP access private shopping tours (sample sales included!)  As many of these are accessory driven, some of the tours can be totally vegan (for those of you new to the vegan scene, that means no fur, no leather...)  Seriously, could you imagine a private shopping tour at a vegan-friendly fabulous outfit like Stella McCartney?  For more information about Style Room, enjoy this article by Accessories Magazine, and if you decide to book a tour, invite me!
