July 4th High Style

Published on June 29, 2009 by   ·   7 Comments Pin It

July 4th means  stuffing ice pops and veggie hot dogs in your mouth while staring drunk, sweaty, and dazed at the fireworks… why not go all the way with some Independence Day themed garb?

Though you may not love everything our Country stands for, we have certainly come a long way. Wikipedia tells us; “The Fourth of July is a federal holiday commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, declaring independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain. Independence Day is commonly associated with fireworks, parades, barbecues, carnivals, picnics, concerts, baseball games, political speeches and ceremonies, and various other public and private events celebrating the history, government, and traditions of the United States. Independence Day is the national day of the United States.”

A pretty sundress will take you from picnics during the daylight hours to sloppy make out sessions to Born in the USA as the sun sets.

Blueberry Buckle Dress, $94.99

Throw on these cute sneakers (we suggest sticking to all white laces) with a pair of cut off shorts and a boy-beater tank top to show a lil’ pride.

This red fringed necklace is adjustable, so you can wear it long over your basic white tee, or high and danglin’ into your cleavage.

Throw this pretty tunic on with a pair of white pants for a totally comfy look that still says “I’ll smoke pot with you in the back of your RV.”

    adorable wallet, and that blue dress is gorgeous. but i’m wondering about the skinny model in the plus sized tunic…odd.

    I love the dresses and the sailboat wallet!!

  5. Why do Americans (even eco-minded ones) have to turn every holiday into yet another excuse to go shopping? I plan on enjoying my veggie hot dogs, veg baked beans and organic lemonade in a cute blue cotton dress (which I got for free at a clothing swap) already in my closet.

    Fellow eco-fashionistas, I do appreciate you are trying to show the world how stylish vegan clothing is and are including some affordable options. That said, maybe we can look into our closets and use some of the stylish vegan clothes we already have.

    A little less shopping won’t hurt us (but will help the planet), and if we acquire too many vegan wallets, no matter how cute, there won’t be much to fill them with. :-)

    Here’s wishing everyone a healthy, cruelty-free holiday, and hoping for independence for all living beings. – The Vegan Good Life

    I agree with VGL. But I don’t know of anyone who would see this blog and run out and buy (or buy online) any of these items. With the economy the way it is, impulse shopping is probably on the decline though I literally have zero proof of that, haha. Just my wishful thinking, maybe. But yeah, I haven’t been to a 4th of July party in years, and when I did go, I never bought a new outfit.
