Anoiis Vares, best known as @plantyourownstory on Instagram, has been a longtime lover of Pixie Mood. We invited her onto our blog to share why she loves our brand and how she would style a few of our staple pieces.
I discovered Pixie Mood five years ago and the name alone attracted my attention. For me, pixies are mythical creatures which is a mood on its own, thus the best company name, Pixie Mood, was formed.
Pixie Mood is designed in Toronto, Canada and has been creating functional and stylish bags made from vegan leather since 2010. They have made it their mission to take into consideration the future of our planet when designing their products, and have chosen vegan to help improve the quality of life for all living things.
As part of their commitment to sustainability, Pixie Mood is dedicated to sourcing the most innovative and eco-conscious materials for their accessories. Their solvent-free vegan leather uses 95% less water and 50% less energy to produce than regular vegan leather. This material has also met international guidelines, which ensure it has been responsibly made, and meets standards for human and environmental protection.
How I Style: The Tinsley Crossbody
The twisted handle on the Tinsley Crossbody makes this bag a must-have item. With its timeless style that completes any outfit, it is offered in a wide selection of colours like Wine, Vintage Blue and Brown Kroc from the FW21 collection. The inner fabric is a friendly reminder that the lining is made from 100% recycled bottles, which has diverted over 550,375 plastic bottles from landfills to date. Designed to securely carry all your accessories, this bag also features a zip closure and detachable crossbody strap for multiple ways of wear.
The Tinsley will complete your outfit with elegance and match easily with any wardrobe or adventure. Wearable with all seasons, pair it with a simple dress, knit sweater and skirt, or jeans with a top. Versatile by nature, the beauty of the Tinsley in Misty Rose means that there is no limits to how you can style it as your daily accessory.
How I Style: The Cora Backpack Small
Whether you're running an errand, going for a hike or even having a night out, this classic and stylish backpack has your back! The Cora Backpack Small is designed for any occasion and has both a slip and zip inner pocket for storage. It also has recycled bottle lining and detachable, adjustable shoulder straps that can convert it from a backpack into a shoulder bag. The Cora is part of Pixie Mood's Core collection and comes in a wide selection of colours to choose from.
This minimalistic style can easily be worn with any outfit and will quickly become your daily accessory of choice. One of my favourite ways to wear the Cora in Black is with jeans or leather pants and a matching top or bodysuit. As a black bag complements any look it's paired with, the styling options are truly endless with this vegan leather staple.
Pixie Mood has the best selection of vegan bags and accessories for any and every day. Their website is very easy to navigate through, with beautiful photos and detailed descriptions of each item, that makes browsing and finding whatever you desire effortless. When you place your order, they ensure that their climate positive shipping and biodegradable, corn-based packaging does not harm the environment. They also partner and donate to causes like Girl Guides, One Tree Planted, and the Humane Society, meaning you can shop confidently with Pixie Mood knowing that they give back to their community.
Owning such high-quality, stylish and environmentally conscious products from Pixie Mood has always left me filled with joy and has me showcasing my accessories from them with pride. I can't wait for you to be able to do the same!
