Monday's Vegan Suit and Vegan Purchase: Tahari Suit via Macys

Late last week I went to Macy's to check out what seems to be a perpetual clearance on complete (two or three piece) suits. I found a really nice pant suit by Tahari (not Elie Tahari . . . just Tahari). It's black with small off-white pinstripes and has ruffles at the jacket pockets (see pictures to left and right). It was originally $320, and I got it for $99.99! Yes, bargain shopping feels good. Unfortunately, the suit is not available online. But there are other suits by Tahari on sale via Macy's website.

This grey pinstripe pant suit is possibly the closest to the suit I purchased. It doesn't boast the feminine ruffle pockets, but it has a similar one-button front closure and small off-white pinstripes. The suit is made from rayon and polyester, just like the one I purchased. Originally $280, it is on sale online for $149.

Also check out this light brown pant suit (pictured right). The jacket has a feminine three-button closure and hits at the hip; and the pants have clean, straight legs. Normally I'm not a fan of brown suits -- just never liked the color. But, in honor of Justice Rehnquist and the controversies he continues to be implicated in (see here), I think it is a fabulous suit, especially considering it is brown and has matching pants! The suit is made from linen, polyester, and viscose. Originally $320, it is on sale for $169.
