A coworker of mine is vegan in diet (for health reasons) but is not really strongly tied to animal rights issues, so she doesn't live a vegan lifestyle otherwise---wears leather, etc. She does say "strict vegetarian" out of respect to vegans, who might be offended to hear her calling herself a vegan, but if people need more clarification about what she can or can't say, she will say "vegan" so that people know that that means no eggs or dairy, either. And she doesn't mind if there is honey in things.
Also, I wanted to say that some committed vegans DO still wear leather, at least at first. Some people feel that if the animal had to give it's life for their shoes or jacket then they will honor that animal's sacrific by getting as much use out of it as possible. Of course many (most?) vegans would donate their leather/wool, etc. stuff because they would feel uncomfortable still using such things, but still, that situation does sometimes occur.
