politically incorrect

I love fur. I know it may anger some, and I am not in support of hurting animals, but I love it. I  wish there were a way to do it that did not hurt them, but humans have been using and wearing animal pelts since the dawn of time. I love fake ones and I have several vintage ones. The damage has already been done, at least get some use out of it now instead of having it be in vain, thrown away.
Anyhoo, that is my rant on fur. I love this fall fashion inspiration shot and I will show you later how to take an old fur from the 80's and get several really modern pieces out of it...

And I have also always loved the look of a fur throw on a bed - as Delphine Krakoff has done in her bedroom. There are two or three other animal bodies in this bedroom as well - but it has always been one of my faves.

How do you feel about fur?

I agree, love the look of fur but I definitely am not okay with hurting animals. So faux fur it is for me !

like you mentioned, I typically go vintage or faux, but I'm not totally opposed to other ways. I mean, I have an ikea cowhide on my office floor and there's no way to pretend that it is vintage! We eat the meat, might as well use the skin.

Faux all the way. I'm not opposed to you using vintage either. Just don't buy new. I have to admit, real fur is gorgeous!

I'm team faux, vintage is acceptable, but new is hard to wrap my head around. I'm not denying the beauty of it though.
