    Just think how sweet the animals would be if they were still alive. Most of the fur-wearing women would exclaim: “Aw, cute!”. Sorry if it gets old, but to me, wearing furs just for the heck of it feels deeply wrong.

      there is really no excuse for wearing fur: it’s so cruel…

      Agreed. And so unnecessary. There is so much beautiful fashion to choose from without wearing fur.

    It looks like real fur and I don’t think it’s nice to rate and give space to these people.

        +1 .Have a hard time seeing it as fashion, just like I would if they were using human skin as “cute wrappers” or the like..Fashion should never outtrumph cruelty.

      I agree, too.

    the looks are great. Not sure anyone really thinks a mink is actually sweet in real life.

    • Mary Jane

      February 11, 2015 at 1:36 pm

      A lot of people aren’t ‘sweet’ either, but doesn’t mean they deserve to be skinned and worn as a wrap.

    Is it all the same person, using the same accessory? She looks great and the creativity is inspiring….

    I really wish you wouldn’t feature real fur, especially fur which is clearly not ‘vintage’. Often these animal are skinned alive, because it’s quicker and cheaper than being more ‘humane’. It really is possible to look fantastic and keep warm without contributing to this horror.

      It would be beneficial to animals (and people) around the world if a little more light was shed on how ALL textile industries have a negative effect on us. Farming of cotton, especially, destroys habitats and directly kills vast numbers of birds and wildlife. Just because you can’t see the dead animals doesn’t mean they didn’t suffer and die. Logging, farming, the manufacturing of vehicles and so many things that anti-fur activists enjoy the “benefits” of every day all contribute far more to animal suffering and death than the relatively small niche market of the fur industry. Unless you’re living in a cave and eating roots somewhere in the woods, our very existence as humans in modern society is contributing to the suffering of animals. So rather than accuse others, please, take a close look at yourself and maybe do a little comparative research!

        I wonder what you are trying to say? Does the fact that cotton farming is also harmful make fur farming LESS harmful? Because our “very existence as humans is contribution to the suffering of animals”, we need not bother to try and avoid the worst aspects? If every single one of us tried to change just one harmful behavior pattern, the world would be a better place. Instead, you opt for relativism and even try to make it sound as if you were morally (and intellectually) superior to those who at least TRY.

          Good response Jessie!

            Thank you! English is not my first language, so I’m never quite sure I’m putting it right…

        With respect, you do not know the choices I’ve made or the research I’ve done!
        But avoiding fur is an easy choice which would result in a quantifiable reduction in animal abuse. Of course ethical choices in all aspects of consumption is what we should aim for, so I thank you for raising these other important related issues.

    I’m disgusted by the fur, and disappointed that you keep showing it.

    I guess you people don”t realize the beautiful leather coats, pants and boots as well as the designer purses that you so adore are made of real animals. Don’t think that all the leather is only a by-product of the food industry because most of the animals killed for food don’t have hide suitable for the fashion industry.
    These animals are farmed for their fur just as the leather industry has animals farmed for hide. These animals aren’t taken out of the wild.
    Now I don’t wear fur but I do wear beautiful leather boots and jackets.

      What makes you think “we people” do not realize that? I for instance wear neither fur nor leather clothing, only leather shoes, but I don’t have many pairs, and I make them last for many years. You are of course entitled to a different opinion, but please do not talk down to us as if we were stupid.

    Looks like a squirrel has leapt from its tree and is holding on for dear life on her head…but has lost the battle.

    I sometimes find it hard to reconcile the anger against fur, but the massive use of leather in shoes, for example.

    I think the issue for me is that fur is such an ostentatious way of using animal products, and represents this – “F*** you dumb animal, humans rule!”

      That lady in the fur headpiece and chainmail knit sweater sure puts the War in wardrobe, doesn’t she? Of course I wish all creatures could live in harmony. But it’s not a perfect world, therefore I can’t see wearing fur as some sort of character litmus test (anti-fur feels, to me, a bit like “patriotism being the last refuge of a scoundrel”). And I love animals…that won’t stop a hungry wolfpack from devouring me.

    this season I have really fallen in love with grays… I really love the big grey sweater on the lady with the squirrel hat, and the zipper on the side gives it touch of fun!

    What’s with all the furs that you keep posting here? Although I am no animal rights activist, the amount of animals on human beings that I have seen here lately seems a bit excessive and gruesome. The fur hat on the first photo is plain ugly, tacky and not stylish at all. Unless dressing like a 19th century ranger from the Appalachians is in fashion nowadays.
