With even Gucci announcing their *no fur* policy for 2018, it's no surprise that faux is popping up everywhere these days.
First of all, I'm an animal lover; this isn't new to you if you are a long time reader of my blog, but the thought of ending someone's life just so I can be fashionable is sickening. Not going to lie, anytime I see someone wearing real fur I want to go PETA on their ass, or better yet, pull an Ace Ventura move.
(God, I love that movie)
BUT - I DO understand some people are uneducated and for many, it's apart of their culture. IF you are reading this and happen to have fur in your closet, such as fur trim, vest or coat, please think about donating it to a local wildlife shelter. Orphaned animals can find comfort in the fur and MAYBE your soul can be redeemed by this act of kindness. :)
Okay, now that I got that out of my system, I can move onto my second point.
Have you felt faux fur lately? Humans are genius, faux fur has been engineered to feel SO soft. In fact, much softer than an animal pelt, so, with the ethical option costing way less than the real thing, there's seriously no reason to say no to winter's warmest trend.
It is also important to note that not all faux fur is created equal. Be cautious when buying your faux's, sadly some companies have been caught labeling their clothing as "faux" when it isn't. This world is a crazy little place, isn't it?
There was no better place to rock my two new cozy faux's than the streets of Toronto on a cold November day. I'm also wearing faux leather pants, faux leather booties and hanging onto my Matt and Nat faux leather clutch made out of recycled plastic bottles. #truelovefauxreal
