Faux fur rules!

Recently I visited a vintage party. I think buying (and trading) vintage is a great thing to do and I really appreciate it when people make an effort to consider the environment while updating their wardrobe. Full of excitement about what kind of spectacular items I was about to discover today I went to the party. Unfortunately I was soon to discover that this party wasn’t that much fun at all. About half of the vintage collection that was presented was made of real fur! If there’s something that I just can’t understand, it is why people should buy real fur. When I confronted the owner of the fur items with my point of view he tried to convince me that it isn’t that much of a problem to wear real fur and that the negativity that’s associated with wearing it is much exagerated since most people wear real leather without a breeze. With that superficial non-explanation he convinced me to leave right a way, this just wasn’t my ‘cup of tea’.

So here I am, wearing my nice FAUX fur gilet! And I’m proud of it!

Above I combined the faux fur gilet (H&M) with a white turtleneck (Drykorn), a jeans skirt (Diesel) and fringe ankle boots (Isabel Marant). I completed my outfit with a beaded necklace and a bracelet with ‘a hint of orange’.
