No More Real Fur For AK!

My fascination with fur started long before I could afford it, actually that’s probably why I wanted it so bad because I couldn’t afford it. Anytime a friend had a fur vest, I’d pat it down like a brand new puppy dog. I had no regard for the animal that was no longer alive and the primary topic of conversation.

This time last year while shopping around in Westfield London, I came across a black mink fur vest and finally I was in a position to buy. This mink fur vest travelled all over London, Hungary and Croatia with me during winter. It travelled through temperatures of -15 and it kept me warm on evenings out in London where it felt like it was going to snow. I loved it and easily layered the fur vest with all my outfits. It became part of my uniform.

Then Freelee The Banana Girl hit my radar and I slowly became turned off animal fur, one grotesque video at a time. Anything involved with harming animals for the sake of fashion, repelled me.

My once staple item in my wardrobe suddenly became the one item I avoided like the plague. Eventually I’d sell it on eBay for something like £30 just to get rid of it because I didn’t want it in my life anymore. I felt it represented evil. In fact, I remember writing about it on my blog and talking about the ethics behind fur but with no real empathy. These were the days before Freelee.

Fortunately these days, it is much easier to find ethical alternatives and wearing real fur unnecessary. Some of the faux fur I’ve come across since actually paying attention have been fantastic replicas, just like these by London Designers, Ruby + Ed.

Or, if you’re living in Croatia brands such as Lukabu by Marina Jerant have a fantastic selection coats with a faux fur & wool blend combination, perfect for keeping you warm and also in the corner of everyone’s eye.
