i’m having a little moral dilemma—i went antiquing and vintage shopping today and i picked up a mink headband. it’s really beautiful but i feel guilty now that i’m home and uhm, google imaging MINK. and hm , boy are they cute. ugh.
should i feel less guilty that it’s vintage? does anyone buy NEW fur? does anyone exclusively buy pre-owned fur to lessen the guilt?

I’m wondering why people think fake fur is better for the environment than real fur? Real fur is natural biodegradable and sustainable/renewable. Fake fur is basically plastic. It is made from chemicals including petro-chemicals which come from OIL. I understand not wanting to wear fur because it harms animals but could you tell me how it is bad for the environment?

Yes, but ONLY if it’s from a charity shop, that way the money is for a good cause.

Yes, definitely yes, but only 2ed hand and vintage. I always get so mant compliments on my fur items — especially a fox stole from the 1930s.
