I have a question I have been wanting to ask you for a long time…
Do you wear fur… or do you prefer the faux fabulous look?
How do you feel about that?

I willingly admit to loving the look, the feel and the luxury of fur… although I don’t own any… other than the occasional collar and cuff on a parka jacket… and whether it truly is fur, is questionable.
Emotionally and intellectually I’m not sure what to think… I understand in climates where the cold is relentless, fur is a must… fur becomes a practical matter for survival. Fur for fashion’s sake is altogether a different question.
Growing up in Australia meant there wasn’t much real need to wear fur… it wasn’t a part of my life… although I do remember the smartest department store boasting a ‘ fur’ department and I also recall a time when demonstrators created havoc with their psychedelic paint and spray cans.

Faux has come a long way… it has become chic and a fashion statement not withstanding the texture or cloth it’s cut from.
I admit to loving faux… regardless of whether you have the real thing or not… a little faux makes a stylish addition to the wardrobe.
French girls wear faux frequently… and from where I am sitting… they usually get it right.
Let’s chat… Fur or Faux? Or both… xv
