Vintage Fox Fur Coat

Vintage Fox Fur Jacket How to wear Fur in Boston

I have to admit that I'm conflicted about fur. On the one hand, I completely understand why it's often a vile, cruel industry. I also realize that shutting down an entire industry in our fragile economic times can also only cause harm. If only we could find a way to come to a happy medium. In the meantime, I can appreciate my vintage piece recently inherited from my Nana. 
My mom purchased this fox for herself back in the late 60s/early 70s but it quickly became my Nana's signature piece. I hadn't worn it out yet since hanging it in my own closet a year ago because I was afraid of being verbally attacked by anti-fur zealots. But the fact is, I'm proud to wear something that my Nana loved so much and I feel close to her when I wear it.

A very beautiful fur jacket that looks stunning on you.

From someone who is on the pro fur (just pro fur, I do not make any money from the fur industry even though I wish I could be in fur fashion in some way) you are being shown the worst of the worst to give you those "vile" feelings. Those on the anti-fur side will use every shocking image that they can find, stretch the truth as far as it can be believed, all in an effort to "save" lives of animals that would never have existed if it were not for the farming operations. The fur industry isn't perfect, but it is also not as bad as it is made out to be.

Call me crazy but it's older fur I don't feel so bad about it. I like fur, I guess that makes me a bad person.
