  4. waou !!!!! this coat is wonderful ! i love it !

  5. I hope you don’t get a lot of abuse from fur haters over it. I think wearing fur (eating meat, drinking alcohol, etc) is a personal choice, and I don’t see why someone should be bullied over it. I have seen other blogs get targeted when they have shown something made of fur, even though it was vintage.

    The jawcket is nice :) . It will be interesting to see it in an outfice.

      Thank you for your comment! You really hit the nail on the head. I did get a couple of emails about it, and I might answer them openly. But, to put it briefly I’m thinking like this: I have so many leather bags and shoes (not even vintage), that a vintage fur coat can’t really tip the scale.

    I’ve got to disagree. This isn’t a ‘hate’ comment, this won’t change my view of your blog, but I am completely against fur, vintage or not. It’s completely unnecessary to wear real fur, when fake fur does exactly the same job. This isn’t coming from a vegetarian, I eat meat, but I use meat as food, not just to cover myself up with, there are plenty of other materials that can do that task.

      What’s your opinion on leather, Hollie? Leather bags, for instance?

      • Hollie says:

        I don’t buy leather either, I used to but, a lot shops on the British high street use pleather, and as it’s often also more affordable I buy that.
        Leather never seems to be viewed in the same way as fur, even though it is made in a much similar way, I guess people can see past that with leather as for most people it is a part of everyday life.
        I love that your blog makes me think, and whether I agree or disagree, it’s why I keep coming back!
        Thanks for the reply

          Thank you for your kind words, Hollie:) And I know exactly what you mean. Somehow, leather is more “common” than fur.
          However, I own many leather bags and shoes, so in my position avoiding fur for ethical reasons would be hypocrisy:(

          • Hollie says:

            I think it’s just one of those tough subjects, I’ve known a few of people who were strict vegetarians, but would still have no problems with buying/wearing brand new leather boots or bags or buying cosmetics from companies that test on animals.
            It’s very hard to avoid hypocrisy, you just have to stand by your view I think

    Hi, I just discovered your blog, so I’m reading it all, I just can’t stop ! I’m a huge fan of Sweden and Scandinavia.
    I know this post is old but I just wanted to say that I’m totally against fur. I mean, it’s just my opinion of course, but I’d like to explain why. Infact, most of the animals captured for their fur or leather suffer (during the capture because of the traps or in an animal husbandry where the conditions can be awful…), I think we all know that… right ?
    I wear leather, I buy leather… but I will never ever buy fur because I learn years from now that some animals captured for their fur are skinned alive. Not all of them of course but thinking about it just makes me wanna cry so… I can’t stand that… and I wanted to share it with you…

    Anyway, I love your blog, it’s really interresting :)
