Greetings One and All,
I hope that the weekend was refreshing and that this week will be a great one! I would even take a good one! Today we are just going to digress a minute and talk about one fall trend that is huge! Controversy is always surrounding it so I thought we would take a minute and open it up for a discussion. The trend is FAUX FUR – and the debate continues over whether or not one should wear real fur or faux!
As it stands the faux fur is far more acceptable and one trend, so to speak for the masses at least. However, is it really all that it claims to be?
We all understand the age-old topic the real fur involves the killing of animals. Wearing leather and eating steak is largely the same thing.
Personally, I don’t really have an opinion for anyone else. I am all about – to each his/her own! I am a diehard animal lover. A lover of animals one and all! The real fur folks claim that they have come full circle with regards to ethical treatment and largely the use the fur of animals that have become overpopulated! It’s a big topic and involves a lot more time than we can give it today, so I would encourage you to research this if it is something you want to know!
As for faux fur, the controversy is basically over the fact that faux furs are not biodegradable. Once you are done with it, it will likely take up space in a landfill somewhere for eternity! I do like faux fur because it is affordable, accessible, warm and colorful, not to mention very on trend! Usually when you wear faux fur, you do not get a rise out of people as you would if you sported the real stuff around town. I will say this much, these faux furs look so real, some of them anyway, that I cannot tell the difference………
Basically it comes down to this… it is a CHOICE and choices bear consequences!
Let us know what you think in the comment section at the end of this blog!
Thanks for the read and we’ll continue with trends for Fall on Saturday!
