I adore a yummy fur. I own both real and faux, but I comfort myself with the knowledge that I only buy vintage or recycled real fur — that gives me some points, right? right?!
How To Wear Fur
To move on, fur (real or faux) is a fantastic part of fall and winter dressing. Just look at how Sarah Jessica Parker wears a fur coat in any winter scene of Sex and The City. Whereas in the past, fur screamed luxury and elegance, fur is hollering fun glamour today. In the colder areas, throw on that fur coat with your ponte leggings and water proof riding boots. For the warmer areas, feel free to put that coat over a tank dress and some heels and have fun with it. If you are cold enough to wear it, wear it. I wear my shin length beige coat with a giant detachable fur collar all around San Diego if I am cold. Sure no one else in San Diego is doing it, but isn’t that the point?
Where To Buy Vintage, Used & Recycled Fur
My favorite places to buy vintage, used, and recycled fur are listed below…
- Vintage shops: there is always a rack of fur in any good vintage shop.
- The Real Real

I think, fur is so sexy and womanly.
I like animals, but I like too, if a beautiful woman wear fur. (And Sarah Jessica Parker a really beautiful lady.)
I don’t know, why protest against wearing fur, instead should battle for better treatment with farm animals – mainly in Asia, and not only in terms of fur.

Great blog, and Carry Bradshaw is an icon by herself. Beautiful and unique-everytime I watch sex and the city I fall in love with her outfits and her hairstyles.

This is disgusting that you try to make fur seem glamorous. You are condoning animal cruelty for your disgusting vanity.
Fur doesnt have to be real to be glamorous.
