Loewe, Gucci, Liberty, and Persian Lamb

The first real snow fall hit where I live today and it was beautiful! In other news,  I don’t normally wear straight leg or flare jeans, but here is how I styled one of the few pairs I own yesterday. I started by adding Gucci heels because I am petite and this helps the pant hem hit the right spot and not crumple up at the bottom. I wore a black crop top and since it is cold out, I had to have a sweater over it. I choose a trendy fluffy red H&M open sweater. I used my Loewe purse to pull in the red and I paired a silk Liberty of London scarf with the outfit. The scarf helped for more warmth and it kept my color pattern going. The coat I am wearing is Vintage Persian Lamb with a fox collar. The coat is too die for and takes the outfit to a new level. Since the hardware on the shoes and my bag was gold, I wore gold YSL sunglasses. Love, Claire.

    I love your blog and have been a loyal reader for a while, but HOW can you promote fur in 2016? Those animals are put through hell to get their skins and it’s really gross and upsetting that people still wear it. Faux fur exists! I know it’s probably not as “glamorous” as you want, but animals don’t deserve to be electrocuted, beaten, and skinned alive for the sake of YOUR style. If the blood was still on it, maybe you wouldn’t wear it. I’ll still check out your blog, it’s just really dissapointing. 🙁

      Hi Krystal,I agree 100% with your point. I don’t wear any fur that isn’t vintage. I don’t promote the abuse of animals. I follow the guidelines of the fact that it is legal to sell hard to find fur that is over 50 years old. I honestly believe at this point it is more out of respect for the animal than just letting their hide rott somewhere. It is also important for me to look at this issue globally and in times before the 1950s, even sometimes today, some tribes around the world including the Eskimos in the US still trap animals for their fur as a lifestyle. These tribes respect the animal more than most and it is their culture. I do also wear faux fur and I don’t buy new furs, so my money isn’t going to that market. I usually buy my vintage furs at local thrift shops to put money into my community. Thanks for being a loyal reader. I really appreciate your comment. What do you think of my response? Love, Claire.

      Hey girl, I also think it is important to realize this is a product that has lasted generations compared to what people are buying today. Currently, there is an actual crisis with the clothing sitting in landfills. By wearing vintage, you can help that cause. It is also a bonus to wear vintage because it is not a mass produced item. The US makes 100% more Superbowl shirts than they need every year and then sends them to Africa where it is ruining their indigenous textile markets. On top of that, ateliers were paid living wages to make indigenous fur as compared to what we NOW pay people in sweatshops for a coat that will last you 2 years as compared to generations. One fur vintage coat hurts less people and lasts longer than one coat from say Forever 21. This is a good article about the problems fast fashion has created:( http://www.newsweek.com/2016/09/09/old-clothes-fashion-waste-crisis-494824.html. This is an ethically interesting topic, so I might do an article about it this month. Have a great day, please continue to comment on any of my posts, so we can chat:) Love, Claire.
