The other thing that annoys me is animal activists when I wear vintage furs. I'm fully aware this is a contraversial subject. I would never ever wear a modern fur coat or modern fur anything because I do disagree with the methods in which fur is obtained and do not want to further the trade. However when people criticise vintage fur wearing because it's bad to wear fur, all I can say is that it's not being wasted. Surely it would be worse to chuck it in the bin, meaning that the animal's life would have been a complete waste. The companies who initially sold it get no money so it's not furthering their particular trade. I am more than thoroughly supportive of animal rights and do not want the fur trade to happen, but it just annoys me when people say things for the sake of saying it. I hope I haven't rattled anyone's cages :S
My sentiments exactly. It seems so senseless to waste vintage fur. Ignore the ignorant, ill-informed people who tell you "it's bad to wear fur". They're just looking for something to rail against.
The only other thing about vintage that really bothers me is the current glut of 1980's tat in vintage shops. I hate the stuff! 1930's/40's stuff is becoming increasingly hard to find and I may as well just forget about trying to find affordable 1920's stuff lol.
