Vintage Fur, Freaky or Not?


Back in the 80s and 90s when I was vegetarian and occasionally vegan, the thought of wearing fur was totally repulsive.  Now….well I have changed….a little.  Vintage fur is about wearing history, and reliving past glamour.  Better than ignoring those many animals that lost their lives for fashion.  Let’s look at fur coat fashion for women, over the decades…..
