Real winter is coming in Switzerland with a lot of snow. That means the weather isn’t hot outside… So I have decided to take my faux fur to keep me warm. I think a lot of you (maybe everybody) have seen the beautiful collection of BALMAINxH&M. When I first saw their black/green coat, I definitely and directly fell in love. He keeps me really warm and I feel so comfy when I wear it. Maybe you should try one article of faux fur and you’ll see how practical, beautiful and comfy it is.
FAUX FUR, NO REAL FUR!
Why do we (fashionistas) buy coats? To keep us warm of course, but that’s not one and only reason. We love coats because it gives some style in our look, because it can be so stylish and beautiful. We meet a lot of different coats with different colors and cuts. And we all have to buy them again and again. These things prove that faux fur is a real -it- fashion piece which is so stylish and comfy. So we can choose to buy something that’s made without murders, torture and suffering. That’s great! But do you know that some people don’t want to buy them because they prefer real fur? Strange story… I want say something about real fur. You know, animals skin? It’s so soft, shiny and wonderful but only ON THE ANIMALS! I don’t understand how people can buy something made from torture. Maybe they don’t know where their « coat » come from or maybe they don’t want to know because it’s too many problems to learn. But I have to say something : we live in a world full of beautiful things but also full of sad and bad things aswell. We CAN’T continue to close our eyes just because it’s « too many problems » or because we « don’t have time ». It’s easier to live in a comfort zone, they’ll tell…
ARE YOU GUILTY?
I am not telling that everybody who loves real fur is 100% guilty. But these persons have to know that they help something for this dark business. If they stop to pay for it, the business will have to stop aswell and the animals would have the opportunity to live normally (I wanted to say that they will have the CHANCE to live normally. But I don’t want to use the word « chance », because I think animals shouldn’t need CHANCE to live normally. It should be something simply NORMAL and they should have the same RIGHTS than humans).
I CAN DO IT, YOU CAN DO IT, WE CAN DO IT!
If you know someone that knows someone who knows someone, bref if you know someone in your entourage that haven’t any problem by wearing faux fur, please talk to this person. Because the society’s opinion have to change about animals rights. When the opinion is changed, the society’s behavior will start to move aswell. And who is the society? It’s you, me, someone you know, someone that knows someone who kows another one… The society is simply US. So let’s start to make a change, step by step.
Ok, sorry for my speech but I think it should be important to each one of us. We could talk about it for hours, but now I have something to show you (and it’s really amazing).
I received this beautiful iPhone case from Richmond & Finch and I wanted to have your opinion about its design? Am I the only one who loves SO MUCH marble? No! You can purchase your choice just here (yes, they have a lot of differents colors and even other designs!)
I also received one of the most beautiful watch I’ve ever seen (for real)! Cluse Watches really know how to do it well. The design is so MINIMALIST and SIMPLE! I have to say that I love it so much that it seems like this watch was made for me (colors, materials, price, EVERYTHING). I invite you to discover their collection just here (they have a lot of others colors and design!).
