Fur: Fabulous or Faux Pas?
When it comes to the world of fashion, there are several hot topics that are sure to ruffle the feathers of die-hard fashionistas - fur is one of them. To wear it or not to wear it is the question for many. I have a fashion fanatic friend who swears by fur. She'll wear everything from mink to faux chinchilla. She believes that it's a timeless way to instantly add glamour and drama to any ensemble. While I, on the other-hand have never purchased a single fur item, neither faux or the real deal. It's not that I'm an adamant PETA activist, it's just that it doesn't fit into my personal style. **Pictured above: Ashanti, Beyonce and Mary J. Blige.
So I'm wondering what's your take on fur? Would you wear it either real or fake? Please share your thoughts.
