Growing up in New York, fur was always a big part of the fashion culture. There was rarely a negative stigma behind the choice, in fact, it was pretty universally deemed chic, chic, chic. For me, cold weather is all about the fur coat. It's luxurious and fancy and fabulous and sexy and royal and haute and... feel free to throw in any other words to describe its regalness!
Point? Yes, I do wear fur. And I have a dog that I love, and I definitely follow many more pet Instagram accounts than human Instagram accounts, and I eat meat, and I wear leather shoes, and I always donate to pet charities.
And I'm perfectly ok with all of that. No need to explain any more. I'm really sorry if I offend anyone who's against fur.
If you feel the same way about fur as me, then I have a great new fur resource for you. It's called ML Furs, and it's based in Denver, Colorado. I recently discovered their website on my trip to Aspen.
I especially love their fur accessories-- it's something that's pretty new in this fur game. This hat is similar to the hat I'm wearing in these photos (the hat I'm wearing is about 7 years old from DVF, so unfortunately it's no where to be found for sale these days)!
But, I'm all about these wild fur headbands now, anyway. They're very affordable, and very statement snow bunny chic! If you don't own any fur but want to take the leap, this is a great first step...
