dear readers - I whish you a merry chistmas!
i shot this outfit before i left for my family's home... in early 2010 my mum handed this vintage fur jacket down to me. i wasn't sure if i would wear it... as being a vegitarian for about fifteen years i don't feel quite pc about wearing a mink!
i still remember, when my mum came back home from shopping with my granny... she was so confused and upset about this jacket (me too. i was 7 years old and an enthusiastic animal lover)! actually my mum would never had worn a mink because of non- ethical husbandry. 'i really never, never, NEVER wanted this fur!' my mum confirms a minute ago . my granny thought this jacket would be a very useful and fashionable item in her daughters denim-all-over-closet! mum still wonders about how my granny persuaded her to bring this fur home.
to cut a long story short... i thougth it would be fun to surprise my mum by wearing this mink on christmas. hehehe, she really was surprised.
we (mum & i) decided that those minks - who had to die for this jacket nearly 25 years ago - won't get back to live by tossing it away. ok, the mink is going to stay in my wardrobe but i definitly can't promise wearing it in public...
