I recently came back from a week in London and was reminded about how much I love the culture, city, and the Brits. But I was also reminded about a few things that annoy me. London is a very trend-conscious city. It only takes a few days on the street, public transport, and walking by a few shop windows to know what is in fashion, because almost everyone follows trends. One trend I noticed all over London was fur – mostly cheap, ugly, tacky, fake fur. The British are total hypocrites when it comes to fur, here’s why.
1. They wear tons of fake fur. There are very, very little topics that PETA and I will agree on, however one thing they do say is that the wearing of fake fur promotes both fake and real fur fashion trends, and therefore should not be done. I will agree with this, because most people do not have the eye to spot a real from a fake, and if they see fur (real or fake) all over the shops and streets, they will probably buy it. Britain – if you don’t like fur, then don’t wear it and for god’s sake stop wearing that cheap, tacky ugly fake fur made from petroleum products that are infinitely worse for the environment than a mink coat.
