I just saw a post about Kate Hudson on justjared.com sporting a light colored grey fur coat made by Burberry . It made me feel shocked and yet not so surprised but honestly a bit sad and angry .
I may not be a vegetarian but when it comes down to animal cruelty and the welfare of animals I can't stand seeing fur coats when I have seen the horror stories about it from animal welfare groups and sites .
It would be different if one had an animal in the farm and killed it for it's meat for cooking and the used all it's resources like fur and skin for a carpet , coat , etc , but that is not what happens to these innocent creatures .
Take a look at Stella McCartney , she is a vegetarian designer who has fur free fashion . She may not be my favorite designer but she stands by her ethics and does not hurt an animal just for the sake of fashion and trends .
It is people like Anna Wintour and many others in the fashion and entertainment industry who choose to support wearing fur and advertise it . Also , I am not judging these people just feel the choice they are making by sporting fur is wrong to me .
For myself I will not buy anything with fur anymore no matter how cute or nice it may look , no makeup brushes , chinese accessories with fur , clothing , paint brushes , etc. I may wear leather shoes but I don't wear fur .
They must be cruelty free if they do have fur and certified that they are . Smashbox supposedly has makeup brushes which are cruelty free which is what one Smashbox makeup artist told me once . 100 Percent Pure is entirely cruelty free and so much more ..
I love etsy.com for their handmade clothing , makeup , and accessories too .
