As I'm sure everyone knows by now, fur is “in” this season. A way of bringing retro glamour and luxurious texture into your closet, but it couldn't be more controversial. We've all seen the red paint thrown at stars who wear fur as an anti-fur statement, but is there a grey area for vintage fur?

Ask most vintage fashionistas and most of them will admit to having some fur in their closet, be it faux or real (vintage). The issue is: If the real fur you own is second hand or vintage does that make it ok?

According to animal rights activists, no. They claim that women who wear fur (real or faux) are glamorizing a material that is now frowned upon and thus cause more real fur to be used. However, in my opinion the damage from vintage or second hand fur has already been done. And there is no point causing waste and more things ending up in a refuse by not using what has already been made.
