Meet Lady Jane the fox. She was won at a vintage auction by my beloved who spotted her and knew her and I would be the best of friends. She and I have been in-separable since. She just loves snuggling up with me and keeping me super warm.
On a more serious note..... wearing fur is one of those things I have always been so unsure about. As an animal lover with 8 pets whom I adore completely, I cannot support a fur industry that enables animal cruelty to continue in the name of fashion. Vintage fur though, is so different. If people only ever wore vintage fur, instead of new fur, the demand for new fur would eventually cease to exist, and the modern fur industry would dissolve. So, I will wear vintage fur and only vintage fur, and love these items of the past that would otherwise be chucked to the back of someones attic unloved .

The first was these boots that I have since worn to death, and actually get a little bit sad when I have to wear other shoes from my wardrobe beacuse the boots don't match my outfit (in which case I may have changed the outfit to work with the boots...). I have been wanting a pair of black victorian look boots ever since watching and reading Pride and Prejudice at age 11 (it ties equal with The Lord of the Rings Trilogy as my favourite book), as they are the only type of footwear other than my canvas rubber soled shoes that I can wear walking my doggies, something I do every day. I refuse to wear trainers, as I think that these trainers are appropriate for one place and one place only-the gym (unless you are a runner). Trainers just don't appeal to me at all.
One of the other items on my wish list was a pair of cat eye glasses that I could take the lenses out of (as I don't wear prescription glasses), and these I have been on the look out for for some time. Imagine my happiness when Vanessa from Two Squirrels vintage gifted me these gorgeous on from her own collection!! I was a very happy gal indeed. I love the shape and colour of them and I have been wearing them non-stop.
Thankyou Vanessa!! These glasses are super dooper awesome. Yep.
