I love this little hat...its old, old, old as the hills, and so soft. Its really for a child, but...um, I have a small head. What are your thoughts on wearing fur? I have a few vintage pieces from my family that I love to wear, and I am always secretly paranoid that someday someone will freak out on me when I am wearing them, but people actually seem to like it. I get petted a lot, which is...awkward, but kind of sweet. I would never, ever buy new fur. Its such a vanity item; we don't need fur to keep warm any more, and we don't need to keep killing animals to create new furs when there are already so many beautiful antique and vintage pieces languishing on the racks of thrift stores for next to nothing. I hate to think of animals suffering in the here and now just so someone rich and pretentious can look rich and pretentious in a brand new fur coat.
Also, isn't it funny that I'm concerned about fur, when my skirt, my boots, and the buttons on my coat are all leather? Hmmm. Am I getting too deep with this? Probably. Let's talk about something wonderful! Like my earrings! They are also old as the hills (1910s-20's), and I love them to an unspeakable degree.
