venus in whatevers

thrifted black lace dress, belt and doc martens, vintage fur collar from etsy, joe fresh cardigan, tights and socks

When I first mentioned buying this vintage fox fur collar from Etsy I was faced with a lot of "why"s or sad faces or simply photos of foxes frolicking among flowers. I don't feel bad about wearing the fur of an animal that died 30 years ago, in a farm that more than likely doesn't exist anymore, and supporting a small businessperson in the process. Would it be better if it was thrown away or boxed up in an attic unworn? I don't have any qualms about wearing it.
