I know that fur is a hot button topic for many and whereas I don't want to get into that debate, I will say that I have no issues with heritage or vintage fur. In my opinion, the fur was taken years and years ago and I would rather see it used and respected than simply thrown in the garbage.
That said, I didn't inherit any fur from my family, so with the exception of a few vintage coats with fur on the collar, I don't have any. However, when out antiquing I've always been on the look out for a vintage fur shrug. I think they are so lovely, versatile and warm! They can be thrown on with a pair of jeans or a dressy dress. One of my favorite things about these furs are the ladies initials that are almost always sewn into the lining of the fur. I love thinking about the women who wore these!
I found a really pretty one last year at, of all places, the flea market! Since it was already late spring I bought the fur for a song. However, it didn't have any initials in it, and I decided it would be fun to add my own. For a little twist I had it done in hot pink! I love the way it turned out.
