For those of you out there who happened to watch Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve this year, you might have noticed a one Miss Kellie Pickler (who’s VEG, btw) decked out in a lavish “fur” coat.
But fear not fellow eco-heads, Kellie’s publicist has just confirmed that the coat was indeed faux and from Cincinnati-based Donna Salyers’ Fabulous Furs.
But here’s the question: is faux-fur REALLY a good idea? Sure, you and I know it’s fake, but what about the millions watching who might justify buying real fur after seeing their favorite star decked out in what appears to be the cruel stuff? Drama, right?
Well here’s a suggestion: grab yourself one of the HSUS’s Fur-Free pins (or find me on the street – I always have a few extra in my pocket that I’m eager to share) and wear it proudly on all your faux-fur coats. This way you’ll not only be promoting your badass cruelty-free lifestyle, but also helping a really great organization get some free publicity.
So in spirit of Beyonce’s hit song Single Ladies, always remember that when it comes to faux-fur: if you wear it then you shoulda put a pin on it.
