What Would PETA Say About This?

To fur or not to fur, that is the question? For me the answer to that one is easy. This Mummy is faux fur all the way! No, the real question is whether or not a "real life" person can pull of one of this season's hottest trends; the fur vest. I'm thinking that sadly,  I am going to have to give this one a big thumbs down. 

Okay, I must admit I'm intrigued. I see celebs like Rachel Bilson,  Elle Macpherson, the Olsens and Kate Moss wearing these fierce vests and they really do look amazing in them. It seems like such a easy way to really style up a basic outfit and stay warm at the same time. Living in New England this would be a very good piece to wear. The thing is that if I saw someone (including myself) walking down the street with a big ball of fake fur on their vest? Well, let's just say I don't think I could take them all too seriously...if you know what I mean. A little too much Bigfoot and not enough Rachel Zoe.

I'm going out on a limb and am going to say that this is one trend that is better suited for the runway, than it is for the everyday. That, however, is not going to stop me from trying on EVERY single one that I see... just to make sure.
