Hot Topic: Leather

Here, I was just wondering, do you guys prefer real articles, or just pictures of cute shoes? Tell me! On to the topic...
Leather. Should vegetarian fashionistas wear it? Personally, I don't want to. The reason I don't is probably selfish---I feel incredibly guilty about it, and struggle with my conscience. Not worth it. I do own leather shoes---I hadn't discovered the world of affordable veggie shoes 6 months ago. However, now that I've found Alternative Outfitters, there's NO stopping me!
I know a lot of vegetarians wear leather shoes. They argue that the meat industry is so strong, why shouldn't they wear leftover leather?
Oh no, that's not gonna fly with ME!
See, if you think like that, why are you a vegetarian? If you're saying that wearing leather doesn't make any difference 'cause it's there doesn't make sense. If you think like that, why are you a veggie?? Hello, sasuages are there, but that doesn't mean you should eat them.
There's no excuse for not wearing leather---you can find cheap non-leather shoes in high-street shops, or look online.
PS: If you have leather, don't throw it out. That's wrong, you've already bought the leather, don't waste a life.

I Am So Sorry

You will have to forgive me. I haven't posted in AGES but that was because I was dreaming up this post...
Fur should never be worn be veggie fashionistas. But you knew that. But, unfortunately, fur is back, and while I love fake fur, you'll have to be careful...
Did you know that many shops use rabbit fur in their products?? Too true. So, to make sure you're not wearing one of Bugs Bunnies friends, make sure that the label says 100% synthetic. Otherwise, you never know...
I know some shops 0nly use fur from animals that have been killed for slaughter, and this brings on another debate, pretty much the same as the leather one:
If it's already dead, can you wear it?
Personally, I don't.
Not if I was in the Himalayas and had no shoes and someone said "Hey, Money Miss, here's some shoes!" and they were leather, I wouldn't wear them.
OK, maybe I would.
Coming soon...Hot Topic: Leather!
