Fur FlyingIt was cold. Really cold today. There were even some flurries as we walked home this evening (two men on a corner asked my kids if they were going to make a snowman).
What happens when it's really cold in Paris? FUR. I could not believe how much fur I saw on the streets. I think there was a general agreement with all the rich women... they called each other up and said today is the day to show off our coats! Here are some of the pictures I took. It's all fur.
Is there a PETA chapter in France?

Oops, was that bad?

However, the best is one time when I went to the local grocery, and the lady in front of me (who was probably about 70) was wearing a mink stole, but KNOTTED around her neck like it was a scarf. So odd!

Alessandra, Thank you for your comment. Nice to see you here. It has been cold this week. Is the fur coat really that much warmer? Just wondering... is it warmer than a down coat?
RB, Yes, BB is very outspoken about the issue. You don't read about her too much though. Maybe she needs to come to Paris.

I agree about the fur, I have seen an awful lot of it and it bothers me. This woman on the metro was rubbing her fur coat against me, don't like that at all!
I don't wear fur because i just don't like how it looks and I love my cat and it makes me think of my kitty. So... there you have it.
Well now that I can access your site, I must explore! A whole new blog for me to get addicted to. Yay!

My aunt just came from France and bought me a "fake fur" jacket-- claiming that "everyone has one in France"-- I just CANNOT imagine myself walking down the street with that-- even a fake one!!!
