OK ladies. Do me a favor here. Explain to me the fur obsession. I just don’t get it!

Even when assuming that all of it is fake (which is sadly not the case), I don’t understand the attraction. I’m totally with you on loving soft, cozy, warm pieces and pieces that add a little texture.

But almost all of these fur pieces that are floating around in stores and on fashion bloggers everywhere are… dare I say it? Kind of hideous.

First of all, they’re almost always boxy. And in my opinion, that’s never attractive. Who wants their shape almost completely stripped from them? Not this girl!

Next, they’re often ratty looking. Even the expensive pieces. My hair is wild and frizzy enough. I don’t need an article of clothing that needs to be tamed as well.

And lastly, do you really want to walk around looking like a cave woman with an animal strapped to your back? I just don’t see anything glamorous about the things.

Granted, there have been other trends that I was totally against that I slowly and madly fell in love with (I’m talking to you, oxfords!). But I don’t think this is one I’m budging on.

What do you think? Are you into fur?
