Sometimes things shoot off into popular territory and I sit back and am all, “What the whaaaaat?” And sometimes instead of living by the age old rule of If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all, I have to let loose and spew some steam. Today’s What the What?!: furry fashion.
I’ve talked about it before when I just didn’t get the whole Céline furry shoe thing. We decided that maybe, maaaaaybe they were OK for Halloween (if Big Bird is your thing)–only if they were on super discount from the thrift store down the street. I figured it was just a weird, out there thing to grab attention at fashion week.
But then I was flipping through fashion magazines while the girls were in the bath the other night (the only time I get such a luxury, by the way) and saw I spread in Elle (probably last month’s issue since I’m so woefully behind on my magazine stack). It was an accessories trends piece entitled “Plush Life” that included the most brightly colored furs ever. I almost fell into the tub.
It seems that in some circles these obnoxiously colored (not to mention obnoxiously priced!) accessories are all the rage. I. Just. Don’t. Get. It.
