Maybe a turtleneck has to be mesh and cleavage baring to be considered fashionable, like the one Kim Kardashian wore last week. I'm not even sure Joan Rivers and the E! crew would approve of that fashion choice. Perhaps if I had the on-trend hair, with its distinct part and long strands cascading over my collar bones, then my daughters wouldn't criticize my clothing choice. Bonus: The hair might conceal the collar.
On a serious note, I have to share this link to an article that I found when I was looking up angora rabbits: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2510641/Cruel-truths-angora-fur-trade-revealed-shocking-video.html. The internet has brought the world together, exposing humans from different cultures and ways of life, in ways that touch us and alarm us to our core. This is one of those stories that stays in your mind well after the images fade. I am not a PETA extremist. I am probably a lot like you in showing compassion towards any kind of life. I challenge you and your conscience to click on that link and still buy something containing angora hair or fur after learning where it likely originated.
A few years back, the public was disgusted and outraged after an undercover investigation exposed the use of dog fur on coat trimmings falsely labeled as synthetic materials. What about the labels that clearly state the use of fur, even just a little? The small percentages in our clothing equates to immeasurable suffering for animals. I confess that I thought the rabbits were shaved like sheep. Today, as in hours ago, I know better. I share this information with you so that when you're out shopping in the coming weeks you can either contribute to this practice or make a statement with your wallet.
I debated whether or not to post this last part and then I thought to myself, how could I not? Thanks for reading.
