Quiet day off today. Straighten up the house. Do a little work in the morning. Catch up on blogging after the trip. Run out for a few errands then have a nice dinner with Mr. Diabolina.

To fur or not to fur? That is one of the big fashion questions! One that I haven't fully resolved yet.
Five years ago, a friend of my mom's was cleaning out her INSANE closet before moving back to England. She gifted me with quite the treasure trove of designer items: a Dolce and Gabanna suit, a couple pairs of boots, some purses, a faux fur jacket and this real fur vest.
It is beautiful and over the top and warm. And kinda creepy.
Today marks only the third time I've ever worn it. The second time was in December out in Hollywood. The first was at an Italian fashionista's wedding reception years ago.
I'm always a little afraid about how people are going to react when I am out wearing this vest. Thus, clearly, I am not a loud and proud fur advocate.
I do wear leather. Am pretty sure I could never go vegan in my clothing options nor my dietary consumption. Kudos to Stella McCartney for doing it though. She is one of the few designers out there who refuses to use fur and leather ever.
I think I could get behind the anti-fur argument. Not in a extremist-Peta-throwing-paint-on-celebrities way. After all, I don't think everyone has to live by my personal moral standards. That would make me buddies with George Bush and the Taliban, right?
I believe everyone is free to educate themselves and make the choices that are right for them - in and out of fashion.
That being said, happy voting tomorrow. Change in this country is imminent!
