But You Wear Leather Don't You?

No doubt I’m not alone when I say I like stylish clothes. And one thing I love about faux fashion is that it not only looks hot, it’s a great way to show others that you don’t need to be cruel to be cool (and in fact there’s nothing less attractive than someone draped in the skin of a dead animal!).

One of my fave wardrobe additions of late is my faux leather jacket from Casual Guy (pictured below). When I’m wearing this bad boy and speaking up for animals, I often have people say something like “But you wear leather, don’t you?” and I think BAM! 'time to save lives' and then I respond: “Thanks for asking! Actually no, I don’t wear animal skins. I was horrified when I found out cows that die for leather often have their tails broken and chilli rubbed in their eyes before they are killed. Oh this jacket, it’s fake leather. Have you ever worn fake leather before?”


Here are a few other discoveries I just had to add to my wardrobe:


These 100% non-leather shoes (above) are from Spendless


There's plenty of non-leather belts out there like this Hurley belt made of PVC


If you want something real bad, just keep looking. I wanted one of these jackets for ages, and I finally found a non-wool jacket at Dangerfield.

So how do you strut your hot stuff for the animals? Have you got an awesome tip for compassionate fashion? Leave a comment.

Heh. Good idea. Shockin pose wink
It's simple really- if you really feel that wearing the skin of another animal ain't right, don't do it.
Rock on cotton socks!

Two great things about shoes made of synthetic materials..

1. they are cruelty free
2. they are also cheaper than dead cow shoes.

I can't believe you guys are not more organic???

There's plenty of choice gear made from hemp out there,, you'll be pleasantly surprised @ whats available now,, & it lasts 10 times longer than cotton.

I'd rather go naked than give any more of my cash to OPEC.

Hope I don't sound negative , but why promote products that are manufactured from crude OIL?

Whats wrong with organic plant based clothing & accessories?
At least they are from renewable resources.
