Are Fur Boots a Good Idea?

August 16th, 2010

oc aw

Last year I complained about animal fur being used everywhere.  This year I’m even more appalled when I see boots covered with fur.

First of all,  no matter where the fur came from, it’s just plain ugly to have strands of hair hanging on the side of a shoe. Not sure what the designers were thinking when they came up with the idea,  maybe it’s “lots of women want to look like they’ve just escaped from the zoo”??

Secondly, if fur is the only option, can they at least dye it to a more pleasant color so it doesn’t give me the creeps?  (Hey, I’m talking about the Alexander Wang Polina Fur Ankle Boot and the Opening Ceremony Faux Fur Boot)  If I wake up in the mid of the night and see these things lying around in a corner, I’ll RUN!

Girls, if you have to have one of these, please, try the less scary versions from Louboutin and Blahnik.  Although you may still risk being sent back to the zoo, at least you’ll be recognized as an animal with more sophisticated taste :)

I recently bought a sale item from them and found out they not only offer free shipping, but also free return shipping. This is really something for a company based outside the US.  It so happened that I had to return the same item twice, and they paid for shipping (duty included) as well as return shipping both times, with no questions asked. Great customer service I have so say!

YLighting is Modern Lighting


Quick! YLighting is giving 35% discounts on all Flos lighting with free shipping! I’ve been eyeing the beautiful Spun Light T Table Lamp and the Glo-Ball series for years, maybe now is the time to finally own one of them.

Even when I’m not shopping for lighting, I love to spend hours browsing theYLighting store . I especially love to read the reviews under each product, seeing the different experiences people have with the lights and the creative ways the lights are being used is fascinating. From the reviews, I noticed more and more interior designers are ordering from this online store. Great, now I can get my hands on the same stuff that the designers have access to!
