I love printed suede. How luxe. And I love seeing a designer flat, instead of the usual heel. And this one’s by Manolo Blahnik. It’s the Zebra-Print Ballerina Slipper, or simply, Lee. She is divine, and she is $495 at Neiman Marcus.

FICA (Fur Information Council of America) is holding their Fur Fashion Week. Of course, I don’t care to cover the styles and I’ve already given my harshest opinion, but I’d like to cover something.
Kathleen Fasanella pointed out that she dislikes the nonuse of the furry animal’s meat and Gloria agreed. Then Julie brought up a little known aspect of the fur business, “Actually as I learned today people do eat the meat of animals killed for fur, in fact sometimes it is even more ethical than just leather.”
It’s about the treatment they endure too- and who really eats the meat? Maybe the families that farm- but can they really eat hundreds of mink meat? Or genitally electrocuted [chinchilla] meats?
I agree with Gloria, and I disagree with a fur fashion week and the fur practice as a whole. There could possibly be a correct way to use pelts for apparel, but we don’t see it now. Will we ever? Do we want that, or should the fur trade end completely?

How exciting! I’m just glad to see this photo, as taken with credit to Almost Girl.
Julie said this woman didn’t look too excited, but I know why. Woman, put down that skirt!
