Are you sure it was real fur?  I am wearing a faux fur jacket for my wedding.

Maybe it’s fake fur?

i thought you were going to say that it was super weird that they’re just creating wedding shoots instead of featuring regular weddings.

Hmmm I agree, I think bloggers shouldn’t censor their comments unless they are inappropriate or personal attacks, which it doesn’t sound like yours was.

 Maybe she knows there is no justification for supporting the fur industry? Or maybe she truly does believe it’s okay and just doesn’t want any controversy on her blog. But either way she should have at least allowed your comment to remain.

 I love SMP but this kind of changes the way I look at it…

I have zero problem with fake fur. I like fake fur, in fact. I think, though, that the blog should indicate if the bolero is real or fake fur. And censorship is not OK no matter what, as long as you weren’t really inappropriate with your comment.

It’s faux. It says it right in the blog.

I can understand being upset, but also appreciate that she may have felt as though your comment was off-topic or potentially hurtful to those who’ve chosen to incorporate similar aesthetic elements without harming animals.

As for censorship, it may seem like bad form, but bloggers aren’t out of line in removing comments, I don’t think.  We invite people to our wedding receptions, but if they begin behaving in ways that we deem disruptive or offensive (to US, not to the world at large), we’re entitled to ask them to leave or have them removed, no?

Well, luckily we all are entitled to our own option.  I like faux fur.  I don’t own any real fur, and probably wouldn’t ever own any.  Actually, the only faux fur item I have is for my wedding.  I don’t think fur is a trend – it is a personal choice.  I don’t advocate it.

She doesn’t owe you anything.  People can wear whatever they want.

But in the same breath, do you eat meat?  I’ve never understood people who are so anti-fur, but don’t mind a big juicy steak.

Um, maybe she doesn’t care? Maybe it’s an old stole?

My mom has mink coats in her closet…still wears them b/c they’re “classy in a vintage way”.It’s part of an older generation thought that’s dying out with our generations. I don’t like ’em–they can hide in the closets!

I wouldn’t think twice about somebody wearing a fur bolero in a shoot–the vintage look is in and fur is vintage. I think most people are not on board with the idea of REAL fur, but find fake fur totally acceptable in both ethical and fashion trends.

I don’t see the big deal. I’d delete your comment, too, if you implied animals were skinned alive to make the fur if in fact, they weren’t! Maybe she doesn’t want a blog war on her hands???

just because you personally dont like fur doesnt mean millions of us out here agree. i love fur.  i love the way it feels.  i love the way it smells.  and i love the way it keeps me warm – being from MI, most of the people I know own some type of fur – trimmed hat, gloves, trimmed coat, full fur coat, etc.  i love leather. i love meat. and i KNOW that you cant possibly wear leather or eat meat based on your beliefs, right? maybe she deletes all negative posts?  i would probably delete your post too if i – the blogger – deemed it too inflammatory or inappropriate for my personal blog.  if it bothers you that much, stop reading.

@ejs – Totally agree re: real fur being part of the older generation. My G-ma has a bunch of real fur but I don’t know anyone else who has anything but faux.

And I honestly don’t think that faux fur in any way promotes real fur – it’s faux for a reason, cause some people dont WANT real fur anymore.
