I second both ej4y8 and FutureMrsMorgan.
I’m wearing a vintage stole to my vintage styled wedding, which is my choice. Just because you “feel” that it isn’t morally right doesn’t mean that I don’t “think” that it is an appropriate choice for myself. Just as ejs4y8 mentioned, using false reasoning that animals are “skinned alive” does not make a flame war, or pushing your own opinions on others acceptable.
If that’s how you feel about it, then live it. But don’t force others to follow your beliefs, it only detracts from your message.

While you are certainly entitled to your opinion, she is under no obligation to allow you to have free reign to say what you want on her blog. Just like I would not let you come into my house and take a poo in the oven and allow you to stick around. People are weird about their “houses” – virtual or otherwise – that way.
Moreover, she probably deleted your comment because you were wrong – twice – and it’s an incendiary topic and she didn’t want a giant war on her hands.

I don’t care re: fun fur vs. real fur.
I find a lot of people that are “Anti-Fur” aren’t “Anti-Leather”… that to me is a problem. Fur and leather = same thing! lol!

Yeah, I’m really into animal rights and such, but I don’t see how fake fur promotes the wearing of real fur. In fact, fake fur is a safe, humane, and fashionable alternative to wearing real fur.

@Lindsay12.31.2010, I think the difference between wearing fur and eating steak is the fact that one is used for the nourishment of the human body and the other is for the sake of fashion. I’m not taking either side because, well, I just don’t want to go there – but I do think there’s a difference between wearing fur and eating meat. Just my two cents…

Perhaps, but eating meat isn’t a requirement to nourish your body. Ask a vegetarian. It’s a choice, just like wearing fur.

Lindsay, I agree with you.
I’m a vegetarian, but I wouldn’t preach to someone about wearing fur. I expect people to respect my choice, so I respect theirs.

The comments say that it is a faux fur.
edit: Abby the owner of the blog made that comment. I’m guessing she did so after she deleted your comments to help difuse the situation.

@lilyfaith. Thumbs up for being level headed!

@melissa: Me too! It’s so annoying to see photo shoots with models as opposed to real weddings.

Wow…I think Abby has every right to moderate the comments. Furthermore, you were wrong twice, so maybe she just didn’t want a comments war to take place on her blog!
@melissa– I actually like the inspiration to reality feature (as long as they don’t do it too much) because it’s cool to see things that are the exact result of someone’s inspiration board, no holds barred. I can see it getting annoying though if it becomes just as common as the real weddings.
On another note, Mrs. Cowboy Boot was featured on there the other day which I think is so cool!

… if it said it was fake, then the comment was null and void.
