THE FUR IS FLYING:
DISCLAIMER: Rules and dressing-to-your-gender NEVER apply to the gays.
With that said, we have been foaming at the mouth (call us, rabid for fur) over these Celine fur accessories for Spring-Summer 2013. They are women's. Which presents some problems: too narrow and never a size in the double digits to fit our flat-footed feet. TRUST or we would buy them. Not really!! They're made with fur. Since we are veggie and animal-friendly, that goes against everything we believe in. So......
And besides, Celine does not have a men's line nor can we wait for another retailer to offer it to the male consumer. (Everything you see in Womenswear usually takes 6 months to a year to wash over to the men's side. Same colors, silhouettes, ideas).
Well, we ain't waiting a year.
Thus, we have dusted off our old Abercrombie & Fitch (Mountain Pond) footwear from 2004. AND, they are made with faux-fur, which fits our animal/veggie-friendly ethics anyway!!!
We will be featuring our footwear with everything that Celine has offered in the S/S 2013 campaign. A/F faux-fur sandal with: a). black "leather" trousers b). black silk-satin pants c). natural linen canvas trousers d). white charmeuse trousers
Side note: Most of these easy, breezy aforementioned trousers (some with drawstrings) can be found on the cheap at stores like H&M, Club Monaco, TopShop.
In addition, we will feature the shoes with denim, and, with our bermuda/walking shorts.
Who knew Abercrombie was so far ahhhhhhhhhead with this trend.... a SOLID 9 years ahead!!!! Ehhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
TIp: For those of you that NOW want a pair of these A/F faux-fur "Mountain Pond" flip flops-- from 2004-- so you too can follow our lead and this trend, may we recommend a secondary market for acquiring said shoes, like Ebay!!
