I am officially half way through my experiment, and thankfully there has been very little to report. Although it doesn’t make for much good blog reading. I walked the dog today up in the mountains in a new-to-me vintage white rabbit coat, which was very warm and cosy. Fur has really become a part of my every day life, and although I miss some of my non-fur coats (who are feeling quite neglected right now), there has not been a moment this winter where I have been cold.
I will be going to Montreal at the end of this week, and I guess that will be the ultimate fur test. Vancouver can get cold, but it isn’t necessary to wear fur the entire winter, whereas in Montreal, fur can be a lifesaver. One of my favourite quotes from a Montreal-based fur council employee was “I used to hate winter until I bought a fur coat and an SUV. Now I love it.” Looking forward to putting my furs to the ultimate cold-weather test!
