Is there anything in particular that you'd never buy at a vintage store?
If it was an ethical issue, sure. I never get involved with illegal or endangered animal skins—or ivory, which used to be hugely popular. I try and avoid anything with bad—I don't want to call it karma, but just bad vibes. I just don't want to support that in general.
That's an interesting stance, because I hear lots of people say that buying vintage fur is somehow more ethical than buying it new.
I mean, I do have fur in my wardrobe, but only if it's been gifted to me. I don't buy it. Fur doesn't really move me, you know? And plus, once vintage fur falls apart, it gets pretty nasty!
