My Fashion Philosophy
I usually avoid buying anything that is full leather (exotics and fur are of course a big no-never bought it). If I do I try to maintain a respect for the creature whose life went into making that item. Earlier I was more open about purchasing leather goods but over the years I'm moving away from it toward different options like canvas (not the most nature-friendly production process but it's getting better), nylon (Prada!) or silks/suedes/velvets.
