Being fashionable isn't about killing helpless animals for fur or leather. Next time you go shopping, please ask yourself, "Do you really need more fur/leather shoes or bags? Are fur/leather goods really a must? Would you become less fashionable without them?"
Please ALWAYS choose a more COMPASSIONATE and GREEN way to live stylishly.
