Wow, who knew muskrat could look so good!
I know girl.....have you ever tried to wear a fox that was still alive?? I did once and it about scratched my eyes out, lol.Awwww.......at the leemer's :)Steady OnReggie Girl
Interesting piece of history with that letter!
She makes muskrat look good.I'm not a fur girl, but I kind wish it wasn't so wrong to like it.
I don't know about muskrats, but minks are mean little bastards. I wouldn't feel bad wearing one. I'd look a little fruity, but I wouldn't feel bad.
My aunt actually owned a muskrat farm? ranch? bredding place to send their fur to make coats? : ) Great pictures!
I think it's fab. Great picture! And in another place and time. . .I would totally rock that coat.
Is a muskrat like a ferret?
Very classy picture.. people weren't as slobby looking back then, no? And PETA didn't throw buckets of paint back then either.
Awesome photo. My parents have several fur coats in storage that are basically heirlooms. They used to be in the basement closet and I would drag them out and cuddle in them. So wrong, but it felt so right... ;)
My mother owns several furs. She keeps telling me that I'm the lucky recipient when she's no longer around. I hate to tell her that wearing fur just isn't high on my list of things to do!Great photo and letter.
Oh Purveyor of Suspect Cookbooks, have you advised your gentle readers that your MIL attended Colorado Women's College? It was a classy place then, still is, which may explain why your esteemed MIL went there and why she and her colleagues do not look slobby. Slobby young women would not have been admitted to CWC. That doesn't explain your checkered Keds, though.
