All About the Benjamin, Faux Faux Fur & Edible Furious Vulvas

The Banjamin from NOVACAS is making us drool. We love the direction in which NOVACAS has been going, first with their sleek Leo boot, and now with this smart cap-toe ankle boot. Keep ’em coming, NOVACAS!


Our pal Pierre, from the HSUS recently exposed on the news how real dog fur is being sold as faux. I have little patience as it is for idiots who think fur is fabulous, and this just adds fuel to the fire! Grrrr!

    Thanks for the link to the fur investigation. That’s scary. Luckily, even fake fur isn’t my style, but its good to know we might can’t always trust the labels. I’ll inspect everything a lot closer now.
