Should I blow nearly £500 on a faux fur coat?

I love it so
What do others think of the coat... I probably won't end up buying it because that would be pretty silly. But I might.

bee, are you buying the coat as a 'wearing to special occasions' item of clothing, or 'popping out to buy milk and loo rolls' everyday use?

Oh, I wondered when you were going to trot out that old chestnut about growth hormones. You've just let your ignorance show catinboots. They have been banned in the uk for years.

I suggest you get yourself more educated on agricultural practices yourself before you start flinging accusations at others about their ignorance.

As you said, you can't reson with the uneducated, so I'm hiding this thread too.

It's striking coat,I like it but I also think Sesame Street
The camel and pink is lovely though
But I think both overpriced.shop about

Oh, and I missed the glaring mistake in your post. Dairy cows have calves, not lambs.

RaspberrySchnapps Mon 27-Jan-14 07:21:02

that's a lot of money to look like Mr Bump.

why don't you start your own thread, Cat?

catinboots Mon 27-Jan-14 08:58:00

Calves/lambs - whatever. Pissed typo.

Dairy cows are fed hormones. Only synthetic ones are banned. They are regularly administered Oestadiol, Progesterone and Testosterone - unless they are "organic"

And no I won't start my own thread. As stated, I don't give enough of a shit about the animals.

And yes. The coat is still vile

RaspberrySchnapps Mon 27-Jan-14 09:22:08

Really, Cat? you've got a lot to say on the subject, for someone who doesn't care about the animals. It just struck me as peculiar to derail someone's harmless thread when it's so easy to create a proper discussion about animal welfare elsewhere.

What is with MN at the moment? I personally don't like the coat but I'm pretty sure no Mr Bumps were skinned to make it.

Beeyump Mon 27-Jan-14 11:05:20

The image of skinning a Mr Bump! shock
I don't give two hoots if you think it's vile cat, but somehow I would prefer it if you put your opinion more humorously.

catinboots Mon 27-Jan-14 11:35:30

Why ask then?

Beeyump Mon 27-Jan-14 12:10:49

And caramel, I rather like the idea of everyday use - it'd justify the cost a bit! And would just be more fun.

Beeyump Mon 27-Jan-14 12:27:05

I just find you a bit annoying confused But suppose I shouldn't complain about that after starting a thread about a...divisive coat.

dexter73 Mon 27-Jan-14 12:37:56

The caramel is sold out. You will have to stick with cookie monster!

Floisme Mon 27-Jan-14 20:13:40

Beeyump, I have found The Bag to wear with your coat!
Warning: I posted it on the bag-love thread before I thought of you so you may need to move quickly .....

And it's probably real fur so catinboots can get one too smile

caramelchaos Mon 27-Jan-14 20:16:49

after all the excitement that your coat has caused, you have to buy it now. And it will forever go down in history as your dairy cow growth hormone coat!

dexter73 Mon 27-Jan-14 20:17:46

Awesome bag Floisme!! It's fox fur so that opens up a whole new can of worms shock

Floisme Mon 27-Jan-14 20:20:37

I know Dexter. And Catinboots can even make her own grin
Sorry, Op.

Beeyump Mon 27-Jan-14 20:58:46

Dairy cow growth hormone coat - a coat to be reckoned with. I love the bag!!

Floisme Mon 27-Jan-14 23:00:45

So pleased you like it, Beeyump! I'd better run and tell them on the bag-love thread that it's taken.

Beeyump Mon 27-Jan-14 23:08:18

grin

Beeyump Mon 27-Jan-14 23:14:16

But I love this more!

Floisme Mon 27-Jan-14 23:15:39

shock
Where did you find that??

Floisme Tue 28-Jan-14 07:09:04

But mine goes with your coat! It is all matchy matchy.

TheLeftovermonster Tue 28-Jan-14 07:29:03

I like the coat!

But, you'd have to wear it with Adidas tracksuit bottoms and trainers occasionally, just for a laugh.
