Reader Pickles: "What's The Verdict On Vintage Fur?"

"Cold In Chicago" from Chicago has a fashion pickle she needs solved: "Dear Refinery29, I am in a pickle, for real. I am against buying real fur, I think it's pretty unnecessary with all the amazing faux options we have available to us. But recently, I inherited a vintage fur from my grandmother, and it's beautiful. I'd love to wear it, but I'm not sure it's, like, kosher? What's the verdict on vintage vs. new fur? Is vintage slightly more okay, or still pretty wrong?"
