Our fashion director, Stacey Jones, scoured the runways of Paris and New York for ten items that every Chicago woman must have for her fall wardrobe. Without further ado, meet your necessities

The fur bag and statement cape are both fugly and ridiculous.

It's bad enough the choices are ugly, but on top of that, the prices are ridiculous! In case you haven't noticed, we are in an economic crisis right now; ordinary women cannot afford $7,000 purses, for God's sake!

Whoa, chill. Fashion starts on the runway. See that gorgeous Burberry aviator jacket? Yeah, that's inspiration to find something similar (and clearly more affordable) to inject in your wardrobe to fit in with the season's trends. Why are you reading about Fall Fashion if you're going to complain about stuff being expensive? So sick of this recession/economic blabber! It's FASHION! Ugh.

Feathers, fur bags and "statement capes?" Count me out. Not even inspired to "find something similar."

I am digging the Fifties style and the slightly flared pants, though.

I am very disappointed in the fashion director for considering fur anything fashionable and recommending faux four. There is nothing fashionable about cruelty and torture. Women are sexy when they are comfortable in their own skin & not the skin of other animals.
