The Camellia turns green...Chanel Fall/Winter collection

"I’d rather go naked than wear fake Chanel”...said Karl Lagerfeld in Harper's Bazaar 2007 Summer issue. Directly referencing Courtney Love’s literal counterfeit faux pas of that year, Lagerfeld eventually and publicly granted Love forgiveness for her deadly fashion sin.

In a quite lengthy conversation with two very fashionable Chicago working girls this weekend, I found it evident that Chicago women still consider Chanel the premier marker of classic and authoritative taste. Is this why some insist on wearing fake Chanel? Chicago boasts one of thirty Chanel boutiques in North America...a good reason why no one should wear a fake. But while for most the prices seem far out-of-pocket, our city has a true gem for the fashion loving and the budget minded.

The place to steal a Chanel deal:

  1. Cosplay costume: the blue suit for Akuma certainly is the most important thing for a Akuma Cosplay fan as it is not usually a easy thing to find the costume you hope, considering the price and quality and any your worry.  I purchased one piece from a Chinese  on the last Halloween. The comfortable fabric and ideal similarities definitely delighted me. But some lolita cosplay lovers tend to make their suits by themselves. When it comes to the uniform cosplay for Akuma, this becomes feasible once again. Without too many complicated accessories, this suit can be done quickly.Just download some clear pictures for role and print them. An experienced tailor will make the suit easily once getting a detailed outline on each part of an outfit.
