UPDATE: While you embark on fall shopping excursions, get a little inspo for what makes a lasting impression. This story was originally published on April 9.
There's nothing wrong with a little envy every now and then, right? Sometimes it's even inspiring. We put our closet envy to work, and found out what some of Chicago's most stylish ladies, the ones with truly killer wardrobes, thought of as their most prized fashion possession. We required photo evidence, of course, and we're showing off all the sartorial rarity and the wonder that lives inside Chicago's most coveted collections. We've got handmade treasures, luxe goodies bought for a steal, and one-of-a-kind wardrobe gold you can only dream about. What's your absolute favorite, can't-live-without-it fashion find? Share your envy-worthy merch in our comments section, and see if it stacks up against the loot we discovered!
