On Prognostication

As a result of the "weakening dollar," the hot and hautter European fashions are more expensive for patriots than ever:
"Things are so expensive overall that it's really extraordinary," said Julie Gilhart, the fashion director at Barneys New York. "If you want a well-tailored suit, don't even think of anything less than $2,000. If you want an evening gown, you're talking close to couture prices. And if you want a well-made handbag for less than $1,000, you'll be hard-pressed to find it."
Naturally, I presciently realized the cause and its effect very early on and am as proud as I am prada to report that my hamper's fullness is only slightly more so than my wallet's.

Of course I realize that this is a funny little article written for an even funnier and smaller crowd, using sources who are even more obscure in their perspectives and declarations. But, surely, Ms. Gilhart must feel a just a smudgen of silliness when she says things like this, right?
