If you haven't read the book or seen the movie, if you're not into antiques and have never needed to supplement your closet space, you might not be familiar with the piece of furniture that stars in the new movie The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, based on the first in the series of C.S. Lewis children's books.

Teachers should be able to glean a couple of fashion tips this season as the hit TV show "Glee" returns. The show's fashion — especially that of guidance counselor Emma Pillsbury [played by actress Jayma Mays] — has captured audience members as much as the punchy dialogue and toe-tapping renditions of catchy pop songs.

There's no ignoring fashion this season. Proportions have changed so dramatically that this fall's hot styles do not live happily with holdovers from the '80s. Women who have been getting by with minor adjustments for the past few years will have to make a turnaround if they want to stay in step.That turn depends less on a totally new wardrobe, however, than thinking about the new long, clean and narrow essentials.Significant purchases now have to be edited with an eye to tomorrow, which means finally letting go of shoulder pads, stiletto heels and fussy girlie suits.
