The fabulous shoe's of the Duchess of Windsor, most designed by Roger Vivier.
I have long had an obsession with closets and dressing rooms. I think my fascination began around the age of ten. Growing up, the favorite place to hide from my three sisters was my own walk-in closet. I would spend hours daydreaming, reading books and browsing teen magazines—complete luxury.
I am still captivated with closets and I love nothing more than peering into other people's private spaces and dressing rooms. In my opinion, the rooms belonging to Aerin Lauder, Eva Jeanbart-Lorenzotti, Amy Fine Collins and Duchess of Windsor rank at the very top.
I now have a new closet to add to my list of favorites—Closet Couture! Closet Couture is a brilliant online fashion network that allows you to connect with like minded individuals, stylists, and designers, in order to share ideas and seek advice.
Anchored around virtual closets, Closet Couture provides an easy way to manage wardrobes, upload photos, sell or swap clothes, hire stylists, shop for the season’s most coveted pieces and share web links.
Closet Couture is the brainchild of Christine Elia. “I could easily go online and find the next big band or up and coming artist. That got me thinking, why isn’t there a similar venue for designers and people in the fashion industry?” In order to help realize her vision, she recruited a sterling team of advisory board members, most notably Eva Jeanbart Lorenzotti, Philippe Soussand and Constance Klein.
It seems my fate to be drawn to the wonderful world of online networks as of late. First it was Facebook, then A Small World and now Closet Couture! Between blogs and social networking there are simply not enough hours in the day!
