Just In: Classic Chanel Bag


Fit for a Queen


We have this dress in the store right now! This simple and flattering design is fit for a queen!

Bottega Veneta Satin Flat

These satin flats are size 38 1/2. They are brand new!

One of our most stylish customers has come to the consensus that if she could only be dressed by one person for the rest of her life, it would be Tomas Maier of Bottega Veneta. I will take the handbags!

For the Boys

A few boxes of 45 Rpm, Engineered Garments and some Visvim has just come in. There are a variety of shirts, denim, and jackets, it's good stuff!

In the Mix

Marni, Etro, Pierre Hardy


If you are like me and wear a lot of black, it's not that easy to just throw on the color come spring. I suggest starting with a shoe, or a printed top, add a pair of skinny black pants and your favorite black blazer. This way you don't look so boring, but you still feel like yourself.

A Modern Mary Poppins

Modern Mary Poppins

Spring is all about mixing fabric, proportion, color, and texture to create a unique look for yourself. Although we stuck to black and white this time, I think it was a success! Ms. Poppins wears a turban hat by Yamamoto, Ann Demeulemeester's cotton print tank, a Margiela ribbon cardigan, voluminous silk Lanvin skirt, and a pair of Costume National sandals. She is carrying a patent Armani bag, and she means business!

Razzle Dazzzle









Academy Awards anyone? The Jewelery alone was Oscar worthy! Ok, so it's not a Fred Leighton but this lovely glass necklace could have held it's own on the Red carpet.

(Perhaps, even paired with a certain pair of emerald earrings)









Pretty Spring Things

Graphic print Calvin Klein, Clu's cozy jersey tunic, Vanessa Bruno romper, Calvin Klein sheath, creamy frock, and plaid jumper.

Marni + Manolo=Urban Glamazon

You can't go wrong with Marni's super soft and slouchy chocolate brown tote. Add some strappy Manolos and voila...perfectly accessorized!

So What Do You Do

There's a nice long interview with Sally Singer, News/Features Director at Vogue on Mediabistro. See, Anna Wintour is not that bad! And, as is the case with most stylish people, Sally shops secondhand. Enjoy!

The Vuittons



Kind of looks like a little family!

Sale of the Day

There are not many stores where you can find a Rick Owens jacket, Marc Jacobs Collection tunic (seen below), and a Proenza Schouler cashmere cardigan for less than $400...but someone quite savvy did today The Closet!


It pays to be a regular!

Bright and Light






Pictures don't do these fabrics justice! A silver leather jacket light and thin as paper, and a two piece dress made of three different panels. Dress up without being weighed down!

Chain Gang

You can't go wrong with black & white. From left: The Row's unconstructed silk jacket, so luxurious (and very small). Then a striped vest from Ann Demeulemeester, the black version atop a cream silk Row tank, and next some of their super skinny stretch cotton leggings (we have two pairs). Mix these together with a pair of ankle boots, a strappy sandal, or even a flat, and you are good to go!

The Look of the Season

Inspiration: Balmain Spring '09



The Closet version (equally stylish, much less expensive, by a few thousand dollars!)



The jeans are Level, top by Lanvin, jacket is Development (probably from back when Phillip Lim was designing), shoes by Jonathan Kelsey.

The peaked shoulders are killer, but I don't think I'm cool enough (or tall enough) to pull them off, maybe you are?!

Animal Instinct

It's all about accessories for spring. From colorful snake prints to feathers in your hair (the 3.1 Phillip Lim headband is most delightful), don't be afraid to mix patterns and textures for a wildly stylish look.

The Perfect Leather Jacket

It is very small and lined in wool & cashmere. Who can guess who made it?!
Hint: It's not Rick Owens

A Tote for a Tuesday

IMG_3927


Take your pick! The chocolate brown quilted caviar Chanel is divine, don't need to sell you on that one. We love the distorted diagonal pattern on the Burberry. There is also a nice black nylon Chanel hidden behind the two as well as a prim gray floral Burberry. Hmmmm look at that stack of orange boxes, wonder what's in there?!

***The Chanel bags have been sold.

Feeling Blue?

IMG_3909

Your friends at The Closet hope that this never ending New England winter hasn't got you feeling down. We are looking forward to spring and all the excitement that comes with the arrival of a new season. Just remember to put on something bright and we promise you will feel better.

Phillip Lim's Gwen Bag

We love this mustard colored satchel. It's a great size and fits perfectly in the crook of your arm. Convenient magnetic slit pockets and a roomy interior make this a useful and fun bag.
