Stellar Stilettos

Every once in a while our shoe selection rivals Saks, that is if you are a size 8 or 8 1/2.

Lovely Lanvin

Lanvin Ruffle Top
Alber Elbaz is one of my favorites and it's easy to see why with this ruffled cream top. Whether he is designing an evening dress or a t-shirt, his clothing oozes effortless glamour. This piece is last season, new with tags from Barneys. Size large, originally $475. How about 1/2 price?

I Spy...

I Spy
I Spy: A purple Hermes print, Chanel pearl & ribbon earrings, Dunhill links, a lavender Leiber clutch, Yurman cookie studs, and a diamond & amethyst DY pendant.

Tahari "Daphne" Clutch

I noticed the gold version of the Daphne in Elle Magazine's April "Retail Therapy" shoot with Anna Farris. I wasn't sure about the proportion of the clutch at first, but it does look rather rocking with her loose Ralph Lauren blouse & harem pants.

Tahari has broken all the rules creating a super stylish, but most importantly useful, oversize clutch. Not only can it hold more than just your 3 smallest possessions, but you could probably fit a laptop inside. The design is the perfect combination of slouchy yet structured. It can even double as a pillow! 

The Closet has the most amazing consignors, this is a current season item!

We received this sheer Chanel chiffon top yesterday, and it looks smashing with the deep purple Derek Lam wedges (Size 8) and super high. Accessorize with Lanvin shades and a fluorescent Prada bag SOLD and don't let the weather stand in your way!

Le Couturier

Le Couturier

Finding the right tailor can be quite a task, but once you do you're set for life. Le Couturier is my choice for alterations in the Boston area.

I was first introduced to Dick Robasson (tailor to Ralph Lauren, Gucci, & Loro Piana among others) when he was located near The Closet on Newbury Street. He has moved his business to Central Square, but let me tell you, it is worth the trek. 

There is a reason he was voted Best of Boston last year by Boston Magazine. I recently went in for a special project, the remaking a vintage dress, and although I will have to wait a week, I have no doubt it is in the right hands, and will fit me like a glove when finished.

Just add Jeans

Beguelin Bag, etc

Choose which shoe you like best and then all you need is a pair of jeans!

LV Groom Wallet

Louis Vuitton Groom Wallet

Here is a one of a kind wallet from Louis Vuitton's limited edition Groom collection. Inspired by LV's advertising in the 1920's and reminiscent of the beloved Tin Tin character, this is a rare find.

At The Closet: Derek Lam Dress

This dress may be from Derek Lam's Spring 2004 collection (his second collection ever!) but it's a timeless style, a fine example of the classic & tailored yet modern look that has made him famous.

Stay Stylish & Connected

A piece of fashion advice: Latex leggings should only be worn by Lady Gaga and supermodels...not on the red line with big white sneakers and a sweatshirt.

ALSO The Closet is now on Twitter, so be sure to follow us here and receive up to the moment tweets on the newest arrivals and most amazing deals, some of which we might not always have a chance to post about here.
Happy Spring!

Prada Pouch

Prada bag

The softest lambskin combined with delicate yet detailed hardware and a unique shape make this Prada pouch a must have. Plus, it's got a bit of vintage flair that reminds me of Moschino/the 80's AND a wrist strap. So long impractical clutches! Dangle it from the wrist while wearing your favorite little black dress and a pair of sandals, tough girl chic!

Since it's late in the season, there are some AMAZING deals to be had here at The Closet...like this wool Marc Jacobs collection dress for example. You could always just buy it now, wear it once or twice (it's still very much winter in Boston) and then hide it away until fall!



Here are some treats: Yamamoto sheer cardigan, Rick Owens gray silk dress, The Row black pocket tank, Rajeshpratap Singh silver sheath, The Row jersey dress, and a Dries van Noten slip dress (just needs a little steam) Enjoy!
