Inside THE CLOSET at Harper's Bazaar

Talk about a magic carpet ride.  Here's a place I never expected to be:  Inside The Closet at Harper's Bazaar.  And by The Closet, I mean the kind top fashion magazines keep, where designer goodies come, go and sometimes stay; the kind made famous by Sex and The City and The Devil Wears Prada.  I thought The Closet was a made up movie moment urban legend, until I met Lisa Luna, associate editor at Harper's Bazaar, and she confirmed that yes, it does exist.  And, oh, would I like to see it?  Umm, are you kidding?  And so I went last month to a skyscraper scattered with couture confections and tubs of lipsticks, stilettos propped up against skylines, the opening pages of the March issue laid at my feet.  I'm sworn to secrecy on the selections until that issue's publication, but here's a tiny taste I can reveal -- bookshelves of shoes arranged in a color coordinated rainbow.  Be still my heart.  It's not often life gives you a movie moment better than the big screen.  This was.  Thank you, Lisa.

    1. Thank you, Heather, you are very sweet. I wish I could say all my time the past month was as fun as this! I was there to write a story on the magazine, not the other way around, but how lovely of you to ask.

  8. Must have been something to see. I noticed a lot of comments about 'luck' but I know luck had less to do with this experience than hard work. Well done!

    1. From your mouth to Glenda's ears!!

      It really was such a fun fashionista moment visiting The Closet, roaming the chic office floor, catching up with old friends and making new ones. You are a gracious hostess and wonderful ambassador for the magazine. I definitely will take you up on your offer to return -- next time with cocktails after the couture. Merci encore!
