I can not describe how happy I was when Glenda said yes to my "Closet question" last year. 
Finally after 5 or 6 months our schedules matched and so I drove up to her lovely home (1 hour from Amsterdam) last week. 
Six years ago when I just started doing make-up she was one of the first stylist in magazine land that booked me 
and challenged me to work with colors for our editorials. 
Every-time I saw here I was "Wow'd" by her outfits. Always color and prints and clashing them like I would never dare, 
but she pulls it off (even if she is a member of the 50's club (her words:-))
She is a Japan freak and went there lots of times to get inspired for styling jobs and her own style. 
Collects fabulous designer handkerchiefs (look at the openings picture were she stands in front of her collection), scarfs, socks and fabulous bracelets. 
Her closet is one to die for!!!!   

Dear dear Glenda thank you for sharing your insanely fabulous "closet" and drawing those amazing self-portraits :-) See you soon!
