Here is another re-post in the Saturday morning
This time I am re-posting The Coveteur.
One of my all time favorite blogs,
The Coveteur takes you
all around the world,
into the closets of the famed,
the intriguing and the glamorous.
Its fascinating finding out all
the where’s and the why’s
of celebrity/fashionista closets.
This Coveteur post is about
one of the formost fashion bloggers,
Kelly Framel of The Glamourai.
Reading The Coveteur is addictive,
feels almost voyeuristic,

In addition to being a blogstar, Framel also
does regular consulting, styling and collaborations for big-time brands
like Erin Fetherston, Club Monaco and Forever 21.
She’s even done some
modeling for Coach and Corello– how chic! And although we’re usually
squirming at the sight of creepy crawlers, Framel’s famed collection of
insect pendants had us squealing… with joy!
Her penchant for prints,
polka dots and pretty, lady-like things certainly warmed our hearts upon
arrival- it’s always refreshing to see a girl who doesn’t do the
We’ve seen plenty of good vintage in our time, (it’s
just another day at the office for us) but it was Framel’s pieces from
Feathers that swept us off our feet. Looks like we’re getting on the
next flight to Austin. Yeehaw!
