What began as a plan to host a simple gathering became an elevated event. “Leslie Joy's Closet” featured fashion, photography, flowers, food, philanthropy and friendship on a glorious February day.

Why host Leslie Joy’s Closet at my house, when there's a Yellow House Event Venue and Accessoreez Studio?  Yellow is my favorite color after all. Of course we need flowers!  That's where St. Petersburg's Florist Fire came in. Yummy sweets and treats were provided by Puff 'n Stuff and Creative Catering. And guests brought at least one piece of gently loved fashion to donate to Dress for Success.
