    Last night, I caught an episode of the television program, "Strange Inheritance", which featured VFG member Charlotte Smith and her amazing historic dress inheritance and collection.

    The show also featured VFG member Karen Augusta of Augusta Auctions, who appraised the collection. You can check a glimpse of the episode here ...

    It is always compelling for me to see how people with wealth collect. I scrounge and save pennies here and there in order to be able to find a treasure.

    I wonder do people with money have teams of people that search the world for them?

    I see Sotheby's auction catalogs of personal collections and I envy, not so much the collections, but the space wealthy people have in which to utilize and house their collections.

    Sure Karl Lagerfeld can have an apartment with nothing but Memphis Design furnishings. What did his other homes have inside them?

    This is a lifestyle I will never be able to fully comprehend because I either pay my heating bill or buy a sweater!

    Cool! Can't wait to see it. Breaks my heart to see clothes locked up in a warehouse. If that were my collection by some miracle of inheritance, I'd sell off anything more recent than mid-60s (except if there may be a Halston in there), anything that doesn't fit me, and wear the rest.

    I wonder if it's locked in certain locations? There are a few different links in YouTube and hoping that one of them will work for you -- maybe try this one and see...
