Tell us what inspired you to start Socialite Auctions.
I always loved the thrill of shopping vintage stores in Austin before moving to Los Angeles. I appreciated the concept of these stores and wanted to take it to a more luxurious experience for women who were constantly updating their wardrobe. Many of them were donating their used Chanel and Prada to Goodwill. I knew they could make money by selling their unwanted items, so I created Socialite Auctions. I also wanted to reach the women who appreciated high fashion but didn’t have the budget to shop for their favorite lines at Neiman Marcus or Saks.
