“As with my style, I’m a bit of a contradiction in the beauty department, too. While I absolutely love beauty products and am always trying new ones (I probably would have been a beauty editor had I not gone the fashion route), I’m a bit of a minimalist and don’t bother with much makeup. That said, I have always taken good care of my skin and never go to bed without cleansing and moisturizing.”

Occasionally, we come across a home that ticks off all of our Pinterest-dream-life boxes. Y'know, all of the usual fixtures: blown-out, black and white prints, neatly commandeered trays with knick knacks and trinkets from travels around the world, Fornasetti and Diptyque candles, lush coffee table books, massive bunches of fresh flowers and mammoth orchids, luxe ashtrays, all marble everything... and a massive walk-in closet doesn't hurt. In other words, when we walked into Liz Dennery Sanders' West Hollywood home, our eyes lit up like Christmas trees.

After spending what can only be described as a long ass time in said walk-in, we got down to work. And wouldn't you know it, those perfectly arranged set-ups made the perfect home for Sanders' lace-up flats, chain-link sandals and dainty jewelry. And after being handed a flute of champagne (for fuel) we took a detour through Liz's adorable two-year-old's closet (he, too, has a closet twice the size of ours, BTW).

It goes without saying that Sander's eye is the result of working with the greats—make that one of the greatest, the late Liz Tilberis. “I had the great privilege of working at Harper’s Bazaar when Liz Tilberis was at the helm. Not only did Liz have an incredible eye for detail, but she was the antithesis of the stereotypical fashion person. She was warm, gracious and usually had a smile on her face. I always felt that if Liz could be comfortable working in fashion, then I could find a place there, too.” Tired, battered, weary fashion interns of the world, take a mental note: we think that's a pretty stellar sentiment to keep in the back of your head the next time you find yourself deemed responsible for color-coding every item in the beauty closet or any equally impossible task.
