My $500,000 'she-cave': Former Miss Texas opens the doors to her two-level, 3,000sq ft closet and the designer treasures within

One woman has created a 3,000sq ft closet so over-the-top that she calls it a ‘she-cave.’

Theresa Roemer, a former Miss Texas United America, enlisted designer Thom Anderson to add the luxurious three-story space to her Woodlands, Texas, home, which houses her handbags, shoes and other accoutrements. It cost roughly $500,000 to build.

‘It started years ago when I had a closet party and all the girls came over and they said, “I just wish it was bigger,”‘ she told the Houston Chronicle, adding: ‘Since then it’s just been getting bigger and bigger and bigger, it’s like a “she cave.”‘

She went on to explain the layout of the boutique-like space.

‘The third floor houses all my furs and big hats, you come down the spiral staircase to the second floor which is where I get my hair and make up done, it also houses all the shoes from Louis Vuitton and Gucci,to my tennis and work out gear,’ she said.

‘Then you come down a floating staircase, which is just magical, and the first floor is where you pick out your jewelry and bags,’ she continued, noting that it typically takes her 45 minutes to get ready.

In fact, the closet even features a champagne bar – perfect for hosting events to benefit charitable causes.

‘Yes, it’s full of amazing things,’ Mrs Roemer told Houston’s KHOU, ‘but this closet was built and intended for fundraising.’

Roemer has used the hot-ticket space to raise money for causes such as the American Heart Foundation and Texas Children’s Hospital.

But it also serves the style needs of those close to Mrs Roemer.

‘My daughter always says that she doesn’t need to go to the store; she can just shop my closet!’ she told Neiman Marcus’s blog.

‘And of course I do let a few, very special friends borrow my Birkin bags.’
