You really can walk in Oprah's shoes
Now you really can walk in Oprah Winfrey’s shoes.
She cleaned out her closet and is donating clothes, shoes and accessories for a charity auction on eBay. Proceeds will benefit the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy in South Africa.
The auction, featuring 150 pieces — from clothing to shoes to accessories, will be be from March 1-11.
The talk show host is parting with everything from a Barry Kiesselstein-Cord handbag to a jacket she wore as part of the Chicago delegation for the 2016 Olympic bid in Copenhagen. Through the cleaning, she developed a new perspective on her own style. “In the past, I’ve gotten talked into a lot of trends,” she said. “But I don’t have to be on anyone’s best-dressed list. I’m really just trying to become more of myself.”
While the closet-cleaning is for a a good cause, it also caused Winfrey a moment or two of reflection. “There was a time when I had to budget for clothes, and I still do so subconsciously,” she said. “Early in my career, when I was an anchor-woman, I had a beige suit, a navy suit and a black suit. Period. And I would just interchange them. Even now, wasting money on clothes makes me crazy.”
For more information on the auction, go online to oprah.com/oprahauction. All the money raised will go to Oprah’s Leadership Academy for Girls in South Africa. For a sneak preview at the items included in the Great Closet Cleanout, pick up the March issue of O,The Oprah Magazine.
