ABC7Chicago – The Doctor of Closetology
“The Closet is not a room to hold clothing but a room to hold emotions,” says Jackie Walker. She calls herself the “Doctor of Closetology” because she has prescribed cures for self-esteem through her “Inside-Out” wardrobe advice. “It’s not about clothes! It’s about the way you feel about yourself” is her message. She has made “House Calls” across the nation and taught the art of stressless dressing.

Annette Pecora of Glencoe was more than ready for 70 degrees.

Few threw caution and coats completely to warm winds. But after a miserable slog through January and February, Chicagoans lightened up for the mini-heat wave in their own mini-ways.
