THE WOODLANDS, TX – (KHOU/CNN) - A Texas socialite's lavish three-story closet was burglarized Friday night.

The thief nabbed three Birkin bags worth $60,000 each and then filled those purses with even more expensive jewels for a $1 million haul.

"This guy was professional. He used a glass cutter," Theresa Roemer said.

Whoever broke into her house knew exactly what they were doing and exactly where to go.

After taking out the glass in a downstairs restroom, the thief headed straight for Roemer's three-story closet, which is loaded with millions in jewels, bags, furs, shoes and clothing.

"All my Rolexes, my Cartiers, this was full of Chanels, Chanel watches and Cartiers and Guccis," Roemer said.

She and her husband had gone out for a quick dinner about 9:30 p.m. She did not set the alarm or lock her closet.

"Normally I keep this locked because this is my safe,” she said. “If this would have been locked, it would have been much harder to break because this is an inch-and-a-half thick."

One of her security cameras recorded the thief carefully covered head to toe in a jumpsuit, hoodie, mask and gloves.

Roemer says the thief was inside the mansion 40 minutes, and Montgomery County authorities do not believe it was an inside job.

“They said it was very professional, like too professional," she said. "The police said it could have been somebody that, like I said, saw all the publicity, Google Earthed it, figured it all out, flew in here, who knows?"

Roemer and her famously lavish closet have been in the news lately because she hosts charity events in here. There is even a champagne bar.

She has helped raise millions for places like Texas Children's hospital and Child Legacy International.

Some of what was taken is irreplaceable.

"He took heirloom items that were passed to me from my husband's mother that has passed away," Roemer said. "I mean, I don't care about all this crap. I really don't care about this crap. I care about the stuff that was passed to me."

She says the feeling of violation victims have cuts across all income levels.

"No one deserves this,” she said. “I don't care if you're wealthy. I don't care if you're poor. Your personal belongings are your personal belongings."
