NEW WORK: BEAUTY BOUQUET
While doing a trend report for the babes at Elle.com I couldn’t help noticing all the floral inspired launches this season. From peony polish to violet lip lacquer, spring makeup is all about pretty hues plucked from the garden. I rounded up some of my favorite picks inspired by flowers to get your routine in full bloom.

TRACEY LOMRANTZ LESTER, GILT GROUP
"I spent almost eight years in magazines before I made the move to Gilt Group—I was both insanely nervous and obnoxiously excited and the first couple of months here have exceeded all of my expectations. I had some knowledge of e-commerce from some of the cool projects I’d worked on at Glamour, but working for a pioneering company like Gilt is a whole different game. It's one thing to have good taste and be able to spot trends, but it's something else entirely to package those trends, present them to our members in a way that feels exciting and actually get them to shop (an enormous endeavor that I never had to worry about when I was an editor). I’m looking at fashion through a whole different lens, and it's such a gratifying experience. I work closely with our buyers to decide which trends we're going to invest in and I help editorialize the shopping experience through video, original imagery, interviews, and style advice. Along with my amazingly talented team I create content for our blog. No day is like the one before it—the pace is just astonishing!

LAURE HERIARD DUBREUIL, THE WEBSTER MIAMI
During Paris Fashion Week I caught up with The Webster’s Laure Heriard Dubreuil. Since her boutique stocks some of the best brands, it was no surprise that she turned up to Hotel Raphael clad in envy inducing outfits and packing some serious accessories. Over Ladurée macarons we chatted about her love for Clarins and how she combats jet lag.
