Rue How-To: Make Your Own Hand Soap

Generally, I’m a liquid soap kind of person. But there’s something about these artfully designed bar soaps that spruce up a space. They also make an impressive gift in a pinch (just tie them with a ribbon). All you need are a few key ingredients. Choose your favorite colors (or ones that complement your wallpaper), […]

Rue How-To: DIY Lip Gloss

I’ve discovered the easiest way to make your own uber-moisturizing, inexpensive, and shiny-as-the-department-store-brand lip gloss. All you need? A few items from your makeup arsenal and a tiny bit of patience. Here are the details: Rummage through your makeup and pick out a pot from an old powder or lotion sample – one that you […]

Rue How-To: Sponge Paint Stationery

I’m proud to say that I’m a snail-mail girl. The odd handwritten note that arrives in my mailbox – from save-the-dates to “how’s that eyeliner working out for you?” from the nice girl at Bobbi Brown – incites excitement. I’m constantly on the lookout for fun stationery, thank-you notes, and the like, so when I […]

Rue How-To: Preserve That V-Day Bouquet

Ladies and gentlemen, tomorrow’s the day. If you’ve prepped your partner, flowers are in your future (hopefully delivered to your desk at work, in front of all your friends). The downside? In three to five days, those pretty petals will begin to wilt. In the spirit of being crafty – and a tiny bit sentimental […]

Rue How-To: DIY Cap-Toe Shoes

We all have a beloved pair of heels or flats that are a touch too worn to wear, yet we can’t seem to toss them in the giveaway bin. The fastest (and surprisingly simplest) way to take them from drab to nearly new (sans Sharpie®)? Add some paint, and what was once a scuffed winter […]

Rue How-To: A Simple Guide to Pinterest

By now, you’ve probably heard of Pinterest (and the many reasons we’re all obsessed with it) – but what exactly is it? We like to think of Pinterest as a virtual bulletin board for our favorite things, so there’s no more losing those melt-in-your-mouth recipes or that DIY mani we spotted while trolling the Internet on […]

Rue How-To: DIY Tableware for Football's Big Game

Born and raised in a staunch sports town (ever the underdogs), it’s difficult for me to admit that I’m not all that much of a fanatic. In fact, if professional sports were indefinitely disbanded, I may not even notice (sorry, Dad). On the other hand, if beer and taco dip were wiped from the earth, […]

Freeze Clean Your Jeans

In an effort to prolong the life of my favorite pair of dark-wash J Brand skinnies, I had to start thinking outside the box – or, in this case, the washing machine. Cue freeze cleaning. When I first heard about the freeze-cleaning method, I’ll admit it took a while for me to warm up to […]

No (Home) Designer? No Problem

Maybe I’ve been watching too much HGTV, but lately I’ve been daydreaming of a home makeover. While a full renovation may not be in my (er, my landlord’s) budget, I will not be deterred. Instead, I’m starting small, with my home’s problem rooms. You know the kind: those spaces that are just too weirdly shaped, […]

Mani Monday: Half-Moon Nails

From Rihanna and Dita Von Teese to the models at New York Fashion Week, the half-moon manicure is a favorite amongst the stars. And with endless (and eye-catching) color combos, it’s easy to see why.

Rue Road Test: Twinkle Light Garland

With just under a week until Christmas, I’m still fighting the urge to go ballistic with a surge protector and a few dozen more strands of twinkle lights. This season, however, I’m trying my hardest to prescribe to a “less is more” approach when it comes to decking my halls (please note: this does NOT […]

Rue Road Test: Personalized Photo Coasters

If you’re getting a present from me, you better believe it’s homemade. Don’t return the gift you got me quite yet, though – I’m not talking the ornaments-made-of-popsicle-sticks kind of homemade. This year, all the good girls and boys on my list will get DIY, personalized drink coasters, because ringing in the New Year shouldn’t […]

Rue Road Test: Holiday Crackers

  You know how, as a child, you never believed your parents when they told you that good things come in small packages? Well, here’s some evidence that could have been handy back when you were nine years old. Use these homemade holiday crackers to decorate each place setting at your next dinner party, and […]

Alexandra Ryan

Styling Director

Ten years ago, I launched a personal shopping business. It was my gateway to styling, from editorial shoots to film sets and, finally, e-commerce. I’m a tomboy at heart, so naturally I have a soft spot for the perfect grey fitted sweatshirt and a great pair of flats.

Amy Breckenridge

Style Blogger

By day, I’m an executive assistant at Rue. And by night, you’ll find me posting to my personal style blog, Cupcakes & Couture. I’m a lover of all things feminine and whimsical, I’m a collector of vintage designer handbags, and I’m constantly striving to achieve that effortless Parisian-chic look.

Beauty Director

As a born-and-bred New Yorker, I’ve been immersed in style my whole life. I learned the trade at Bloomingdale’s, then moved on to Saks Fifth Avenue, Burberry, and Ralph Lauren. Now, after more than 20 years in luxury retail, I head up Rue’s constantly growing beauty and shoe department.

Brianna Lapolla

Caroline Mauro

Senior Stylist

My first foray into styling was a stint in the wardrobe department on the show What Not to Wear. I often find inspiration in street style, with my personal look skewing on the sportswear and androgynous side. Head-to-toe black? I’m all about it. If you see me with a bright lip, be concerned.

Elizabeth Burns

Fashion Editor

My career started in personal shopping, where I worked with a global set of well-heeled clients to furnish their wardrobes and homes. That led me to the world of fashion editorial, first at Lucky and now at Rue. I’m a storyteller at heart, whether it’s curating an icon’s style or capturing trends. Outside the office, you’ll find me wandering the halls of the Met.

When it comes to my style aesthetic, I’m constantly inspired by things other than fashion (think old movies, the book I’m currently reading, and architecture). I dress for my mood, so it’s not unusual to see me in leather and Dr. Martens one day, and penny loafers and a cardigan the next.

For nearly a decade, I’ve worked in e-commerce telling style stories. The ones that stand out most? They go deeper than just trends. Think the history behind a Turkish rug or the craft that goes into a pair of Italian boots. That said – you won’t find me taking my own personal style too seriously. If it surprises and delights me, I’ll wear it.

John Camilleri

Creative Director

With more than 20 years in the fashion industry, I’ve worked on everything from mass-market brands to high-end advertising agencies. My kind of men’s style is all about refined simplicity – easy, accessible, and not overthought. Right now, I’m super excited about the all-American look and the iconic labels and personalities that bring it to life.

Kasey Rowe

Fashion Editor

I’ve spent the past few years translating street style, high fashion, and pop culture into shoppable experiences on Rue. At my core, I am a visual storyteller with a knack for finding low-ticket items that look expensive. In my free time, I obsess over all things home. My dream Saturday? Antiquing in the morning and trying a new recipe at night.

I’ve been a fashion editor for fifteen years, freelancing for publications including WWD, Teen Vogue, W, Marie Claire, Glamour, and Lucky. My love for the business extends into styling, too. I especially love vintage shopping and going to flea markets. Fun fact: I once ran a vintage booth on the weekends just for fun.
