Hi, I’m Alison Cool (yes, my real last name!) and I’m Fashionista's new editor-at-large. You can drop me a line at email@example.com In the days and weeks to come I’ll be writing about emerging and up-and-coming designers, posting pictures of great street style, contemplating accessories, checking out shops around town, and waxing deep about shoes. Around July I’m heading over to Stockholm, Berlin, and Paris to report on what those crazy kids are up to over there and what they’re wearing out on the town. (And stocking up on Cheap Monday jeans and Repetto shoes, of course.) Some of the things that I’m really into are street fashion, youth trends, vintage everything, weird handmade stuff, big floral prints, nerdy outfits, the color purple, and the cape that Mick Jagger wears in “Gimme Shelter.

On My Way
So yesterday was my last day at Fashionista. On Monday I start my new job as editor of Elle.com. Though I'm excited to take on this new challenge with a brand I've always loved, it's really hard and sad for me to leave this place. The majority of my three years here have been spent with Lauren Sherman. She hired me, left, and then came back as my editor at large. So it seemed fitting to reminisce about all the good times with her.
