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.

Today is my last day at Fashionista. After 20 crazy, amazing, exhausting months, it's time to move on. (I'm joining Lucky as the executive digital editor.) I can't even begin to explain how important this job has been to me. Not only have I met many of fashion's smartest, most creative, and kindest, I've also learned a ton about the business, about journalism, about blogging, and about myself. Including:
