With that said, guess who scored an interview with Krysten Kauder of I-ELLA.com? What is I-ELLA? Well, if you aren't familiar with online shopping and don't know yet, it's the members only marketplace where you can edit your wardrobe, shop the closets of celebrity and fashion insiders while supporting social change. In fact, my closet will be available to shop soon...you heard it here first! Plus, I was recently just featured on I-Ella along with style insiders Whitney Port, Mary Alice Stephenson and Selita Ebanks to name a few!Well, I turned the tables and had the fabulous opportunity to ask Krysten about her personal style. To boot, with an internship at Marc Jacobs you better bet your lipstick she knows a thing or two about style. In fact, this is one of my personal favorite interviews that I have done thus far (shhh, don't tell). So take notes kids...

Krysten: I am the Assistant Manager, Marketing & Outreach at I-ELLA.com. I-ELLA is an invitation-only marketplace where you can buy, sell, swap designer clothes with celebrities, stylists, editors, bloggers and other fashionable people like you and me! Plus I am the creator of Beyond Lipstick &Lattes (a collection of women in the fashion world & of course an inclusion of their favorite lipsticks noted)...look for a feature on RSP creator Nacole Gray soon...
RSP: Which fashion designers or runway trends influence your overall look?
