This fall, the one thing I absolutely, positively cannot live without is...
"A new leather jacket from AllSaints — Iast year I wore my black hooded one to death. Their leather is so comfortable, it feels like a second skin."

My must-have cheap thrill...
"J Shoes boots. They look like a million bucks, but sell for under $200 and are super-durable. If you treat them before your first wear, you can even stomp crosstown in the snow."

The latest trick I've picked up from the other R29 editors is...
"ebay! I've known our EIC, Christene, has been on top of it forever, but I recently got hooked — both selling and buying."

Current food obsession...
"Vosges Haut-Chocolat in Soho serves Aztec Elixir Couture Cocoa in to-go cups — it's the perfect accompaniment (and fuel) for an epic browse session. Really spicy, with hints of chilli peppers, vanilla, cinnamon, and of course, crushed cacao beans...it's addictive as all get-out. Be afraid."

The one song I can listen to over and over...and over to is...
"'Man, this is so cheesy, but "We Found Love," by Rihanna feat. Calvin Harris has been wearing out my headphones for the past two weeks. Calvin's music is like workout crack, and this track guarantees me an extra three minutes on the treadmill."

Next up on my Netflix is...
"I want to see North by Northwest and Dial M For Murder. The fact that I haven't watched a lot of Alfred Hitchcock movies bums me out. On the TV front, my obsession with Revenge and Downton Abbey knows no bounds. I'm a bit scared to start Once Upon A Time — I hear it's crazy-good, and I'm a sucker for a good fantasy."
