"Behind the Curtain" Interview: Ladies of Rue

Instead of reading anything over here today, I encourage you to hop on over to A Lovely Being to read the "Behind the Curtain" interview Crystal and I gave about the up-and-coming Rue magazine.

Here is an excerpt:

Fallon: I think it’s so cool how you were tweeting and updating your facebook statuses during your New York photo shoots. It makes everyone feel like they are a part of Rue, as well.

Crystal: Yes, we really want everyone to feel like they are a part of the process. We want to feel accessible to them and we want to get feedback. And facebook and twitter allow for a fantastic online dialogue. We love that social media is a two-way street. We’ve been introduced to some really amazing vendors through our facebook and twitter page that otherwise we may have never known about.

Alaina: You know, people who may have never had the chance to get into a magazine can be in a magazine. Vendors will send us their link on facebook, we’ll check it out and if we love it, we’ll feature it. If their products are online, even better. I mean, when was the last time Vogue featured an Etsy seller? People on Etsy and other similar websites are crazy talented and they deserve a voice. That is what Rue has been able to offer. And bloggers, for that matter.


  1. So cool you were interviewed for Rue. Really exciting! Congrats!

  2. Very cool, and so true about how social media has revolutionized, well, just about everything.

  3. Great interview! And, I love that pic.

  4. Such a great interview, it has me in suspense for the first issue!

  5. LOVE this interview, thanks for including it!
