Diane Vadino

Diane Vadino worked in fashion magazines until she decided to strike out on her own. She created a shopping and style blog, bunnyshop.org, in 2005, then penned a book in 2008, Smart Girls Like Me ($12, St. Martin's Press, dianevadino@etsy.com), about a online fashion magazine assistant in '90s New York. Here, her must-visit haunts:

"I think Brooklyn's just about the most creative place on earth, and lots of my favorite designers are based here or elsewhere in New York City. I'm a huge fan of how lovely and delicate Lyell is."

"If I'm being irresponsible about money, I love A.P.C. in Soho—especially for the short tunic-like dresses and big cardigans."
file
"For jewelry, I love Tokyo designer Homako's stuff on Etsy and other indie designers like Melissa Joy Manning—I particularly love her bangles—and Jené DeSpain's sweet, simple creations."
file
"Alyson Fox is a total polymath: a fashion designer, visual artist, product designer, and more—I'm inspired by her ability to work in so many different media—and I love her brand-new bowls."

For art:

"20X200 is basically Gilt for lovers of inexpensive art."
