See What's On This Style Pro and NYC Insider's List of Online Finds & Local Faves

Elaine Says: When you have a friend who's job it is to curate the very best of one of the most exciting cities in the world, it just makes good sense to inquire. Samantha Yanks is just that person. Her exceptionally exciting, dream career includes executive-in-cheif-ing both Hamptons and Gotham magazines, which comes with daily, insider status in both glamorous locales. [She sourced The Hamptons for us in her summer list...Read it HERE. Lucky for us, her busy lifestyle requires that she be able to source the very best, quickly, which stands to reason that she'd have a well edited arsenal of resources, both online and local, ready to share. But even more, Samantha personifies the attitude that fuels my own discovery "jones"...she enjoys sharing the wealth. Her upbeat and generous spirit makes cool-hunting with her really fun and also fruitful. She's the "best friend" with all the secrets and since I don't get to New York nearly enough, they are secrets I also particularly covet. Check out her Mags to stay on top of her professional eye but bookmark this list of personal finds if you want to discover her favorite online finds or walk NYC in her [well chosen] shoes.
