You can bet Ellen Moore knows a good thing when she sees one. By day she's a publicist at the fantastic NYC PR boutique Krupp Group (who happens to represent us!), a newbie thrifter, haute couture tomboy and food truck enthusiast. Needless to say, she's keen on what's-what in this city. Lucky for us, we get to work with her — and we can't help but think, with her eclectic taste for all things high and low and fearless fashion sensibility - she's got the LR spirit down to a T. Below, we caught up with Ellen in her nieghborhood where she sports her new pre-fall picks.

What do you like about your PreFall 2012 LR picks?
I'm a true tomboy at heart so you'll rarely find me in heels. For the Nadine flats, I love the idea of mixing heavy materials with a soft silhouette. It feels so modern and chic. The Lily wedges make me feel polished without trying too hard and I'll admit, I don't mind the extra inches they lent to my 5'5 frame!
Your summer style inspiration?
My closet is bursting at the seams with wide brimmed hats, soft, billowy maxi dresses and stacked heel booties.
What do you like best about what you do?
Being a publicist is enormously rewarding - there's no better feeling than paging through a magazine or scrolling through a blog and spotting something that you put your blood, sweat and tears into placing. Having a showroom as a walk-in closet isn't too bad either.
Whom would you most want to have lunch with?
Anyone willing to schlep all over Manhattan with me in search of a mind-blowing food truck. Preferably Elvis.
Best thing about your neighborhood?
La Cerveceria - their beer selection is like nothing else!
Tell us about any trips you have planned.
I'm headed to Paris at the end of June! I'll be spending most of the time in the countryside, taking cooking lessons on traditional French cuisine.
What is the coolest thing you learned to do recently?
I've recently become a Flea Market hound. Nothing is more exciting than finding incredible deals on one-of-a-kind pieces. Last weekend I purchased the coolest Cuban bistro table for $30 and these creepy vintage head globes that now live in my front hallway. Hell's Kitchen Flea Market is a true NYC gem.
Your guilty pleasure?
Fries dipped in mayo. Lots of it!
