We’ve regrouped after the scene that was New York Fashion Week in Lincoln Center, and we’re marinating in the trends for spring (which we’ll start playing with right now). Here, a recap of some of our favorite moments from fashion’s big week.

Since we first launched Behind the Keyhole, we’ve covered everything from local style to luxurious getaways. We’ve mixed in tips from leading industry experts and savvy guest bloggers, and answered questions from you, our well-informed Members. And we love reading every single comment you submit!

This marks our 100th blog post, and we hope we’ve inspired you as much as you’ve inspired us. It’s your Rue La La, and we want to know what’s on your mind. So tell us: What do you want to see on the blog? What have you liked? What do you want to read more about?

I can’t wait to hear what you have to say.

It’s high fashion, totally American, absolutely ageless, perennially in style. It’s the answer to so many fashion questions – how to look like you’re not trying too hard, what works for the summer-to-fall transition, the perfect date night uniform. It’s denim, and we love it. With the ELLE Editor’s Selections: Fall Denim Preview Boutique open now, our Style Editor shares some insider tips.

We know our Members lead busy lives. Between work, which often takes you far from a desk, and play, which we hope includes travel, brunch, and the occasional spa treatment or haircut – being in front of your computer at 11AM isn’t always realistic. So when you told us you needed a more convenient way to shop, we listened.

We took everything you love about Rue La La and translated it to fit your favorite mobile device – which means instant access to style must-haves, no matter where you are at 11AM.

We recently launched our new apps for the iPhone and iPad (have you tried them yet? If not, you can download from the app store). I’ve already heard from lots of Members who say they love the lush images, shopping by size, helpful reminders and more. And, with our mobile site – m.ruelala.com – Android and BlackBerry users can shop on the go, too. (Stay tuned for apps for these devices, coming soon!)

Now we want to know where you “Rue.” In traffic, on the golf course, maybe even under your desk at work – now that we’ve taken Rue La La mobile, tell us where you’re taking us!

Meet Maria Gangemi, Director of Brand Management of Accessories and Footwear at Rue La La. A seasoned buyer whose taste level is through the roof, Maria speaks softly and carries a big sense of style. She can spy multi-ply cashmere from 100 yards. She knows every trend before it’s even a trend. She can pack in five minutes to go anywhere in the world and find the hottest thing out there with two hands tied behind her back.

Rue La La: When you go to say, Milan, what are you looking for?
Gangemi: Usually in Milan we’re looking at handbags and shoes. You look for freshness. Who looks good. What’s new, something we don’t have. You look at creativity. Shapes. Ornamentation. Things that look handcrafted. Materials that are special and unique.

They say every dog has his day. But Rusty’s days might just inspire a little bit of doggie envy. Our favorite canine model, Rusty, an adorable brown boxer, has appeared in lookbooks like GANT and Horny Toad. Maybe you’ve seen him in our “Behind the Scenes” Facebook album. His owner, Lauren, a Rue La La stylist, can’t get over how much our Members love her pup, and sat down to give us a behind-the-scenes look at a day in the life of our four-legged friend when he comes to work at Rue La La.

“Rusty wakes up bright and early and breakfast is served! But on the days he goes to Rue La La he’s often way too excited to eat!”
