Oh Hi There!
I’m Elise, And All That…

I’m Elise Loehnen, the editor-in-chief of Beso.com—and a relatively recent Los Angeles transplant.

Elise Loehnen, Editor-in-Chief, BesoSo here’s my deal: I’m originally from Missoula, Montana, where I grew up with chickens, cats, dogs, horses, and my own “mountain.” These days, though, I seem to spend most of my time hunting around for things that are beautiful and useful, whether it’s at my favorite flea market in Connecticut (Elephant Trunk), my favorite dress-laden boutique in NYC’s West Village (Albertine), or at any number of awesome websites that I troll at all hours (more on all of these spots later). For the past decade or so, I’ve been an editor at Conde Nast in New York, primarily at Lucky Magazine, where as the Editor at Large (and ultimately Deputy Editor) I got to write guides about shopping the cities of the world, and a column about all the random (but I would maintain, covetable) things I found to buy online. Hand-beaded Navajo barrettes? Leather “Possibles” bags turned out by war re-enactors that are actually undeniably chic? Any takers?

I grew up in an editorial tradition where my job and sole duty was to canvas these cities that I wrote about as comprehensively as possible, so that readers would be armed with all of the info they could possibly need to make informed decisions about where they chose to spend their time shopping. If I missed a boutique worth writing about, that was a fail. How could anyone trust me? To that end, what was an otherwise pretty glamorous gig often turned into a deathmarch. When I wrote a guide on Paris, for example, I walked every conceivable, boutique-dotted street. And since I’m dorky enough to carry a Fitbit, I can tell you that that netted out to about 14 miles of walking per day. Easy justification for what became a two-croissant-a-day habit. When it comes to canvassing the web, what I can’t track in miles, I can track in hours: This office supply round-up that I did for Beso? It took me about 18 hours of clicking around, at a minimum. I know…martyr. :)

But the point of this ramble? You can trust that all of us here at Beso—Diana, Kate, our deep bench of contributing editors (many of whom worked alongside me at Lucky over the years)—will be spending our days tirelessly looking for the best stuff online so that you simply don’t have to. Best stuff sounds pretty vague, right? Well, we’ll be looking for the best stuff that we like, but we need to hear what you like, too: So talk to us, because we’re here to serve you. You can email all three of us at: help@beso.com, you can tweet us @beso, or me directly at @eloehnen, or you can talk to us on Facebook by liking Beso and writing on our wall, and you can register for the site and start “favoriting” the finds you love, so we can add them to our stream.

Happy shopping!

  1. Czym tak naprawdę istnieje cholesterol?

    Cholesterol istnieje tak naprawdę niebezużytecznym pierwiastekiem celi polskiego systemu.

    Jest niezastąpionym budulcem cel oraz hormonów.

    Cholesterol częściowo wstaje w naszym tworze — w wątrobie,
    oraz częściowo wywodzi z pokarmu, jaki na co dzień konsumujemy.
    Z przyród onego istnieje tedy niczym libertyńskim.

    To co istnieje psotne, to jego nadmiar. A œciœlej rzeczeniom ujmując zbytek
    “rozwiązłego cholesterolu” typu LDL. Przyjmuje się, że jego stężenie we posoki
    niemu winno przewyższać 100 mg/dl. Z pozostałej stronic macie “filantropijny cholesterol” typu HDL, jakiego stężenie oną powinni przekraczać 50 mg/dl u białogłowy
    i 40 mg/dl u mężczyzn. Całkowite stężenie cholesterolu w naszej posoki powinniœmy mieścić się w przedziale 114-200 mg/dl.

    Jednak jeżeli te norm pozostają przeroœnięte a ten poziom trzyma się poprzez dłuższy czas, owe
    zdołasz spodziewać się pilnych pasztetów.

    Dlatego nie zezwalaj do takiego stanu — dotrzymuj cholesterol
    na właściwym poziomie.

  2. Thanks for your marvelous posting! I definitely enjoyed reading it, you’re a great author.I will make certain to bookmark your blog and definitely will come back someday. I want to encourage yourself to continue your great posts, have a nice weekend!

  3. I couldn’t refrain frօm commenting. Exceptionally
    աell written!

  4. Greetings. I am wondering if you would be interested in doing a link swap? I see your website: and my blog are centered around the same subject. I’d really like to switch links or possibly guest author a article for you. Here is my personal contact: my mail. I highly recommend you contact me if you’re even remotely interested. Thank you so much.

  5. Greetings! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could get a captcha plugin for my comment form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having problems finding one? Thanks a lot!

  6. Hey. I noticed your blog title, “” doesn’t really reflect the content of your internet site. When composing your site title, do you think it’s most beneficial to write it for Search engine marketing or for your readers? This is something I’ve been struggling with simply because I want great rankings but at the same time I want the best quality for my visitors.

  7. With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement? My blog has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my agreement. Do you know any ways to help prevent content from being ripped off? I’d really appreciate it.

    Hey! I know this is sort of off-topic however I needed to ask. Does operating a well-established website like yours take a large amount of work? I’m completely new to writing a blog however I do write in my journal on a daily basis. I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share my own experience and views online. Please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers. Thankyou!

  9. Les trois collections seront bien sur disponibles dans les boutiques Kenzo ainsi que sur son e shop. Puis certains magasins auront le privilège de proposer cette collection capsule, comme Colette, Harvey Nichols, Bosco Milan et Lane Crawford.Kim Kardashian et Kanye West
