Ruby McAuliffe is a New York-based associate commerce fashion editor from California. She was formerly a commerce reporter at the New York Post where she focused on buying guides, reviews, launches, and commerce video creation. Ruby’s further bylines have appeared in Page Six, Teen Vogue, Decider, and Dressember. Her prior positions include being a beauty and wellness writer for Her Campus, executive editor at L.A. Style Magazine, and managing editor at Suggest.

While Ruby’s career has lended her to the commerce space, her love for beauty, style, and general shopping extends far beyond. No matter what she’s on the hunt for, she does her research, searches for deals, checks celebrity-approval, and reports back to her friends and family with an honest product review. Therefore, shopping for a living is a dream come true.

Favorite Purchase

Ruby’s favorite item she’s purchased is the Tiffany & Co. Notes Alphabet Disc Charm Pendant. She’s a major Swiftie and first saw the necklace hanging from Taylor Swift’s neck. Ruby knew she had to have it, and claims it’s even better in person. The necklace features delicate script, sterling silver, and an elegant chain. Ruby says it’s the perfect personalized addition to any outfit.
