Zoe Ruffner

Writer at vogue.com and owner of two cats who look like elegant old ladies from the Upper East Side. That is Zoe Ruffner. With an instagram feed filled with colors and tiny purses and, well yeah, cats, she's one of my the New Yorkers I follow to still my urge to move back. Check her out!


What are three things you want people to know about you?
I’m a born and bred New Yorker (but happiest at the beach), a writer at Vogue, and a Leo.

If you could buy anything in the world right now, what would it be?
Anything from Phoebe Philo’s last collection for Céline. And plane tickets! Lamu, Rome, Vienna, Oaxaca, Lisbon, Thailand... I could go on and on.

What is success to you?
Being proud of what you’ve accomplished.

What do you prefer to read?
Joan Didion and Jeffrey Eugenides are my favorite authors, and I just bought a book of Mary Oliver’s poems, which I love, love, love. And I always have a New Yorker with me for the moments I find myself with nothing to do.

How would you spend a perfect Saturday evening?
Dinner with friends at my apartment in Brooklyn Heights: Pasta, wine, and my two crazy cats…
