Elle Strauss has created the type of successful career that most wild-eyed, fashion-obsessed, glossy magazine reading teenagers could only dream of. Having worked over 15 years in the fashion industry with heavy experience in publishing and e-commerce, it’s hard to believe that there’s a single thing this freelance mama-of-two can’t do. As luck would have it, the English stylist, brand consultant, and editorial director (currently residing in Los Angeles by way of New York City), opened up her home to Mother for an interview. Below, the mama to Honor, 7, and Imogen, 2, gives us the inside scoop on all things luxury fashion, lifestyle, and motherhood.

Love this interview. What a beautiful family. I found Elle’s comment about having one child being “chic” very interesting. I’m currently the mother of a 5 year old, who’s an only child, and it’s wonderful. But, I’m also trying to decide if I want to try for another. I’m in my mid-30’s so time isn’t really on my side for long to decide. Seeing that Elle has two children with a 5 year age gap, I’m just curious what made her take the plunge and go from “chic” to a “wonderful game changer” by having two kids. My biggest deterrent about going for another is starting over after all this time and the age gap.

I love this article and the pictures. Her beauty arsenal is fabulous, and the white crochet dress is to die for. I’d have that covered in coffee stains and fingerprints in no time. :)
