Hi, it’s Alexis! I work with Clare and I’ve hijacked her blog this week so that I could interview her to find out some of her favorite things from 2013…and what she’s looking forward to most in 2014. Read on to see what's on her mind. Q: What's your favorite memory of 2013? A: Opening the store in New York...it was a great day! Q: What was your favorite holiday present? A: A beautiful pair of Grace Lee earrings that she was kind enough to give to me. Q: What was your New Year’s resolution this year? A: I don’t make resolutions but I am trying to do a Pressed juice cleanse right now. Q: How did you ring in the New Year? A: With old friends in Joshua Tree. Q: What are you looking forward to most in 2014? A: There are some exciting new collaborations in the pipeline (like our Steven Alan collaboration sunglasses coming out this Spring!), a trip to Korea and some great events we’ll have in store like our Spring ’14 Poster Event.
