Last month I launched a new column called “Witty Conversation With” (you can read the first post here) and this month I’m excited to be featuring Lexi Cross. I first met Lexi thanks to my good friend Taylor (they went to high school together!) She’s one of those girls you meet and instantly like. She oozes cool girl chic and she’s as savvy as she is kind.
So meet Lexi…
Tell me about yourself in 3 sentences.
If I could describe myself in 3 sentences I would say: I’m a NYC-transplant from Seattle living and working in Manhattan. During the day I’m the Marketing Director for Lulu Frost jewelry and on my nights and weekends I run an Instagram account called @shoesofnyc with a friend of mine. I love to write, read, spend time with friends and… I ask a LOT of questions about pretty much everything.
What does a typical day look like for you?
Wake up at 5:30, head to a Classpass gym session at 6am, head home, make some coffee, shower work, post-work street style photography for @shoesofnyc with my partner Huston and, after that, drinks and dinner with friends, an evening event or home to catch up on work, reading or SLEEP.
What’s the best part about working for Lulu Frost?
The creativity, the gorgeous, recently revamped studio space, the people I work with and all of the pretty things I’m surrounded by (couldn’t narrow it down!).
What are your top 3 favorite places to eat/drink in New York City? Why?
What’s your favorite way to let loose?
A walk through Madison Square Park on a sunny, warm evening orrrr a long shower.
What’s a piece of advice you’d give your younger self?
Stay weird! Weird is cool.
What are 3 of your favorite apps and why?
Instagram, Classpass and Snapchat (I’m really getting hooked!)
Who (or what) inspires you?
Truly authentic people inspire me. People who are no bullshit and stand their own.
What is a piece of advice you’d give to someone trying to break into the world of fashion?
Just do it.
Finish this sentence “I have a dream…”
…who doesn’t? 😉
(Thanks so much, Lexi!)
