Top of Mind: Lisa Salzer of Lulu Frost on Keeping Her Cool and Branching Out

Top of Mind 07/14/2017

Welcome to Top of Mind, featuring a designer who’s been a part of the Of a Kind fam since wayyyyyy back (like, before Snapchat). This round, Lisa Salzer, the crazy-chic boss lady who’s been dreaming up vintage-modern statement necklaces, earrings, and cuffs since 2004, on.



HER TOOLS OF THE TRADE:

“I love my trusty Adobe Photoshop for designing—I'm most comfortable in that program and feel like a boss when I'm working in it. I also love a good old-fashioned mechanical pencil and sketch pad for jotting down my ideas.”

HOW SHE POWERS THROUGH THOSE ROUGH PATCHES:

“The hardest part is the pressure to always sell more. When I get frustrated with the process, I take a deep breath and realize that setbacks are just a natural part of the process of creation. That's how we learn and improve. Plus I meditate twice a day, so that helps keep things a bit more calm.”

THE CLASSIC BOOK THAT’S REALLY SPEAKING TO HER RIGHT NOW:

I'm really feeling The Celestine Prophecy by James Redfield. It’s kind of old-school but has a lot of messages that we really need to hear today, especially in our insane culture. There's a bigger picture out there, and we just need to start paying attention. Life isn't all about consumption.”

WHAT’S ENTERTAINING HER EYES AND EARS:

Sausage Party, the Seth Rogan movie, is pretty genius. I also have been listening to lots of Grace Jones, as per usual. She's the coolest.”

WHERE SHE GOES TO GET OUTTA DODGE:

“I'd be thrilled if everyone made it at some point to Dia Beacon—it's the best museum in the most stunning setting.”

HER NEW SIDE HUSTLE:

I'm currently obsessed with the power and beauty of flowers. I am fascinated by the hidden meaning behind each bloom—and this summer I’ll be launching a floral business at the new Lulu Frost store on Prince Street.”

NYC’S GREATEST EATS (PAST AND PRESENT):

“My favorite restaurant was Angelica Kitchen, but, tragically, they closed recently. In terms of what's open, I love Basta Pasta and order their incredible spaghetti parmesan, served right out of a huge cheese wheel.”
