Clare Vivier Opens Her Flagship Boutique in L.A.’s Silverlake Neighborhood

Clare Vivier bags It’s a story we’ve heard countless times: Person needs item; said person can’t find said item so they make it just how they want it.

Ahh aging.  Beauty challenges aside, there is one lovely benefit to seasoning with time: The ability to look back at events in one’s life and see how the germination of little passions and ideas took hold to become something much larger.
