Hi there, I’m Olivia! Welcome to The Livstyle, an outlet for me to express my personal style through fashion, beauty and other lifestyle tidbits.
I am originally from Houston, Texas and a proud University of Texas alumni (hook ‘em!). Throughout college, I held multiple internships/brand ambassador positions at various fashion brands. On a trip to New York Fashion Week in 2011, I was given the opportunity to go backstage at the BCBG fashion show. Ever since then, I knew it was my lifelong dream and aspiring career goal to one day end up in NYC, the fashion capital of the U.S. After college, I moved to Minneapolis (home of the Mall of America, may I add) in pursuit of my marketing career. In the summer of 2015, my dream turned to reality when I moved to NYC for a digital marketing opportunity in the fashion industry. I worked with bloggers on a daily basis from the brand side, and they really inspired and encouraged me to start my own. I am currently working in the beauty industry, and feel so lucky that I’m in sales/marketing for one of my favorite beauty brands! This city is nothing short of amazing; I feel blessed everyday to be surrounded by the most knowledgeable retail marketers and inspirational style icons.
I launched this blog because I am the biggest fashion enthusiast/shopaholic and so excited to share what I am passionate about! The Livstyle is meant to inspire other fashionistas and spark style ideas through vivid imagery and encouraging words. What I love about fashion the most is that it gives everyone the ability to truly express their personality and individuality. I would describe my clothing style as chic, feminine and on-trend with a bit of edge – budget friendly and affordable (who doesn’t love to find a good deal?), with the occasional luxury splurge! I admire any piece that catches my eye and is distinctive (accessories really are a girl’s best friend).
Thanks so much for stopping by! I welcome and appreciate all feedback – feel free to drop me a note on your thoughts anytime.
