Hi, Lizzi! Please introduce your wonderful self!
Hi y’all! My name is Lizzi Lithiluxa and I’m originally from Columbus, OH but I am now located in sunny Los Angeles where I work in Product Development for a denim company.
1. What does personal style mean to you?
Personal style is such a funny concept to me. Personal style to me is more of an attitude than anything else. I feel like my style ranges from “Big Parisian Energy” to “Tiny Hat Skate Life” It’s all about the attitude - if you feel and act confident, people will see that. With the right attitude, you can wear anything.
2. Is there anything in your wardrobe that has special memories?
For my wedding I got this beautiful Reformation slip dress that I found on Poshmark. It’s so simple and classic, I’m planning on getting it hemmed to a midi length so I can wear it more often!
3. How did you discover your style?
I think I really discovered my style when I started thrifting. I love a day where I spend hours thrifting, picking items - then finding a place for them in my wardrobe. I love getting creative with my style, changing it up daily, and my favorite catch phrase is “Thanks, it’s thrifted!”
4. What’s one tip you could share for finding your personal style?
I feel like I’m constantly rediscovering my style through thrifting, through music, and through other badass babes on the Internet. To anyone in a style rut or looking to discover their style, don’t be afraid to try new styles, new fits, new prints. I know there are these “style rules” that some body types can wear this or that, just wear what you want. You never know what is going work for you, and you never know what you could end up liking!
5. Is there anything on your thrift list right now?
I’m currently looking for a plaid car coat. I feel like it’s a classic piece that I’ve been needing for a while. I’m holding out for the ~ one ~ because I know it’s something that I’ll be keeping in my closet for a while.
6. And the bonus question I like to ask everyone before they go: What’s something you’re really proud of right now?
I’m really proud of myself for moving out of my home town and the big city that is Los Angeles. I’ve actually never lived outside of Ohio and I’d only ever visited California one time. But I had a great support system, and I was ready to take the big leap. It’s been almost 2 years, and when I take a step back, I know that a 15 year old me could never believe the silly life I’ve made for myself.
