It’s hard to believe Olivia Lopez is only in high school. The sometimes model, sometimes intern, and always blogger at Lust for Life (a collection of miscellaneous adventures in fashion and further) is the living, breathing version of Orange County cool. Beyond her student duties lies a female far beyond her years, who holds the power to inspire her readership to start working towards their dreams, and as a bonus, their next outfit. What’s not to love about that?
She’s perfected wearing peter pan-collared blouses with buckled-leather bondage boots all within the span of a day. With a style as versatile as her resume, and a closet filled to the brim with a mixture of off the runway looks to treasure chest pieces, Olivia’s fearless fashion forecasting and experimentation has earned her a spot as one of the most influential online sartorial muses.
Olivia is also the founder, buyer and stylist for The Caravan, an online shopping destination for the type of peerless vintage you could only dream of getting your hands on in Kensington. Featuring a ridiculous range of edited pieces, dressing like Olivia is as easy as shopping her closet, as her signature style can be found in the midst of The Caravan.
It’s no wonder Olivia’s got a lust for life, because she’s got a life we’re lusting for. Her unmatched travelling experiences across the globe aside, we’re impressed with the opportunities she’s crafted for herself, whether she’s got major fashion companies wanting to collab’ with her, major fashion events sending her exclusive invites, or being named one of Elle Magazine’s Top 30 Under 30. The only thought going through my mind as I’m hauled deeper and deeper into the personal reminisces of her mesmerizing life, begs the question, what the hell was I doing at 19?
Damn, the girl can dress. Olivia’s existence as a walking editorial makes it easy to understand why she’s been snatched up by the likes of Club Monaco and put to work as a stylist.
I end this post with a plea: Olivia, if you’re reading, can you make a pit stop to Toronto among your next travels and teach me your ways?
