GIRL GUIDE: Joellen Lu

Clad in a pink fur coat and bobby socks, Joellen Lu isn’t your typical entrepreneur. As the business-savvy, go-getter behind Cali boutique Can U Not, Joellen knows a thing or two about balancing a hectic schedule.

Striking the perfect balance of vintage and modern, Can U Not has quickly become a must-visit haven for Santa Ana babes with a penchant for quirky sartorial gems.

Joellen continues to change the boutique game by creating her own rules; rules that follow the cruelty-free, independent women mindset of her brand. A quick browse through the blogosphere and you’re sure to spot the unique markings of this California girl.
