My name is Elizabeth Lutz, my friends call me “Liz.” The name of my blog is “Style Popped” and I am from Connecticut.
What inspired you to start your blog?
Other amazing bloggers! Seriously. For years I sat on the sidelines reading other young women’s fashion, lifestyle and fitness blogs and have always wanted to make the jump myself. Ever since I graduated college I wanted to blog, but didn’t have the confidence to do it. Finally, in my later twenties I have stopped caring what others might think or how I might “look” and just wanted to do something for myself. I have always had a passion for writing, style, and clothing and am so happy to now be able to integrate that more into my life without caring what others might think.
How did you come up with the name “Style Popped”?
It’s funny, above all else I have always been obsessed with pop culture and celebrity news! My dream one day was to become Giuliana Rancic and host the red carpets and interview all the hottest celebs! Since I’ve gotten older and STILL haven’t made the leap to LA, I know I probably never will. That being said, I think its amazing the opportunity that social media has for people like me that have that passion and are able to utilize it from home. I love fashion of course, so came up with Style Popped to combine style and pop culture together. I haven’t gotten the nerve to add the “popped” yet to my site (as in a pop culture section) because I’m not sure if there are people out there as crazy obsessed over entertainment news as I am! LOL. I would love to make that leap in the near future to truly live up to my blogs name.
Well I work during the week in publishing sales, so my life is always “on the go.” Typically you can find me working on local CT universities and campuses with professors, selling math and science textbooks and technologies. I love the fact that I get to work with people, but my passion has never been for math or science! Lol. Which is why it’s so great to now have a creative outlet through blogging. On the weekends you can find me searching for a fun and new coffee shop, shopping at Marshalls to find a great new deal, or surfing PerezHilton.com for all the hottest Celeb gossip. 😉 Oh, can’t forget working out. I try to work out 3-4 times a week.
3 things you can’t leave your home without?
My phone (sad, I know), my wallet, and chapstick!
Tell us more about your style! Where do you like to shop?
My style is pretty classic and conservative, mixed with some preppier pieces. I also love a good athleisure look since my #1 priority is comfort! My ultimate favorite store to shop at is the LOFT, it’s kind of a problem! I love that their pieces last year after year, and they have a petite section which is perfect for my 5’2 self. I also enjoy shopping at Nordstrom, Marshalls, TJ Maxx and Express.
What is your best organizational tip?
Create lists! If I have a lot going on my brain tends to get jumbled just thinking about all I need to do so writing everything down and checking things off is a great way to stay on track and keep my sanity!
