I spotted this young, emerging blogger in Olsenboye's recent campaign and immediately fell in love with her free-spirited personality. With an ever growing resume of fashion internships and brand collaborations, Olivia Lopez makes it hard not to envy her blog Lust for Life. Residing in SoCal, this Fashionista's blog chronicles life as a teenager and her daily fashion choices and inspiration. While being in high school is definitely a full-time job, Olivia has proven that there is always time for fashion and, of course, her blog. Enjoy our Q&A and be sure to check out her blog “Lust for Life”.

CollegeFashionista: How did you break into the blogging community? When did your blog launch?

Olivia Lopez: I launched my blog in October 2006 as a freshman in high school. It initially didn’t start as a fashion blog, but an online journal of my weekend outings and recaps of the concerts, shows, and a series of random events I would venture out to with my friends, but as time grew on more and more people requested to share my outfit posts J

OL: I’m also a full time student (finishing my last year in high school, phew!) and interned as an assistant buyer and have been trained as a buyer for a Buy/Sell/Trade. Once in awhile I style shoots as well as model for friends’ of friends’ companies, and every summer I always enroll myself in an internship.
