Fashion School

I fell further in love with all things fashion when I made the move to California in 2005. A degree in fashion quickly made it’s way to the top of my priority list, so off I went! I Graduated with a Fashion Business degree and the dream of working as a stylist on many different levels within the fashion industry.

Party of five

Soon after I started fashion school I got married and two months later found out we were expecting our first babe! (oops!) I worked hard to finish school before his arrival and thankfully, was a success! Over the next 8 years we welcomed two more kiddos into our family and became a family of five!

Michigan+California

My home state is Michigan where I originally launched LivStyled. Since then we have moved to my hubby’s home state of California where we have taken up residency in San Diego! I am eager to see my business expand on the West Coast as well as continue to grow in Michigan. To do this, I have added a second stylist (Kelsey, she’s the sweetest!)  who is located in Grand Rapids, Michigan and continues to work with my local Michiganders.

There is so much flexibility when it comes to personal shopping!

  • Limited budget? No problem! I will search far and wide at local boutiques, discount and outlet stores to find you the best options without breaking the bank.
  • Do we need to work on balancing your wardrobe by adding some higher quality basics and a few killer statement pieces? Mixing high-end pieces with affordable items is a look that is embraced by some of the most stylish women in the world! Savvy shopping is always a must, but saying no to the perfect item because of the price is simply not an option.
  • Lets be honest, who doesn’t jump at the chance to fill their wardrobe with the absolute best the fashion world has to offer?! You appreciate top quality, flawless design and wearing the world’s best fashion designer pieces – brilliant! We can hand pick the ones that were made for your body and style!  

Personal Styling

Whether you’re a professional needing to break out of a suit rut, a new mom with a changing body, a TV personality or a professional athlete, we all suffer from running out of options in our wardrobe. Sometimes all it takes is a fresh set of eyes to see the potential in your closet and keep you feeling good about your everyday look!

If you aren’t feeling the need to get rid of items in your closet and simply need some new ways to wear things you already own, I can help! This is when I come in and look through your wardrobe to create new outfits options for you! If you’re simply missing a few specific items then I’ll let know which ones to purchase to make things easier for you.

Event Styling

Between weddings, birthday bashes, graduation events, business outings, vacations and simply a night out on the town, it seems our wardrobe options get fewer and fewer! Lose the stress of wearing the same gussied-up-get-up to all of your events and plan ahead before the busy season strikes! Having a handful of ready-to-go special occasion outfits helps to keep the magic alive!

(Last minute shopping and styling is available for events. We all know how it feels when the panic sets in that you have nothing you feel like a celebrity in!)

Sometimes I've got something to say.

Getting older is the trippiest thing, I’m layering on thicker night creams and spf these days but I’m also becoming someone I’m more and more proud of. I care less about what other people think of me and more about what I think of myself. My sister @thecozinessconsultant and I often talk about ‘doing the work’ in this life which essentially means choosing to approach the hard things from childhood to adult by identifying behaviors, themes, dissecting relationships, walking through forgiveness, understanding your values, setting boundaries & always ALWAYS choosing to see when you’re wrong and how you can grow from each interaction in your life. It’s pretty wild how many heart things get exposed and how your perception changes about so many, many things when you’re willing to do the work! There’s a part of you that dreads getting older and then there’s this other part that feels more sure of who you are and more aware of the ripple you want to leave behind each season you walk through. Cheers to #33 and all of the things ahead of me! Ps. Since I’m new on LikeToKnow.it…
These tees are so worth the investment, they’re soft & timeless. There are so many great ways to style them! Im wearing a medium for a little extra room, they’re supposed to be a little baggy – just the way I love em!

I’ve had this sweater and pants for weeks and haven’t worn them yet because it’s been too hot in SD but I’m packing for Michigan weather baby!! I’ll be honest I’ve been riding the struggle bus lately, adjusting to a new city is hard. New friends, new job challenges, fretting over kids and how they’re adjusting… but today a friend sent me a little snippet that changed my perspective SO much. It was simple… Jesus wasn’t in a hurry, He didn’t feel rushed to be a success or need to be seen. He simple delighted in a slow, intentional life & waited on His fathers timing. Deeeeeep breath. Gods got it – every detail is thought through down to the minute, I just need to step into His peace & let Him do His job while I work on my heart & be present in my everyday. This season I’m choosing to press into the simpler things that I love, listening to my kids play imaginatively & meeting my husband for lunch. Using my quiet time to post up and work on my business, go for a solo trip to the beach or be there when a friend says she needs me. Being like Jesus doesn’t just mean reaching others, it means emulating His character & allowing God to be enough when things feel still..

What Others Say

Testimonials

Alyssa R.

“I never thought I would get my “what not to wear experience”. But Olivia provided all the positive encouragement and fashion secrets without the TV cameras in my face!! Loved this entire experience with Olivia. I’m received so many positive comments with my new looks. But ultimately, I owe it all to you!! Can’t wait till next time!!”

Jodie H.

“Liv’s services are one of the most worthwhile investments you can make in yourself! Bigger closets take longer, which was great for me, because Olivia was UBER great helping me weed through what was and wasn’t a foundational or multi-functional piece for my wardrobe.

She came back (I can’t believe I didn’t burn her out the first session!) to STYLE the pieces that I knew had great potential but sat unworn because I just didn’t know how to build on it.

She is intuitive, willing to challenge your “need to keep” but also understanding of certain things that are sentimental. She realizes the emotions involved with how our outside can reflect our inside feelings, and where that incites tension, she will “go there” with you if you are open to it. I invited her to tell me if something I was wearing wasn’t flattering on my body type…she did, and did it some magical way that made me excited to shop for a couple of things that WOULD FLATTER my type AND go with other things I already own!

I obviously believe in the benefits of the services Olivia has to offer, but even more, you are going to be treated so kindly, respected for the person you were created to be, and built up emotionally–in short, she will help you discover the beauty and worth that you were born with and the confidence to go make your unique mark on the world.”

Caroline A.

“Olivia has been absolutely amazing and has truly helped tame my wardrobe and curate a style for me that is always effortless but sprinkled with professionalism, preppiness and at times, a little bit of edge. My closet was completely overrun with an over abundance of clothes from pre-pregnancy, pregnancy and post-baby – it was all over the place. With Liv’s helped, she helped me purge and add key pieces to round everything out. I LOVE when she comes and styles new outfits for me – I’ve now got a collection of photos from which I can pull outfits or inspiration for any occasion. She’s also great developing specific looks for special occasions – she’s helped me & my husband prepare for galas and weddings – all with great stylistic success. I highly recommend Olivia and Liv Styled.”

Cheryl W.

“I asked Olivia to update my wardrobe with some basics as well as some statement pieces. She was professional, personable and knowledgeable. She was sensitive to my budget. The new pieces work well with things I already own. I highly recommend her services.”

Sarah I.

“I LOVE LIV STYLED! Olivia came to my house and took over my wardrobe to help me style outfits for my upcoming trip to Italy. I am SO excited to wear the ensembles she put together, and the best part was… All are made up of pieces I already owned! They have been in my closet the whole time and she gave them new life. Some combinations I would have never thought of trying… and now thanks to Liv – I am completely obsessed with them!

Not only did Liv use my own clothes to create lovely outfits that make me look AND FEEL great… she also gave me ideas for new pieces to add to my wardrobe! All based on my body type, shape and personality… plus she knows where to find good deals!

I am recommending Liv Styled to anyone and everyone! Whether you need help with your own pieces or want guidance and advice when shopping for new ones – Olivia Janae is your stylist! She does amazing work!!”

KIA D.

“So grateful for your services over the years! I am seriously considering flying out to MI so that you can style me in this new season of life! You have a penchant for creating THE LOOK for anyone who asks. Your skills are stupendous and more importantly your spirit/vibes fosters this trust that makes it ok for anyone to be vulnerable and comfortable in your presence. I mean it can be quite awkward trying to find the look after gaining LOTS of pounds or the look to help cover the loose skin from losing LOTS of weight. Thank you for being all that you are and for sharing your talents with so many. I’m still flabbergasted as to how you find the most unique pieces and prints to put together; or how you manage to highlight the best features of a person all the while making us feel good in what it is we’re wearing: a win-win.”
