Meet Larz, a 19 year-old entrepreneur, philanthropist, and jetsetter who was born and raised in Chicago. Larz paved her way into the world of fashion and art when she founded “Chicago Flea MKT”, an art market in Wicker Park. Currently she works at a fashion start-up for college girls, http://www.dressometry.com/. Aside from all of Larz’s fashion work, she is dedicated to helping others throughout the community. Now Larz is enjoying her fall semester abroad in the fashion capital of the world, Paris.
1. How was LARZapalooza?
AMAZING. Now that I’m 20, and I’ve traveled around the US rocking flowers on my head, I felt it was time to make the FLOWER POWER tour official, and make a difference while doing it.
My mission for LIVINLIKELARZ is : I want to do two things in my life: Be Inspired by Inspiring people. Inspire People to be inspired. At LARZAPALOOZA I was to inspire young girls through music, fashion, and flower crowns to raise money for MAKE A WISH ILLINOIS. I loved coming back to Chicago, after LA, NYC, and Nashville to collab’ with Frankies on the Park for a greater cause. I truly believe you’re never too young to make a difference or a wish.
2. What’s your favorite feature of Resultly?
I LOVE that you can follow influencers based on category: Athletes, Tech Trends, etc. This segmented approach allows individuals to identify who their TRUE influencers are. Often times websites, pop culture, and magazines assume that a major ROCKSTAR is an influencer, therefore, EVERYONE should follow them. In reality, its about finding people who inspire you, through the things you are inspired by.
If you love TECH> get inspired by TECH TRENDS. If you are an ATHLETE> KICK it like a PRO. That’s what I call RESULTS. I mean who wants to practice a game they don’t wanna play?
3. What’s your favorite upcoming fall collection, designer, brand, or suggestions for your following?
My favorite shoes are DEFINITELY BUCKETFEET. I’m all about the kicks… For several reasons. Bucketfeet is one of my faves because it is a CHICAGO GROWN company , similar to Result.ly. Bucketfeet supports artists around the world and turns their fab designs into shoes. I’m always obsessed with the NASTY GAL #SHOECULT.
Partly because Sophia Amoruso is such a #GIRLBOSS ( a must read if you haven’t). The Marc by Marc Jacobs backpack collection is ON POINT. No … but actually… I’m so stoked to carry them around Europe this fall :).
4. Who inspires you in fashion, in your writing and that you’d love to see as our next Influencer?
Isabella Rose Taylor is going to be HUGE. She is one of my biggest inspirations… AKA she is 13 years old and has her own fashion line. She just got picked up by Nordstrom this FALL and she will be shown’ at NYFW. Watch out for this COOL CAT!
5. Can we have a sneak peak into your next Collection, see any trends for Winter?
Patterned dresses and leather belts are KEY to winter fashion. Don’t be afraid to rock your favorite floral, aztec , or wild print. Prints are daring… don’t get me wrong… but if you pair it with a LEATHER BELT you’re gucci :). You never want to hide in your clothes .

Knit Sweaters and Wear
With the falling temperatures you can stay warm and trendy with sweater dressing. Some of the hot runway knitwear included Michael Kors fisherman cardigans and cozy knitted-scarves, Céline’s ribbed sweaters, and Lanvin’s ribbed sweater-dresses. You can find and buy similar items for the Fall 2014 Collection by clicking here: http://www.result.ly/resultly
This season designers chose to use shearling and a hint of fur to cozy up to. There’s a wide range of trendy styles, ranging from Miuccia Prada’s color-blocked coats and Burberry’s Prorsum oversized shearling coats and ponchos.
Normcore is all about making a statement while blending in. Designers, such as Hugo Boss, Max Mara, Hermès, and Jason Wu embraced this new trend on the runway.
Don’t let the end of summer bring an end to vibrant colors in your wardrobe! Designers chose to enter the fall with bright colors and warm hues. Some examples include Joseph Altuzarra’s pink and gray wrap-coat, and Emanuel Ungaro’s striped green, black, and blue knitted-dress.
Like all fanboys that watch Syfy films, I want to own the same ridiculous bits of technology that the film claims the future will have. Personally, I’m still waiting for the flying cars that the film, “The Fifth Element” promised us. Even without robots, flying cars, or clones, technology is still advancing very rapidly. So, what does the future hold for us in the upcoming years? Here are some mildly outrageous requests and slightly realistic predictions us fanboys have for the future.
Self-Building Robots: We basically already have robots operating in our society now. Giant computers, those robot puppies you buys for kids, and the self-checkout stations at Wal-Mart (which I don’t trust). I think it’s reasonable to presume that robots that build themselves without the need of humans to create them isn’t a far cry from reality.
Deeper Space Exploration: Come on, we’ve been to the moon and sent out space probes into the galaxy. So I think sending spaceships to Mars and beyond isn’t an unrealistic expectation of NASA. I mean, it’s no more unrealistic than Lindsay Lohan getting clean.
Multi-Pill: Who wouldn’t want a pill that basically combined all your medications or supplements? I mean, you couldn’t combine meds that counteracted each other but still, it’s a unique prospect for seniors who have to take three or more a day.
Automated Exams - This basically examines your body for diseases or things you’re at risk for. This I feel is important because it gives our doctors assistance. Doctors and surgeons are always in short supply so why not help them with, dare i say, the use of robots????!
Government Chips Installed inside your body - Please, they’re basically already doing this by tracking where you go on the internet and listening to phone calls.
There you have it, slightly realistic possibilities and these only scratch the surface of what could happen in the future. In the meantime, I’m gonna record a video and send it to my friend and then facetime him. I mean, that’s pretty nifty too, right?
