CJLA Girls Stories: Marissa Lively
- by Lauren Burchill
CJLA: Tell us about yourself!
MARISSA: Hi CJLA community! So excited to be able to share a little bit about myself and why I love CJLA so much! My name is Marissa, I'm 23 and live just outside of Seattle, WA. I'm married to my high school sweetheart/best friend and we are coming up on our 2nd anniversary! I currently nanny for 3 little girls and it is so fun.
CJLA: How did you find CJLA?
MARISSA: I heard about CJLA through a mutual friend who won a giveaway. From there I found myself deep in the Insta story highlights watching all of them and learning all about capsule wardrobes!
CJLA: Carly Jean Los Angeles is more than clothes, it's a community! Why do you love being a member of the CJLA community?
MARISSA: It didn't take me long to fall in love with the clothes and community here at CJLA. I actually started my little makeup business @theredefinedbeauty because I was going through CJLA tagged photos trying to find ways to style my Sailor Kimono and I stumbled upon a friend and it led me to starting my own Instagram business! CJLA is such an encouraging community that brings joy and friendship and confidence to so many women. I absolutely love EVERYTHING they do.
CJLA: What are your three all-time favorite CJLA capsule pieces?
MARISSA: If I had to pick my top three favorite CJLA pieces it would have to be the Evelyn, the Sloan Dress and the Carter Jeans!
CJLA: Why does the capsule concept work for you and your lifestyle?
MARISSA: The capsule wardrobe concept has been a game changer for me because I need clothes that are cute and comfy, but that also work for playing and running around with three little girls! I love that it takes the guess work out of getting ready.
CJLA: How has having a capsule wardrobe helped to simplify your life?
MARISSA: I know that I can go into my closet and mix + match my pieces, know that they can last for years and look so cute! That's been so helpful for me!
CJLA: What is your favorite CJLA piece to style?
MARISSA: You can always see me styling the Evelyn with leggings for a casual look, with a fun pair of denim or over my favorite dress!
CJLA: If you had to describe CJLA to a friend using only three words what would they be?
MARISSA: To me, CJLA is inspiring, encouraging and timeless!
