Graduating from London College of Fashion with a degree in Fashion Journalism, Lizzie is both educated and experienced in the fashion industry.
She began her career interning at the UK’s leading fashion magazines, some of which include British Vogue, Marie Claire and The Sunday Times Style. Indicative of her real passion for all things fashion and beauty, she interned across a broad spectrum of departments, including fashion, features, fashion features and beauty prior to securing the position of fashion assistant at the luxury men’s fashion and lifestyle magazine Gentleman’s Journal.
At Gentleman’s Journal she worked directly with the fashion editor on the styling of scores of fashion shoots. From celebrity cover shoots with stars that include Tinie Tempah, Bill Nighy, Daniel Brühl and Ralph Fiennes to working with male and female models from the UK’s top modelling agencies in destinations as far flung as Morocco.
In addition to her styling experience, her written work has also been published both in print and online.
Lizzie is now based in Norwich where she pursues her own projects. She lives with the two loves of her life: her amazing boyfriend James and their adorable little pup Pugsley (top marks if you can guess P’s breed!)
What to expect from thelizzielloyd.com
Lizzie’s style is an eclectic mix of high-street and luxury fashion with a healthy dose of vintage, sportswear and menswear thrown in too. Whether she’s dressed up or down, she loves to keep it interesting: she likes to stand out from the crowd, she’s all about trying new things and she lives for colour, prints and textures. She’s always having fun with her look, switching it up to suit her mood and wearing whatever she’s currently drawn to.
Her blog covers so much more than fashion alone and reflects many of her passions. Lizzie is also a skincare and makeup junkie who has a real weakness for high-end and luxury products. She loves to travel and explore the world and, alongside her boyfriend, loves making their beautiful house a home. Furthermore, she’s a closet techie with a love for gadgets and an avid reader with exceptional music taste, killer dance moves and a low-key stationary fetish. She’s a firm believer in having fun and living life to the full.
TheLizzieLloyd.com strikes a healthy balance between the aspirational and the attainable as Lizzie seeks to both inspire and add value to her readers. Her fashion education combined with her industry experience and great taste (no bias here lol) gives her a unique edge which is reflected in the content she creates. She’s a real perfectionist who strives to ensure that everything she produces is written, researched and fact-checked to a level that’s expected in magazines.
Content-wise, expect a mix of personal style posts (OOTD’s) alongside helpful styling advice and how-tos. Lizzie also uses her knowledge base to create detailed and informative longer-read but still digestible fashion and beauty pieces in her The Ultimate Guide To series. This series covers everything from catwalk trends to decoding some of beauty’s most confusing topics.
She uses her keen eye to curate the coolest buys from across the web for her readers, whatever their budget, and always seeks to provide affordable alternatives where possible. Her weekly The High-Street Edit is a prime example of this, wherein she provides a super affordable roundup of the hottest trends. Each week she also shares her personal wishlists in her Wishlist Wednesday series.
