From LA Intern to Superstar Fashion Blogger

This Vanderbilt junior is already a blogging brand to be reckoned with

Vanderbilt junior Larissa May is a star. Her fashion blog Livin Like Larz has led to all sorts of opportunities, from branded content posts to fashion shoots in New York to an imminent new company Recsy (for which she is the CMO).

May recently spoke with Mackenzie Smith, a lifestyles reporter for the school’s student newspaper The Vanderbilt Hustler. May recalled how it all got rolling:

“When I was 18, I took an internship in LA. I packed up my bags and … told my parents that my internship was five days a week, but I lied — it was two. I wound up hustling around and meeting people, and ended up working with Sincerely Jules. It turned out that she was the biggest fashion blogger in the world.”

“When I was in LA I just ended up doing crazy things — I randomly found myself at the red carpet working as the talent escort at the [Daytime] Emmys. My job was to bring them their trophies, and I would bring them to the press room. There were a ton of celebrities that I met there — people like Ellen DeGeneres, Dr. Oz and Bethenny Frankel. Ultimately, it was there that I kept meeting like-minded people.

May ranks hosting her own Teen Vogue parties as a so-far career highlight. Read the rest of the Q&A here.
