Here are some of our favorite quotes from Liz.

On Her Personal Style. 

think my style is casual chic. I have a few similar pieces in my closet and I stick to the flattering styles. There’s nothing too avant-garde or out of box. Day to day I wear loose fitting pieces, for more formal outings I have a few structured pieces. I know my body so well and know what suits me and I stick to it. I’m not very experimental with new trends. I won’t wear something just because its trending right now. I wear clothes that flatter and complement me, only a few of us are truly blessed with the body of a goddess… lol.
