Libra muse, Izzie Pretz, is a student who loves to socialize and collaborate, in true air sign form. The Scope chatted with Izzie about her celeb crush, post-college goals, and how much she adores holidays (especially those that involve presents).
What are your big 3 – Sun, Moon, and Rising signs?
I have a Libra Sun sign, Sagittarius Moon, and Aries Rising! It’s funny because many people have always guessed that I’m an Aries instead of a Libra, and I take it as a compliment because I love Aries girls. I also recently learned that I have all four elements in my astrological chart which I thought was pretty cool.
Where do you live/where are you from?
I live in Tempe, Arizona currently but I was born and raised in Tucson, Arizona.
What do you do for work? Does your sign play into your career at all?
I’m just “working” as a student right now, but I think my sign does play into this. As a Libra, I love collaborating and socializing and making connections. Since I’m a student right now, I’m taking full advantage of the social opportunities in college instead of focusing on finding a job.
How, if at all, does astrology impact your daily life? Do you read your horoscope?
Accessing my full astrology chart and reading about it has really helped me understand myself and figure out the best environments/people to surround myself with that will make me the happiest and most successful person I can be. Personally, I don’t find that my daily horoscopes are ever relevant, but I may just be using an inaccurate app.
What's your favorite holiday? (Yes, your birthday counts as a holiday.)
I love my birthday because I looovee presents and celebrating, but I also love Halloween, Christmas, and Valentine’s day... I can’t pick a favorite!
We all miss parties, gatherings, and events of all sorts. If you could plan your ultimate shindig what would it look like? Who would be there? What would go down?
I'd get a nice place on the beach with all of my friends and we would eat, go out, shop, swim – just spend time with my friends!
If you could give someone one DOOZ piece, who would it be and what would you give them? Would you pick their sign?
I would love to give my mom the Céleste Bag. We are both really into the trend of small shoulder purses and the Céleste Bag is just the cutest!
DOOZ partnered with Actually Curious to get to know Izzie a little bit deeper. The following are a few questions from their thoughtful, question-based card game:
What were the holidays like for you growing up?
My family doesn’t really follow traditions. Instead of doing the typical Christmas celebration, we like to go to Hawaii and spend our Christmas on the beach. My family loves doing this and it’s definitely a new tradition I will be carrying on.
What foods remind you of home?
Ever since I was little my parents have made the best rice and beans, and it’s still one of my favorites.
I wish I could share _____ with human kind.
Imagine yourself in the future. What will your greatest life accomplishment be?
Career-wise, I would love to start my own fashion company and be able to travel the world. But ultimately, my greatest accomplishment would be to be happy and surrounded by my friends and family.
To wrap up the Actually Curious portion of this interview, a featured Libra question: Who was your childhood crush, and where are they now?
I never really had a childhood crush in school or anything, but I was definitely obsessed with One Direction (specifically Harry Styles) and I still am.
Festive string lights or scented candles?
Definitely scented candles over everything.
Someone hands you the AUX at a party. What do you play?
There’s not one specific song that comes to mind because my favorite songs/artists are always changing, but I love Juice Wrld – it’s always a crowd pleaser.
What’s your one beauty secret?
Less is more. I think using makeup to accentuate your features versus covering them up is the key.
How would you style your DOOZ Bandana for a night out?
I would wear the bandana as a cute shirt with some light-wash jeans and kitten heels or boots, or wear it in my hair with a cool outfit.
If you were to select one color from the DOOZ celestial rainbow, what would your power color be and why?
Definitely Libra or Gemini! Pink and orange are currently my favorite colors. I just love how bright and fun they are!
What are your favorite DOOZ pieces and why?
Either the Libra Céleste Bag or the Libra/Gemini Duo Belt. I’m in love with the colors of both and an outfit isn’t complete without a little purse.
