Meet Jenny Wu, a stylish fashion lawyer and full time blogger at “Good, Bad, and Fab.” We’re quite obsessed with this style maven, and know you will be too!

How would you describe your personal style?

My personal style is very eclectic and reflects the diversity of LA’s neighborhoods and colorful subcultures. In just one outfit change, I can go from Venice boho to Beverly HIlls posh!

Who or where do you draw inspiration from?

I draw my inspiration from style blogs, magazines, pinterest, and the streets of LA.  I grew up in LA so  I can’t help but be influenced by its celebrity culture and count Kate Bosworth and Nicole Richie as two of my style favs.

What trends do you have to try before the summer season ends?

I’m bummed it’s August already and am in a mad rush to try out the “skort” trend and am working up the courage to rock a pair of statement making gladiators sandals.

Blogging isn’t your only experience in the world of fashion. What’s life like for a fashion lawyer?

Quite tame compared to fashion blogging! I draft contracts, negotiate licensing deals, and am involved in the enforcement of copyrights and trademarks. Basically, I take care of the behind the scenes work that keep the fashion wheels spinning.

Do you have any advice for students who want to pursue fashion law?

Get an internship at a law firm that represents fashion clients to get an idea of the industry and the work involved. Start networking early by attending industry mixers and events. Knowledge is power!

When you shop, how do you balance choosing clothes for work and leisure?

I don’t. I make sure everything I buy is versatile enough to wear to work and to play.

If you were to spill one beauty secret with us, what would it be?

M.A.C. Russian Red lipstick. It will change the way you see red lipstick and maybe even change your life.

Your blog name is “Good, Bad, and Fab” what are some good and/or bad experiences you have had with fashion over the years?

Since I’ve started my blog,  I’ve had so many good, great and fabulous experiences. Going to New York and Milan fashion week definitely are on the top of the list. Being the official Saks Fifth Avenue blogger is also up there. As for bad experiences, I think I tend to take on more than I can chew because I get so excited when new opportunities come up. So I end up trying to juggle a hundred projects at once which results in sleep deprivation. So yeah, unable to experience the joy of sleeping eights hours a night is a bad experience.

Finish the sentence. My fashion mantra is work, play, dress, and live fabulously!

How would you describe your style?

I don’t think I have a particular style; I like to dress depending on my mood. But I would say I gravitate towards colorful, feminine and fun pieces.

Where do you draw fashion inspiration from?

Pretty much everywhere, from the streets, movies, TV, magazines, designers, Internet, other fashion bloggers and even food!

Do you have any fashion rules that you live by?

Not really, I don’t like to follow rules ha,ha,ha.

What’s your go to piece to make a fashion statement?

Shoes, I live for my prosti shoes! The higher the heel the sexier I feel!

Do you have any beauty secrets you can share?

I never go to bed with makeup on, I wear SPF all the time and I drink a lot of water.

You spend a lot of time in New York City, what’s one thing we must do after getting off the plane?

Grab some pizza and go shopping 

When you’re not blogging we can find you on the small screen hosting segments for Univision and Telemundo. How did you get your start?
Not many people know this, but before I started my fashion/beauty blog I used to be a sports anchor, reporter, writer and radio host for multiple Spanish media outlets. I got a communications degree from USD and I’ve been doing TV for over 14 years! So, when I started blogging about fashion and beauty it was just a natural transition.

Your mantra is….

Live every day as if it were your last!

What made you pursue fashion?

I’ve always been addicted to shopping and clothes. I come from a family with primarily men, so I guess I turned out as girly as possible.

How would you describe your style?

My style is always evolving. I tend to dress for the occasion and what I’m feeling like for the day. Some days I’m super vintage and other days I can be a total hippie. I guess I would say my style is chameleon like.

Where do you find style inspiration from?

I definitely get my style inspiration from fellow bloggers and friends. I love to see real girls wearing pieces I would wear in their own unique ways.

What’s your go-to piece to make a fashion statement?

A  fabulous full vintage skirt. It’s become my signature piece and I get so excited when I find a new one while vintage shopping.

You’re a Los Angeles native. If we were to hang out, where would you take us?

I would probably take you all over, since L.A. is such a large city. Brunch in Los Feliz probably my favorite little restaurant Alcove, followed by shopping on Melrose, a short peak at the LACMA, and dinner and drinks in Downtown.

We noticed you’re into travelling, tell us about your love for Italy and Via Ghibellina 76?

I spent a semester abroad in Italy about 2 years ago and fell in love with traveling. Europe is definitely a different place. It was so eye opening to see the many lifestyles people lived. Via Ghibellina 76 was my apartment and it was my favorite place to people watch from my window and write.

Tell us, which season do you prefer for dressing up?

Fall is my favorite season. I live trench coats and boots. It’s nice cause you can later for warmth but also de-layer if it gets hot which it usually does in LA.

When it comes to working out, what’s your favorite method?

Bikram yoga is my go to workout method. It centers me body mind and soul. I love detoxing and flushing the bad substances out of my system. It’s more for health than just being fit and having a nice body.

What’s on your workout playlist?

Nothing. Bikram yoga requires you to clear your mind and so you have to be in silence for an hour and a half.

Since your name is Stiletto beats, we can’t help but to ask… What’s your favorite ShoeDazzle heel?

I have so many but the one I love right now is the Levi! Edgy, comfortable and so wearable.

Blake Von D caught our attention when she won a ShoeDazzle contest. Her unique take on fashion and beauty had us from the beginning. But, her love for law keeps us intrigued. Read on to get to know a girl with beauty and brains! 

Who is Blake Von D?

I’m really just a normal girl. Like a lot of girls, I enjoy pretty things and can’t get enough of dressing up. I’m also a big dreamer and all about girl power. I think there’s nothing that women can’t do and I try to embody that in everything I do.

If you had to tell your teenage-self one thing what would it be?

“TAKE THAT OFF!” Lol. I look back at all the terrible fashion choices I made as a teenager and I cringe. I can’t even justify it by conceding that I was fashionable for the time. Nope. It was just all around terrible decision making lol.

What type of law will you practice? What made you decide to go into law?

I’ve wanted to be a lawyer since I was a little girl. I’ve always had a penchant for “proving my point”. At the moment, I’m not quite sure what type of law I want to practice. I originally thought that I would definitely go into criminal defense. But lately I’ve been giving some thought to the fields of Fashion Law or IP Law, which deals with things like copyrights and trademarks. It’s a tough decision because I’m really passionate about social justice (I also have a Master’s of Social Work) and I feel like by not doing criminal defense, I’d be letting people down. But I just have to keep reminding myself that, “It’s ok to have more than one dream.”

To put it simply your hair is amazing! Do you have any hair journey stories that you can share with our readers?

Thank you! I cut my hair into this style shortly after graduating college in 2009 and I couldn’t have chosen a better style for myself. I think it really showcases my “what you see is what you get” personality and has forced me to truly appreciate my appearance on a deeper level, without relying on hair as a crutch. I’m loving everything about this journey!

Tell us your beauty secrets! What’s something you can’t live without?

I love a good foundation. My current go-to is MACs Liquid Studio Fix Foundation. I’m also a sucker for a good tube of mascara. My favorite is Maybelline’s Stiletto Mascara. And I always close out my day by cleansing my skin with Rx for Brown Skin’s acne treatment system.

We love your style, you were literally the girl crush of our office! Whose style do you often find yourself crushing on?

I’m totally blushing! You guys sure know how to make a girl feel special. I have quite a few style crushes. It’s hard to choose a favorite, but if I had to, it would be Rihanna (at the moment). She’s fearless and always willing to make bold style choices. You can’t help but love a girl with that sort of bravery. I also love Olivia Palermo’s style. That girl has impeccable taste!

If you could raid their closet what would you take?

O goodness, where to start?! I would DEFINITELY take the Stephane Rolland dress Rihanna wore to the 2009 Glamour Magazine Awards. It was showstopping! I’d also steal off with the black Armani gown she wore to the 2012 Grammys. As for Olivia Palermo, she always has great shoes. So I’d probably start by taking a pair…or six.

Do you have any statement pieces that you guiltlessly wear over and over again?

I have a great blazer that I recently purchased from H&M that I just can’t get enough of. It goes great with almost anything. It’s kind of sad how often I find myself wanting to wear it.

Finish the sentence. When I want to refresh my wardrobe I ____________.

I always start with my shoes!

The right shoe can change the whole feel of an outfit and luckily I have Shoedazzle to feed my addiction!

Head nod to your “Notoriously Chic” shirt, what’s one of your favorite lyric’s from the great B.I.G.?

I’m glad you like it! It’s a super cute tee designed by a close friend. I have to admit, I’m not the biggest B.I.G. fan (I’m more of a Tupac kinda girl), but if I had to choose my favorite lyric from the late rapper it would have to be the opening lyrics to “Big Poppa”, “To all the ladies in the place with style and grace…”. What fashionista can’t relate to those lyrics?!
