Please introduce yourself and tell us more about what you do and your business?

I'm Jen Glantz, founder of Bridesmaid for Hire, author of 3 non-fiction books, including the one I'm writing right now, Finally The Bride, and the host of the podcast, You're Not Getting Any Younger.

 

What’s your Vue? Tell us about your personality and 3 things that really define who you are as a person.

I'm super determined, stubborn and passionate. I do what I want and I want what I do. I know that sounds intense but I really throw my entire self into things I care about or chase after. I can be unstoppable, which is both rewarding and also tricky. I also have always had a mismatched approach to style, life and goals.

 

 

Let’s dive into your look. How would you describe your overall style?

I like to express my bold, quirky and adventurous personality through my style. I always overdress with sequin and over excessive with mixed patterns. 

 

Expressing your authenticity is at the core of VUE by SEK, how do you think you express yourself best? 

I try to be vulnerable and emotional, relatable and honest in everything I do. I don't follow other people's rules or life stories. I always try to design my own ways based on my emotion, purpose and passions.

 

How do you like to waste your time?

Long walks with no direction, reading poetry, dancing to music in the living room and eating pizza. Oh! And laughing with my puppy named Goofy.
