Jeannie Ly

Founder

Jeannie Ly, who often goes by 'Jeans', is an American stylist, creative director, entrepreneur and former fashion designer, based in Houston, TX (where Beyonce is from). Ever since her move to New York City, living in Brooklyn with her son as a single woman, she launched her Beauty & Style blog. This has opened doors to working with many known brands such as Gucci, MissPap, Ego UK, Daniel Wellington, Missguided, and Coach, to name a few, while completing her Bachelor of Science in Fashion Merchandising at The University of Houston.

Completely self-taught and out of curiosity, she enjoys photography and drawing leading her to fashion design in 2011, earning her 'Houston's Top 10 Designers' awarded by The Little Black Dress Association.

With over 8 years of experience in the eyewear industry, Jeans recently launched her own Sun-wear Collection in 2017, You and Eye, for the everyday, powerful and independent woman who gives no F's.

Today, Jeans continues to curate her blog through series of stories while implementing art, sarcasm and humor.

Please note: Don't mistaken her name as Jenny or you owe her $20.
