Keiko started her blog as a personal diary of daily style, and general musings. It has since evolved into a fashion vault of style looks, hair tutorials and beauty tips. A self-taught fashion designer, Keiko started off her fashion line with a collection of reconstructed pieces made from discarded thrift store clothing. Hope you're not allergic to animals!

Tell us a little bit about yourself

I’m a 27 year old Floridian, now living in Brooklyn. I’ve been here for five years, so I have five more years before I can call myself a New Yorker. I have a handmade clothing line, Postlapsaria, and am currently working on a men’s and women’s accessories line. I also blog at keikolynn.com, my personal diary of daily style, beauty, and general musings.

 

How’d you develop your personal style? How has your style changed over the years?

My style is ever evolving; I like to change things up. I never thought of myself as being into fashion when I was young, but when I think back to my childhood, I was very particular about what I wore – and what I wore was very weird. I think that in itself is the quintessential fashion-girl: headstrong in her self expression, often a little offbeat. I was not very girly when I was younger, though – I downright refused to wear dresses or skirts. I even tried to wear jeans under my prom dress! Now, I’m more often in a dress than not. I like to mix my feminine pieces with something a little tougher or more structured, or top it off with something quirky like a headscarf and my ubiquitous cat-eye specs.

 

Latest inspiration?

My dear friend Shae Acopian Detar. Her photography and style is unrivaled, in my opinion!

 

Favorite stores/brands/companies?

Thrift stores and flea markets are always number one. I’m also a little addicted to online shops. I find myself browsing these on a regular basis: shopbop, asos, etsy, threadsence, modcloth, bona drag…among many others. I also love to pop into local shops like bird, wink, and cloak + dagger, and I’m a regular at Beacon’s Closet. For bags, I wear a lot of Rebecca Minkoff. Shoes, Seychelles. Clothing – too many to list.

 

Most challenging/rewarding experience in life so far?

I’m not sure if I could pinpoint one event. I had a pretty challenging childhood and I’m so grateful for that because it made me who I am today. I’m resilient and can take on any challenge presented to me because of it – and I’m incredibly grateful for everything good in my life!

 

What are your next steps?

My main focus right now is getting my clothing line back on track, and expanding to accessories. It’s a collaborative effort, and I’m hoping all of our hard work will pay off in the end!
