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