It seems like only yesterday I was writing a Blog to Watch post for this new blog called Keiko Lynn, flash forward one year and she has one of the most popular sites in the fashion blogging community. As I stated then it is still true today that her posts are honest and heartfelt. Keiko really lets you into her life showing the behind the scenes, her family, insecurities like we all have and poor kitty who had health problems. Her blog is also filled with amazing giveaways and updates to her Postlapsaria store. Her style is a mix of bright colors, lots of tights, heels and mega girly appeal consisting of many skirts and dresses usually vintage or self made. Enjoy Keiko Lynn’s answers to The Symmetry Seven below.
1. What would you name your personal style?
Always feminine, sometimes quirky.
2. Is there anything you wouldn’t wear?
Fur really grosses me out – I can’t even touch it. I also don’t wear flip flops, which is blasphemy in Florida (where I was born and raised).
3. Where do you get your outfit inspirations?
My inspiration isn’t really direct; it’s more of an overall attitude toward my wardrobe. Iris Apfel is a huge inspiration. I don’t dress like her but I’ve been highly influenced by her attitude toward fashion, which is to wear what you like and what makes you feel good. I don’t take fashion very seriously; I just know that I love it.
4. What’s your favorite non fashion hobby?
Swimming on horseback (seen here) and playing scrabble. Seriously! But not at the same time. That would be weird.
5. How much time do you spend working on your blog?
Not enough! I have to work full time on my clothing line, Postlapsaria, so my blogging is done in my free moments. I often have to create a free moment in order to keep it going.
6. What songs/albums are you loving right now?
I’m the kind of girl who grows attached to albums and doesn’t let go until I’ve absolutely killed it. I’m still in love with M83, Band of Horses, Andrew Bird, Camera Obscura, The Bird and The Bee, Broken Social Scene, so on and so forth. I think the main album that will never die for me is The Velvet Teen’s Out of the Fierce Parade.
7. When you were little, what did you want to be when you grew up?
According to my pre-school graduation’s article in the newspaper, I wanted to be a model. I don’t ever remember wanting to be a model – I think I just said it because I didn’t know how “I want to be Paula Abdul” would be received by the reporter. I really wanted to be Paula Abdul or Madonna but it didn’t work out.
Keiko Lynn thank you so much for participating!!
