Meet our stylists...




Co-owner and the B in BK&CO, Barbara has worked in retail since she was in high school and, except for momentarily wanting to be a sports journalist, has never imagined herself doing anything else. Her thoughts about her 21 years at BK&CO: “It’s never work – it’s sometimes exhausting but it’s the best job surrounded by my best friend, the best staff and offering great service to the best customers. Pure joy!”

Favorite Go-To Outfit: Skinny pants, Frye boots, and anything leopard!

Style Advice: Have 3 or 4 outfits hanging in the front of your closet that can go anywhere depending on accessories and that make you feel fabulous – then on mornings when you wake up late (like me), you’ll feel pulled together and styled without having to stress too much. Stress can really kill a great outfit.



Co-owner and the K in BK&CO, Karen planned to own a boutique with her best friend, Barbara, since she was a junior in high school. Karen loves this about the women’s boutique that is her dream: “I have the opportunity to empower women to try something new. Most of the time it is a piece of clothing they would have never tried on. Other times it is opening them up to new possibilities of color. Always, it is allowing them to feel as great as they look in their new clothing.”

Favorite Fashion Accessory: tri-metal hip belt and the BK&CO signature necklace worn wrapped twice.

Style Advice: Always put it ALL together. Accessorize, accessorize, accessorize, without overdoing it.



Deb has been a stylist for BK&CO for over a decade and a half, and brings a decidedly cosmopolitan twist to her fashion approach. She takes her inspiration from the windows of 5th Avenue in New York City and Worth Avenue in Palm Beach. Having 2 closets, one in Connecticut and one in Florida, Deb knows how to wardrobe for any season and how to maximize fashion impact with accessories and go-to pieces.

Current Fashion Obsession: skinny pants from Lissette – they are flattering on so many shapes.

Style Advice: Accessories are essential for every outfit, and make sure you never leave home without a great handbag.



Irena is our Ukrainian fashionista. She’s been a midwife, kindergarten teacher and a vice principal. She speaks three languages but she’s most passionate about how fashion speaks for her clients. On her fashion bucket list is to step out on the red carpet and take a picture with George Clooney.

Fashion Legacy: I hope that my fashion advice for my clients is truthful and honest.

Style Advice: Remember to think of comfort along with style. Once you’ve found your look, be true to it!
