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.
Deb has been a stylist for BK&CO for 6 years 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
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!
