About Us

Kaylin Okuma – ko:

  • I’m realistic.

  • To me, heels every day, expensive clothes, extravagant outfits, dramatic makeup aren’t reasonable and aren’t me.

  • I find comfort in an affordable outfit that’s cute but appropriate in an everyday setting.

  • I’m 5’3” (really 5’2 ¾”) but let’s round up (short legs and long torso, rectangle shape body)

  • Pants size 4 short (6 if it’s legging or runs small)

  • Tops size 4/6 or small

  • Athletic wear: small tops, medium bottom, medium sports bra
