Who is the Keggy Girl? The Keggy Girl is demure, though not dainty. She is one to swap sweaters with friends and shop online for vintage consignment. She wears pink if the mood suits her and is not afraid to be just plain pretty. Her closet houses a full spectrum of denim washes and a climbing height of heels. The Keggy Girl loves a good bargain and enjoys the chase for designer steals. She splurges on the one in a million pieces that will stay with her forever.
The Keggy 2014 Collection — heirloom pieces for all of life’s defining moments.

Keggy debuted its 2014 collection during New York Fashion Week at New York City’s iconic Showroom Seven! Designer Kerry Leikus took on the area by (and with a storm) marching into the spotlight with winter-wares befitting the Duchess and little sister Pippa. Sibling rivalry is likely to ensue over these precious heirloom pieces carefully constructed of pastel herringbones, plaids and tweeds. A mixture of candy coated hues and dollop-sized buttons are not only dainty but deliciously demure. The collection is replete with detail and diversity in style, seamlessly transitioning from a Saturday stroll to an afternoon tea.
Keggy joins the company of the world’s leading fashion designers at Showroom Seven. Perched amongst some of the most prestigious art galleries in New York City, S7 has a 20 year history of providing sales, public relations, showroom, and business services to fashion and lifestyle clients around the globe. It remains a must-see destination for buyers and press, as well as the perfect showcase for Keggy’s 2014 Collection.
Disney star Olivia Holt graces the cover of the February/March issue of Girl’s Life in a hot pink number that is perfect for any date night. Holt hastily approaches A-lister celebrity status as she joins the company of recent GL covergirls such as Ariana Grande, Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez. The sixteen year old all-American actress and singer from Tennessee is most famous for her roles on Kickin’ It and the Disney original movie, Girl vs. Monster.
Holt’s new show, I Didn’t Do It, premiered on January 17. Nostalgic Lizzie McGuire and Hannah Montana fans will instantly connect with the similar comedic teen rebellion show that displays the challenges of growing up with humor that reminds us all not to take ourselves too seriously. Although we will miss Holt on the fourth season of Kickin’ It, we look forward to seeing the development of her character as Lindy on I Didn’t Do It, as she is immersed in the company of female friends.
GL gives its readers the behind-the-scenes vantage of its cover shoot, offering a glimpse of the real Holt beyond the camera. Holt reveals that her favorite go-to trend of the season is brightly colored accessories, and this issue of GL features an Adventures and Wonderland spread that has its share of bold baubles, belts and bows. Keggy’s multi-colored basket weave belt is paired with pearls to complete the Free Bird look of a fringed kimono, shimmering top and tailored pants. Hand-illustrated drawings provide the backdrop for the feature’s “spring’s land of enchantment, where ladylike and tomboy go hand in hand.”
