What I’m Wearing
* 80’s {lightweight} black suit. Thrifted …but technically vintage, now. {antique = 100 years / vintage = 20 years} The lapels have sequins and beading. I originally bought the suit just for the great blazer but really am so happy it’s a full set. I love it. seen here
* Striped v-neck tight-fitted T-shirt. This is ancient and I have no idea who makes it. It’s not even worth taking it off right now to check the label. I love it with this because it looks like an 80’s leotard.
* Calvin Klein snakeskin pumps
* Tom Ford cat-eye sunglasses, D&G gold watch from Gilt
* Hair: Slept in a loose French braid again for easy waves ..then half up …in a fishtail braid. …specifically for drollgirl. YOU KNOW WHY!

* Vintage brass chain necklaces worn as anklets. Left is shorter and wrapped only twice, the right, three times. Also seen here and here

    Love that fishtail plait. Also love the jacket – I was just drooling over a Marios Schwab cropped jacket with rhinestone lapels.

    I LOVE fishtail braids { well… within reason because I’ve seen some pretty funky ones that are OUT OF CONTROL ….lol ummm now I have a huge urge to ‘know why’ too teeheee!} You look beautiful, and I love this half up look with the side sweep. {your hair is growing, its so BEAUTIFUL! ;)} and I love that you gave dates for antique and vintage because I was just wondering the threshold the other day. thank you! Super outfit! Happy Friday Maegan! have a great easter weekend! 😉

    Love how you added the chains. At first when I saw the pics I thought you’d done a new DIY and attached them to the shoes somehow 🙂

    I love how you cuffed up the pants, it gives it a more casual springtime feel. Have a great weekend Maegan!

    This outfit is a great lesson in how to do spring-y all black! I love how the suit isn’t too heavy or severe looking. It’s actually perfectly slouchy and chic!

    Love the way you did your hair and the necklaces around your ankles. Next I noticed the tattoo on your ankle and wondered if there were special meanings and a story behind it. Then I clicked on the “YOU KNOW WHY” and saw the YouTube video of the woman punching a guy in the nuts and saying “You know why”. (Should I associate the ankle jewelry and tattoo with getting kicked in the nuts for asking?). Love the post, and thanks for turning me on to drollgirl.

    That fishtail is so pretty! I wish I could do that to my own hair. I remember once in kindergarten my mom sat me down and did a fishtail in my hair–it seemed like it took HOURS (but I think that’s because time is different when you’re 5!).

    ooooooooooooooooooooooooh, this one is freaking CUTE! Have I ever told you that when I can’t think of anything to wear, I go look at your old outfits for inspiration and always manage to figure something out? I’m kind of lame like that. But this one is awesome and adorable as usual. 🙂 And those heels make me die in a good way. Love them!
