Mighty Closet: Margaret Stewart, Outfit No. 6

You may remember my friend Margaret from the Mighty Closet I did with her a few months ago. Ms. Stewart is one of my inspirations when I get dressed — she has a great eye and such a sense of fun — so when I took her photos, we did two sets. Here’s round two:

I covet this skirt. It’s so versatile and swishy.

When Margaret tried on this outfit, she wasn’t sure about the puffy Diane von Furstenberg shirt. She often pairs this skirt with a fitted black T-shirt. I felt like it depended on what she was going for; Margaret said she wasn’t sure she wanted to go for Eva Peron:

But come on. She rocks this.

The skirt is Marimekko for H&M, and it has me convinced that long skirts and T-shirts are the perfect San Francisco uniform. As User Experience Manager for You Tube, Margaret needs a lot of day to evening looks that don’t seem strange when the tech guys are still wearing sneakers at cocktail hour. Separates are the perfect option if you need to look presentable, but not overly fussy.

This antique ring is a tiny frog resting on a lilly pad. Margaret’s little girls are already fighting for ring rights.

Her versatile pointy-toe pumps are BP from Nordstrom. You may recognize them from my site banner.

The lacquer Bean Pendant is Elsa Peretti for Tiffany & Co. The hair is from God.

    This reminds me that I want the Marimekko bedding from Crate & Barrel. I also want to steal Margaret’s skirt!

    Jealous. And that ring! I must go shopping soon.

    That ring is utterly divine. *swoon* Margaret has the best fashion sense!

  • Abigail Says:

    I always thought I would look a fool in a skirt of that length but now I wanna go get one right away! Margaret ROCKS it!

  • Becky Says:

    Lovely. And Margaret is the only other person I’ve ever seen with that Elsa Peretti bean necklace. I have the gold one. I love it because it flies under the radar–doesn’t scream TIFFANY.

  • Bachelor Girl Says:

    The whole outfit’s pretty fab, but you’re right: the hair is DIVINE.

  • Cati Basmati Says:

    I LOVE the skirt. And the shoes. But why did God forget about me when hair was being given out?
    God, you have so much to make up for this Christmas!
