Mighty Closet: Margaret Stewart, Outfit No. 8


Are you seeing this, Internet? This is Margaret Stewart prevailing. Right after we took these photos, she performed a brief tap number.


It would never even occur to me to purchase that vest, let alone tie it jauntily and pair it with wide-leg trousers. Also, wouldn’t it make a great maternity piece? It would. Vest is by Splendid, and the open front knit cardigan seems to be a signature piece for that brand. Trousers are from H&M.


Two-tone shoes are by Greater LA.


The necklace/collar is handmade by an artist in Buenos Aires. Margaret bought it on the street a couple years ago. You’re already plotting how to make one for yourself, aren’t you? Me too.

  1. target had a similar “vest” this year in a variety of colors. mine is a light gray and it is SO versatile and you can wear it both in summer and winter.


  2. LOVE the Hat & Shoes
    Love the Vest, though I have fat arms so I would have to go with some sort of sleeve.
    But seriously, I don’t like the necklace, too much going on on top, which works I suppose if you aren’t busty…


  3. This one is my fave! I love the gray,white,orange combo. And Splendid is indeed splendid! I have that vest, only in black with long sleeves. If that makes sense.


  4. Margaret Stewart should NOT wear this necklace on the streets of San Francisco, because if I see her, I’m pushing her into the nearest doorway, ripping it off her neck and ABSCONDING WITH IT.

    Wow, that sounded threatening, huh? I guess I should have just gone with “ooh, I like the necklace.” Now I have frightened everyone. But chunky turquoise statement pieces are my downfall.


  5. what is the necklace made of? fabric rounds sewn together? ribbon? can’t tell from snap as it’s a bit fuzzy. LOVE the outfit, and Maggie is right, I would have never have thought to wear any of those pieces together and yet i drool for the ensemble.


  6. first one to post step-by-step instructions to make that collar (perhaps out of an old wool sweater, felted?) wins my undying loyalty. and love. and maybe i’ll bake you a cake.


  7. I’m pretty sure the necklace is made from stacked rounds of unhemmed cotton with a seed bead in the middle of each “pool.”
