What I’m Wearing
* Victoria’s Secret khaki pants -cuffed. …seen here. I wanted these to be a bit big so I sized up …but really, I think they were cut to be loose already so sizing up just is a bit overkill. I don’t mind them this big really because they are ridiculously comfortable but if I knew they were going to be this big I would have opted for no pleats. But still, the comfort factor is winning today. {ugh, and now that I’m searching VS for a link to these pants, I’ve just realized how many other cute pant styles they have right now and now I want to have them} …and after all that, I think the pants are sold out.
* Victoria’s Secret sheer tank …seen here …and unbelievably more transparent than I thought …even now.
* Black and ivory polka-dot dress ..Nordstrom.com …{old} seen here …and still reminds me of Dolce & Gabana’s Spring 2009 pajama looks
* Boutique 9 Lace-up Platform Pump …last seen here and here
* Vintage pearl drop earrings ..grandma’s
* Tiffany’s silver lock necklace & charm braceles
* Gucci chain with charm necklace wrapped around wrist
* Ivory Pashmina scarf
* Socks are actually thigh-highs {nylon/tights texture} that I’ve folded over

* Hair : Full frontal French Braid on one side – Tutorial Here …then a regular French braid on the opposite side going back {second shot -pseudo tutorial Here}. I braided each of these sections down to the ends and tied with an elastic. Then actually knotted the braids together and pinned down with bobby pins. {the second shot looks kind of flat but I think it’s the angle}

    Maegan, oh my goshh…I am in love with your hair and how you style it! I wish you could come do my hair for me. I love what you did with the braids. that polka dot dress looks amazing too. I am liking the slouchy pants look lately! You look amazing as usual!

    I love it, except for the socks; it makes the outfit look less posh and more child… Think you could work in black tights if you were really cold though?

    Hi Maegan,

    I’ve been watching your blog for a while, but never got the chance to really comment!
    I have to say that I am absolutely fascinated by your personality, your original style, never boring, always making place for better:)
    I finally made time to post a comment cause this look is too beautiful!
    The styling, the make up and your hair are so glamorous!
    Have a blast this weekend!

    Love,
    Gia!

    except when i do any kind of braid, idiot people comment, ‘you must be mexican, that’s why you have braids’ ugh.

    I love your creativity and confidence. I’ve tried many looks with socks on, but I’ll never gave the guts to leave my bedroom with the looks. I’m just too shy. I love that outfit, yes the shirt is sheer, but who cares, it’s just skin for crying out loud.

    Have a good day.

    Maegan!! I’m so sorry, please take the comment for the good side, I like the look, except for the socks :( maybe in black looks better!
    I love the socks trend, but not in this case, I think white is a improvable point on the outfit.
    Kisses!!!!

    Hi Maegan!

    I think you look fabulous. While I don’t know that I would rock the socks, I think it’s awesome and fun that you did. Why not do something that’s a little controversial? :)

    Oh it’s so funny. Some of you TOTALLY got the look …but most didn’t.

    Last Anon: YES!
    Diane: EXACTLY!
    Nicole: I think so too ;)

    But a little controversy is always fun!

    Also what’s funny? I bought this dress before the D&G show.
