On a recent trip to the Boston area for a program, I squeezed in a visit to Meg’s stunning home – a stone barn she and her husband (both architects) redesigned to a sleek, modern interior. She applies that same eye for design to her wardrobe, often snagging great pieces on resale sites like The Real Real and ThredUp and refashioning them.
After some serious weeding out, based mostly on colors, we started building outfits. Here are her Color Fan strips and one of those outfits.
Post-Covid, Meg wanted a more casual and contemporary look for this classic blazer to reflect her relaxed and creative work-style. Blue arrows spotlight the details:
1. The scarf was inspriation for the color combo.
2. She plans to nip in the jacket waistline to update the classic cut.
3. Pushing up the sleeves with Sleeve Bands further relaxes the look.
4. Gotta love how the little animal print shoe adds a spunky touch of pizzazz, just like Meg adds pizzazz to spaces she designs.
Being a DIY enthusiast, she was excited at the prospect of making this plum jean jacket more “her” by changing the color of the snap closures from silver to a brass tone via our favorite nail polish trick. In the photo, the top ones are original, the lower ones re-colored.
She also shared pics of her newest re-sale finds in her best colors and yummy textures. The highlights in her hair created visual texture as part of her own appearance, making textural fabrics especially flattering.
Can’t wait to see her creative updates with these new additions!
