You can just call us Mary-Kate and Ashley.  All gussied up in luxurious vintage St. John threads, which happen to be embellished with Swarovski crystals..um, drool!  One perfectly fitted pencil skirt for Melanie, and one elegantly cut jacket for myself (with tassels of crystals dancing about at the cuffs), each piece of the suit glamorously twinkling with every strut.  Why is matching somuchfunn?!

To top it off, we adorned our wrists with vintage costume jewels, formerly worn by Melanie’s fashionable grandmother.  We poured the bag of costume jewelry out on my bed and dug in to the mound of sparkling goodness.  Eeee it was a game of adult dress up for sure.  Only, these decidedly chic ensembles are fit for the real world.

If only my little model friend lived in D.C…*sigh, NYC required her presence.  But there’s nothing stopping us from matching from afar!!  Still plan on buying us actual Mary-Kate and Ashley tanks…anyone looking for something of this sort- eBay has this! 

Melanie’s Outfit (pretty much straight vintage):

My Outfit:

  • Vintage St. John jacket
  • Vintage Bottega Veneta shoes
  • Dress – H&M..similar one
  • Envelope clutch – thrift find, but loving this one
  • Bubble umbrellies: Walmart!

    I love how you deconstructed the vintage suit and made it modern and sexy. Really refreshing! Makes me want to find one for myself
