In the flurry of fancy-frocked young women pouring into Saint Genevieve for New for the Night's website launch, Magen Pastor flaunted a stylishly independent look. The photographer/makeup artist/fashion blogger and mother of twins explained that on this night it was "dress for less" and besides she was feeling less than svelte (don't we all know that circumstance).
"I felt fat in one outfit and just then went with something else," she said.
That something else meant a bejeweled jacked from 2b Bebe Outlet worn over an ephemeral white dress with light embroidery from Target, the Xhilaration label. Her shoes were from Forever 21 and her necklace and bracelets from Stella & Dot. The Dooney & Bourke handbag is vintage.
"I have been in the fashion industry a long time," she said. "I have a keen eye for pieces I guess, I never look at brands or designers."
Today, Megan works as a makeup artist for Exquisite Reflections and for Time Talent Modeling.
