That Megan Mercieca went to fashion school comes as no surprise. The 24-year-old Hampden resident has created a signature style that's "a mix between casual chic and grunge chic." We "glimpsed" Mercieca as she was picking up lunch in Federal Hill on her break from her job as an assistant at M Salon. She wore a black cotton short-sleeve, scoop-neck t-shirt she got from freepeople.com, black American Apparel tights, and a black floral canvas Kimchi Blue pencil skirt from Urban Outfitters. She picked up her black suede Jeffrey Campbell zip-on wedge cage sandals at a store in Oregon, and her black canvas tote was a vintage store find. Her cuff bracelet was one she made out of a fork. When it comes to fashion rules, Mercieca has some basic truths. "A pair of jeans can dress down any style. A pair of heels can dress up any style. And accessories make everything more feminine."
