Maison Martin Margiela white jacket, F21 grey sweater, Zucca black wool leggings, Bakersshoes heels.

I debuted my Martin Margiela white suit jacket today. It was an impulse buy from eluxury.com, and I wondered if I was attracted to the jacket itself or the price? After receiving the jacket, I have to happily say that it's the jacket, but the price made the purchase even sweeter!

I'm literally in awe of the construction and the details. The strong shoulder is a definite Margiela trademark, but the quirky touches like the reverse jacket lapel and buttons that button inward are the icing on the cake.
It's finally near enough to Spring to start wearing white, though to be honest, it will be hard for me because I love black so much! This jacket definitely makes easing into a lighter palette effortless and I expect to see a lot of action with it in my outfit posts!
