Object of Desire: Maison Martin Margiela Handmade Tassled Jacket

I’m thinking of evolving my look. Because when you work for yourself, there’s a tendency to go into schlumpy territory, which means you focus more on amassing loungewear in which you can type your magnum opus, then when you have to go out, your wardrobe looks at you and says, ” Unless we’re going to the corner store, we’re not appropriately dressed.”

Hence, it’s time to add some glamour and attitude back into my closet with a piece or two that makes immediate impact. Like this gorgeous tassled jacket from Maison Martin Margiela.  A jacket that looks like it’s spent many a night in the underground nightlife of Paris, it’s layer upon layer of tassles that will emphasize your every movement.

Paired with white skinnies and a basic tee with a sleek wedge added and I’m suddenly Kate Moss running to the grocery store, then off to some fabulous party.

Which, you know, is kind the look I want. Easy, effortless glamour. Easily achieved with the addition of this gorgeous piece.
