I have neglected my little child these last months drowned by work and other projects. As we slowly emerge from winter, I am renewing my vows with my still young blog and it is good to be back. Is there a better sartorial way to celebrate the return of Spring than updating our wardrobe? I think not!
I stopped by la Braderie de mode québécoise yesterday. It is a meeting of various Quebecer designers selling their end-of-season items at a discount price varying from 50% to 80% off.
I went there for one reason: Mackage's Boa jacket in black...

However, at 700$, I found it to be too expensive for what it is (the wool is rather thin for a winter coat and the sleeve leather are rather thick). So I waited for the winter sales, but it was sold out by then. I decided I would try my luck at la braderie. Yet another snow storm was reminding us that although we are almost half way through April it is never truly Spring here until May, but it didn't stop me from fulfilling my mission. The good side of it was there was no one at the fair, so I could roam in the alleys easily.
And lucky I was! I grabbed the last XS on the racks, but I always met this very similar beauty.

I couldn't decide between both so I ended up buying both. At such a discount price, it was still a steal. I like the mix of medium, their structural asymmetrical shape. They are like thick wrap sweater and will probably become instant classic in my wardrobe. You never have too much of these...
