Military March






(Phillip Lim cadet jacket, Zara dress, Silence + Noise leggings, Jeffrey Campbell platforms)

Like any frequent shopper, I love hunting down the best bargains and scoring a good deal. But sometimes, there are those special, one of a kind pieces that speak to you (yes, clothes do speak to me...I sometimes imagine them jumping off their hangers, crying, "Buy me! I belong to you! Wear me, love me!"). And when that happens, it's so hard to say no. This cadet jacket was indeed a hefty splurge for me, but everytime I wear it, I break into a smile and do a little jig. That's how I know it was worth every hard-earned penny!

You made me smile.. YEEES, I can confirm... CLOTHES CAN SPEAK TO YOU ;)... and when this happen you simply cannot say "NO".

article §1: Woman and Fashion
Clothes can speak.
It´s strickly forbidden to say "no".

Your jacket ist 2die4!! It´s always so lovely to see how happy you look and how you give every look that special something!!!

Girl, you have an amazing style! I absolutey LOVE the military jacket. I have a thing for military jackets in general, but that is just a standout piece. Really like those shoes as well!

Hi Tiffany!!
Thanks so much for leaving a comment on my blog! Wow, your outfit is a stunning and very inspiring mix!
I'm having a similar jacket in navy blue sitting in my closet and didn't thought of it for a while now. But need to wear it again asap! :-D
The Philip Lim jacket is a great find!
Will visit often!!

Very cute. I love that jacket--it's worth every (pretty) penny!

P.S. Did you wear that to work?

TLT, I don't know where to begin, I am solely amazed with your outfits! I luv to read Lucky magazine and online they have this thingy whereas you profile yourself, your style and everything. You should consider doing it because not only do you create these elegant ensembles but you look sooo divine in them. You are the perfect model with your own signature style. Everything you're wearing I want!!! p.s. Your pedicure is sooo perfect too!!!!

i've got a couple of things in my closet that yell at me like that, too! i just don't waste wearing them to the office lol...that's what my black hoodies and v-neck tees are for!

Tiffany Ling Tse said...

Thumbelina-- Nope, I didn't wear it to work! I wore it last Saturday :) My workplace has a very flexible dress code so I know I could have worn it but somehow, some of my favorite outfits feel too dramatic or over the top for the office! I don't know, maybe I should start wearing my "real" outfits to work!!

God, I so agree. If I had a steady source of income, there are definitely a number of pieces i wouldn't mind investing in. I don't believe in buyer's remorse!
