Probably one of the most dramatic outfits ever, I unexpectedly went twinning with the crows in Osaka on this day. Went for a dramatic all-black outfit with interesting silhouettes. I've literally been dreaming of this shoot for months because I've been saving this outfit for my trip to Japan. Haha! I even had this specific shot and scenario in mind, however, it was neither spring nor fall so I couldn't count on some falling foliage to make this scenery even more dramatic. But enough about my photo shoot dreams, let's get onto the outfit!
I've been dying to wear this top since I got it at the January 2015 in Hong Kong. I originally saw this top at Zara somewhere in Manila and I tried it on out of curiosity and fell in love so hard! Unfortunately, at 3000 bucks, it was way too pricey for a sweater-cardigan hybrid. I vowed though that I would totally snatch it up as soon as it went on sale. When Zara finally did go on sale I wasn't able to find it at all and I was about to give up until I saw it on sale at the Hong Kong Airport just minutes before my flight back to Manila. Talk about meant to be!
So it's been sitting in my closet ever since, waiting for its time to shine. Until last Christmas, that is. :D
Paired with my Superstars because it was the obvious choice.
When it got really cold, I threw on my jacket and went about my day. Other than being a dramatic statement top, I love how the jacket can also be a great layering piece. The beautiful waterfall detail will give your outfit a lot of drama and softness. I'm sure you can tell how much I love this shirt. Haha!
