The Crows In Osaka

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!

  1. You're fortunate to find a piece of clothing to your liking go on sale. Often, I visit a store to check on a piece I like but when they go on sale, it's not there! It's a nice top. -Claire Algarme

  2. I am so used to wearing all black every time I go out that it's normal even for my friends. Lol. I really like the outfit here, not just because it's black but it looks super comfy!

  4. Because of cultural reasons, I could never wear an all-black outfit like this. I do not even own a single black polo shirt or t-shirt ever in my life.

  5. That's a perfect OOTD. Zara definitely makes some fabulous winterwear! My friend saw one for 100 GBP and got way too tempted and bought it without any sale!!!

  6. You look great in black. The superstar gave you a great contrast that worked perfectly for your outfit.

  7. Super lucky that you got in on sale and in another country too! It looks great, and actually is sort of an androgynous piece, so it fits a lot of different styles.

  13. I like the monotone, all black and just the white 3 stripes sneaker stands out among all. Good pairing. Japan is always good to go again and again.

  14. Sometime I feel monochrome is a safest bet to go without thinking that it will look weird.
