You probably won’t believe me when I say it’s been raining all day today, because just a few days ago it was so sunny! I spent a quick afternoon in Okachimachi with Lisa the other day, a stop on the Yamanote line that I’ve actually never gotten off at before. It proved to be a very cute area, with traditional-looking vending streets reminiscent of “old Japan.”
I’ve been shopping at Uniqlo a lot lately, mainly because they have so many good collaboration lines at the moment. This sweat top I’m wearing is from the “Urban Sweats” line designed by Alexandre Plokhov, designer for Helmut Lang. You have to check out the other sweats! They are all in either gray or black and I seriously wish I had them all! I also bought a pair of sweat pants, which I hope to be posting on the blog soon. I decided to add more black to this outfit to make the sweater look as urban as possible with black pants, my vans, and my favorite Marc by Marc Jacobs sunglasses that Shop Bop was kind enough to send me. More cool sunglasses from the brand here at Shopbop 🙂
It seems like Uniqlo is opening up more branches outside of Japan – is it in or near your hometown? It recently opened up a shop in Orange County where I’m from!
