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 Shopbopย ๐Ÿ™‚
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!

Your blunt bangs (or fringe) are perfect on you! The almost all-black ensemble is super rad. As for the bipolar weather, it's happening here as well. One day you're all layered up, the next – can't stand to wear more than just the necessary. Uniqlo's opened up the first branch here in Malaysia in 2010. ๐Ÿ™‚ xx

You make black in a lovely way! I seldom wear black cuz it is too bored with me. It is impressing with this outfit. The sweatshirt is chic and I love its bottom. Quite hard to imagine it is from Uniqlo. This collaboration does not launch in my hometown ๐Ÿ™

Looking amazing Samantha! I know they opened a few Uniqlos in California but I love shopping there for basics. My boyfriend and I love it there because of how affordable it is. And thanks for sharing the collection. I'm a HUGE Helmut Lang fan so I'm checking it right now!

Oh good for you it rains there. In my city, it hasn't rain for like 3 months solid and for someone who loves rain like me, it's quite sad here ๐Ÿ™ By the way, love the entire ensemble of this look! Black never fails to amaze me ๐Ÿ˜‰

They haven't opened a Uniqlo is my town yet but I have a lot of hope! I still can't get over how perfect your haircut is. How did you decide to move to Tokyo? I've always wanted to go there it seriously looks like the best city ever..

Love those sunnies!! Would have been so awesome to see those traditional looking vending streets, I know I definitely would want to see it! Weather has been horrible here in NZ too, it's supposed to be Spring but the wind and rain is so crazy.. like a storm ๐Ÿ™ Hope it gets better over there! Have a fabulous week Samantha ๐Ÿ™‚

Take care always, love Christine ~ xx
