"Well the man in there swings while the silliest things 
Floppin around in my brain. 
And I try not to dream 
but them possible schemes Swim around, 
wanna drown me in synch. 
 And I, don't know how, 
to slow it down. 
Oh my mind's racing from 
chasing pirates."

Chasing Pirates by Norah Jones 

It's always too late when the fall in the tropical comes.
But, when it arrives, the pace of life has been accelerated,
with a lot to learn, quite a few to practice.
I think I'm well prepared. ^ ^

 Oscar Wilde onced said,“You can never be overdressed or overeducated.”In most circumstance, this quote is a basic rule for a majority of people to choose their outfits.
One can't deny that less-is-more chic has probably been advanced of any other styles. Back to reality, however, not everyone are like Karlie Kloss with an ideal stature, nor few of us are likely to become Kate Moss.When it comes to ones who don't have a perfect stature or even out of physical shape, it seems much wiser for them to attempt the "More-is-more" style. Yu Masui,Anna dello Russo,Bryan's that the sight around only gathers on you while you are expressing YOURSELF instead of wearing fashion. Oversize, patterns-on-patterns, literariness....these are the words to describe the overconfident you.

Outfits: (Don't) Kiss the crying girl !

Plaid Shirt: Uni Qlo
Denim Jacket: Big John Vintage
Wool Varsity Jacket with Leather: NEFF Vintage 
Jeans: Urban Research
Color block Sneakers: New Balance
Classic Watch: Casio
Jelly eyewear: Oliver Peoples

It's all 'bout enthusiasm when receiving the 3.1 Phillip Lim "Kiss V" inspired sweater since it's been an absolute attraction to me at the first sight, and without hesitation being out of stock almost everywhere at present!

The sweater is from 3.1 Phillip Lim Pre-fall 2012 "Neo-noir comics" collection, which featured jackets, t-shirts, and accessories with recognizable comic faces by Roy Lichtenstein and Andy Warhol.  Lim nicely shifted this literal interpretation into a very wearable collection of separates in black, white, and red with some mustard accent colors that don’t take ‘comic’ too seriously.

In this look, I try a pattern-on-pattern way to mix the those different elements together, conveying a retro sporty sense as well as interesting thought-provoking chic.I'm also gonna tell you guys that I got the inspiration of this look from Susie Lau (from Style Bubble) and Sandra Hagelstam (from 5 inch and up ,which has been my favs in the recent days)

Moreover, the easy-to-match transparent clutch I'm holding is available in my online shop, with a special thanks price of ¥129 (approx. $20.66)

Style Code: Wear Knit Forever!

5. 3.1 PHILLIP LIM Crying Girl Jumper SOLD OUT
7. Jason Wu Stripe Cotton Knit Jumper $899
17. Kenzo Tiger Embroidery Sweater SOLD OUT

 It's been quite clear that this is a SUPERXXLARGE OUTTA SPACIOUS winter for the time being.Fashion brands like Balenciage, ACNE,Stella McCartney, Celine, Comme des Garçons have swarmed to introduce their surrealistically oversize pieces as if it goes like "the bigger, the fitter."

From another aspect, however, not everyone has the courage or mental aura to rein those dramatic fashion dream. Therefore, as the progressive appearance of the all-sold-out KENZO Tiger Embroidery Sweaters and 3.1 Phillips Lim Ka-Pow Sweaters have taken over the fashion months' street snaps, we are pleasant to see a new developing style trend——wearing KNITWEARS !

Consisting of window-checks, stripes, pop art, or amusing  patterns. Rolled keeping warm, practicality, effortless chic, and unparalleled comfortability in one, knitwears provide us with idiosyncratic mood for wearing as well as body shape modification, which caters to the growing trend of minimalism.

As for most people with limited budget, choosing a qualified and suitable knitwear seems by means more than that of consuming a dog prints tee from Givenchy. To some extent, even if a J.W. Anderson for Topshop Sweater maintains its value more than an expensive ready-to-wear like the dog prints tee in season.
