We're encouraged to edit out the items in your closet (and life in general) to keep things in check, but you can already tell from the title of this post that I'm not known for my stellar skillz of spring-cleaning my closet. It's just that a small number of items — I promise, it's minuscule — are REALLY hard to let go of, you know?

I remember discovering this long white shirt with its see-through lower half at Shibuya 109 in Tokyo, either in late 2015 or early 2016, thinking, "Wow this piece could complement SO many of my modest outfits". I was already imagining a few outfits with it in my head, holding the hanger in my hand.

Except I went back to my Tokyo apartment, tried on my first imagined outfit excitedly and saw that "Huh, this doesn't look cute after all". Neither did the second nor the third hypothetical outfit I planned.

I cannot tell you how many times in Malaysia I took this out of my closet to try out a new outfit idea with it, only to hang it on the rack again because it didn't look right.

    A while ago I told myself ENOUGH IS ENOUGH and forced the white shirt to work, trying my best to draw inspiration from the street-style scene in Tokyo I witnessed back then, which if I remember correctly was a whole lot of layering of oversized on oversized on oversized on MORE oversized casual effortless goodness.

    And this, ladies and gentlemen, was the result — which I actually liked enough to wear out for a whole day out, and managed to shoot before sunset under a little rain (hence, the wet spots on me head to toe and that shield action pose that shielded me from nothing).

    (Or, even better, how you see me wearing it!)
