Trend Alert: The Sukajan or Souvenir Jacket
Have you noticed the increase of cherry blossom Snaps and Instagram posts on your feed lately? It seems like everyone has hied off to Japan and we're getting major vacay envy. Another thing we've noticed? The rise of the Sukajan or the souvenir jacket.
These jackets originated in Japan after World War II, when occupying American soldiers wanted to commemorate their time overseas. They're sort of like embroidered silk bomber jackets that were meant as a keepsake. These days, they're regarded more as a statement piece and even celebrities and bloggers are in on the trend.
Harry Styles in the "Drag Me Down" video. He also wore one when they were on GMA.
Zayn at a fashion show almost a year ago. (Check out his hair!)
Hailee Steinfeld saying goodbye to Tokyo.
Abbey Sy waiting for her train in Japan.
Reese Lansangan exploring Tokyo.
So where do you score this hot-ticket item (which gets sold out quickly, btw)? Enter Japan Lover Me store (where Abbey and Reese got their jackets!).
They've got a wide variety of souvenir jackets to choose from with prices depending on the quality of the sukajan. And good new is they ship to the Philippines! The jackets don't come cheap, though, so you might need to save up for these threads.
Have you spotted these on your friends? What would you wear a souvenir jacket with? Hit is us up in the comments below and let's swap style tips!

Dear me in six years, I wonder how life will treat you when you’re already 26 years old. Will you be financially stable? Will you be working in an advertising agency while pursuing everything about the arts? Will you be doing freelancing and living in a condo by then? I don’t know since things are very uncertain. I hope by the time you graduate from college and face the real meaning of the world, you’ll know what the real purpose of doing and living in the art will be.
I know it’s been so tough ever since you turned 20 but that’s how life works, I guess. There will be a lot of hopes and trials, breakdowns, and breakthroughs but I have high hopes of you becoming the better version of yourself. You always do, though. You were never a quitter. Making decisions is getting harder and harder as you grow but I hope it doesn’t make you stop doing what you really love to do. You will face different people with different perspectives. You will feel like a stranger once again, it’s like you were back in your freshmen year. It’s going to be tougher than you’ve expected but you can do it. I believe you can.
Most of the time, people's perception of us as a strong person makes us feel that we are not entitled to be vulnerable because they might be disappointed for seeing our weak spots. And so when we are hurting, we are often scared of extreme emotions and so bury our feelings. We deny them, trying to avoid the pain we feel.
But by doing that, we are just allowing it to come back to us and haunt us. And when it comes back, it might be stronger and it will be harder for us to get over it than when we faced them first. I realized it just now that facing those emotions will scare them until they're gone. The saying 'Let it hurt until it hurts no more' goes true. Admitting your pain to yourself doesn't make you weak. It only proves that you are strong enough to acknowledge such extreme emotions without avoiding them. We are humans and it's okay if we hurt sometimes.
Before, sliding over the rainbows
Now, our hearts are bruised
Days once full of love and laughter
Became dawns of forfeited ever after
Smiles that bring ticklish sensations
Turned to cold question and answer
Figuring who would be the next instructor
The queen’s awake
Grappling to the happiness that the sorrow and sadness take
Going back to all the promises he couldn’t make
Poetry #2: YOUR VOICE
When you talk, your voice brightens my days. You provide me comfort in all the little things that you do. Your deep and mellow voice sends a tingling feeling inside me that makes me want to keep you in my life. I love talking to you every time, every day, every night and every minute if I could. You're someone just simply amazing.
