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.

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.
