Plaid Skirts Edition

Choki Choki shirt from Uniqlo  |  Thrifted Plaid Skirt (Php 80)

 

I don’t know about you guys, but I have very fond memories of me, violently sucking the length of a plastic tube filled with glorious chocolate. That plastic tube’s also known as Choki Choki. 2 pesos each – back in the day.

I chanced upon this Choki Choki number while purchasing my own Jollibee shirt from Uniqlo. Now I don’t know about you, but there was just something about owning a Uniqlo x Jollibee shirt  that was deliciously ironic to me. I had to make sure I got the least tacky version of the series for myself.

This aforementioned Jollibee shirt was the result of Uniqlo’s current shirt collaboration with some of the biggest corporations in Southeast Asia. Aside from Jollibee, they’ve also got Indonesian company Choki Choki under their belt. Not sure why I’ve always assumed that Choki Choki was local (aka Philippines made). It must be the ridiculous name.

I regret to report that none of the adult shirt designs for Choki Choki were classy or at least passable. The holy grail could be found at the deepest rack of the kids’ section. This shirt that I got, featuring the original Choki Choki throwback logo, is the largest size that they had for kids. A size “150”, whatever that means. The shirt looked small – tiny in my hands like it has shrunk in the washer. But I had to bank on the fact that the shirt was jersey cotton (meaning slightly stretchable) & I had to believe that I was “small” enough to fit into a kids size.

And here we are!

Oh right, I forgot this was a Thriftshop entry! Now that you know that my shirt was from Uniqlo, the only thrifted number in this outfit is my newly acquired plaid skirt from the thrift shop of Circle C. (Circle C Congressional, checkirrrawtt). Php 80 for that flirty looking thanggg.

I don’t know. I just have this natural gravitation towards plaid and flannel, and sometimes, I am unsure whether whatever skirt I’m getting is an actual piece of fashion, or a lost coordinate from an all girls’ school uniform. Of course, I’m always hoping for the former.

 









The Next Time



Haiku Write

Shortest of the short update: I wrote my most popular haiku to date down on my new, pastel memo cube. If you’re curious and interested in reading my other haikus, go do a search on Twitter – type in ” @reeseypeasy haiku” & be sure to press the “all” tab. :) Or better yet, just order a Today’s Haiku zine from me. 100 pesos each, I ship worldwide! I’m running out of Volume 1 and about to move on to Volume 2, so email me if you want a copy :)

This website is about to undergo a clean-up of some sort, layout wise. Think of it as Reeseypeasy.com, volume 3. I’ve been having readability issues for so long due to the small, thin web font I’m using against the subtle, dotted background. It has made me grow less enthusiastic to post lengthy content because seeing the body text strains my eyes. I’m sure they’ve been straining yours too! So yup, I’ve redesigned a much simpler layout for the site, and I can’t wait for everything to be coded by one of my best(est) friends in the world, Sev.

Okay I’m done! <3 Hope you’re all doing well!

 

 






I Don’t Make Clothes Out Of Loom Bands



Shimo-1

OH HEY LOOK, ACTUAL CLOTHES! Being the royally late updater that I am, these ~outfit~ shots from my Japan trip last July is only being posted a full month after. But it’s a milestone that they even made it online, so I pat myself on the back. I quite enjoyed putting together this “ensemble” because it hits all the right chords for me = fun, visually interesting, comfortable, with a hint of boyishness.

Touristy Things



KR14-D2-2

As you may or may not know, two weeks ago, I was frolicking in Seoul, Korea with four of my dearest friends. It was totally a riot, because we spent every waking day of our eight days together. There was no bickering, no petty argument unlike what we had predicted. And instead of being totally sick of each other, when we got back we clung together like edamame beans. We daily anticipated one another’s messages in LINE and had to meet up again over coffee and cake to moan about our dream vacation that has now come to an end.

The inevitable truth of having colored hair is that IT WILL FADE – sooner than you think. If only I can go about my life without shampooing, or heck, not taking a bath at all (ew though), I probably would. Cause that would mean I’d get to keep my colorful locks forever. But alas. Grooming is a non-negotiable in this century.
