The cast of the the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII was just announced! In this far side of the galaxy, I couldn't be more excited! More than the return of the original cast, this installment will be directed by THE J.J. Abrams whom I LOVED ever since Alias. With Abrams at the helm, this could be the first Star Wars installment that die hard fans can actually love since Episode VI in '83.

Episode VII won't be in theaters until December 18, 2015, BUT to celebrate its return, a fan has to do a little Amazon shopping! I was thinking of getting the famous Princess Leia slave-outfit but I don't quite have the body for that.
So, I found this awesome reversible Chewbacca/Han Solo Jacket that would be perfect for our upcoming Japan trip this November. Now don't expect me to do an OOTD just yet but I promise that when we get to the appropriate space-like cold, I will lol.
I tried looking EVERYWHERE here in the Philippines but there are no local stores selling this yet and if they were, it would definitely cost an arm and a leg given that this is an official Star Wars merchandise. There are some cheap looking ones that are sold as Halloween costumes but nobody wants those. Officially licenced and 100% awesome (!!!), I just had to get this from Amazon instead.
Thanks to my trusty GCASH American Express® Virtual Pay, I got the item for $113 (P5311) including shipping to my US address also provided by GCASH via My-ShoppingBox. Once I receive the item in the US in a few days, I can then have it shipped here. If you had somehow read any of my online shopping posts before, this allows me to ship the items that I buy online directly to my doorstep for really affordable shipping fees and without paying for huge tax fees.
I can't wait to try this baby on! But until it gets here, may the force be with you kids!
