In between watching The Force Awakens, I watched my Return of the Jedi blu ray with the commentary on, and Carrie Fisher commented on a matter I have thinking about recently. While on the bridge in the Ewok village, Carrie notices how her onscreen beau is always wearing the same outfit. Sure, maybe a color is different here and there, but it’s the same basic ensemble of a light shirt (open slightly for sexiness), side-patterned pants, boots, and a cool jacket or vest. She then noted “I get three outfits, while my mother, Natalie Portman, gets 3 million outfits. Poor Harrison only gets one,”. I had recently thought to myself that while it’s awesome that Padme is so damn fashionable, it’s unfortunate that Leia didn’t get to have as many outfits as her mother. Sure, maybe it was a budget thing, but I like knowing that Carrie Fisher definitely took notice of this inequality. She didn’t sound genuinely bitter, but I’m sure she’s just ever so slightly jealous that she didn’t get to have as many wardrobe changes. But then again…so many elaborate outfits and hairstyles to match- that must have a pain or at the very least a bore for Natalie Portman to have the hair and make up team work on so much every day…unless she wore wigs for part of the time, like it was briefly revealed in an episode of the Clone Wars one time…which, admittedly, was a bit disappointing, but it makes sense that in reality, a senator would have to manage her time well in order to take care of her people and still look royally fabulous.
I’ve talked about beautiful Star Wars fashion before but this time, let’s just take a look at Her Universe’s new Star Wars: The Force Awakens line for Hot Topic and how I truly need every single piece:
Why are these the only things not on sale for 25% on the website right now?! Only thing is that the dresses seem just slightly fancy, I don’t know where I would wear them. The BB-8 dress is so darling, perfect for a party…but what party?! SOMEBODY THROW A PARTY AND INVITE ME SO I CAN WEAR THIS DRESS! And the stormtrooper and Kylo Ren dresses…I adore those, and I usually don’t even go for Dark Side when it comes to my Star Wars apparel. But I need these…I could absolutely wear these all to conventions. I would wear them in every day life if I could, but most days I have to be in my work uniform. Sure, I could just go out all the time, but I don’t really do that…but I guess I’ll have to start going out more to rock these dresses?! Where would you lovely readers rock these dresses? The Rey cardigan…I could wear that every day and even while cosplaying as Rey. And I would wear the Captain Phasma and Finn jackets all the freaking time. I already love leather jackets, so that already fits in my everyday wear. And you can’t see in these pictures, but if you go Hot Topic’s website you can see the Captain Phasma leggings they paired with Phasma’s jacket alone, and I need those as well. Who says leggings can’t be pants sometimes?! Haters, that’s who.
Anyway, continuing to ride the Star Wars fashion train, a friend of mine recently requested pictures of all my Star Wars apparel for her entertainment. How could I say no?! I thought that perhaps, others would enjoy seeing my collection (so far) as well, so here it is:
Okay, so here are the few I have blogged about previously:
Ahsoka tee, Yoda tank, tie dye Star Wars top and stormtrooper earrings, and my R2-D2 sweater. All by Her Universe except the tie dye top.
And here is most (not all, I realized I forgot at least 3 afterwards) of my Star Wars apparel:
Most of that is Her Universe, because Ahsley Eckstein is the best!!
Oh, and you’ve already seen my Star Wars Christmas sweater 😉
I’m waiting on the arrival of this Hutt-Slayer Leia tank from BeepBoopBeepClothing. I’m already in love with the Oola one I have.
OH, and this other R2-D2 dress I have by Her Universe:
Not pictured: pajamas, socks, nightshirts, etc.
Also, while we’re on the topic of fashion, if anyone out there is looking for some deals on cute clothes, check out my closet on Poshmark! And if you’re a member of Poshmark, follow me and I’ll follow you back! I actually got my Rogue Squadron Her Universe dress the day I signed up, which to me, was a sign that this Poshmark thing would be a good endeavor. So if you’re looking to sell clothes and also get good deals (and possibly even acquire some hard finds), you should totally sign up for it. I have sold a lot of my clothes on eBay but recently they started charging me for every listing, which they previously hadn’t done before except maybe once; when I realized they were charging me, I waited until I could do the listings for free again. But for now, I’m trying to get rid most of my unwanted/ill-fitting but still in fabulous conditions clothes on Poshmark to make a little cash. You don’t get the full amount you charge, but I’d rather take that deal than a listing fee AND final sale fee on eBay. Plus, I think more ladies check out Poshmark for clothes than they do eBay…at least if they’re aware of Poshmark’s existence? Which I wasn’t until recently…but still! It’s worth it so far.
