Are you still riding that Rogue One high? We’re still riding that Rogue One high. (Don’t talk to me about the Cassian Andor Problem I have now. I DID NOT ASK FOR THIS.) (Okay but actually more on That Problem in a week or two.)
ANYWAYS. Fairly close to Rogue One’s release, Hot Topic finally came out with their inspired collection and… honestly, I wasn’t terribly impressed with most of it. This sweater was definitely the standout though if you’re a fan of the cold shoulder trend! More importantly though, please check out these boots I found for this outfit. I’m not a huge fan of Steve Madden because they don’t fit my feet well but these are so damn cute for such a reasonable price that I’m tempted to buy them right freaking now.
Look, I LOVED Rogue One a stupid amount and while I may have ended up with a Cassian Andor Problem, I also really liked Jyn because HEY GIRL I get you and I also don’t care to smile frequently.
I won’t lie and pretend that I wasn’t thinking of Jyn when I bought this jacket a few months ago because I totally was. It may not match the shirt/vest combo she wears but it just felt right. The rest of the outfit came together from there. (Just pretend those are kyber crystals on the necklace.)

So here’s the thing: I have a KOTOR problem by which I mean that I have been desperately in love with the Knights of the Old Republic games since I first played them back in 2014 and I still love the hell out of them. In particular, I fell for Revan who I firmly believe is definitely a woman of color and not the bland, dark haired dude that seems to be the default for so many games.
POINT IS I love Revan and when I saw some of the looks from the Valentino Spring 2016 collection, they definitely made me think of her and what she might wear from the high-fashion fancy looks on our world. Without further ado… the dresses!
I know, you’re shocked: it’s Bria doing a Black Widow outfit and not Lin but it had to happen eventually! But hey: when you get a cute new cardigan and you wear it as a part of your work outfit on a day when it’s really nice, taking pictures for a geek fashion blog seems mandatory.
Bonus: I was reading Black Widow: Red Vengeance on the metro on the day I wore this to work and it was COMPLETELY BY ACCIDENT
