Get in losers, we’re going to Hoth! (How many times can I make that particular Mean Girls joke? THE LIMIT DOES NOT EXIST.)
It has felt like Hoth here recently but, conveniently enough, Her Universe released their Leia vest! Admittedly, it’s a little thinner and less substantial than I’d hoped it would be but that does help it make more versatile and wearable in spring and fall. It’s comfy and while it might be a literal piece, it’s subtle enough to get away with wearing to work which is always nice.

Oh hey we’re back! Aaaaand just pretend not to notice that these pictures are from the fall because there is no way I’d be going outside in February in short sleeves. So yes, we’re back from our unannounced break and my goal is to try and bring you a new outfit every week.
I absolutely adore this shirt from Prophecy Girl which channels Bazine Netal from The Force Awakens. It’s undercover nerdy and different from what a lot of the geek fashion world is doing. Plus? It’s work appropriate! I’ll definitely be buying more from them in the future.

It’s nice when a company finally makes a piece you’ve been asking for for literal years. I just really love Padmé and the Naboo Handmaidens, folks. While I’m not huge on the color as it’s a little uhhh… sweeter? than my style usually tends, I do love how the piece looks. (Lin referred to this as “this pastel aesthetic that is such a hard left from the Bria Lookbook” when I sent her the pictures.) Just like with the skirt, the crest is subtle enough that most people will just think it’s a neat pattern. The Naboo fans though… we know.

For sizing reference, Bria is wearing a Medium in the cardigan.
Give me all of the Naboo things. All of them. This latest skirt from Her Universe hits the sweet spot for me between geeky and subtle. At first glance and even at a second glance, there’s not much overly obviously Star Wars about it. It just looks like a very pretty landscape. It would take an eagle-eyed fellow fan to spot Anakin and Padmé amongst the art or to recognize the Lake House. In short, I am a big fan.
Naboo Skirt: Her Universe
Tropical bandeau: Express
White Button Down: Express
Tan Heels: Gucci
For sizing reference, Bria is wearing a small in the Her Universe Naboo skirt.
As a note, you can buy this skirt either from Her Universe directly or from Box Lunch online or in their stores if you have one nearby. If you’re concerned about sizing, I’ve found it to fit similar to the lightsaber skirt from several years ago. There is no give in the waistband.
Because when you’ve been working like crazy on a Commander Iden Versio costume… obviously you have to make an Inferno Squad inspired dress to wear for the panel you’re running that same day at the con. Or no wait… is it just me that’s that crazy?
