After last week’s jaunt into joke Wraith Squadron outfits and Her Universe’s exciting sneak peek of the upcoming Rogue Squadron hoodie tank, it looks like we’ve got some Star Wars going strong and X-Wing pilots locked on. So what better way to kick off Monday morning than a bright burst of X-Wing orange and Rebel Alliance gang signs.

We all got the memo that Her Universe is totally awesome, right? I went a little more casual with today’s outfit because I just had to do a styling for their wonderful Battlestar Galactica inspired Cylon t-shirt. The outfit and pictures are slightly influenced by Number Six and also by Number Eight, since I am wearing Sharon’s dog tags as a finishing touch to the outfit and also because she’s my favourite. Mostly I just wanted an excuse to enjoy the nice weather and ham it up in this fabulous shirt which I absolutely recommend getting if you’re a BSG fan! I love the cut of it, especially the neckline, and I think it’s a great yet fairly subtle little way to show your love for the show.
Shhh… There are many copies… and they have a plan. (Don’t worry, I’m not a Cylon.)
Cylon T-shirt: Her Universe
Red Skinny Jeans: Express
Combat Boots: Macy’s
Necklace: Official BSG Sharon Agathon Colonial Fleet dog tags
Bracelets: Assorted shops, including Black Rune Jewelers
Sometimes, it’s just love at first sight with a t-shirt. Or at least that’s what it felt like for me with the Padme Nouveau t-shirt from Her Universe. Until ten minutes before, I had never even heard of Her Universe and yet there me and my friends were, chatting with the lovely Ashley Eckstein, and that gorgeous red shirt was just sitting there on display and calling to me. (I swear. It was actually saying “Briiiiaaaa! Buuuuuy meeeeee!”) Twenty minutes later, I just had to give in and I’ve never regretted buying it. It’s honestly one of my favourite t-shirts and getting to wear it with something besides jeans is always fun.
Plus? I rediscovered these unworn tights at the bottom of my drawer while looking for something to help jazz up this outfit and am super glad I did.
Padme Nouveau T-Shirt: Her Universe
Pleated Skirt: Guess
Gold Flats: Lauren by Ralph Lauren
You can check out all of the new products (and all of the existing ones) at the Her Universe shop but we just had to highlight some of them here. Ashley’s added two new shirts to Her Universe’s rapidly growing collection of Doctor Who tops, one of them being the below pictured ‘Girl Who Waited’ shirt and a shirt that simply reads ‘Whovian’. Other new t-shirts include a Star Trek shirt and a really neat Japan inspired Star Wars shirt. My favourites, however, are the fabulous Battlestar Galactica sweatshirt and the Darth Vader PJs. (Just tell me that grumpy Vader isn’t adorable!)
To top it all off, Her Universe is having some Cyber Monday exclusive deals (like an adorable Chewbacca pin) so make sure you check out all of their awesome items this Monday! (Or, y’know, add them to your own Christmas list…)
If you’re a geek girl who hasn’t heard of Her Universe yet then allow me to introduce you to one of the greatest online shops for geeky t-shirts! Ashley Eckstein, the voice actress for Ahsoka Tano on the Star Wars: Clone Wars, started the company several years ago after noticing the distinct lack of Star Wars t-shirts for women. Since then, she has expanded past Star Wars and now features shirts with designs from Star Trek, Doctor Who, Battlestar Galactica, and several other SyFy properties.
This year, I was especially excited for October to roll around because not only would I be drinking pumpkin spice lattes and breaking out my boots but I would also get to bring out my fabulous Her Universe Halloween tote bag!
And here’s a close up of the bag since the lighting was not cooperating with me:
Even though this bag has a very limited season, I still love carrying it as often as possible. It’s great for just tossing my wallet, phone, a book, and a sweater into and going! This Katie Cook design is cute, fun, and almost always gets compliments. It’s also one of the easiest ways to get into the Halloween spirit.
While the Halloween tote bag I have was a limited edition, you can still get an adorable Her Universe seasonally appropriate bag. Starting today, Her Universe is offering a brand new Katie Cook designed bag for Halloween 2012! They are likely to go fast so head on over to the online store today to check it out. (The bag has Darth Vader in a unicorn costume. Just try and tell me that’s not awesome.)
