The print on this dress is possibly my new favorite thing and let me tell you how bummed I am that I could only get it on one thing. We talked about Black Milk Clothing’s recent Star Wars collection in a past Fav 4 post and I ended up getting the reversible dress! I don’t now how often I’ll get to wear it but I’m in love with it.

(Maybe I’ll even do an outfit post with the blue light side side one day…)
It’s that time of year again: sales. Lots and lots of sales. A lot of these are ones you really shouldn’t let pass you by and the chances of me purchasing something from most of these retailers is very, very high. (I can neither confirm nor deny that I’ve already pounced on at least one these deals. Possibly more.)
- Prophecy Girl, aka my favorite small geek fashion company, is currently offering 50% off your purchase of £10 or more with the code ‘BFCM18‘. I have their Itsa Kinda skirt, their Galactic Spy shirt, and several of their scarves and pins and love them all! Please check them out!
- Musterbrand probably needs no introduction at this point but you should probably take advantage of their up to 50% off Black Sale. This includes their Sith Apprentice cardigan, Vader sweater cape, and black Rey sweater. If you’re getting just one piece, my favorite is the Sith Apprentice cardigan. I’m tempted to get another except the Rey sweater in Black is staring me down and so is the Black Panther cardigan. They’re also offering 20% off your regularly priced purchase with the code ‘THANKS20’.
- Po-Zu is currently offer 40% off your entire purchase which is huge. Just use the code ‘BETHECHANGE‘ at check out through November 30th. If you’ve been waiting to get a pair of their Star Wars shoes, now is the time. I have their Falcon sneakers and Rey boots and love both.
- Her Universe is offering $12 tees, outerwear starting at $20, and 30% off everything else.
- HeroWithin has also hinted that they’ll be debuting some new pieces soon.

You may not realize it but today’s a very special week: it’s the anniversary of the launch of Star Wars: Battlefront II and if you know anything about me, it should probably be that I love Inferno Squad more than just about life itself. Around this time last year, I was impatiently waiting to get out of work so I could go home and play through Iden Versio’s story. A year later, it’s still one of my favorite stories and I’ll even be replaying it on Saturday on Twitch to mark the anniversary. Needless to say, an ‘Inferno Squad but make it work appropriate’ outfit was meant to be for today.

So here’s the fun thing about this outfit: it’s both Leia and Padmé inspired. The big giant purple sweater thing is based on a Leia outfit from The Last Jedi in a different color. When it finally got here, my initial thought was that it made me think of Padmé’s outfit she wears to meet with Palpatine at the start of Attack of the Clones especially once I remembered about the navy dress I had in my closet. Once I put it on, it started to feel a little more Leia so now I’m just rolling with it and embracing it as an homage to both women.

When I told you NYCC was very good to me on the fashion front, I wasn’t kidding. I discovered a brand new geek fashion line the very first morning called Heroes & Villains. I managed to last a few hours before doing back and buying this jacket. The best part is that it really helped take my fashion matching to the next level as I was covering the Star Wars Resistance Fireball ship set up that weekend. Even though the jacket is Leia inspired, the light blue color felt appropriate for Torra Doza. Add double buns and boom! The perfect outfit for the day.
Leia Bomber Jacket: Heroes & Villains
Rebel Alliance Ear Crawlers: Box Lunch
Khaki Pants: Express
Brown Boots: Rampage
For sizing reference, Bria is wearing a Medium in the jacket.
I want to really emphasize how special I think this Heroes & Villains brand is. This is their first collection and I couldn’t be more impressed. Their approach is more than just slapping a logo on a piece of clothing and calling it done. This first line focused on the Battle of Endor and offers a Rebel and an Imperial line. The jacket I got is inspired by Leia’s uniform that she wears beneath the poncho and the Scout Trooper jacket are the true standouts but there’s nothing I don’t appreciate about their attention to detail. One of the coolest details is how they take the symbol from the Rebel trooper helmets and incorporate it into the line along with the Rebel Starbird. Oh! And the linings on both this jacket and the purse/wallet have ewoks! How fun is that?
I honestly cannot wait to see what Heroes & Villains does next. This is definitely a brand to watch.
Also I am aware that I am incapable of parting my hair neatly in the back.
