Our House Brand at White Hot Room should honestly just be capes. We love capes. Give us all the capes. Thankfully, Musterbrand is out there providing. I adored their X-Wing pilot inspired cape and the Vader inspired one is equally awesome although more subdued. Subdued doesn’t mean it’s not recognizable though as I got compliments from multiple coworkers the first day I wore it. It is comfy, cozy, and stylish and really, what more could you ask for from a work wear piece?

Pencil Skirt: Michael Kors
Black Pumps: Nine West
Just like with their other products, the Vader cape is a more subtle twist on a well-known character while still being identifiable to fellow geeks. And, as is the Musterbrand trademark, the cape is very well-made and feels worth every penny of its list price. The only bad thing that I have to say about this cape actually applies to their other products but is most noticeable with the capes. My hair routinely gets caught in it which can get really frustrating at times.
Disclaimer: Musterbrand provided the Vader cape but only requested honest feedback and did not ask for a positive review in return.
How many fist pumps did I do when Her Universe announced this shirt? So. Many. This is another Her Universe piece that I totally dig. It’s long sleeve (which is new for them!), is fairly subtle for the non-initiated, and it’s representing Star Wars Rebels, my new favorite show!
Rebel Starbird Shirt: Her Universe
Black Skirt: MICHAEL Michael Kors
Galactic Leggings: Black Milk
Boots: Kenneth Cole

When it comes to speculating what characters might wear from the runways of our world, it’s well established that I like to play favorites which means it’s time to take another look at Tenel Ka, Queen Mother of Hapes and Warrior of Dathomir. This time though, we’ll be looking at both sides of the
Dathomir’s aesthetic is very much informed by their culture of warrior clans. While no one would try and claim that any of the below looks by Burberry and Michael Kors are fitting for riding rancors, they definitely capture the feel of Dathomir.
Hapes, on the other hand, doesn’t embrace their hardcore warrior or snake skin side quite that much. Both this Versace and Zuhair Murad definitely give off a Hapan vibe with the fabric of the Zuhair Murad being something that would likely appeal to Tenel Ka.
While I recognize that this Versace isn’t something that Tenel Ka would jump at to wear, there are elements to it that I think would definitely fit with the Hapan look combined with Tenel Ka’s own preferences. In particular, I’m referring to the arm pieces and the hood and the skirt itself definitely reads Hapan.
For a bonus round, have this Valentino dress which I could see Tenel Ka wearing in a more casual Hapan setting that would still restrict her from dressing more Dathomiri.

Let’s just clap this one out. Who would’ve thought Quicksilver, 70’s style horrorshow that he is in X-Men: Days of Future Past, would bring us so much unparalleled delight — so you know what, we’re going to go to there. With his look firmly rooted in trash teen boy, we pick it up a notch to avant-garde activewear and trendy urban running gear, but without losing the fresh kicks of youth.
