May the Fourth...Be With You!

I had a whole other outfit planned for today, when I realized, "Holy smokes, it's Star Wars Day!" You know I like to let my geek flag fly! 
I think L has a Star Wars pin around somewhere, but I didn't have time to find it, so I just stole grabbed his tie.

  • Shirt - Tommy Hilfiger, thrifted; last seen here with lots of dots in March
  • Skirt - Evan Davies, vintage 80s, thrifted; last worn here in July 2016 with purple mules (only worn once)
  • Shoes - "I Know" by Irregular Choice Star Wars collection; last seen here in February with gold, blue and cream brocade
  • Coat (below) - Lord & Taylor, thrifted 

 When my hangers get low in my closet, I eye this white collared shirt, because, snore, white collared shirt. But it serves a good function as a showcase for the occasional tie, and it layers well under things. This one is nice because it fits me perfectly.
 The pink leather skirt is so soft and buttery, although Vizzini's back claws dug a couple of divots in the front of it this morning - rotten cat! I touched them up with a pink highlighter at work, and you can't even see them. I kept trying to put my hand in the non-existent pockets.

Outerwear. It was alternately hot and sunny, then oppressive and muggy, then it rained, and now it's muggy and damp. Weird day.
 I walked to the other office without a coat and a woman hollered at me, "Happy Star Wars Day!"

The stuff:
 All my Star Wars-themed things! I adore these shoes, and waggled my feet at everyone in the office. The tie is over 20 years old and is a limited edition.

Stellar bling:
Aw, Han, Leia and Darth, one big happy family.

  • Belt - Danier Leather
  • Tie - L's, late 90s, limited edition
  • Death Star ring - Soul Flower
  • Lapis lazuli ring - Wendy Brandes
  • Earrings - Lazy Susan's

Enjoy your weekend, everyone! I have plans tomorrow night for dinner, and Saturday will be jam-packed, so I'll be back on Sunday with a big-ass wrap-up. Stay tuned!

  7. Nothing Star Wars in my wardrobe either Sheila, but I do enjoy this other life vicariously! The white shirt is a necessary evil in our wardrobes and you've given me a bit of inspiration here, so thank you.
