As a fan of Black Milk’s entire line of Star Wars items, I’ve had this Death Star dress for a while now. And I’m not sure about you, but I’ve always found it a little challenging when it comes to how to wear something so eye-catching outside of the convention halls and into the “normal” public. With the way the dresses are shown on the Black Milk site, it’s hard to get ideas on what to wear with them. Well, I took that as a challenge and here’s what I came up with. What do you wear with your BM dresses? Comment below and share your favorite things to wear with BM stuff!
I love a good comfy sweater and it only seemed fitting that this sweater, appropriately with style name “TGIF”, be worn in today’s post. Free People is known for their laid back boho style and this oversized cardigan makes me feel like I’m being wrapped in a blanket all day. And with it’s hi-lo style (short front, long back), it’s not only modern, but also effortless. To keep the look just as casual as the sweater, I paired it with my vintage art Star Wars tank, some faded skinnies, and Victorian inspired lace up boots. Hopefully with this kind of outfit, you’ll look like you just rolled out of bed on a Friday looking casual, but stylish! Happy Friday, everyone!
With season 3 of Sherlock ending just as quickly as it started, I definitely had Sherlock on the mind when I bought these shorts. Trouser style shorts can get pretty boring after a while so I love that these are not only patterned, but also textured in a nice velvety fabric. And as different as Sherlock and Watson can be, I decided to experiment with a little mixing and matching of patterns over blacks and whites. Not exactly “elementary” if you ask me, but still fun to wear!
If you’ve ever looked out your window and thought it was too cold to wear a dress in the winter, this dress may change your mind. This particular one from Banana Republic is one of their “fit and flare” dresses – looks flattering on almost everyone, has a good amount of stretch, and is incredibly warm due to it’s thick heavy duty (but not bulky) material. And even if you don’t get this one, check out my shopping links for more options!
A lot of geeky shirts can be loud, busy, and pretty attention getting. Don’t get me wrong, I love those crazy comic exclamations, characters, and fun prints. And as geeks, we do like to make a statement in our T-shirts! But sometimes it’s great to have a “casual” version of your favorite superhero shirt such as this faded Batman one. This particular one could easily be that favorite 15 year old T-shirt that has been washed so much that it’s about to fall apart. Plus the subtle black and white graphic will easily keep your identity a secret, right? ;)
There are some days where it barely feels like winter here. Most of my winter holiday was spent in LA where it was an unbelievable 75 degrees! And on those days, it’s fairly easy to take something I might wear in the summer (like this hi-lo skirt), add some tights, boots, and a jacket – and voila! Ready for winter wear! What warm weather pieces do you like to re-use for winter?
Winter can be cold and harsh and easily turn into a sea of black coats and grey sweaters. Though you may be in the mood to pull on that dark and drab sweater, wearing something bright and unexpected in the winter can really brighten those cold and gloomy days. Wishing you a warm and bright weekend!
