When Disneyland announced that they were renovating Star Tours a few years ago, I knew from that point on that Star Tours was going to be one of my new favorite rides at the park. Even though I can’t ride it over and over like I would like to due to my motion sickness, I’ve still been able to ride it enough to experience all of my favorite Star Wars destinations. I nabbed this shirt shortly after the ride opened and although I love the art and design of the shirt, it is definitely one of my more challenging geeky shirts to wear as it looks more like a “souvenir/vacation” shirt than something I could wear out. However, instead of only wearing this at Disneyland or on weekends, I took it upon myself to try to dress this one up a little. Adding this gold collar necklace is not only a great accessory, but can easily make any T-shirt a little more dressy. And with a skirt and some heels, this easily goes from casual weekend wear to a fun night out!
Summer always goes by way too fast. Luckily, living in the warmer part of the Bay Area allows me to wear tanks and skirts even up till October sometimes! Brandy Melville may be every teeny bopper’s dream store, but I’m a fan due to it’s ’90s-meets-modern-day style. I’m especially a fan of their graphic tops, skirts, and basic tees that are super soft and comfy. You might say this moon phase tank totally has me “phasing” out of summer. :D
Even when I’m not dressed up as Lady Vader, sometimes I still feel like I’m channeling my inner Vader. I actually wore this outfit the other day to work and someone commented that my skirt looked like a cape. That may sound a little strange, but it actually felt like the perfect compliment considering Vader’s cape is a big part of his dark and looming presence. Even though this skirt is far from terrifying, maybe it’s enough to bring you to the dark side? :D
With fall just around the corner, it’s about time to pull out some transitional pieces of clothing. By “transitional”, I’m talking about pieces of clothing that can be worn in between seasons. For example, I love dresses like this one where you could wear them with sandals in the summer and tights and boots in the winter. Plus they are not only comfortable, but super easy to accessorize. Today I’m wearing my Millennium Falcon “potato chip” necklace made by my favorite laser cut jewelry makers, Unpossible Cuts. Last time I wore it, everyone thought it was a potato chip (at least in this photo). I guess I’ve been mistaken for a space slug! Happy Friday and have an awesome long weekend!
I must still have armor on the mind because today’s skirt definitely has an “armor” feel to it. I’m loving these gold and silver intricate beads on this skirt that make it way more metallic looking than it really is. Paired with one of my favorite shirts that combines Star Wars and a classic arcade game, it’s just a win-win situation. Even though this is a men’s shirt, tucking it in and rolling up the sleeves a tad bit really makes a difference to the fit, don’t you think?
If you’ve ever watched Cowboy Bebop, then you were probably thinking what I was thinking when I saw this shirt. “3, 2, 1, LET’S JAM!” and then followed by Yoko Kanno’s popular theme song for Cowboy Bebop. Although I don’t watch too much anime anymore, Cowboy Bebop still remains one of my all time favorites. Tee Fury was kind enough to send me one of their shirts and I didn’t even have to think twice before requesting this one. And even though they do carry girl versions of the shirt designs, I actually opted for a men’s shirt so that I could do a little DIY and transform it into a muscle tank. Keep reading to see how I transformed this men’s tee into a cute tank!
Like many, I loved the Guardians of the Galaxy movie. And I knew it was love when I heard “I’m Not in Love” start playing in the first few minutes. GOTG incorporated everything I enjoyed in a movie – the ’80s, an awesome soundtrack, great characters, and a quirky sense of humor. The moment the movie ended, I was already itching to make some sort of fan art. I just didn’t know what – until I came across one of Funko’s toy posts where they showed this custom Baby Groot! I was so inspired to make my own version of Baby Groot and here’s what I came up with.
