Outfit of the Day #4

Our fourth outfit of the day is actually two outfits.  The first is a t-shirt and skirt from Her Universe.  The second is a dress, also from Her Universe, sold at Torrid stores.  Both outfits are a celebration of Star Wars fandom with an emphasis on the light saber.

Here is the first outfit:

The petticoat is not included with the skirt.  This was my own addition.  I got the petticoat at a dance supply shop online.  Buy one of your own here:

If you want to get a petticoat in black, white or red, save a little money and go to a Halloween Store and get it.  Same thing, just lower cost.

The bowler hat with ears is a find from Forever 21, which unfortunately no longer carries it.  However, I tracked down a similar one here:

Then bobby socks and a pair of Chuck Taylors and you’re done!  This is a great Con going outfit, date outfit or just everyday cosplay outfit.  As a bonus, the t-shirt glows in the dark.  Here is a more up close picture of the shirt:

Pick up these items at Her Universe.  Here is the link to the skirt:

The skirt has absolutely no stretch, so at least one size bigger than you usually do in Her Universe wear.  I am wearing a 4x.  Just remember, no one is going to check the size of your clothes.  It is just a number.  Get what fits well and is comfortable.  Don’t get all hung up on a number on a label nobody will ever see.

The sizing is pretty standard on the t-shirt.  Get whatever size you usually get in Her Universe wear.  I’m wearing a 2x.

The other version of the light saber skirt is actually a dress from Her Universe for Torrid.  I have not found a standard size version of this dress, so we plus sizes have one up for a change.  This is much less pin-up looking, so you can really 50s it up or not, depending on where you want to wear it.  The first version is with the petticoat and Chuck Taylors.  You can also pair it with saddle shoes for an extra vintage look.  It looks like this:

Here’s some up close pics of the necklace and the skirt itself:

The necklace is actually an earring that I turned into a pendant.  I’m not much for dangly earrings, so I bent the fish hook post into a loop and put it on a chain.

Now, if you want to wear this dress to work or to a more conservative function, you can pair it with some boots and lose the petticoat like I’ve done here:

I wear this look to work all the time.  It is super comfortable and the cotton is lightweight for summer as well.  Get one of these dresses here:

I get more compliments on both of these outfits, especially from the gents.  My favorite compliment was actually the day I took these pictures.  “That dress is what is happening today!”  Love that!

Happy Shopping and May the Force Be With You!

Love, Kim and Scout
