Fashion Alert- The Disney Store

I was at The Disney Store yesterday and they have Star Wars and Marvel t-shirts in ladies’ sizes up to 2XL!  They have a variety of styles, a few are pictured here:

all shirts

Not one mention of a superhero saving you or a superhero husband or boyfriend in the bunch either, which is refreshing.  I snagged a couple of these.  I have been looking for a ladies Cap Shield t-shirt for basically forever.  I’m wearing a 2XL.  It is fitted, but not overly tight.  The sleeves are just right and don’t ride up.  I love the neckline that is lower and bears no resemblance to a guy’s shirt.  This is a ladies t-shirt and looks it.  I do wish it were a little longer for taller ladies and if you want to wear it with leggings, but hey, ladies nerd shirts that are sized for all of us!  I’ll take it.  Here’s how I styled mine today:

I wore my brown leather jacket because as you all know, Cap is never without his brown leather jacket!  Jacket is from Lane Bryant.

Here is the link to the shirt:

I paired this with skinny jeans from the Rebel Wilson collection for Torrid.  Here are close-ups of my accessories:
