Rebellion, Resistance, and R2D2 and BB8 are nearby too, I'm there! The local air museum (Wings Over the Rockies) held a Star Wars event this weekend and when given the chance to see some awesome Star Wars prop replicas, I take it. Knowing I'd be seeing super cool aircraft from WWII (and other periods) mean't I was actually quite torn on what to wear, my usual 1940's duds or something Star Wars themed? When I spotted this black and gold cotton at Joanns this past week the question was solved for me, I'd just have to fuse the two!
I used my usual Kimono sleeve top pattern with buttons up the back and whipped up this top Saturday night to wear to the event on Sunday! I paired the themed top with a newly acquired rhinestone brooch (I'm in love with this brooch!), the wool skirt from my black vintage suit, and my new black plastiflex 40's clutch! I wanted another black bag for this summer and ended up deciding on this large style for its truly modern leaning forties flair. I might be hunting for another plastiflex already as I enjoyed using this one so much on Sunday!
With May 4th coming up this week, I hope you all can excuse my nerdiness coming through in today's outfit post :) We even watched The Force Awakens again as a family when we got home because Star Wars is awesome. I know I'll be visiting this museum again soon on a less crowded day to get a better look at the historic aircraft without stormtroopers and many small children running about!
