Style: Queen in Tatooine
by Victoria Fox
I was beyond stoked to visit the Star Wars and the Power of Costume exhibit at the St. Petersburg Museum of Fine Arts this past weekend. I needed a cute outfit for this (obviously) and as luck would have it, I had just bought the Her Universe Tatooine Sweetheart dress. I had originally planned to wear it with a thin light blue cardigan, but Florida decided it would be cold for once, so here’s my more winter-y plan B.
This was such a good buy in that the dress is a very versatile piece. It’s something that can be dressed up or dressed down and is just the right amount of subtle Star Wars. The dress’ color palette gives you a lot of pairing options. I had, as mentioned before, intended on pairing it with a light blue cardigan. With the weather changing, it was very easy to find other warmer items to pair with it.
The jacket came from Old Navy a few years ago but I’m sure they still have something similar.
The dark grey knit leggings came from Target. And yeah, there’s fleece on the inside!
The boots came from Target. A wardrobe staple for me is definitely a pair of tall black boots. They literally go with anything.
This vintage gold Salacious Crum necklace was purchased when I attended Star Wars Celebration in Orlando.
I got this guy back in the golden days of Disney’s Hollywood Studios, during Star Wars Weekends. *sigh* The great thing is, he’s a stuffed animal and a backpack! And he actually fits a ton more than you’d think.
In any event, I encourage you to buy this dress and I also heavily encourage you to visit the exhibit if you should have the chance. It was an incredible day of marveling at and sketching costumes, learning about the concepts behind some of the most beloved characters, and staring at Palpatine’s finger nails (yeah, they even had those!).
‘Til next time!
