sw purses

If you thought you had seen all the Star Wars purses you might want or need, I have three more that may just make it onto your holiday wish lists.

These three different faux leather Star Wars purses each have their own distinctive styles and design. There’s a Dia De Los Muertos style Stormtrooper, a retro tattoo style, and a black and white grid style that I’m definitely partial to.

If you’re planning to get Dad a tie this holiday, hold up. Binary Winter has designs that are interesting, a little bit nerdy, and artistic at the same time.

The designs are created and illustrated by Cody and Shea, who silk screen every item by hand and who are committed to keeping it vegan and eco-friendly.

You also don’t pay a lot for that extra homemade love. The ties run $24 and are just some of the things you can find at their Etsy shop.

Pod

New York School of Visual Arts MFA student Eden Lew wants to turn you into a pod person. She’s designed a fabric pod called the Nutshell which wraps the top half of your body to provide privacy and a break from the outside world (naps!). It all came about when a professor tasked her with redesigning the first piece of trash she threw out. She told BuzzFeed:

“I threw out a sandwich wrapper and began to think about topics related to food, lunch and time. A fellow classmate introduced me to the Slow Food movement, which I started to interpret a little differently. As a student I’m always looking for the quickest meal to avoid stopping my workflow. I decided that if I’m going to spend five minutes or less eating a lunch, then I might as well use that five minutes to take a mental break. Thus the Nutshell was created to block out distractions and to focus on eating and thinking.”

Her fellow classmates have been very receptive to the idea, even asking for a version that would help block out smells when someone wants to eat a “fragrant” lunch during class. Lew is also expanding on the concept by proposing well-being workshops for companies, all in the name of making us happier and more relaxed. You can’t buy a Nutshell yet, but chances are good you’ll be able to buy one and hide from your coworkers in the near future.

The weather may be getting cooler, but there’s no law against layering so you can still wear this Marvel Collage Spaghetti Strap Dress.

Lots of your favorite Marvel heroes in a cool retro style? I dig it for sure.

billionaire playgirl

When people joke about there being a Tumblr for absolutely everything, they’re not kidding. There’s even one that tells you what outfits to wear for ridiculously specific occasions. What to Wear When… is run by Rave Sashayed, and the posts offer helpful advice for situations such as: WHAT TO WEAR WHEN: You Are An Evil Queen Donning the Full Regalia, WHAT TO WEAR WHEN: You Are A Billionaire Playgirl Philanthropist Using Your Fortune to Fight Crime (pictured above), and WHAT TO WEAR WHEN: Slinking Into a P.I.’s Office After-Hours to Tearfully Beg Him for Help Finding Your Husband’s Killer.

Yeah, it’s that awesome. As intriguing as the titles are, the explanation of the items included in the outfit are even better. You’ll want to set aside a few minutes to browse this Tumblr’s archives.

cosplay couture 1

Courtney Coulson and Luke Milton are taking costume photography to a new level. Their Cosplay Couture project merges cosplay and fashion photography with stunning results. They focus more on the “couture construction technique” rather than one hundred percent accuracy, and the effort means they’ve come up with designs that are both creative and impressive.

They’ve tackled costumes from comic books, shows such as Doctor Who, and movies like The Lone Ranger. They offer insight on the costume and the shoot with each of their posts, and I highly recommend following them on Tumblr.

selfie hat

If you thought the selfie hairbrush we posted the other day was silly, wait till you get a load of this Selfie-Hat by Acer UK and fashion designer Christian Cowan-Sanluis for London Fashion Week.

The Selfie-Hat spins 360 degrees to let you find you “best angle” and has an integrated Acer Iconia A-1 840 tablet. Acer explains:

“Whilst slowly moving the screen from left to right, not only does the selfie sombrero help the user finding their best angle, but also how to understand lighting, how various expressions can change your face and ultimately create the perfect social media moment”.

“Users can access any apps such as Facebook or Instagram whilst wearing the hat – being on social media never looked so glamorous,” Acer added.

Um…yeah…I got nothing.

Believe it or not, this hat can actually be purchased by appointment. Interested parties can contact “Hans” at the Acer press office for more info.

Rodarte debuted its Fall/Winter line back in February and it featured high fashion clothing adorned with Star Wars images that everyone loved. Now they’ve done an official photo shoot out at Skywalker Ranch with some of the characters in attendance. Who knew Threepio could strike a pose?

One of the things I love best about fashion these days is just how many companies have geek couture. Once upon a time, if you wanted to show your love for Star Wars, you had the option of a t-shirt or halloween costume, but it wasn’t the sort of thing you could wear if you wanted to dress up a bit.

Luckily, companies like We Love Fine are committed to making fashionable geekwear, and now they’ve teamed up with Goldie to create a Star Wars boutique collection.

My personal favorites are the Princess Leia Dress (complete with a hair buns hoodie), a very chic Empire Strikes Back skirt, and the Dark Side Glamour dress, but they have other great styles as well in sizes small to extra large.
