Spoiler-free Ahsoka Book Review

Star Wars: Ahsoka by E. K. Johnston hit bookstores around the nation on October 11, 2016, and completely blew my mind. I wanted to share my excitement about this book in a way that didn't spoil the story if you haven't pick it up yet. If you haven't read the book and want to know why you should, please check out my spoiler-free review below. If you have read Ahsoka, I would love to hear your thoughts about it. Leave a comment in the comment section towards the end of this post and let me know if you enjoyed it.

Rogue One Apparel from Design By Humans

Happy Rogue Friday! Multiple retailers released their new merchandise bright and early this morning for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which debuts in theaters on December 16, 2016. One of my favorite apparel brands, Design By Humans, unveiled their line of Rogue One shirts at midnight and I must say they look incredible!

This collection features dozens of new shirts spotlighting all of the new characters from Rogue One including some of my personal favorites- Jyn Erso, K-2SO, Captain Cassian Andor, and Orson Krennic. You can proudly wear your heart (or alliance) on your sleeve by choosing a Rebellion tee or one featuring dark side characters like the elite Deathtroopers.

Not only do these shirts look amazing with their subtle designs and earthy hues, but they are made to last. I have several tops from Design By Humans and they've lasted many trips through the washer and dryer while still looking brand new. Don't miss out on these officially licensed apparel items and take advantage of their free shipping offer for orders over $75.

What I Wore: September 24

As all Saturdays should be spent, I treated myself to a day of shopping and indulging in desserts with some friends. Not only did I find some awesome Star Wars collectibles along the way, but I also found a way to subtly incorporate Star Wars into my casual outfit. I paired a Darth Vader burnout T-shirt with a black maxi skirt and my favorite Imperial logo earrings. Of course I needed a way to carry around my vintage action figure scores, so my Stormtrooper sugar skull tote bag came in handy.

Outfit Details

Shirt and sandals from Target

Skirt from Wet Seal

Sunglasses from Walmart

Tote bag from Loungefly

Necklace from Ann Taylor

How do you incorporate Star Wars into your every day outfits?

In episode 15 of Galactic Fashion, I had the pleasure of chatting with Johnamarie Macias and Teresa Delgado about the latest Star Wars fashions and how I became a fangirl.

I also had the chance to sit down and talk with James Burns of the Star Wars Collectors Cast to go over the latest Rogue One products and discuss the new merchandise.
