May the Fourth Be With You

Vintage Inspired by Jackie Atomic Jax Two Piece Set in Star Wars Empire Strikes Back Print

Happy Star Wars Day!  I've been waiting for this exact date to show off this custom two-piece commission from my favorite seamstress/business owner, Vintage Inspired by Jackie.  While I have a bunch of Jackie's creations in my closet, this is by far my favorite outfit.  We all know The Empire Strikes Back is the best episode so I enjoy nothing more than incorporating it into my wardrobe.  Since I chose a two piece for this vintage bed sheet print, I get so much wear from it.  The styling options are infinite!

Made from vintage cotton bed sheets, Jackie crafted this 1950's style blouse and matching swing skirt.  The blouse features a button down detail, pointed collar, generous sleeves, and an exposed front pocket.  The skirt is full and gathered with a side zip and top button closure.  She initially crafted this design a few years ago for another client with Mario Bros. fabric, but I begged her to bring it back for my Star Wars set.  As always, she was happy to oblige! The top is long enough to wear tucked in, but I decided to tie it into a crop due to the warmer weather.  I also like to break up the set and wear the top with jeans or the skirt with a solid top, but I truly love these pieces together.  I know The Last Jedi isn't coming out until the end of the year, but I have a feeling this is going to be my outfit for opening night!

Today my friends, Bianca, and I are celebrating Star Wars Day at Disneyland.  We're going to meet with Darth Vader, Chewbacca, and Boba Fett (my favorite) and visit our favorite attraction: Star Tours.  If you'd like to keep up on our galactic adventures, make sure to follow my Instagram to a peek into our fun-filled day!

May the fourth be with you!
