WIW 4/9: Picture Perfect Day 2--Star Wars (3 ways)

The first outfit is what I planned for the challenge and actually wore out today to take DD to school and run some errands. I didn't have a galaxy print shirt or dress (bummer) so I went with this agate dress, which reminds me of the clouds and water on a planet surface, and the draping is similar to the flowy costumes they wear. The white jeans and denim jacket combined with and silver purse and sneakers are similar colors to Leia's outfit, and I had a little water gun blaster and my necklace which reminds me of the Death Star. This denim jacket with dress as tunic over jeans and sneakers was a very comfortable MOTG FFBO, I'll have to remember this formula!

The funny thing is I came back home and was talking to DH and he said he was sending back our Netflix DVDs. I asked if we could rent Metropolis and Vertigo. He was surprised and said, "Why are you interested in those films? Does this have something to do with fashion?" I told him about our movie poster challenge and said, "This is my Star Wars outfit". He asked if I had posted my pics already and then said it didn't look Star Wars enough and that I should wear a white sweater or top and that he would lend me his Nerf gun. So, DH made me change! Hilarious that DH got into the action--he is a bit of a Star Wars geek. I didn't have a white tunic or drapey sweater, so the beige turtleneck or the cream sweater were the next best options. Just for kicks I tried to make my hair into Princess Leia cinnamon buns, but I am awful at styling hair, so they look more like pretzels. LOL!

Which of these three outfits do you like best, and which looks the most "Star Wars"?
1-4. American Eagle white denim jacket
Michael Michael Kors agate dress
Kut Diana white skinny jeans
Skechers grey wedge sneakers
Michael Kors pewter studded satchel
Alexis Bittar orange leopard pendant
5. INC beige turtleneck and Michael Kors snakeskin belt and gunmetal "starry sky" stretch bracelet
6. Gap ivory dolman sweater
7-8. Princess Leia/Star Wars inspiration

    Cinnamon buns, ROTFL! I love it. Actually, now I can see what you might look like in a bob. I love that hubby is getting involved with the challenge. (This might be good for a round of shopping, you never know....)

    I actually like your version best, with the draped dress, but don't tell him I said that. You look like a beautiful, fashionable MOTG. Love the MK bag too, BTW.

    #5 looks the most star wars to me.  Kudos to DH!

    The secret to Leia buns is to part your hair in the center and make two braids, ending each one with a rubber band.  Then roll the braids into a bun and hold in place with large hairpins.

    HA!  You roped in DH!  I love the 5 outfit for the purity of the challenge, but the first outfit is more you...  I don't know f slippery Asian hair like ours will stay in a cinnamon bun?
