Dress Like A Sith Lord With These Post Black Friday Deals
Hi, I'm Rosie, and this Black Friday I discovered that my new goal is to dress like a Sith Lord. Story time: like millions of other Americans who insist on braving the crowds and torturing retail workers in exchange for half off a set of bath towels — but feeling really guilty all the while — I found myself stumbling around my local mall on Black Friday in a haze of coffee and too-little sleep. Sometime between 6 a.m. and 8 a.m. I must have entered an altered state of reality, because that is the only explanation as to how I, cheapskate extraordinaire, dropped more than $20 on a trendy piece without days of careful consideration and self flagellation. Just take a look at the piece. What is it? A cloak? A vest? A blazer? Not even the designer seems to know, but there is one thing I am sure of: it would totally suit a Sith Lord were they ever to set foot on the red carpet.
With excitement for the newest Star Wars installment sure to ramp up to a fever pitch as the release date draws near (am I the only one who feels everything is right with the world when tents start popping up outside the theater in anticipation of a sci-fi film?), designers and makeup brands have already lept on the back of the behemoth that is the Star Wars advertising machine. While franchise-themed merchandise is totally cool, I think there's a thrill to paying homage to your favorite franchise in more conservative environments — such as at the office or for a class presentation — with fashion. So, in that vein, I have uncovered some great online deals on Sith Lord worthy wardrobe additions that you can wear while pitching your plan for galactic domination. Because channeling Vader at a board meeting has its perks.
