I Critique The Her Universe “’50s Inspired” Line

August 22, 2017

Sold at conventions, on HU’s website, and on Box Lunch, the new midcentury-inspired line of cardigans, dresses, and skirts focus on different planets from the Star Wars lexicon. Strangely enough, there’s a broader planet-inspired line that overlaps this one with more contemporary or ‘70s inspired styles.

I am only going to focus on what I bought: the Naboo cardigan ($44.92), the Naboo skirt ($37.42), the Endor dress ($44.92), and the “SW” initial cardigan ($33.67). The other items in the line weren’t age appropriate or fit in with my lifestyle.

I made the mistake of buying the Endor dress at SDCC without trying it on. Normally I’m a small in HU sizes so I just assumed this would fit just fine. I took it home and while the skirt part fit okay, the bodice and waistband were really small and I couldn’t zip up the dress all of the way. Unfortunately they did not permit exchanges at the con; had I just bought it on the website or from Box Lunch, I could’ve gotten an exchange or refund. Caveat emptor the next time you go to a con! It’s too bad because otherwise the dress is really cute. I liked the black and lavender trim color scheme and the skirt print has adorable drawings of Ewoks and trees. If you want to buy this dress and you’re bigger than an A-cup, go up at least one size.

The good news is that the Naboo cardigan and skirt fit, also purchased at the con, fit. The former is a pretty peach color with the royal crest printed all over it and embroidered on the left chest, with faux pearl buttons. It’s nice enough to wear to work or to dress up any outfit. It fits true to size though the style is slightly cropped. The skirt is decorated with drawings of Naboo’s famous “sites,” including Theed and Varykino, plus there’s a drawing of Anakin and Padme on their picnic date. It’s a more subtle style and it is a mid-length skirt, making it appropriate for work. Plus it’s got pockets! The only issue is that there’s no elastic on the waistband. If you’ve bought similar skirts from ModCloth, this fits about the same way. If you have a wider waist, then go up a size. This is a great piece for fangirls of all ages. Since I’m a huge A/P shipper I call it the greatest skirt of all time!

Finally, I bought the SW cropped cardigan from Box Lunch. It might seem pretty plain (it’s designed to go with an AT-AT poodle skirt that’s cute, but costume-y) but it’s a subtle way to show your fandom. This one fits true to size.
