The Random Writings of Rachel: Star Wars Fashion at the Grocery Store

Star Wars Fashion at the Grocery Store




What's the best article of clothing you've ever purchased at a supermarket? I once had a really cool pair of red plaid ballet flats from Wal-Mart...and I got a nice black sequined long-sleeved shirt from the children's section of Wal-Mart for $3 back in the days when I was required to wear all-black outfits every day to beauty school.

From Meijer, I got the black tulle skirt I have worn frequently for years--coincidentally, it was also originally purposed so that I could have appropriate clothes to wear to beauty school...but this skirt has been awesome and I'm so glad I found it at my local supermarket.

My best grocery store find to date, however, might just be this Star Wars t-shirt from our local Tesco. It was love at first sight. Tesco usually doesn't tend to carry shirts in a size that will actually fit me, but this one fits very comfortably...but let's be real, it's not the fit that makes it awesome, it's the ten classic Star Wars characters. I'm a wrong generation for Star Wars--the originals came out when my parents were just kids, but I grew up loving Han Solo's snarky comments and R2-D2's adorable beeping. I really enjoyed the Star Wars reboots that came out last December, not least because it involved original characters so heavily.

I've written before about my general reluctance towards graphic tees in general, but I do have exceptions for graphic tees I feel a strong connection to, and this Star Wars one was pretty much perfect. If you see that post, you'll note that I prefer to wear black graphic tees anyways, so the color was in this shirt's favor to begin with. So, tell me about your favorite grocery store fashion find!

  2. I always tell my husband that you can find great things at really unexpected places. Your post just proves that! I am sure it will last long too...

  3. I found a great dress at Loblaws in their Joe Fresh Dept. I kind of hate that they have clothes there as I'm often tempted when shopping for groceries.

    This tee is so you! I think my husband might like it Ha!

  6. I love that shirt! (and the scarf you paired with it, which is awesome) I don't think I've ever purchased clothes from a grocery store/supermarket, at least that I can remember. I've never really thought about hunting around in a grocery store for cool clothes!

  11. I love this because I can totally resonate! I've found the loveliest of finds at grocery stores haha--1$ statement necklace from Walmart, a $2 scarf from Kroger (local midwest store), a $5 sweater with a faux collar. This shirt is too cute, and I love how you styled the edgy print with a polkadot scarf!

    Also, had to catch up on your latest posts, and first, I'm so impressed by how you and Angel manage your finances. To be debt-free is really a big deal today, especially for people in their twenties. I admire the less-is-more and resourceful attitudes you hold.

    And huge congrats to Angel on his half marathon time! He's tearing up the roads with his speed. Also, I'm so mesmerized by the lanterns a couple posts ago--it's been on my bucket list to see Taiwan's sky lantern festival.

    Can't wait to hear about more of your adventures!

  12. This shirt is perfection. I love graphic tees, but only when they are special to me (I have a similar Star Wars shirt from Target!). The best grocery store fashion find for me are the headbands that I wear every day because I hate having my hair in my face. I found them at the commissary on base and they are so comfortable. Headbands are usually too big on me, but these fit perfectly. They are not the most fashionable headbands but they work and I love them.

  13. My 4-year-old is also a sucker for R2-D2. We recently introduced the kids to Star Wars and you should've heard the drama every time R2 fell over or appeared to get hurt. He's a droid, he's fine!
