Core Worlds Couture: Star Wars Nail Wraps Review

Core Worlds Couture With Jay Krebs

Greetings, Core Worlders!

This week in Core Worlds Couture, I’ll be reviewing the latest themed offerings from Jamberry Nails, Star Wars: The Last Jedi Nail Wraps collection.

Nail wraps are basically like stickers for your nails, and give the wearer a ready-manicure without having to go to the salon. Jamberry has been known for their wide array of themes and styles, and it is very exciting to see so many Star Wars designs come available!

Core Worlds Couture: “Prophecy Girl” Shirt Review

Core Worlds Couture With Jay Krebs

This edition of Core Worlds Couture will focus on a blouse from Prophecy Girl – an independent ladies’ fashion company from the UK, who specializes in “top-notch” items “with a geeky edge!” The company was founded by Kristy Hannam, a graphic designer who wanted to break out and design stylish geeky clothing that SHE would want to wear! Everything is constructed in Britain, and the company claims to have tested and sampled everything before shipping out to its consumers (see website and Kristy’s bio for more details).

Core Worlds Couture: Her Universe/ThinkGeek Business Casual Collection Review

Core Worlds Couture with Jay Krebs

After a long hiatus, its time to get back into the swing of things with a new edition of Core Worlds Couture! Here you will find Star Wars Fashion and product reviews, as well as crafty tutorials and ideas from a “mature point of view!”

Today, I’ll be reviewing two pieces from Ashley Eckstein’s Her Universe Star Wars business-casual collection. The collection was revealed at San Diego Comic-Con in July, 2017, and is found for purchase on the ThinkGeek website. There are several pieces in the collection, which you can check out here, but the focus today will be on two blouses I recently added to my wardrobe: “Star Wars Symbols Collared Tank Tunic,” and “Star Wars Ships Ladies’ Blouse.

As a teacher, I was really excited to see this line become available. I am proud to be Rogue 7 at Star Wars in the Classroom! I currently have several items from Her Universe that I do wear in my classroom, but these definitely have a leveled-up, polished look to them. Because both of these items are similar in fabric and overall construction, I have organized the review to reflect their similarities, while also shedding some light on each one individually. Let’s take a look at their overall descriptions.

Fellow fangirls were posting pictures and Periscope videos of the nail wraps they got at the Con. I’ve never tried nail wraps before, so I figured I would give it a shot!

Welcome to the first edition of Core Worlds Couture, a blog dedicated to the fashion and accessory finds from my corner of the galaxy! I am an avid fan of geek fashion, and with approximately 50% of my entire wardrobe revolving around my various fandoms, it just seemed like a logical step to talk about my finds here on Coffee With Kenobi, and give some personal insight to these items. I am a Family and Consumer Sciences high school teacher with 23 years’ experience, and one of the areas I instruct is fashion design and clothing construction. Stick with me, and you’ll never know what you may find here: clothing, jewelry, shoes, accessories…whatever happens to make the jump from retail to my collection!
