Flashback Dream Dates

DREAM DATE_edited-1

We all have ‘crush lists’ comprised of -ultimate- dream dudes who live in a happy fantasy land (AKA a compartment in our minds). Residents? Gentlemen like Adam Levine and Ryan Gosling. Activities?

One glaring requirement that I am totally missing is a deep love and understanding of the epic film franchise Star Wars. Although I’ve seen the films in the past, and can say I enjoyed them, I am not as well-versed in the culture that surrounds the films as I could be. However, after seeing Star Wars-inspired gowns walk Rodarte’s runway during New York Fashion Week, I knew the time had come to explore this not so far away galaxy. read more…
