Vintage T Shirt Tuesday: Star Wars

It’s almost Star Wars Day (May the 4th), so it seems appropriate to show & tell my vintage Star Wars T shirt for this edition of Vintage T Shirt Tuesday, eh?

I got this T shirt in my super-rad haul from Static Vintage in San Fransisco when I went last year. Remarkably, this is the only Star Wars shirt I’ve ever had in my own closet. I wear it rarely so it is still in excellent condition, but when I do there are always lots of comments on it from both my kids (Usually something like “Mom! Mom! YOU’VE GOT A STAR WARS SHIRT ON!!! I LOVE STAR WARS!!!”) and grown-ups alike.

There are so many great Star Wars T shirts out there (I have a life goal to someday have a Revenge of the Jedi T shirt) but this is one that I remember most from back in the day, and I’m happy to have one in my personal collection.

The Shirt: Original Star Wars Episode IV (C3PO and R2D2)

The Tag: generic 100% cotton tag from the late 70s

Estimated Value: $30

Celebrating Mother’s Day

I celebrated Mother's Day a little early with my mom and grandma. They each got to choose a gorgeous watch from Obaku and they both tolerated me taking a few photos of them. This was a few weeks back at my mom's and I photographed her in her element: out back with the horses. Indy is her little baby! To be honest, we didn't have the best relationship growing up and once I moved on to college, it became a lot easier. I was so resentful and could only focus on the past, the things I couldn't change. Once I moved away, I felt more in control of my own life and could make my own decisions, things that made me happier and allowed my mom and I to have a better relationship. Now, she's pretty much the only person I want to travel with and I call her at least once a day to bug her. We're heading to Nashville in a few weeks to be old ladies together like visiting the zoo on a non-weekend day to avoid children, go to bed by 9 p.m., be up by 6 p.m. and eat all the food.

My grandma, Cecilia, is such a beautiful and strong woman. She and my grandpa visited a couple weeks ago and surprised her with an Obaku watch that she just loved.  Don't let her soft look fool you. My grandma is someone you just don't fuck with. I respect her tenacity, independence and most importantly, her constant support whether I was venturing off to MSU as a first-generation college student or making career mistakes--she's there for me no matter what.

Thank you Obaku for offering a watch to my mom and grandma, they love them!
