Sleepless in Wherever

As a child I always thought it would be a very romantic thing to be unable to sleep, to have to get up for a midnight snack, or even risk an all-nighter! Alas here I sit, much too early in the morning without a wink of sleep. The feeling isn't as captivating as I have imagined it to be. Mostly it is simply irritating. Yet what am I supposed to do? My mind refuses to shut down. My body cannot relax. AND I NEED SLEEP!!!!

My solution so far? Listen to the same song on repeat, and work on a project until my eyes can no longer find the strength to stay apart.

My project for tonight? I am going to go through all of Padme/Queen Amidala's dresses and choose my favorites!

So we all know this dress. It is the quintessential Queen Amidala outfit. The unfortunate part is that for the rest of the movie it feels like the makers are trying to top this dress... and they do not succeed.

Like, what is THIS?? I mean really.
(Yes, I know these were inspired by actual outfits, but still!)

This dress I am OK with, and I'm not sure why... there is no good argument in favor of this dress...
I do really like the orange handmaiden dresses that fade to yellow!!!!

This dress is wonderfully fabulous, and feminine! It looks fantastic from the back and side, but I feel like they got lazy in the front with the non-frilly part. Which is disappointing.

What is going on here??? Let's take a closer look at the head dress...


(let us not forget that the first dress has an open back :0 !!!!)

Originally I didn't like the wedding dress. That was before I was able to appreciate the beauty of antique style. I now love it.

The only redeeming thing about this dress is the beautiful front panel...

Dominatrix much?? I MEAN COME ON GUYS!!!!

I love this. The hair, the dress lines... It is very suited to her job, and the professionalism that comes with being a Senator, as well as the joy of looking fabulous!

Some lovely nightgowns for the pretty little housewife :) She may not be happy, but at least she has wonderful clothes!!!!

Ok, so maybe I showed some of my least favorites as well! I think this is to be expected when going through Padme Amidala Skywaker's closet!

It's bed time for me.

P.S. I really like this picture:


  1. You are SUCH a NERD!!
    Love you, Sister!

  2. HEY! I AM NOT!
    ...well maybe a little...
    Triva Fact: This sleepless night was the night before I left.

  3. Okay, so I got a gmail account just so I could comment on your blog. Mostly, in fact so that I could comment on this post. Totally agree that they spent the rest of the movie (perhaps even the rest of the prequels) trying to top the throne room dress...and never succeed.


    Massive trivia question. Who is wearing the dress that is third from the top? (the one that you are okay with but not sure why.)

    Before you google it let me tell you and it will explain the reason you like the dress.

    It is none other than Keira Knightley, who was cast in the role as Sabe because of her striking resemblance to Natalie Portman. (you can see N.Portman in the background wearing one of the cool handmaiden dresses that fade yellow to orange.)

  4. HA!
    I did know that brother!!!!
    But 1. she looks like Natalie Portman? and 2. is that the only reason I like that dress? because K.K. is wearing it?
    Good to know.
