Her Universe's Must Have Monday Deal: Studio Ghibli

Fandom fashion brand Her Universe continues to carry some of the most interesting licenses for their clothing and accessory lines.  Champions of the social media sales game, the folks at HU posted their newest set of "Monday Must Haves", which just happen to be from their Studio Ghibli line.

Fans of the classic animated feature films Spirited Away, My Neighbor Totoro, Howl's Moving Castle, and Kiki's Delivery Service will instantly recognize the designs featured in today's deals:

The Howl's Moving Castle Calcifer vinette dress:

Even if a witch were to curse you with old age, you'd look so amazing in this dress, no one would notice. This black dress features a sweetheart neckline and keyhole opening under a feather detailed lace reminiscent of Howl's magical transformations. The empire waist gives way to a lace skirt featuring Calcifer detailing on the border hem. You'll be hot enough to make someone's bacon burn!

The My Neighbor Totoro umbrella shirt:

This purple tee is guaranteed to make you feel like a kid again. It features Satsuki and Mei in flight with Totoro! Has there ever been a T-shirt so magical?

"May your bacon burn" Calcifer shirt:

After Sophie puts a pan on top of Calcifer, he curses her bacon. A silly thing to curse, if you ask us – poor bacon didn't do anything wrong! Place the same curse on those who upset you by wearing this black tee from Howl's Moving Castle with Calcifer on front.

This gorgeous Totoro green maxi dress:

This dark green floral dress is a dream…just like the garden in My Neighbor Totoro. This maxi dress features cold-shoulder sleeves, side slits, and an allover print of the spirit of the forest and his friends. It's perfect for a long afternoon by the lake.

This adorable Totoro coat (also available in plus size!):

Totoro may be able to get by taking shelter underneath a leaf, but the rest of us need a little bit more than that. This grey coat captures the magic of the spirit of the forest, along with his adorableness to keep you warm. The button front closure coat features fluffy white collar and cuff details, reminiscent of Totoro's fluffy belly. The sleeves have an embroidered Totoro detail. It's perfect for those long evenings waiting for the Catbus.

You can check out the rest of the Studio Ghibli line on the official Her Universe website! What's your favorite piece from this collection? We can't wait to see what designs they come up with next.
