Ballet Night Slytherin

Standard

Continuing on with this classy night out series. Not gonna lie, all of these outfits will pretty much have the same general style. The fuller A-line skirt with the tighter and smaller shirt work so well together to create that ballerina effect. This velour top is particularly reminiscent of dancers’ leotards. Perfect way to bring the looks from the stage into your street style!

The silver jewelry matches the nail polish, but not in a totally obvious way. I added in a darker lip, which seemed very Slytherin to me. I don’t wear lipstick often myself, but I think I would feel very glam in this color. Hope you like it, and get excited for the second half of the series!

Ballet Night Ravenclaw

Standard
Hello lovelies! After the last series I figured it was time for a change, so we are going fancy this time. Living in NYC I’ve been feeling like the whole world is at my fingertips. Lately I’ve been dreaming about dressing up and going to the Philharmonic, or the opera, or even the ballet. Thus, this next series: A night at the ballet! These outfits are inspired by the beautiful ballet costumes, including the gorgeous, shiny tutus. I absolutely love this skirt. I can’t decide if it’s bronze or rose gold, but that’s really why I like it. Add in some dark blue items and you have yourself a super classy Ravenclaw outfit. Hope you like it!

Lazy Sunday Gryffindor

Image

So I disappeared again…my bad. But hey, at least this time it was only for a couple of months and not 3 years! I was a little preoccupied/stressed out/ecstatic/overwhelmed. Basically, I got a job, frantically searched for apartments, moved to Manhattan, started said job, and essentially got a new life. Now I work a 9-5 in publishing and I’m absolutely loving it 🙂 Books, books, all of the books, all day, every day.

Anyway… on to the clothes! Of course I had to finish up this series. At first when I added in the necklace I second guessed myself, thinking, is this too many cats? The answer is no, there are never too many cats. I may be getting my inspiration from Hermione on this one, but I think many Gryffindors would be highly enthusiastic about wearing the domesticated version of their mascot. Plus, cats just automatically signal cozy/lazy to me. I may also be newly biased on this one since I now live with a cat and even though he’s not technically mine I still benefit from all of the cuddles and “biscuit making.” Anyway, I’m sorry I left you, and I hope you like this one 🙂

Lazy Sunday Hufflepuff

Standard

I saw this hedgehog mug earlier and I just knew that it was going to be perfect for this outfit! Hedgehogs are so stinkin’ cute, but they can also poke you if you anger them, so for me they just fit with Hufflepuff. I love the positive vibes in this outfit and the cheeriness of it. Yellow isn’t really my color (it sort of clashes with the red hair) but I still love it, and this is a really nice yellow that isn’t too bright and obnoxious but is just really warm and lovely. I hope you like it!

Ok, so I’m already sensing a theme here…I’m probably going to stick with the graphic tees, or at least some kind of graphic element in this series. It’s just a great and easy way to get a message across that fits with your personality or #mood for the day. Since I’m a feminist, I’m just projecting my attitude here, but I also feel like it’s pretty obvious that Slytherin women would be strong, confident, and probably identify with the #nastywoman message from this past campaign. I don’t doubt that many of them would aspire to be leaders and ambitious women like Hilary Clinton. In my head canon (and my ideal world), all women would be feminists, hence this lovely and daring outfit. Enjoy!

Soooo I’ve been gone a long time. Sorry friends. I went off and did some things (like get a Master’s degree) and now I’m back. I decided that I missed this blog and it needed to be revisited, so here I am! So let’s jump right in!  This series is going to be just some really chill outfits for when you just want to curl up with a book (like the entire Harry Potter series) and just snuggle for the whole day. This outfit is very me. I have an obscene number of mugs so all of these outfits will probably include a mug. What else are you supposed to do while reading other than drink tea or coffee?? Anyway. Of course our Ravenclaws are going to boast about their bookworm tendencies with a lovely graphic tee like this one. I hope you like it! And if any of my followers are still out there, I hope you come back to me, I miss you!

Spring Fever Gryffindor

Standard

Here’s the last installment of the Spring Fever series, and as always, we end with Gryffindor. I love the retro feel of the headband with the red stripes. The color of the sandals is so beautiful because it’s a nice burgundy mix of the reds and browns in the outfit. I have to admit though, my absolute favorite part of this outfit is the pair of Mufasa earrings. It’s so fun to add a little Disney touch (my other obsession) to this Harry Potter themed outfit. I hope you like it!
