Ballet Night Slytherin


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

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!

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 🙂
