I Solemnly Swear That I Am Up to No Good

I’ve been feeling quite nostalgic over Harry Potter lately, especially since Hot Topic started coming out with all these amazing HP accessories and dresses! Since us Potterheads have awhile to wait the for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them movie to be released, and also for the Wizarding World of Harry Potter to open at Universal Studios in Hollywood, CA (both are supposedly slated for 2016, which feels VERY far away — also, some of us west coasters don’t have the money or desire to make the trek to Florida to visit the WWHP there… it’s so bloody hot and humid!), this, to me, feels like a way to hold me over until then. I’m also planning on re-visiting the book series since it’s been too long since I last read them. Right now I’m reading The Tales of Beedle the Bard for funsies.

I saw this Marauder’s Map dress at Hot Topic last month and wanted to cry over both how beautiful it was and also for the fact that the store I saw it in didn’t have it in my size. Then I went online and it was sold out in my size too, nor did the store in my town have it. First World Problems, right? Ugh! But, the the sale associate looked it up and there were two left at the store in Modesto (hometown of George Lucas and Jeremy Renner), so I had them put it on hold and made the 45 minute trek to pick it up. The things we do for material items sometimes, y’know? It was totally worth the drive though! I paired the dress with my mustard yellow cardigan that I found at a thrift store to rep my Hufflepuffness, and borrowed my mom’s Kate Spade owl purse because how perfect does it look with this dress? Harry Potter and owls just makes sense… like peanut butter and jelly, or Tonks and Lupin. The Harry Potter necklace I made goes perfectly with it too. 🙂

How’re my fellow Potterheads holding up?

Cheers,
Nina

  1. I totally agree with you that 2016 seems so far away. I am very excited to have the west coast HP world built. I’m dealing with it the same way you are and wore my time turner necklace today!

  2. Oh my gosh! You look incredible. I need one of those dresses. I love the way you’ve put this outfit together, and each piece teams so perfectly with all the others.
    I’m planning on having a Harry Potter marathon this weekend. it’s been far too long since I watched all the films, and even longer since I read the books.

  3. You look so adorable. I love your little owl bag and that dress is so incredible. I wish we had Hot Topic here in Australia. They seem to have the most amazing array of fandom clothing. 😦
