if i went to Hogwarts

Ever since my pointer finger and thumb latched onto the first page of the first Harry Potter book book (Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone) i have been hooked like really hooked to the point one year for Halloween i frizzed up my hair and carried a wizard book with me and went as Hermione Granger (i also talked in a British accent) and also to prove i am an active supporter of my religion while fighting the urge to fall into a deep slumber i watched the last movie (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2) at midnight (i also dressed up for this even, pictures will never be revealed). Harry Potter unleashed the very geeky Hermione side of me to the point that if i was asked any trivia question on the subject i would answer correctly ever time. I have also read each of the books at least 3 times and have watched each of the movies a dozen times each (at least ) wow i am ashamed. Sooo you can say i have a little bit of an obsession which i like to call a religion but that's OK.
But the only problem that occurs with my relationship with the Harry Potter series is that of those hideous Hogwarts Uniforms known as robes so i dedicated much of my valued time to create a new uniform for the magical students of Hogwarts (the uniform is what i would wear to Hogwarts ignoring the dress code)
























do you know in french Voldemort means flight of death


And now hold the applause i bestow now upon you grateful muggle the uniform i would wear to Hogwarts most days because let's face it i can't wear the same thing for a few hours let alone a whole year. Let's face it a day
So let's break it down, 
Hogwarts robes draped dramatically over shoulders- my Halloween costume from 3 years ago you can get it here if your that big of a geek that you need a Hogwarts uniform to reenact the famous scene wear Hermione punches Malfoy in his pale face "take that you pureblood"
White professional looking pants- (J.crew) a staple in an British muggle's closet because you need some fancy day wear to match that fancy accent.
Cream colored cardigan- (hand me down) because adding a little British couture can't hurt.
Green Utility vest- (J.crew similar one here) i just felt like Man-ing it up a bit 
Dress tucked into Schoolish white pants- (free people) tucking in something gives a very "school approved look"
wand held all voldemortish in right hand- (Ollivanders) My wand contains one crimson phoenix feather 
(this "wand" is legally a chopstick that has chopsticked many find meals of noodles)

And now below enjoy the "uniform" without all that reading surrounding it and also enjoy me staring blankly at the camera.



And now onto the one of many things i over do in life accessories.
#1 is a medal i won from playing Quiditch (because sticking a broom in between my legs like a horse has been one of my favorite pass times since i was little muggle) 
#2 is my lame attempt at making a deathly hallows symbol as you can see i only got the circle part down (Resurrection stone)
#3 my cool locket that turns back time if closed (because all wizards need a magical thing around there neck) 

And now below you can see my Forever 21  tights turned socks adding a preppy vibe with its brethren the heeled oxfords (Francesca's collections) because nothing says British more then oxfords.


And now view this beautiful picture of me staring down at my dog
