Pink tweed suit from eBay (I had to alter this from a size 18 to an 8 which was a feat), top from Etsy, dagger collar shirt from Ebay, Tan bowling bag from Rokit in Covent garden - it used to be my school bag in year 8 -, cream converse, topshop socks, button barrette I found that I glued last summer.
Last Saturday was me living out many Harry Potter/fangirl dreams in one go. I dressed vicariously through Dolores Umbridge (I found myself searching vintage tweed suit on eBay a month ago and found a garish pink one for £12(it was by accident but everyone has been telling me it's in her vein) and saw Jessie Cave's comedy show Bookworm at the Soho Theatre. (Jessie Cave played Lavender Brown in Harry Potter.) I discovered her website pindippy pretty much exactly a year ago and have followed her twitter/videos/instagrams ever since. I wrote a typical fangirl email to her last June/July but never sent it and once she favourited my tweet at about 1am and it was the highlight of my day/biology lesson being able to tell fellow fandom obsessee Abi the next morning. I went with my mum for my birthday because London is like, 2 hours away so it was a bit of a trek to get there. The show itself was amazing and exceeded expectations. I would definitely recommend it and do sit in the front row because her sister Bebe will give you gingerbread. If you want a more accurate less contained version of events see here. I think I may be going again this month but then again maybe not - It depends on travel arrangements and stuff, but do go! I may meet you! We can discuss Jessie Cave over the internet together afterwards!
Me, cakes in Soho.
My feet on the floor of a bookshop in Soho.
Some film photos from last weekend. The top one at Baker Street station was going to be the outfit photo part of this post but I opened the back of the camera by accident while I was absent mindedly fiddling with stuff so it has a light leak. I had bjork buns last Saturday because my hair was too long and dead and horrible. I had it cut yesterday though so I took some photos today, hence why my hair is down in them.
I think Dolores Umbridge's office is severely underrated.
The cat plates, desk, balloon lamp, curtains, carpet.
See mohair, lace and chaise lounge.
Note tea cup.
Notice boucle cape and brooch.
It's half term now so I'm catching up with outfit posts. I've done over half of my exams and they have been ok to good with the exception of Physics. God help me with physics. After June 17th I am free for the summer so I'm counting down already.
