Book Style: Harry Potter And The Sorcerer's Stone

Harry Potter And The Sorcerer's Stone

I don't know if I've ever discussed just how much of a Potterhead I am. Like full-fledged obsessed. I read the first book, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone the summer between my junior and senior year of high school while on vacation. Our family friends' granddaughter's copy was lying about and I picked it up out of boredom and I didn't put it back down until I'd read the final lines. I was hooked. I managed to read the next 3 books by borrowing them from various children in my life (usually my cousin's step-kids). By that time, I was caught up and waiting for the next publication dates. My anxiety doesn't allow for midnight release chaos, but I was at Barnes & Noble each of the following weeks consuming too many danishes, bagels and coffees as I read through the fresh hardcovers. For those of you who may poo-poo reading books in a bookstore for free, I took immaculate care of the books, never stained, creased or bent the spines (that's why I only read hardcovers this way) and I did eventually buy the boxed set! Anyways. I love this series and have recently been doing yet another reread of it. I'm currently in the middle of Half Blood Prince and I have been reminded why that film infuriates me with 1) How many plot points got changed or omitted and 2) What they did to my strong, fierce Ginny... grrr. All this blather is my way of introducing a new Book Style series on the Potter books. Gotta have something to occupy myself until November and the release of Fantastic Beasts!

Okay onto the outfit. Toss a Hogwarts tee under your very own Gryffindor Quidditch varsity jacket. Slip into a pair of "Harrys" distressed skinny jeans and slide your feet into a pair of Gryffindor socks and a pair of "Wizard" boots. A Gryffindor headband will keep those untamed Hermione-esque curls in check and this adorable "Owl Post" clutch is the perfect place to stash your invisibility cloak or wand. For jewelry we have a Gryffindor charm necklace, a "Wizardly" onyx bracelet, a beautiful pair of "Sorcerer" earrings, and, of course, A Golden Snitch ring.

Which of the books are you most excited to see an outfit for? I'm looking forward to Half Blood Prince when I can really break into the Slytherin colors! Being a Slytherin, myself, and all.
