Spiders and Stripes

After years of considering myself a Ravenclaw, I was recently sorted (via Pottermore) into Slytherin. So though I may be sporting a spider instead of a snake here, I'm still wearing some Slytherin worthy green with what I can imagine is a house favorite color for clothing, black of course.

Annnnd...I'm a Harry Potter nerd. Really I just had to wear these new gloves, because look at them! So happy to have these emerald green gloves in my collection now <3 I recently snatched up a pair in olive green too! Now if I could only fulfill my new dream and find chartreuse gloves, but they seem to be in high demand and quite rare. If I do film another haul video this fall it will be all about gloves because I have still been going glove crazy. My hat on the other hand you may remember as I have worn it here on the blog before, with this exact same dress! I just think the two go together so well. Both this hat and the fabric for this dress were splurges at the time (this fabric was $19 a yard which is much more than I normally spend on fabric), so its a good thing I adore them! I need to figure out some other outfits to wear with this hat...

I didn't get as much done as I wanted to this weekend, but I never do! I did get some cleaning done, and some rest in, and since both were much needed I suppose that will have to do for now. I'm waiting for things to calm down a bit so I can get some real work done, and finally get some sewing (I haven't so much as turned on my machine for weeks!) going again too! I need at least one spooky October day full of gothic films and pumpkin spice everything too, so hopefully I can fit that in somewhere. I hope you are all well this week and I'll be back with more posts soon!

  1. The fabric drapes beautifully in that dress, worth the splurge! It's looking nice and autumnal with you, the pumpkin spice and spooky film sounds like a nice way to spend some time. I never get everything done I want to do though either!
    Good luck finding your chartreuse gloves, you'll find them eventually I'm sure x

    1. Thank you Porcelina! The hunt for chartreuse accessories continues ever on...

  2. I love that hat, the stripes are so happy looking, always good to see it again. I think there should be more chartreuse everywhere, one of my favourite colours.
