Necklace - thrifted, dress - W118 by Walter Baker, bracelet - gift, shoes - See by Chloe
New dress and new shoes. I've become slightly addicted to online shopping, especially when the shop is eBay. It's mostly just browsing, but it's time consuming. I like these sandals, but I can't tell if they're trying to be brown or gray. In real life, they look brown, but in these photos, they seem gray. And this dress... in photos, it looks like a cosmic nebula galaxy sort of print, but it's just tie dye on a material that's normally reserved for athletics. Regardless, I'm quite fond, and it's quite comfy. The elastic waist doesn't seem like it'll cause too much sweating, which can be a problem during hot days.
This outfit is simple. I know simple suits me - effortless at best, boring at worst - but I do wish to break out of my comfort shell a little. I have a few more new garments, including a slightly absurd but seriously cool retro-inspired dress from Asos. I just need to get dressed more, is what it comes down to.
Oh, and it's entirely obligatory to mention the premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Part II) since I've been a HP nerd since I can remember. Second grade? Third grade? It all blurs together, but Harry Potter is a symbol of my childhood. So many nights spent staying up too late reading... and rereading and rereading. I even read the seventh book twice in the two weeks since its release, mostly because I was in denial that the paper part was over. And now the film portion's here - for some reason I'm getting all emotional about it, even though we all know the books are so much better. This is the end of the saga.
I expect to be hysterically crying by the time I leave the theater.
