Enchanting Night of Wizardry & Magic
When I was younger I used to believe in magic. It was so easy to get swept up in the world of foreign lands, dashing nights, and the whimsical world of Harry Potter. This series is one of my favorites and I recommend everyone reading, you're never too old to discover a great tale of adventure and self-discovery.
I was so excited to get invited to the Yule Gala at Hubbard Inn. The entire event was so thrilling everything was decorated to resemble Hogwarts. In fact, they had fun Harry Potter memorabilia adorning the entire upstairs of the Hubbard Inn. One of my favorites was a giant picture of Dumbledore hanging up on the wall, next to him a little treasure box with iridescent candles setting the perfect magical mood.
The drinks also had a splash of magic and I have to admit were pretty tasty. Another one of my favorite areas was decorated with letters hanging from the ceiling made to look like the scene where Harry receives his letter to Hogwarts. There's something so magical about that scene and it brought back this childish feeling inside of me. I mean c'mon who wouldn't want to receive that special letter and be whisked away to a world of magic?
A Magical Dress: One to Impress
Now, I have to admit it was quite difficult for me to pick the perfect outfit for this event. I knew that I had to wear something formal (cocktail attire) but I wanted to try and tie it to the movies somehow. Then I started thinking about the actual Yule ball scene from Harry Potter and one of my favorite dresses from that night was the silver ballgown on Fleur Delacour.
I started from there and knew that I wanted something resembling her dress. That is when I started asking my friends (which I normally do, perks of having lots of girlfriends). My best friend, Natalie, reminded me of this amazing dress that she got for New Years last year. After trying this dress on I felt magical in it. Not only did it slightly resemble the silver dress that Fleur wore but it added that extra dazzling effect that I was hoping for.
This beautiful electric dress is from Urban Outfitters from Silence & Noise. I loved how stretchy it was allowing me to move, dance, and sway throughout the dance floor. It's crisp and sleek texture is that perfect amount of bodacious glamour fit for any gala or formal event. I loved the mesh inlays below the bust, down the length of the sides and at the back topping it off with a halter neck and open back. This can also be a perfect New Years Eve outfit if you are going to a fancy hotel or event. The only issue I ran into with the dress is it's designed for taller people. I had to wear about 5 inch heels (I'm 5'5) for it to not drag on the floor. However, if you are looking for something beautiful and glamorous I recommend getting this gorgeous dress, fit for any magical occasion.
Until next time I hope you all have a fantastic Christmas Eve!
