Happy Friday, my lovely readers!
As you may, or may not, know – one of my Christmas presents this year was tickets to the Harry Potter set tour at Warner Bros Studios in Watford. Being a complete and utter Harry Potter nerd, you can imagine my excitement when I found out!
I decided to wear my new charity shop shirt to rock the dark, gothic floral trend of AW12:
Vintage shirt – £3
I paired the shirt with jeggings, thick socks and Chelsea-style boots for a look that was comfy and casual, yet fashionable.
I then added a vintage leather jacket to toughen up the look, and a warm, cream scarf in order to battle the cold:
Needless to say, the set tour was amazing! I was astounded. You don’t realise how much hard work goes into creating the sets, props and costumes for the films. Just being able to walk round the place where they filmed a lot of the scenes blew my mind.
I don’t want to spoil it for people who haven’t been, therefore I’m only going to upload a few photo highlights. But if you’re a fan of Harry Potter, you should definitely go if you get the opportunity! It’s not to be missed.

In the Great Hall:
Admiring Dumbledore’s office:
Exploring Diagon Alley:
Buying my first Butterbeer:
It’s very tasty! Sweet, creamy and not quite fizzy – but certainly scrumptious!
Outside Number 4, Privet Drive:
And, finally, the pride and joy of the Art department – a 1:24 scale model of Hogwarts – which was really impressive:
I also bought myself a few goodies from the gift shop (it had to be done!):
My favourite is the Deathly Hallows symbol necklace. Expensive, but SO WORTH IT. It’s incredibly cool:
I can’t wait to wear it!
God bless you J.K Rowling for the magic that is Harry Potter!
